Notable CS:GO Talent to Reportedly Miss StarLadder Berlin Major

Popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive talent will miss the upcoming StarLadder Berlin Major, according to a report Wednesday from Jarek "DeKay" Lewis.

Anders Blume, Duncan "Thorin" Shields and Jason "Moses" O'Toole are set to miss the event, according to the report. Each name mentioned raises questions as to why they won't reportedly be in attendance.

Thorin has been a notable name absent from Majors since the first ELEAGUE Major, but he's been present at most StarLadder events. Anders and Moses are one of the top-tier casting duos as well, leaving just James Bardolph, Daniel "ddk" Kapadia, Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett and Henry "HenryG" Greer left from that group.

StarLadder would be Anders' second missed CS:GO Major in a row and the first Major since ESL One Cologne 2015 Moses does not attend.
