ELEAGUE have confirmed on Twitter that Flash will replace TyLoo in the first stage of the Major.
Over the course of the last few days, reports of TYLOO's withdrawal from the Main Qualifier, or the "New Challengers Stage", came to light, revealing that Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu and the Chinese organization could not come to terms.
The Brazilian coach was TYLOO's only option as a replacement for Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand - who was unable to obtain his visa for the United States - as he had been part of the roster as the team's coach at the Asia Minor in October last year.
Due to ELEAGUE's rules that created the aforementioned issue, Flash will attend the Major with the roster they used at the Minor despite having made changes, benching QiFang "Karsa" Su and KunHua "LOVEYY" Bai in favor of WeiJia "INNOPY" Guo and Zhe "Ayeon" Yang.
Flash's roster at the first stage of the Major, set to take place in ELEAGUE's studios in Atlanta from January 12-15, will thus be the following:
