forZe played with two stand-in’s owing to the absence from Bogdan "xsepower" Chernikov and Dmitriy "facecrack" Alexeev who was out because of personal reasons. Their replacements Eugene Yuryevich "Aunkere" Karyat and Volodymyr "Woro2k" Veletniuk helped the rest of the team, in a dominant showing at the European qualifier by winning both matches against Anonymo and HellRaisers, without giving up a single map.
