The Intel Extreme Masters gamescom will take place without superstar MMA. He stated that he does not feel in good enough shape at the moment to participate. SuperNova will take his spot in Group D, playing his first tournament under the banner of mTw.
Hours after the groups for the season opening tournament at gamescom were announced, MMA approached our staff to cancel his participation. He stated that he does not feel in good enough shape currently to play in the event.
As a result SuperNoVa, who came in third in the Korea/Taiwan qualification, will take MMA's spot in Group D. His opponents are going to be HasuObs, VortiX and KiLLeR.
The first event of the 2012/13 season of the Intel Extreme Masters will take place from the 15-19th of August at the gamescom in Cologne, Germany. 24 players will participate in the StarCraft II tournament which boosts a $31.800 prize pool.
