Min-Sik Ko has reveled that SK Gaming has been disqualified from the ELEAGUE Season 1 due to roster changes. The Brazilian team had secured a spot in the quarter finals after topping group A. The tournament’s commissioner tweeted that the Brazilian players recent move to SK Gaming ‘do not comply with the league’s rules.
Luminosity & SK Gaming are no longer eligible to compete in our first season due to roster changes that do not comply with @EL rules

The reason for this is that neither SK nor Luminosity can field the roster that they submitted at the start of the season, which means that the league’s spots belong to organisations and not to the competing teams.
Cloud9 have been moved from the last chance bracket straight to the playoffs of the ELEAGUE Season 1. SK Gaming captain Gabriel ‘Fallen’ Toledo also expressed his feelings towards the decision made by the tournament organizers.
