According to reports, Azure Ray have issued a clear ultimatum stating that they would withdraw from the series if BetBoom Team insisted on including Pure in their roster. This decision stems from Pure's alleged rule violation, which has resulted in his eligibility for future games being suspended in accordance with the enforced regulations.
Earlier, BetBoom Team were handed a default loss in their series against Tundra. This decision was made after video evidence surfaced, revealing that Pure had violated the rules by watching an official stream of the game. As a result, BetBoom Team will be relegated to the Lower Bracket instead of progressing to the Upper Bracket Semifinals against Gaimin Gladiators. The DreamLeague Season 20 runner-ups are now scheduled to play Azure Ray in the Lower Brackets.
As of writing, BetBoom Team are yet to announce a replacement for Pure.
