The status of woxic’s visa was first put into question as the Unites States and Turkey mutually suspended their visa services earlier this month. The political turmoil resulted in the Turkish player being unable to get the visa to the U.S. in time for competition. In turn, HellRaisers withdrew from the tournament after qualifying through the European closed qualifier.
Woxic joined HellRaisers along with Issa “ISSAA” Murad on a trial basis in August to replace Martin “STYKO” Styk and Vlаdуslаv “bondik” Nеchуроrchuk. He was added to the roster a month later on a permanent basis.
LDLC will compete with Cloud9, Renegades, BIG, Tempo Storm, Counter Logic Gaming, NRG Esports and mousesports in the inaugural DreamHack Denver, a $100,000 event that runs Friday through Sunday. The competing roster for LDLC consists of Kevin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans, Antoine “to1nou” Pirard, Alex “ALEX” McMeekin, Mathieu “Maniac” Quiquerez, and Timothée “DEVIL” Démolon.
