Why is it wrong to make majors in the USA?

After Trump's going to the USA is getting harder and harder, VALVe needs to start thinking that it's not a good idea to do the majors in the USA. It is better that they do the major in countries that do not have as much problem with visa and that the Public of the CSGO is quite ample. Examples: Denmark, France, Brazil, Germany, Sweden, among others. I would not want to see American patriots cursing this post.

What happened to 100 thieves is their own fault.
2018-01-13 15:34
Why? Explain me

Because the Org/players should be more responsible with visa.the TO has got nothing to do with visas for players. Orgs have the responsibility for players issues/ health/ visa. Just like fucking AVANGAR and Bellar fire, have to sort out their work visas.

Bro,forget what happened at the major in Krakow, they took the visa to the USA two weeks before, they dedicated themselves much more than in Krakow, they did 2 months of bootcamp in Poland, they missed Christmas and New Year, because You were in Poland training, do you think it's their mistake?

Do you not read? Work visas are sorted out by the orgs not the TO at all. With 100 Thieves case was they couldn't get a work visas, EL can't do anything about it. Doesn't matter if EL is less or more dedicated in helping orgs with visas, It's simply not their problem. Put it like this, Krakow could have the best PC's (they didn't) for the pros but it doesn't matter if a pro player forgets to bring his gear to play on. Got nothing to do with the TO in this matter

Bro, I said thanks to Trump, visa problems are getting bigger, I made a trip to the USA, I stayed 1 month to take a 3-day tourist visa. And yes, the visa has become more difficult to complete because Trump wants to reduce the number of immigrants.

Have you been living under a rock on Mars for the last year or so? Have checked internet or TV since he became president? The guy is literally closing the US borders for pretty much anyone that's not from EU or rich...
2018-01-13 17:24
Everything is Trump's fault obviously... Favelas in Brazil were also made because of Trump duhhh.

gotta blame someone I guess
2018-01-13 19:05
Bro, you dont know nothing about Brazil, you dont know what is a Favela, you only say it because everibody say, so just shut up.
2018-01-13 19:10
The reason they didnt get the visa was their own fault for breaking the law previously.
2018-01-13 16:28
Don't remember exactly, but wasn't someone on the team living/working in the US on a tourist visa or something like that?
2018-01-13 17:27
No idea.

but it's not just about 100thieves. Also BnTeT couldn't get VISA (prob. because he is from muslim country Indonesia?) Every major in USA had such issues. Europe: MUCH less, also better crowds.
2018-01-13 17:24
beacuse alot off indonesia people are muslim like me =D
2018-01-13 17:33
Its an issue because eports still hasnt become mainstream so the players cannot get athlete visas. (nice name btw, fakeflagger)
2018-01-13 17:58
Oh I didnt know, thats fucked up.
2018-01-13 18:40
Funny how the reputable orgs never have issues

Showmatch is one thing, major for 2 weeks is completely another
2018-01-13 18:01
yea ofc, weather is too big of a factor for anything but a showmatch. But it can be done :D

Yeah, it can be done, but I don't think anyone wants to put such an effort into it.

So you want ban majors of an american game made by US company from being held in USA. iAintThinkzThat
2018-01-13 16:06
That's why! VALVe needs to open up more horizons. The organization that chooses the majors site, not the VALVe.

It's always up to developers where major should be held, stop dreaming and get over the fact 100t deserved this with their wild tweets. And apparently none cares about 100t outside of Brazil.
2018-01-13 16:15
Yes, the preconceptionis very big. Like Brazilian teams winnig US championships. Like the French Canadians had cheat against Immortals
2018-01-13 16:17
But Valve chooses the Org, and they knew that Eleague is gonna have it in the US. So, yea, valve can kinda decide. I also think they should be more open towards other orgs and countries. DH deserves a Major imo. Top notch production.

Getting Visa is a discretionary thing, not only paper work. You may get it or you may not get it, when they dont want you in their country the time for the paper work is irrelevant.
2018-01-13 17:22
majors in Indonesia XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

There should be some kind of temporary visa for athletes (e-athletes?) coming for competitions. I bet they would never deny visa to football players in a world cup, for instance
2018-01-13 17:38
tbh Im all for a major in Brazil since its in the same time zone and there wouldnt be as many visa issues
