Astralis played their recent tournaments with Dennis as a stand-in. Ofocurse that turned out really good for the team since they ended up reaching the finals of the Blast Pro Series. While they eventually lost to SK Gaming in the finals, they did put up a really strong performance.
Despite beeing placed at the same group as Astralis at ESL finals I think WESA/ESL can make an exception and let astralis have a dennis as a stand-in.
Illness is not something u can control, and Im sure everyone want to see world class CS after half-year-long league.

Ange1 wants ESL to allow Dennis as a stand-in for the team. Device, the original member of the team has taken ill and needs to be given medical care. This of course has put the entire balance of Astralis team composition into a tizzy.
