Pittner "bOne7" Armand will be unable to make his ESL One Seeding matches due to surgery according to Cloud9 Captain, EternaLEnVy. Cloud9 Dota manager Conrad Janzen has told theScore that the team will be performing with a stand-in, but is still looking for a suitable replacement.
bOne7 underwent having his wisdom teeth removed days after his return from China but the procedure was done poorly. Due to these unforeseen complications his recovery has taken longer than expected. We are currently seeking a stand-in, as requested by ESL, for the Cologne seeding event but bOne7 will be back playing the main event in Frankfurt.
The ESL One Seeding Bracket takes place Thursday, June 18th. No teams will be eliminated from this stage; it will determine the match-ups played in the single elimination Main Event taking place June 20-21.
The tournament takes place in Frankfurt, Germany and will feature a total prize pool of $285,582 (as of June 16).
Update: Cloud9's Dota manager, Conrad Janzen, has announced Pascal "paS" Lohmeier as their stand-in for the seeding bracket. Lohmeier has experience playing for Team Dog/mousesports and currently plays for German team GOOMBA Gaming.
