Fenix qualified through the South American qualifier, but was reported to not be able to participate in the main tournament, only one day before it would start. Brazilian Zerg player DakkoN would be invited as a replacement, as he reached the quarter-final of said qualifier, and due to the fact that any non-Brazilian player would not be able to make it to Sao Paulo on such a short notice.[1]
