rain to miss IEM Katowice 2022 playoffs

Håvard "rain" Nygaard of FaZe will not help the European team in the playoffs of IEM Katowice 2022, the esports athlete wrote on Twitter.

The Norwegian did not indicate the exact reason for his absence, but most likely it was due to the positive coronavirus test. Nygaard has been isolated from his teammates since February 19, when he was first diagnosed with COVID-19.

According to the previously published IEM Katowice 2022 security protocol, players who test positive for coronavirus are not allowed to play at the Spodek Arena. Thus, rain will be replaced by Justin "jks" Savage, who stood in for the team at the Play-In stage and in one match of the group stage.

Gambit will be the next opponents of FaZe in the quarterfinals of the ongoing LAN event. The match will take place today, February 25, at 21:00 MSK. The winner of the meeting will secure a slot in the semifinals, where they will take on Heroic.
