Origen captain and mid laner Enrique "xPeke" Cedeno-Martinez will not be participating in the All-Stars Los Angeles 2015 event, he announced in a Facebook post on Sunday.

Hey everyone!I wanted to give you a quick update to let you know what unfortunately I won’t be attending all stars...

Despite receiving the majority of the vote, xPeke decided to cede his spot at the event in order to focus on the future of Origen

"As I’m sure you can imagine, business never really calms down and we are busy working on lots of cool things you will see next year," he explained in his statement.

"I feel that this would be lots of fun but I would rather save my strength and stay focused on the work I need to do instead of travelling and playing. I know it’s a short event, but it’s still tiring and dealing with priorities is very important for the future of Origen."

All-Stars is the second event this offseason in which xPeke will not play, the first being IEM San Jose where he was replaced by new backup mid laner Tristan "PowerofEvil" Schrage.

At this time xPeke's replacement for the event is unknown.
