European Heroes of the Storm organization ExcelenteEleccion has announced their roster for the 2017 Heroes Global Championship, and it includes Arturs "bkbgrnrjefek" Hlibovs instead of Maksym "Mopsio" Szczypa.

In a tweet Wednesday, the organization confirmed the full roster that would compete in the qualifiers for the European Pro League.

Besides the addition of bkb, rest of the roster is the same as the one fielded by the organization for the second EU Fall Regional at Gamescom. They came 5th-6th in that tournament, going out in the group stage with a win against The Jabronis but losses to GoogleIshetZont and Misfits.

Mopsio tweeted Wednesday morning that he would be reforming CrowingCocks with an all-Russian/Polish roster, but didn't include a list of players. At the time of publication, the team was not one of the 31 participants registered on the event's Battlefy page.

The qualifiers for the EU 2017 HGC are set to start Nov. 19, and there are sure to be other roster surprises before the action gets underway.
