Team Liquid won’t take part at DreamHack ASTRO Open Winter 2017 due to visa issues. A substitute will be announced shortly.
Team Liquid are one of the CS:GO teams that got a direct invite to DreamHack Winter. Today, the organization released a long statement, explaining that they decided to withdraw from the tournament due to two main factors:
- The visa problems of their coach Wilton “zews” Prado. They are already working on a reliable solution, but meanwhile the team agreed to not attend the tournament because they wouldn’t be able to show a satisfactory performance without their coach.
- Their calendar is quite full. Liquid is participating in multiple leagues, and the players really need a rest to preserve their health.
