Wardell pulls out of the subtLe roster due to ESL Pro League

After recent news of Anthony "gMd" Guimond and Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik electing not to participate with the FRENCH CANADIANS/Onliners roster competing in the upcoming WESG Finals, free agent Jonathan "Jonji" Carey and Matthew "Wardell" Bowman of Ghost have bowed out as well for the subtLe roster.

Like those before him, Wardell has declined to take part in the international competition due to obligations in ESL Pro League. Jonji, however, continues to assert that he is, at least for now, in a state of early retirement.

In their place, subtLe are hoping to field Tyson "TenZ" Ngo and Ellis "els" Clay, has learned. TenZ was recently benched by BlackOut after competing with the core of the team for the past three seasons of MDL. els, on the other hand, is a long-time Kyle "OCEAN" O'Brien collaborator.

The potential subtLe WESG roster looks like:

  • ca Kyle "OCEAN" O'Brien
  • ca Terry "dsr" Rioux
  • ca Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne
  • ca Ellis "els" Clay
  • ca Tyson "TenZ" Ngo

The WESG Finals will take place March 12-18 in Haikou, China where 32 teams will battle it out for a share of the $1,500,000 prize pool.

I don't understand why people would sign up, play in these qualifiers, and then NOT attend. Other people would love the chance to compete for the ridiculous $1.5M prize pool.

literally, it's not like qualifying for a lan when you have to pay your own fees.

A lot of the players dropping out were bubble players that were unsure of whether or not they'd be competing in EPL this coming season. Because of the nature of the tournament and it requiring 5 players from the same country, you see a lot of pugs put together. So some players drop out once they have a team set in stone and other obligations (sometimes contractual).
