Threat Replaces Pyth at MLG Major

This is going to be the final five for NIP at the MLG Columbus Major :


Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund
Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg
Richard “Xizt” Landström
Adam “friberg” Friberg
Björn “THREAT” Pers (stand-in)


The Swedish team and MLG have been in talks over the last week with a view to finding a solution to the problem. NIP have proposed that Threat plays for the team until Pyth is able to travel. However Valve and MLG are unwilling to accept this suggestion, claiming that a roster cannot be changed halfway through the Major.


This means that, even if Pyth manages to get a visa permit and arrives in Columbus before Wednesday’s matches, he will most likely only act as a coach for the team at the event.
