HellRaisers have announced that they have pulled out of the CIS qualifiers for ESWC 2015.
The Ukrainian-Russian-Kazakh mixture were due to compete in the qualifier, which will kick off on Tuesday at Moscow Cyber Stadium, and looked like a strong favourite to win the title after Natus Vincere received an invitation to the main event.
However, problems with the documents of some of HellRaisers' players have forced the team to cancel their participation in this tournament, according to manager Vladyslava Zakhliebina.

FlipSid3 Tactics, who crashed out of DreamHack Summer in the group stage, are now widely expected to come out on top of the ESWC qualifier.
The groups for this tournament are as follows:
