The announcement that DE Team ALTERNATE will replace CN Invictus Gaming comes as a late surprise to many. The iG situation cannot be helped but it has left many wondering why FR against All authority have not been selected.

Both aAa and Alternate have 15 points on the circuit but no reason has been given why the Germans have been chosen.

The full release from the ESL is as follows:

The Chinese team iG had their visa application rejected and will not be able to travel to the World Championship. The replacement will be Team Alternate.
The German team placed 13th in the Intel Extreme Masters Season 2011/12 ranking, one rank short of qualifying for Hanover. Now the current German ESL Pro Series champion will have their chance against the best teams in the world from the 6-10th of March in Hanover.

ALTERNATE will take iG's spot in Group A where prominent names such as CLG, fnatic or World Elite are awaiting them.

What are your thoughts, should a match between aAa and Alternate have taken place?
