VG.Flash's coach Zhenghui "z8z" Liu will act as a temporary replacement for YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng, who has injured himself recently.

After VG.Flash defeated BTR and 5POWER in the DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 China closed qualifier, they were set to face their domestic rival TyLoo in the upper bracket final.

Around the starting time, VG.Flash revealed on Weibo that AttackeR "was being treated at the hospital due to his physical condition" and z8z would temporarily stand in for him. Afterwards, the Chinese squad was eliminated from the event following 2-0 losses to TyLoo and CyberZen.

AttackeR's injury is a huge blow to the Chinese side

According to sources close to the Chinese player, AttackeR injured his foot while playing basketball, and "is unable to move". As a consequence, he will not be able to attend the Asia Minor next week in London.

VG.Flash's roster for the upcoming event is:

China YuLun "Summer" Cai
China WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong
China KunHua "LOVEYY" Bai
Hong Kong WingHei "Freeman" Cheung
China Zhenghui "z8z" Liu (stand-in)

Because Minor is in London.
2018-07-13 17:41
we should have like a prefix [Minor; "UK flag"] and then Chinese flag and team related news etc etc just to sort the news into different categories

Yea, news like these confused me a couple of times.

It has been like this forever, I don't see a problem tbh
2018-07-13 22:52
its not a problem and im used to it but sometimes (like this one) the UK flag doesnt match SOOO BADLY
2018-07-14 00:36
such a good idea. i swear hltv have no idea what they' re doing sometimes
2018-07-14 00:02
another idea is to have a half flag of tournaments country and another half of the team the news related to (like US/Canada flag)
2018-07-14 00:37
another great idea, or just the team logo next to the flag of where the info is happening, (like vg.flash+UK)

Unlikely. As Signature pulled out, VG can advance to next stage if they can beat SZ. TBH it wont be hard even play with coach.

AttackeR injured his foot while playing basketball, and "is unable to move". I thought he doesn't do sports at all due to his body shape. Sorry Attacker.
