The other dropout is Daniel 'Xlord' Spenst. Traveling from Germany to France is not a problem but he felt that he lacked practice for the event. "I would like to participate at the ESWC tournament," he told Fragster.de "but I lacked the preparation." Despite being removed from team Alternate recently, it appears that he would have received funding. However, he simply felt it was pointless to attend with no practice.
Xlord must have told ESWC beforehand, since he was not grouped although he was given a "seed" status. Fly, on the other hand, was one of the high seeds and is almost always one of the favourites for any event he plays in. He would have been in Group A alongside another of the favourites, Manuel 'Grubby' Schenkhuizen.
