Team Liquid may be playing TF Blade for their early LCS games.
According to his stream, Ashkan “TF Blade” Homayouni mentioned that “there’s a good chance” that he will be playing on stage as a stand-in due to visa issues for Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen. Being the sub for Team Liquid since January of 2019, he said that it’s one of the reasons he’s going to LA.
Recently, Steve Arhancet, co-owner of Team Liquid, tweeted that there were some delays with the visas for Jang “Cain” Nu-ri, Broxah, and Shern “Shernfire” Tai. He also mentioned that they were evaluating backup options if they were to be required. According to TF Blade’s stream, it seems subbing in their subtitute/streamer, may be one of the options Team Liquid is considering.
