Germany-based organisation mousesports have followed in the footsteps of Astralis by yesterday announcing their withdrawal from EPICENTER 2018. The CS:GO tournament, which is taking place in Moscow, will commence in just eight days.

Mousesports cited a "very packed schedule" as the reason that they have pulled out of the upcoming event.

That echoes Astralis's reasoning behind their own withdrawal from the same competition, when they blamed "a very tough period with a massive traveling schedule," after which they felt "forced to give the players time to recover." However, an unnamed reason could be the ongoing roster drama that is reportedly seeing Snax replaced by STYKO on the starting line-up.

Now, EPICENTER have announced mousesports' replacement: HellRaisers, with AVANGAR moving into the tournament's group stage as a result.

HellRaisers' presence means that we once know the full roster of invited teams taking part at the event:

Group stage

Natus Vincere
FaZe Clan
— Ninjas in Pyjamas
— Team Liquid

LAN qualifier

— Swole Patrol
— ENCE eSports
— HellRaisers
