1 Team SoloMid's active stand-in, Canada Twistzz, is too young to participate and will be replaced by Denmark cadiaN. [8]
2 Due to scheduling and visa issues, TyLoo will not attend ELEAGUE. They are replaced by Selfless Gaming. [9]
3 Denmark zonic stood in for Denmark karrigan for the first day of the group stage due to his ESTA application being declined. [10]
4 Team Liquid and Counter Logic Gaming swap USA jdm64 and USA koosta, therefore the latter will be playing for CLG in the last chance bracket. [11]
5 SK Gaming part ways with their Danish lineup and acquire the former roster of Luminosity Gaming after both parties agreed to end contract disputes. The former SK lineup now reside under Team X. [12]
6 SK Gaming and Team X are disqualified for roster changes that "do not comply with ELEAGUE rules". [13] This results in the (previously eliminated) Renegades and Gambit Gaming instead advancing to the Last Chance qualifier and Cloud9 automatically advancing to the playoffs.
7 France Fuks will stand in for France RpK starting with the Last Chance Qualifier due to the latter having a perforated eardrum. [14]
8 Russia DavCost will be replacing Russia spaze in the Last Chance Qualifier due to health issues of the latter. [15]
9 Australia Rickeh joins Renegades after Australia SPUNJ's retirement
