Rak steps down in ALTERNATE
Team ALTERNATE have announced that Christian "Rak" Hermenau-Puhlvers has stepped down from the active lineup.
The news comes in the aftermath of the team's 3rd-4th place finish at the EPS finals last weekend as they suffered a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Wild Fire, who would go on to win the event, in the semi-final stage.
It was the latest of a series of disappointing results for ALTERNATE, who had been sent packing at Copenhagen Games in the Round of 16 courtesy of a 0-2 defeat against Titan.
