visas is what you do at a Consulate, not Embassy.

Unfair. Dozens of better teams could use those 50k

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?
2016-08-24 00:39
damn RIP Cyberzen
2016-08-24 00:42
Soooo, MK vs Echo Fox in the final :)
