havoK steps down from Risky
The only Indian player, havoK, of the United Arab Emirates team known as Risky, has withdrawn from the active line-up since its foundation.
The squad made a roster change in July with Abdullah "t0ks" Al-Ghafari replacing Abdulaziz "Nami" Al-Hammadi, who had to serve a 12-month conscription in the UAE military. The team had disappointing results after this move, which included a 9th-12th finish at the eXTREMESLAND Asia Finals, that was accompanied by another failure with Risky not securing a spot at the third Asian Minor due to a 5th-8th position in the qualifier.

In addition, they recently qualified for the DreamHack Masters Las Vegas Closed Asian Qualifier, taking place from December 3-4.
