Within a few short hours of each other, Gambit and Na'Vi have both withdrawn from the ESL One Mumbai 2019 qualifiers. The ESL One Mumbai 2019 qualifiers are set to begin in just two days.
Only four teams will lock horns for the one allocated spot split between EU and CIS regions. Originally it was Alliance, Na'Vi, Gambit Esports and Elements Pro Gaming who were listed to compete.
The CIS/European region will be undergoing significant lineup changes for the qualifier. Alliance, who was slated to be competing had just accepted a direct invite only three days ago joining Ninjas in Pyjamas in the main event.
The Pango has since been added to replace the Swedish stack. Now, Na'Vi has announced their withdrawal citing a busy schedule. Merely hours later, the famed Russian studio Maincast reported that Gambit has also pulled out of the qualifier event.
Twelve teams will be competing for a slice of the $300,000 prize pool April 19-21st. There will be seven directly invited teams and five qualified teams from NA, EU/CIS, China, SEA, and India.
