device to miss ESL Pro League finals

Team SoloMid member Nicolai "device" Reedtz has revealed that he will miss the ESL Pro League Finals due to a viral infection.

After complaining on Wednesday of "a fever, throat pain and coughing up blood", Nicolai "device" Reedtz took to Twitter this morning to reveal that he would have to miss the upcoming tournament, which will take place at ESL's TV studio, in Cologne.

Replacing him in Germany will be former Copenhagen Wolves member Casper "cadiaN" Møller, who is currently without a team after Planetkey Dynamics parted ways with their players.


device to miss event in Cologne due to a virus 

Team SoloMid have been drawn alongside Virtus.pro - to whom they lost the Copenhagen Games grand final last weekend - Natus Vincere and dignitas in the group stage of the tournament, where $48,000 will be on offer.

The Danish team will attend the event with:

Denmark René "cajunb" Borg
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth
Denmark Casper "cadiaN" Møller (stand-in)

2015-04-09 16:09
Africa is completely closed of for the rest of the world and bacteria just stays there, is that your logic good sir?
2015-04-09 16:13
Its not
2015-04-09 16:21
ok you're logic is also flawed. device has never been to africa as far as we know and ebola outside of africa is not an epidemic, and it's only really widespread in certain areas of africa.

They were never going to win anyways...but...ok :)

ye most probably not, EnVy is just too strong but with cadian instead of device their chances of winning decreased from like 5% to 0,0001%
2015-04-09 15:09
God, people have no fking respect, saying he chokes online and Irl, saying he's an onliner, grow up ffs. Would you feel good if that happened to you? Coughing blood and getting insulted?

I swear I've never seen any team have worse luck at majors than TSM (mainly when they were dignitas) Just when they start showing how great they are lately after copenhagen, they take a blow like this right before Cologne. I would have been ok with karrigan getting replaced but... device is a gawd and TSM won't be able to go far without him.
