Peacemaker and TyLoo explain Eleague Major: Boston exit

Stickers may have had something to do with it.

We reported not too long ago that TyLoo would not be at the upcoming Eleague Major: Boston CS:GO tournament, with Flash Gaming stepping in to replace them, and now HLTV's Alex Deng has shared a statement from TyLoo that explains their absence from the competition.

The organisation said that Luis 'Peacemaker' Tadeu was the only person allowed to play in accordance with the rules, and he was interested in doing so as long as he received a part of the sticker profits of the team. If he wasn't given these, they said he'd be reluctant to go to the Major.

Peacemaker himself has also released a statement in the form of a TwitLonger post that, as reported by Dot Esports, says he preferred TyLoo had another substitute due to the fact he'd lose practice time with his team Heroic as well as time with his family.

TyLoo then apparently asked Eleague if they could use a stand-in from outside those who competed in the Asia Minor, and after that request was denied then they were forced to withdraw.

What's more is that Peacemaker also tweeted that Valve had received and accepted his player autograph sticker submission well in advance, and that people were "aware of the fact bntet had visa issues and about the possibility of me playing even before the Asian minor."

Would you have rather seen TyLoo play with Peacemaker than see them exit entirely?
