Astralis may leave the list of participants of ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals due to the unsatisfactory state of health of Nicolai «dev1ce» Reedtz.
HLTV.org states that Nicolai is still hospitalized and due to that, he will not be able to take part in the final stage of EPL Season 6. Astralis wants to hire Dennis «dennis» Edman as a stand-in as it was at BLAST Pro Series.
Despite this, Astralis may receive the prohibition against participating in the tournament with a stand-in player. At the moment, representatives of the organization negotiate with World Esports Association. If both sides do not make a mutual decision, Astralis will have to miss the sixth season of ESL Pro League.
The final stage of EPL will be hosted in Odense, Denmark on December 5-10. A prize pool of the tournament will amount $750,000. The main monetary prize will be in the sum of $225,000.
