King Mvp and President MC are forfeiting their spots for the WCS Korea representation.
On August 14th, GOMTV announced that Mvp and MC had forfeited before the losers' bracket matches began. The reason being that both players will be attending Gamescom.
Gamescom is a tournament being held from August 16th - 19th in Cologne, Germany. An event that Mvp and MC will attend.
The two players will be accompanied by NesTea, JYP, Bomber, and Oz who will attempt the IEM global challenge open bracket. Mvp will also be doing a fan signing at a booth provided by sponsor LG. http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=360240
Mvp was scheduled to play for WCS on the 14th and MC was scheduled to play on the 15th. Unfortunately, even if both players won their matches, they would have to play the next round during the 16th and 17th so they had no choice but to forfeit their spots.
LG-IM's coach, coach Kang stated that "attending Gamescom was something we had been planning for a while now. I wanted our players to do well in the WCS and provide great games for the fans but the times just didn't work out for us so I want to apologize to the fans and GOMTV."
With Mvp and MC's forfeit, LG-IMHappy and StarTale_Hack will automatically advance to the next round in the losers' bracket.
