Yeah, most of these teams are shit (although I think losing Bravado was prolly an upgrade). MK is prolly gonna run away with it. Echo Fox has a chance, same with Alternate Attax. ENCE might have a slight chance but I think it is doubtful without Allu. CyberZen would have also had a decent chance if they were there, however I think MK would still be the big favorite going in.

Conspiracy by embassy to take down the competition so that ENCE win??
2016-08-24 00:34
Hasn't there been problems with teams not getting VISA's in poland in the past? Why would ESEA host a 'global' challenge there if that is the case?

damn RIP Cyberzen
