The player in question is Felipe “Less” de Loyola, according to the Brazilian organization. He is up to date on his vaccinations and is currently isolated and asymptomatic.
Less produced a positive result during mandatory testing for players and staff at Masters Reykjavik 2022. According to Riot’s policy, any player who tests positive can still compete on a LAN network built in the quarantine facilities, should they feel well enough to play.

As Brazil’s top seed, LOUD received a direct playoffs spot. Bypassing the group stage, they are set to play their first match against Team Liquid on April 15.
Unfortunately, both Less and aspas will not be able to play on stage. Per Riot’s policy, they will play from an isolated room, while their teammates and opponents compete from nearby rooms.
LOUD will be one of the most closely-watched teams in the tournament. The Brazilian superteam went undefeated throughout VCT Brazil Stage 1 Challengers and are widely regarded as one of the most dangerous dark horses in Iceland.
