Charleroi Esports, a ~$113,000 Belgian event that was announced in November, has announced the cancellation of the North American qualifier for their event.
As we said, the amount of teams and the global level didn't reached our expectations and therefore, we took the decision to cancel the Qualifier and invite another team. More informations soon.— Charleroi Esports (@CharleroiEsport) March 6, 2019
The fact that only four teams signed up for the qualifier should not come as any shock, considering that the only advertising undertaken by the organization seems to have been tweeting at French CS:GO outlets, various FACEIT accounts, and North American professional organizations.
The tournament organizer have also announced the English talent for the event, which will be:
- Dean Brown - Commentator
- Harvey "skriv" Rodgers - Commentator
The duo were slated to cast the iBUYPOWER Masters, before Dean Brown was unable to attend and replaced by Daniel "ddk" Kapadia.
The current team list for the April event is:
|Europe Qualifier||Europe Qualifier|
|Asia Qualifier||North America Invite|
