AGO pull out of DreamHack Open Rio

Two days before the DreamHack Open Rio is set to start, AGO announced that they would not be attending the event due to the illness of one of their players.

The Polish side was one of the squads invited to the event, and they were placed in group B alongside Valiance, Sharks, and W7M. According to cybersport.pl, the reason they decided to pull out is Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski's ear infection, which prevents him from hearing on one ear.

furlan and co. will miss out on the $100,000 tournament

Now, DreamHack Open Rio is down to seven participants, with a replacement for AGO currently unknown. Earlier this month, Luminosity pulled out of the tournament to play ESL Pro League Group C, with INTZ coming in as a replacement.

The two groups for DreamHack Open Rio currently look as follows:

earinfections can in very severe cases lead to meningitis. The risk of further complications from an ear infection is greatly amplified by diving or flying due to the air-pressure.

It's not that s1mple to take a standin 2 days before the event and fly to other continent. Re-arranging this would be crazy thing and probably wouldn't help team to play well on the event. Unlocko, everyone knows that AGO is one of most active and hard working teams in top50 HLTV. They would go if this was possible.

Dreamhack should be the ones sued. They advertised the event with a PUBG and Rainbow 6 tourney and YESTERDAY I received an email saying they were cancelled. Less than 5 days from the event and they do something like this. They are refunding people but what about people from far that had bought plane/bus tickets to watch those events? Unprofessional as fuck.
