Three SK teams at EM thanks to deathknights

ImageIn an unexpected move, EM finalists Kill e A have decided not to attend the tournament. SK.Asia will take their place.

We've seen Asian teams miss tournaments before due to visas, lack of funding or even disbandment. But Kill e A's decision to leave Extreme Masters just three weeks before the finals is based on something quite different, "...our testing has shown that it is now impossible for other classes to compete effectively with the Death Knight," said Sang-Yeol 'miracle' Lee.

In a statement published on ESL's website, the Korean went on to say that the team would not be competing until the game is balanced in their eyes: "We have decided to withdraw our participation from all competitions for the time being until these imbalance issues are rectified."

It has already been confirmed that SK.US will be running with a deathknight themselves and the chances of them being the only team to do so are slim. Although Lee's feelings are echoed by many in the WoW community, kill e A's loss is definitely SK's gain.

SK manager, Min-Sik 'reis' Ko, was naturally delighted by the opportunity: "This event is going to be awesome because SK got all three WoW teams there and the Korean guys are really excited about going to Germany."

With three teams attending the event in Hanover next month, Ko was optimistic about SK's chances: "My prediction is 1st - 3rd place - all SK!"
