mistou to step in for Limitless at WESG

One of the French representatives at the WESG 2017 World Finals, Limitless, will be using Valentin "mistou" Balbastro as a stand-in due to their player being hospitalized shortly before the event in China.

Limitless was one of the surprised of the WESG EU&CIS Regional Finals, as they defeated fnatic, Fragsters and RESISTANCE to finish second in group D, qualifying for the playoffs and the World Finals. The French team will be forced to use a stand-in at the $1.5m finals, though, as Léonard "Smyli" Michelino has been hospitalized just a couple of days before they travel to Haikou, Hainan, China.

mistou will return from inactivity to play for Limitless at WESG

To fill in the gap, Limitless have reached out to Valentin "mistou" Balbastro, who plied his trade under Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans in LDLC and represented France at TWC 2016.

Limitless are currently ranked #77 in the world and will have the following squad at the event:

France Léo "Kan4" Intronati
France Théo "LoWkii" Téchené​
France Paul "Polox" Barbe
France Bryan "Maka" Canda
France Valentin "mistou" Balbastro (stand-in)

But Isg will win against Limitless, and they won against fnatic and fnatic won against faze Isg>limitless>fnatic>faze Isg next major champs #ArgTOP1 #nikomGODtop1
2018-03-07 18:30
why do you bring FaZe in? They are totally irrelevant when it comes to win something in 2018
2018-03-07 18:36
Because they lost the final against fnatic and fnatic lost against limitless
2018-03-07 18:36
So limitless>fnatic is enough don't you think? fnatic>faze or fnatic>goldnovaMM doesn't matter.

Why the chinese flag? The article is about a French player standing in for a French team. I know the tournament is in China, but it still doesn't make a lot of sense.
