MIBR & Hard Legion replaced at IEM New York by ESL following RMR point reset
Two teams out of the tournament followed by a reset in MMR points.
Both of the teams, MIBR and Hard Legion are announced as replaced at the IEM New York due to their Regional Major Ranking points being reset after recently when both the team coaches were found exploiting a spectating bug.
As a result, the organization immediately released coaches of each team but the punishment still reflects on the team.
