Tides dropped from HPL, Rdu steps in to replace him
As the inaugural season of the Hearthstone Pro League continues apace, one player has been booted from the league after missing all his fixtures.
Andrew "TidesofTime" Biessener, one of two Cloud9 representatives in the HPL, has been dropped from the league after failing to play three scheduled matches. Cloud9 were offered the chance to send a replacement from their team, but according to captain Marcin "Gnimsh" Filipowicz, they did not have a player available to take the spot.
Radu will inherit Biessener's 0-3 record. Radu defeated James "Greensheep" Luo 3-2 last night in his first match up.
For Biessener, this is the latest in a sporadic competitive career since jumping from Tempo Storm to Cloud9 last October. After winning the World Esports Championships last September he has appeared in just a handful of tournaments.
According to Filipowicz, Biessener has encountered "complications" while moving across the U.S. and that this was something the team planned to address for the future.
