It’s been two straight days of celebration in the Evil Geniuses CS:GO camp after what’s been a dismal start to the 2023 campaign. Just a few hours removed from their academy roster pulling off a stunning upset, the main roster has been gifted one final chance to redeem themselves and reach the last-ever CS:GO Major.
On the morning of April 1, BLAST officially announced that the Detonate roster had to give up its spot at the BLAST Americas RMR due to passport issues preventing the team from submitting a valid roster. Per a Dust2 report from the day prior, two players from Detonate were unable to attend due to passport issues and a medical emergency. Detonate would have to use a second substitute to field a full roster, which isn’t allowed under the Valve rulebook.
