Its only a few days before the big event and fans are still hungry for every little announcement in an effort to draw a picture of what is to come in the Galaxy Battles II.
Just hours ago, an announcement came saying that Team Empire withdraws and will not participate in the upcoming Galaxy Battles II. Aleksandr “StrangeR” Solomonov, sports director of Team Empire, explained that the team initially wanted to attend the event despite the fact that they won’t be incurring any Pro Circuit Points should they win.
Before Team Empire withdraws, their attendance was even posted in the Galaxy Battles’ Facebook page, stating them as one of the wild cards teams alongside Skyville and PG.Barracx.
Team Empire’s Announcement
The team did not withdraw without reason. In their announcement, Aleksandr “StrangeR” Solomonov revealed that some of the players are sick and that time zones differences and travel may aggravate their conditions. While others may be skeptical about the truthfulness of this announcement, the fact that Team Empire withdraws from the tournament will not change.
Initially we planned to visit Galaxy Battles II even despite losing the status of Major, but appreciating the circumstances it was decided not to participate in this tournament. Health is most important – the flight and the change of time zones can aggravate the condition of sick players. We will spend our free time on restoration and preparation for future tournaments and qualifications.
The Facebook announcement was then filled with varying comments, mostly from Filipino fans.
Fallout Gaming’s Response
Hours later, Fallout Gaming wished Team Empire’s sick players a speedy recovery. They posted an image stating that Team Empire withdraws from Galaxy Battles.
