2014-08-19 22:13
lol, almost no one here read the article
2014-08-19 22:13
hope so VP will play on this lan ;)
2014-08-19 22:14
lol the reading is stronk with you godspeed
2014-08-19 22:16
good decision but still sad for mouz :(
2014-08-19 22:14
Even though i have attacked OnlineSports dodging skills many times but they honestly can't be blamed for skipping it this time. fnatic will skip as well, just wait for it.
2014-08-19 22:15
i hope they do, i dont wanna see olof dead +_+
2014-08-19 22:25
To be honest, i don't know how teams outside ukraine agree to play there.. its so risky and the UN already flagged it as a danger zone.
2014-08-19 23:14
Didn't fnatic skip last time? Or who was that?
2014-08-20 02:39
Yeah they did.
2014-08-20 03:19
2014-08-21 02:18
Just don't take plane to Ukraine and everything will be okay.
2014-08-19 22:15 also confirmed that neither or Titan, next two teams in line for a spot, will be attending the finals next week Than the next on the list is LDLC, hope they will attend.
2014-08-19 22:15
I hope so :D
2014-08-19 22:16
Thats why they are called "mouseONLINERS" lel, simple as that.
2014-08-19 22:16
did you read the article or was it too much for your brain to take it in? lel
2014-08-19 23:26
i did, and thats bullshit lol
2014-08-19 23:29
nope, it's your brain 100%.
2014-08-19 23:57
so, fnatic is going and mouse don't ... dude, i've never seen mouse playing good at lan, thats it, only allu. but allu can't win 1vs5
2014-08-20 00:01
Well fnatic isn't concered mouz, VP, Titan are what's so hard to understand ? like u dont know what's going on in Ukraine.
2014-08-20 00:23
fnatic skipped last SLTV lan finals as well, for the exact same reason as mouz is skipping now. Just wait for them to skip this again.
2014-08-20 09:20
2014-08-19 22:17
The reason why VP is not attending is simple. They were in UK at G3, then bootcamp for ESL. As Taz said in interview, they don’t want to attend any lan for at least month, they prefer spend time with family and practice by playing online.
2014-08-19 22:18
2014-08-19 23:38
I wouldn't go to ukraine in a plane right now, that's for sure :P

Political situation in Ukraine...zzzzzz Chicago is a warzone and I work there daily :D
2014-08-19 22:24
I visited there two months during 4th of July weekend and when I came home I read there were 21 separate shooting incidents, with 82 shot, 14 of which fatally. -_-
2014-08-19 22:36
Chicago is not a warzone. Don't talk about Chicago unless you actually live there, not just work in a bad neighborhood.
2014-08-19 22:45
The difference is, that in Ukraine there is happening a real war between Ukraine army and Seperatists ( they want to be part of Russia ). There is people dying a lot everyday. In Kiev, the situation is quite normal, but it's safer not to go, because you never know what Putin Is up to.
2014-08-19 22:46
First of all, they wanted, but Putin rejected. Nowadays, there're 2 countries. Putin doesn't do anything against Ukraine, but they provoke Russia everyday by bombing the border zone as well as Russian territory. If you have a source which says that Putin did anything against Ukraine, please, share with us.
2014-08-20 01:41
no problem. putin seized the Crimea
2014-08-20 20:08
It was a referendum! and that territory was gifted to Ukraine.
2014-08-21 15:09
Idiot 1. It was not a gift, it was exchange Crimia - Kuban. Same territories 2. Russians(moskali) didnt have voter lists people from crimia, what *referendum* without documents and with AK 47?
2014-08-21 22:13
I won't argue with you as I know the majority of Ukrainians are nationalists. You may be furious as Crimea now a part of Russia, but at least people who live there are happy and calm. You don't live there so you weren't forced to become a person who lives under Russia, but it's a fact, I repeat, people on Crimea are happy and this is the most important thing.
2014-08-21 22:52
It's funny that the SLTV league placing hardly makes any difference, because no one wants to be blown up xD
2014-08-19 22:27
if ldlc or epsilon doesnt attend too, they could play the finals with only 3 teams
2014-08-19 22:32 confirm. check our site
2014-08-19 22:35
mousesports onliners confirmed, they dont want to play cs:go irl
2014-08-19 22:39
So fnatic skipped the last one but decided to to this time? wtf?
2014-08-19 22:40
they skipped, because schneider didn't want to go
2014-08-19 22:42
Everybody will refuse, so Nostalgie, who are the friends of Slam, will attend the event.
2014-08-19 22:43

