One of the most popular figures of the 2016 World Championship so far, Albus NoX Luna’s support Kirill “Likkrit” Malofeyev confirmed on Twitter that he has chickenpox, but he expects that he will be able to play against H2K-Gaming next Sunday in Chicago for a spot in the semi-finals.
to all who asked – yes, i have chickenpox. its 3rd time for me, so its expected to be easier than 2nd. most likely i will play in quarters.

Likkrit, known for his unusual picks like Brand, is a vital member of the Albus NoX’s line-up, who became the first team coming from a Wildcard region to qualify for a World Championship’s playoffs after ending the group stage with a 4-2 record last Thursday, missing barely even the first seed out of group A, following a loss against Korea’s ROX Tigers in the tie-breaker, after managing to beat the tournament favorites a few hours earlier.
