9z will miss next RMR event
9z lineup will not attend the first RMR tournament of the new season in South America. It was announced by the CEO of the Argentine organization Francisco Postiglione in his Twitter.
According to the posted information, the team was disqualified from CBCS Elite League Season 1 because it will not return home on the scheduled dates from Europe, where it participated in the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2021. According to the head of 9z, nearby flights to Argentina have been canceled amid worsening epidemiological conditions.
The place of 9z at the upcoming tournament will be taken by Furious, which lost the slot match against Black Dragons in the qualifiers. In the opening game, the Argentine team will face MIBR, the main favorite of the competition.
CBCS Elite League Season 1 will run from April 22-May 16. Participants will win 5,800 RMR points and ~$18,000 in prize money.
