Valve added a sticker for sk0r, who will not compete at Major

Tengis "sk0R" Batyargala sticker was unveiled among the autographs, which Valve added to CS:GO before the start of Paris Major 2023. Mongolian esports athlete got his sticker in the game, but will not compete at the upcoming Major.

sk0R, together with IHC teammates, only participated in the qualifiers for the Asia RMR. Several weeks before the start of the regional qualifier, he departed the team and was replaced by Chinguun "hasteka" Bayarmaa, with whom the Mongols secured a Major spot already under TheMongolz tag.

hasteka didn't get a sticker even though he will compete at the Major. A similar situation happened last year, when BIG participated in IEM Rio Major 2022 together with Elias "s1n" Stein as a stand-in, but instead, Valve presented a sticker for Josef "faveN" Baumann, who missed the event due to illness. Paris Major 2023 will play out from May 8 to 21 in Paris, France. At the tournament, 24 rosters will compete for $1.25 million in prize money, as well as for the tickets to IEM Cologne 2023 and BLAST Premier World Final 2023.
