nukkye to stand in for HellRaisers at DHM Stockholm
Earlier today, it was confirmed that woxic wasn't going to be able to attend the $250,000 event which starts tomorrow, due to visa issues. While HellRaisers are still hoping that a last-minute solution can be found for woxic, they have decided on a stand-in.
HLTV.org has learned that standing in for woxic will be the 20-year-old Lithuanian nukkye, currently a part of Imperial. nukkye is also an AWPer, which makes him a more natural substitute for woxic than someone like Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar, who stood in for the Turkish player at IEM Shanghai.
As of now, HellRaisers will be playing DreamHack Masters Stockholm with the following lineup:
Ivan "Johnta" Shevtsov (coach)
"We’re doing our best to resolve this visa issue with Özgür. If the embassy provides him with an entry visa, then woxic will compete in the championship, even though he might miss a few matches." - HellRaisers statement
