The North American team had to pull out of the championship due to the reason that they lost two players who helped the team to make it to the Minor tournament. Initially, a match between Luminosity and Team Envy was supposed to be held to define the participant of the minor, however, Envy reported about their intention to perform at Intel Extreme Masters Chicago 2019 so the players withdrew as a candidate.
