ESL have announced that the Unicorns of Love will be replacing Fnatic at Intel Extreme Masters San Jose after Fnatic were forced to withdraw "due to health issues of one of the players."

Fnatic got their ticket to the event through a fan vote, though they certainly deserved the slot after their fantastic Summer Split and Top 4 finish at Worlds. Unicorns of Love are their replacements as the third most popular team in the fan vote (after Origen).

Unicorns of Love have not yet announced a full roster after losing both H0R0 and PowerOfEvil a little over a week ago. Ironically, PowerOfEvil will now be pitted against his former team as Origen recently announced that he would be joining them as their new alternate mid laner.

IEM San Jose takes place Nov. 21 to 22 at the SAP Center in San Jose.
