He was not invited for Cologne (he said on twitter). And over him they invited Pansy smh

Denmark FeNoM_XD 
well then maybe ESL didnt want to spend more money on a caster
2018-07-05 18:18
they didn't "invite" pansy, she's an esl employee. they're already paying her, why would they pay a 2nd person? you could name any other caster that got invited over anders, but never pansy when it comes to esl. she's part of the furniture ;)
2018-07-05 18:46
Anders is at ELEAGUE instead btw

Thats great but if he would not get an invite for the faceit major ill be hella mad
2018-07-05 18:20
My guess is he will, because he has been at every major.
