Easy victory for Gaimin Gladiators against Boxi-less Team Liquid

  Team Liquid's dominant run at the Lima Major 2023 came to an abrupt halt with Boxi's unexpected departure mid-way into the tournament Citing a medical emergency, Boxi flew home, with Team Liquid's analyst, Jabbz filling in for the former. This sudden change put Team Liquid in a tight spot but they had to continue, for it's the first Major of DPC 2023. William "Blitz" Lee said, "We thank Valve for the understanding and jabbz for stepping in. It isn’t an easy situation for him to standin last minute so I hope people send him positivity as well. We will still try our absolute best to win this tournament for Boxi. Ty no further comments." He also gave a shout-out to Alex Cuccovillo, Gaimin Gladiators co-founder for helping them. Blitz added, "Also before I forget thank you to @GGFatalUno for his help, even though Gladiators are our direct opponent he spent the entire night trying to help us. That to me is the sort of person I aspire to be."
