Astralis will participate in the IEM Dallas without a coach. Martin "trace" Heldt did not have time to apply for a visa to the United States, which is why he will work with the team remotely. The problem with the trip is that trace visited Iran ten years ago, which is why he needs to apply for a full-fledged visa, which takes months.

Astralis did not say whether anyone would stand behind the players during the matches. The team can still use the manager for these purposes.
