Tyloo and Luis “Peacemaker” Tadeu released official statements relating TyLoo’s absence from the Major, and the stories from both of them is pretty interesting.
As announced, TyLoo will not be attending the Boston Major because Valve put Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand’s player autograph sticker into the game instead of Peacemaker’s. A failed agreement between TyLoo and Peacemaker resulted in TyLoo to skip this Major. As Valve and ELEAGUE also played minor roles in the sticker controversy.
Not official, but I heard Valve is saying that coaches shouldnt have signatures in the game even if they have to stand in for their respective team
1) Why does Valve even collect a 6th man signature at first place then?
2) What if coach becomes a player then?

According to TyLoo Peacemaker was “reluctant to attend” the Major unless he was given a portion of the organization’s sticker profits. As he asked for a percentage of TyLoo’s profits, mainly because BnTeT’s sticker was in the game instead of his confirmed by Jared “DeKay” Lewis from a report.
BnTeT could not attend the Boston Major because he was denied a visa for travel to the U.S. Peacemaker also claims that “Valve accepted his player autograph sticker submission prior to the initial sticker release.
As peacemaker came to know that he won’t be having his personal sticker, he ostensibly asked for an adjustment from TyLoo regarding his stipend as a player, instead of as a coach. But for the sake of TyLoo’s player’s peacemaker decided to drop his compensation. But TyLoo allegedly decided that it’d rather miss the Major than playing with the Brazilian coach at the event – statement came out indirectly from TyLoo, according to Peacemaker.
TyLoo finally decided to step out from the major, resulting Flash Gaming to replace them in the Challenger stage. Flash Gaming’s stickers were added to CS:GO last night by Valve, while TyLoo’s stickers have become coveted items on the Steam community market.
