UK esports organisation Fourth Wall have been forced to withdraw from the upcoming NLC Division 1 Promotion/Relegation tournament, organisers announced this evening.

The NLC official account on X said that ‘internal circumstances at Fourth Wall has led to them not being able to field a complete roster for the upcoming matches’.

Fourth Wall head of operations, Newts, said he done everything he could to field a team, but was unable to, due to things beyond his control, and added that the situation is frustrating.

Esports News UK understands that some of the starting players were unable to play, and Fourth Wall had attempted to use substitutes. But ultimately they weren’t able to field an entire roster.

NLC Division 1 Promotion/Relegation tournament down to three teams

With Fourth Wall automatically falling to NLC Division 2 now, this leaves three teams in the NLC Division 1 Promotion/Relegation tournament.

There’s Venomcrest, who were due to play Fourth Wall, plus UniQ and Lundqvist Lightside.

NLC organisers said that the tournament bracket ‘will change a bit’ given there are now three teams in the promo tournament, rather than the usual four.
