Fnatic said the following via Twitter:
Unfortunately we won't be attending #IEM Cologne. We would like to thank all of our fans for the support during these times!
They will be being replaced by European LCS team ROCCAT, who came second in our Intel Extreme Masters Cologne European poll.
The Polish team, headed by Remigiusz “Overpow” Pusch, originally collected 29% of the fan votes behind Gambit, and only just missed out on receiving an initial invite to the tournament. Filling in for Fnatic, they will now have the chance to compete in Cologne, and we are looking forward to their performance.
