s1mple to miss DH Austin

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev will not play for Liquid at DreamHack ZOWIE Open Austin, the player has revealed on Twitter.

The 18-year-old is poised to return to Ukraine for a brief period to sort out his visa paperwork after spending the last three months in the United States competing for Liquid. 

As a result, he is ruled out of the upcoming DreamHack Open event and could potentially miss the ESL Pro League Finals as well if Liquid manage to qualify for the event, which will take place from May 11-15 in London.


s1mple ruled out of DH Open Austin 

Scheduled for May 6-8, DreamHack ZOWIE Open Austin will feature eight teams, who will compete for their share of a $100,000 prize pool.

Liquid, who finished 13th-16th at DreamHack Masters Malmö last week, have not yet commented on this matter. In theory, the team could attend the event in Austin with Eric "adreN" Hoag, who is still officially contracted to the organisation. The 25-year-old acted as a stand-in for Liquid at the qualifier for MLG Columbus and at the Major itself due to issues over Kenneth "koosta" Suen's eligibility.

2016-04-19 20:04
Its because your small countries dont have to deal with immigration at the rate we do. Thats why NA teams are filled with ten different nationalities. But a swedish team is all swedish. Or a polish team is all polish.

Nope, that is because US has never been based on one national identity and that's why call everyone American who lives there. +US teams speak English, the language that everyone speaks in the world, so it is easy to take in foreigners...

ESL pro league finals are in London, that's why the question. Let's try to read the article before.
2016-04-19 14:51
He might have to be present in the Ukraine while sorting out the issues, which means he wouldn't be able to travel anywhere regardless of it being to London or back to the States.
2016-04-19 16:43
Yeah, I guess so. But I meant how hard it is actually to acquire it, if they ask to much shit for it compared to the US and how much time it takes compared to the US.
2016-04-19 16:44
Well this is all implying TL makes it to Pro League finals, and I don't know if you've seen their current standings, but it's looking sort of bleak.
2016-04-19 16:50
Regardless on that, just wondering.
2016-04-19 16:51
Well, I don't know much about Visas in general to answer that question. But what I gathered from a few Ukranian people in the comments here, they've said that Ukraine's paperwork process can be shitty

Why are all csgo pros too fucking stupid to fill out a visa correctly
2016-04-19 14:10
Englando is hardo((
2016-04-19 15:53
because its not a matter of filling out an application if the US govt doesnt recognize csgo as a professional sport then s1mple cant get a work visa to live in the US, he must use a visitors visa. and visitors visas expire. its why he must return home and apply again.
2016-04-19 16:39
They do recognize it now I'm pretty sure
2016-04-19 16:52
And you are pretty wrong, not even LoL has athlete/work visas and the NA league is mostly Koreans and Europeans playing there.
