A last minute replacement was found for Team Dignitas, who were set to face Furious Gaming in the Quarter Finals of IEM Sao Paulo starting January 28th. The North American LCS team failed to obtain visas in time to take part in the Brazilian event and couldn’t be replaced by another North American team at such a short notice. The recently formed “OceloteWorld” were able and willing to take their place at a two days’ notice.
Headed by former SK Gaming captain, the OceloteWorld line-up is comprised of:
Carlos 'Ocelote' Santiago Rodriguez - Mid Lane
Jesper 'Jwaow' Strandgren - Top Lane
Sebastián 'Morden' Esteban Fernández - Jungle
Haïdar 'Haydal' Mezidi - AD Carry
Hugo 'Dioud' Padioleau - Support
Their debut game will not take place in the scheduled 18:00 GMT-2 time slot Dignitas was originally set to play in. Ocelote’s team will instead play their match on Wednesday.
