ECS has announced that after a successful season with new additions Sean "Gratisfaction" Kaiwai and Jay "liazz" Tregillgas, Renegades previously booked ticket to the ECS Season 6 Finals has been torn up and reprinted in favor of Cloud9 due to "visa issues and scheduling conflicts".

With a majority Oceanic lineup, Renegades are back home to participate in the Asia Minor Oceania Closed Qualifier taking place on November 18th through to the 19th, and are slated to appear at Toyota Masters Bangkok, which will overlap the ECS Finals from the 21st to the 25th.

In the case of Cloud9, their mediocre season filled with roster changes and the retiring of Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham caused the team to finish in 5th place with a 10-8 record. The move results in NRG maintaining their top spot, MIBR taking the second seed and Liquid the third.
