Dutch club Liquid confirmed via its social media accounts that Robert “Patsi” Isyanov will miss the team’s opener at ESL Pro League Season 18 against Coach Damian "daps" Steele will replace him in the starting five.

However, the Mareks “YEKINDAR” Gaļinskis-led roster clarified that Patsi will be available for the second match of the tour, which will play out on Thursday, September 21. The organization expects that by this time the Russian will have time to receive his visa and fly to Malta.