2014-08-19 22:45
Rofl, germans will be germans xD
2014-08-19 22:47
only 30-31? I remember SLTV allways as 4 days event...
2014-08-19 22:49
Guess ESL should have taken 16 days then :/
2014-08-19 23:25
I dont say they should... now I think its better but I remember SLTV format as 4 days event I just ask why they change it.... its all
2014-08-19 23:30
why would 4 team take 4 days lmao. one game a day?
2014-08-19 23:28
check upper comment... and there was lower bracket and it was 2 games per day

What about fnatic? I wont be surprised if all 14 teams will refuse))) And if our government will *stop chewing snot* and at last will close Ukraine for all russians, it will be interesting lan finals NaVi mix without seized HR mix without Dosia dAT mix without russians A-Gaming
2014-08-19 23:03
So stupid logic, n1
2014-08-20 12:47
You have russians already in Ukraine, whats point of close? :D
2014-08-20 17:33
I thought things were relatively "normal" in Kiev compared to Crimea? And don't a couple of the HellRaisers guys live in or near Crimea? Sounds like mouz scared of another LAN failure
2014-08-19 23:03
Switzerland Sylleo 
Crimea is not a war zone, you're thinking about east ukraine (Donbass).
2014-08-19 23:06
about crimea russians just beat everyone with other opinion or even put to russian prizon people couldnt get any job or healthcare there, couldnt get pensions money without russian pasport they couldnt have cars, flats, houses without russian pasport people who has born in crimea could spend there only 3 monthes a year without russian pasport but you are rigth, russian terrorist made war zore only in dondass region

2014-08-20 11:18
so fnatic will drop out too..
2014-08-19 23:04
They know there is no point flying there since they would get raped on lan anyways lol
2014-08-19 23:05
OnlineBots should go
2014-08-19 23:10
Polish websites say that they talked to the players and even they do not know yet whether will go
2014-08-19 23:16
2014-08-19 23:18
Why do you even play qualifications if you not planning on going.
2014-08-19 23:20
They're just scared. I of Kiev and everything is in order.

2014-08-20 00:03
2014-08-20 01:39
I think he's going on the fact that they skipped last time, but I suppose this is a different lineup so maybe they won't.
2014-08-20 02:42 according to this virtus pro is taking place of mouz. Who's not telling the truth?
2014-08-20 01:00
"due to some of the players being concerned over the political situation in Ukraine." lmao what a load of shit, just say that you cant afford it because big boss knows you are going home after first 3 games again and isn't willing to spend any more money on you at this time. No need for this political bullshit, onlineJ probably doesn't even know whats happening in Ukraine, busy crying on fb/instagram/twitter about irrelevant shit like always.

Pretty sure parts of Ukraine have been flagged as no fly zones due to the current situation. Even so Kiev isn't very far away, I wouldn't like to be in a plane over Ukraine right now...
2014-08-20 01:30
yeah cuz you need to fly from germany to ukraine right.. 20 hour drive. and those parts that separatists are controlling are far away from SLTV
2014-08-20 01:34
Australia TotalEclipse 
A 20 hour drive to Ukraine doesn't sound like much fun to me. I know the militarised zones are at the other side of Ukraine I'm just saying I think it's a fair reason for them to not want to go.
2014-08-20 01:50
It may be save in Kiev right now. But its still the capital of Ukraine, that makes it a target for potential attacks or some bomb or whatnot. I wouldn't want to be there if that happens. They can do everything since they are shooting damn planes out of the sky.

2014-08-20 16:01
Because it could basically be war anytime now? :|
2014-08-20 21:34
It wouldn't be in Kiev and I don't think plane is flying over the war-zone as it's in another part of Ukraine.
2014-08-20 21:59
I heard such news mouz- one player dont want to come Vp - are busy, some of them have family busines Titat - vacation Epsilon - dont want to come fnatic - confirmed
2014-08-20 16:25 They updated the page again...NO VP...sad shit...ez win for fnatic...if anyone else goes...Last time it was NIP,Titan(playing better than now),VP and Navi !
2014-08-20 16:35
wuuuut, what gamers have with political situation there is no war at city where they would play.
2014-08-20 17:29
That's ridiculous I was in Kiev previous week and didn't see anything of the chaos in the eastern region there. Kiev is quite a nice city :)
2014-08-20 17:45
Titan - match for last spot ?? maybe ?
2014-08-21 09:58
