  • SK Gaming Prime and Ninjas in Pyjamas were unable to field complete rosters and so dropped out of the Expansion Tournament.
  • The roster of Unlucky Rejects was acquired by Copenhagen Wolves and so did not participate in the Expansion Tournament.[2]
  • sFera Gaming decided to compete in the Challenger scene in order to maintain their roster, including an underage player, and so did not compete in the Expansion Tournament.[3]
