kenzor in doubt for CIS Minor*

pro100 could be one man short for the CIS Minor as Leonard "kenzor" Volodarchuk is likely to miss the tournament due to health issues.

The revelation was made earlier on Thursday on Twitter by teammate Ivan "AiyvaN" Semenets, with CIS pundit and caster Oleksandr "petr1k" Petryk confirming the situation and adding that the team are "urgently looking for a stand-in" for the event.

pro100 are yet to issue a formal statement regarding the situation. The Ukrainian team qualified for the Minor after finishing 5th-8th in the closed qualifier, beating RAVE, MOLLIHblE and forZe.

kenzor is likely to miss the upcoming CIS Minor

HLTV.org knows that pro100 have already contacted ESL enquiring about the possibility of fielding a stand-in at the Major. If the request is denied, they will have to play with coach Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko, who was promoted to head coach last month.

The CIS Minor will take place from January 16-20 in Katowice, Poland. Eight teams from the region will contend for two spots in the New Challengers stage of the upcoming Major, IEM Katowice 2019, as well as a spot at the Minors' play-in.

UPDATE: ESL have denied pro100's request for a roster change in time for the CIS Minor. The team will now have to either hope for kenzor's fast recovery, or, more likely, employ coach ceh9 as a fifth.

Ofcourse, 31 december was last time to say 6 people on team (1 coach) so ceh9 will play for sure( like hardstyle,zews did) atleast they have stand in because they did say players before the roster lock right now its not possible to play with a stand in

well, 2.12.5 Emergency Transfers In case of a serious and short notice emergency (e.g. unforeseeable cancellation of all flights or a severe illness or injury of a player) that leaves a team without a full lineup to play with, the tournament direction can decide to allow an emergency transfer in disregard of most of the rules in 2.12 . BUT This rule can only come into play if the team roster had a substitute (coach) but the emergency is not solved by using just that one substitute.

Well they probably will (and should) since its only Markeloff on the roster. Markeloff -> CIS team (& stand-in for Pro 100 for minor imo). F3 +NA/EU roster.

Markeloff is a one man team. EZ 1v5 for him.

2019-01-10 13:53
so what? ur fan of flarich, same story with him
2019-01-10 14:16
flarich has been tested many times in teams with higher tier (included NaVi 2 times). but just no luck with it. At least kenzor didnt test in NaVi. (Flarich and Aiyvan were)
2019-01-10 14:20
You definitely don't know the definition of word "upcoming". Mostly this term coming to players who still haven't prove themselves on pro scene, they're just just giving rays of hopes, but nothing more at this period. And if the player was tested somewhere, it doesn't mean he already proved himself. So considering all the facts i mentioned above, flarich is still upcoming star and nothing wrong with this, he waits his turn.
