SL i-League S2 moved to Kiev
Starladder has announced that the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 finals have been moved from Nanjing to Kiev.
In a statement, Starladder explained that, with the G20 summit taking place in Hangzhou from September 4-5, China has tightened up its visa policy as part of a temporary increase in security measures.
As a result, several players have been denied visas to enter the country, while others have been hit by visa delays, a problem that, according to Starladder, many international tourists have experienced since the start of the month.
