HEN1 and Luminosity are headed to Berlin
StarLadder have announced that Luminosity will replace Lazarus at the StarLadder Major Berlin Americas Minor. The cause for this is roster complications regarding Pujan "FNS" Mehta and Tyson "TenZ" Ngo, who recently signed with Cloud9.
In truth, it has been an uphill battle for Lazarus since the beginning of their Major campaign, as they were automatically forced to find a replacement for Braxton "swag" Pierce, and then an additional player when they signed Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker from Bad News Bears.
StarLadder also noted in their announcement that Luminosity would have been set to face Envy for the spot, but the latter team have opted to stick with attending IEM Chicago.
The revised list of teams attending the Americas Minor is:
The Americas Minor will commence on July 17th, and send two of the above teams through to the StarLadder Major Berlin Main Qualifier.

It was supposed that Luminosity and @Envy will fight for this slot, but Envy refused to do this, since they were taking part in IEM Chicago. So the place goes to the Luminosity#cssltv #StarLadder_CSGO_Minor pic.twitter.com/iRj6nk4WX5
