Despite exiting Spain winless, Heretics once again qualified for another Masters event by working their way through the Stage 1 playoffs of the EMEA League. Unfortunately, the grueling environment of the professional scene took its toll on a young Dominykas "MiniBoo" Lukaševičius, who had been balancing full time competing with his education.

Team Heretics announced that the young superstar duelist would be taking a break from competing while he focused on his education, leaving a vacant roster spot now filled by paTiTek as the team travels to China in hopes of leaving with a trophy.

It is unknown how long paTiTek will remain with Heretics, as there is no set date on when MiniBoo will return to competing. Role changes may be in order, and the team must work quickly before their match against Dragon Ranger Gaming Dragon Ranger Gaming China Rank #6 nizhaoTZH Tang Zehao (唐哲昊) vo0kashu Ilya Ushakov Shion7 Zhang Haozhe (张昊泽) Nicc Shao Yi-qun (邵逸群) TvirusLuke Chen Cheng-ching on May 23.
