NRG member Peter "ptr" Gurney has announced via Twitter that he will miss the Counter Pit League Finals because of a broken foot.
The former CLG member was injured during his flight to Croatia, where the event will take place, after the plane experienced severe turbulence.
Peter "ptr" Gurney will have to undergo surgery immediately, ruling him out of the Counter Pit League Finals, which will kick off on Thursday.
The North American side currently have the following quartet available for the tournament:
Well family bad luck for sure... I broke my foot on the airplane because of bad turbulence. I won't be playing at the lan. Feelsbadman— Peter Gurney (@NRG_ptr) 14 March 2016

now imagine being possibly out of your seat for an undetectable CAT that the F/O could not have imagined as there were no METARs nor PIREPS to allow him to avoid it. moderate turbulence is considered .5g to 1g whereas severe can be 1-2. that goes up to a 60 foot drop in the matter of a second if the plane hits a nasty downdraft.
there are many more scenarios than breaking your foot in such a case, he may even have gotten off luckily.

interested in airplanes and stuff ? :D
Sometimes, CAT is predicted and we can find the symbol for CAT in aviation weather maps such as in the significant weather chart. In these weather charts we can see the flight level at what the occurrence of CAT is possible.

No not that different, at least he shall not use his leg. He should be able to play if he got just a bit painresistance. But yet again the problem is probably that he is pretty fragile ;)
I got hit by a car going about 30 mph and my face and left arm were basically both broken (By a "broken face" I mean I had a pyramid fracture and after 60 cracks the doctor stopped counting on the xray :/
My left arm got fucked up, but at least on every bio quiz I knew the Ulnar and Radial bones ;)
Also he says his arm was broken in half and split along the bone (I'm assuming along the length?) which sounds like an impossible break.
If his arm was actually broken like that, it would've been held together by muscle and would for sure have been bent.
If he had a stress fracture, he could've healed quickly and played and I would've believed him, but he's making it sound like he broke his arm in fucking half.
Shame about the car accident :(
Thanks though, and tbh I consider myself lucky because it could've been so much worse.
Still have a picture of me in the hospital ;(
Helmet def saved my head, and the cheeky fucker barely took any damage.
The driver and their family were really nice and you could tell the driver felt devastated.
We didn't sue or anything because for one, the intersection didn't have a stop sign even though the road is pretty curved and there were trees obstructing the view.
They visited and kept in touch throughout recovery.
I got pretty messed up, but besides my arm there was no permanent damage so we didn't want to cause someone to lose their car or home because of a mistake :/ especially since they were such nice people.
I was missing one of my reflectors so apparently it wasn't totally his fault.
Oh well, everything worked out so there's no reason for me to dwell on the past :D
An adult can stand pain better than a 4th grader so your argument is invalid ;)
next level lan dodging.

get well soon
However, airlines cannot always hide behind the "act of god" defense when passengers are injured in turbulence. For example, if the flight crew was able to foresee the turbulence (and often they can), but failed to warn passengers to fasten seat belts or otherwise take precautions to protect passengers from injury, the airline might be liable for passenger injuries. Similarly, if the pilot should have been able to predict the turbulence, but failed to do so due to lack of vigilance, the airline could be on the hook for injuries caused by the turbulence."
Just reading this would make me not do the hassle of suing.
Well...if you break your foot and you get a surgery, you need to keep your foot steadily higher than your knee (and your knee higher than your hip). That for couple of days (has to do something with swelling).
Hes stood in for Just9n and Silent3m teams in the past a few times.
Bet a German will fly over.

0-16 but still good example for NA pussies.
Real athletes who played through injuries that actually affect parts of their bodies they need to use to compete. There are many more, was trying to find the hockey player who played with a broken leg and scored the winning goal.
Ptr is a pussy hands down, and to miss the LAN finals ???? Joke.
get better soon...

rofl.. he should join TrashSM
Anyways, good recovery man
I know it looks like he is a pussy (and he probably is), but it's the smarter decision regarding he will have to live for some more years after his CS pro career ;)
How does this happen, how is this not in the news somewhere?
Rofl. I have never heard something like this before.
NRG's performance will be seriously impacted, although their prospects were not very high in the first place.
also cant play because of it :D
