In a sign of immense professionalism, G2's David "Davidp" Prins has officially confirmed he will not be dropping out of the Allied Esports Odyssey Valorant tournament, following the distressing news of his father's passing while in the middle of a match.
Decided to play today's match and to continue playing the @AlliedEsports x Ignition Series.— David Prins ❤️🕊️ (@G2Davidp_) August 13, 2020
It is not easy, not at all. I wanna do it for my father, i wanna do it to make him being proud of me, i want him to see that i'm gonna fight.
I'm Professional and i'm gonna do my job. https://t.co/kpZ4E0mnQ7
Many fans thought the 25-year-old would not be participating in the rest of the Ignition Series certified event, leaving G2 in a precarious position as they would have had to find a replacement with less than a day's notice for their upcoming match.

Now, the team that's led by the still undefeated in best-of-3 grand finals Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks will set sights on continuing the streak as they will face Ninjas in Pyjamas on the 13th, Giants Gaming on the 14th, and Team Liquid on the 15th, looking for a spot in the semifinals of the tournament.
