No replacement for fnatic at ESL PL

ESL confirmed that fnatic won't be attending ESL Pro League Finals in Brazil due to personal circumstances and revealed that there won't be a replacement team to fill the spot - dropping the number of teams in attendance to 11.

Along with fnatic's announcement of another roster shuffle between them and GODSENT, the Swedish powerhouse revealed that they won't be travelling to the ESL Pro League Season 4 finals in São Paulo, Brazil this week - due to personal reasons.


fnatic will skip the Pro League finals due to personal circumstances  

ESL revealed that they contacted all European non-relegation Pro League teams to find a replacement but on such a short notice all teams declined - either due to conflicting commitments or visa issues.

With this change, group A will have only five teams, while group B will remain as it currently is - with no adjustments being put in place.

Groups for ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals are now as follows:

Group A Group B
Brazil Immortals Sweden NiP
Europe mousesports Brazil SK
North America OpTic Europe FaZe
France Envy Denmark Dignitas
United States Liquid United States Cloud9
  Europe NRG

2016-10-24 16:18
source? i doubt that teams would decline a 750k prizepool tourney
2016-10-24 16:19
well, this guy also said that G2 or HR would fill the spot which didn't happen, i doubt that all teams would decline a spot on a 750k lan @edit nvm i got it now, teams are not declining they just don't have the time to get the VISA's

I said it many teams. ESL and Brasil are too shitty for top teams like VP and NAvi to bother and they didnt want to advance to lan finals from the start.

2016-10-24 19:08
they need visas , cause they will "work" on the country, therefore the need for them, in such short notices is almost impossible to get them
2016-10-24 19:58
Yeah, Poland still need visa to enter the USA :(

eles nao exigem visto apra turismo, mas como eles vem a trabalho, ai ja é outra coisa.
2016-10-24 18:15
Shut up.. All European Union (Schengen Area) don't need VISA to enter in Brazil and Brazilians don't need visa to enter in all european contries BUT UK. For instance, most european countries need VISA to enter in RUSSIA, Brazilians don't. Brazil only requires VISA for countries who requires VISA for Brazilians. RECIPROCITY STATE.
2016-10-24 18:20
turism visa they dont need, but they need to come with work visas retard
2016-10-24 18:23
calm down man.You dont need visa to travel(for pleasure),but you need visa if you will work(that´s the case)
2016-10-24 20:47
People from Schengen Area can play for fun in Brazil. In order to play professional (getting monetary income from Brazil), they need a work visa.

I mean if some team would want to replace fnatic they would have to go there today, that's why probably teams declined- too little time and VP have Eleague next weekend
2016-10-24 16:25
twitter.com/NWDeKay/status/7903534358203.. basically it was too short of a notice for anyone to book and prepare everything, since the event starts in just 2 days
2016-10-24 16:22
BS! ESL asked VP days ago. Now is just press release. VP has better events to play then waste time in 3rd world for a few dollars more. VP even said they care only about WESG and EPICENTER this year. Rest is too low for them (the best, the richest, 10 major winners team).

For tourism yes, what about if you're going there to work (i.e. play a professional sports tournament with prize pool)?
2016-10-24 18:44
2/3 of the pros play on ESTA Just Sayin
2016-10-24 19:11
ESTA might allow business trips (or certain kinds of business trips), I'm not sure about that, that's why I asked. I'm pretty sure that for example business-visits are allowed. But when prize money comes into play, the rules may or may not be different.
2016-10-25 19:06
No it doesn't. It keeps if you need to get it 4 days before tournament starts, ofc all teams are gonna decline that invitation this lite. As you can see all other teams got their visas easily on time. Not their fault Fnatic switching players and realizing they need bootcamp and pracc over last place reward from tournament.
2016-10-24 16:46

Jet-lag is real problem for last minute entry, yes. But visa is really big deal too: I dont think you can enter the country, before you have correct, working, visa. And bureaucracy doesnt work on weekend, so it was extremely likely a team wouldnt get visas in time.
2016-10-25 02:02
well ,i prefer to see a team like optic or c9 getting a problem with visas than a EU team , because another team from EU would be as good or better than NA team
2016-10-25 02:59
No EU team had a problem with visas. You just can't expect to get one in 3-4 days. They take a week-2 at the least.
2016-10-26 14:06
if you follow correctly we are talking about jetlag and event that should be held in EU instead of NA/SA. just a reminder ,all the team that were at epicenter 2days ago, 17h flight and more with airport wait ,jetlag and look at xizt hotel... this should be the last event in brazil for csgo nothing to gain to do it there

They need to go through pro ladder to join starseries
2016-10-24 16:55
but for what ? fnatic also decline 24h before event start some starlader lan ?
2016-10-24 17:05
There is a rule in Starladder if you refuse to go on LAN for any reason you got the penalty and need to pass Proseries before joining Starseries.

this is so fucking easy for SK, and monkeys will destroy hltv again :/ NOTHING SPECIAL AGAINST t2 TEAMS
2016-10-24 16:27
sadly yes, theres no way sk dont win this only way is if dignitas keep their form and and if magiskboy and konfig is on the gear or not at esl
2016-10-24 16:29
pretty sure either NiP or dignitas will win this tournament

I hope that NiP vs. dignitas is going to be the grand final of the tournament. We've had 6 different winners in the past 6 events and I'm pretty sure this is the end of that "streak" :D
2016-10-24 16:34
indeed
2016-10-24 16:42
no they wont,SK feel the pressure against VP,but perform better against almost all other teams. TBH i dont even understand what happened to VP in the final after nuke. I mean ive never seen VP thrashed 2 maps in a row this bad ,by anyone recently. Dignitas played really really well to win epicenter,but i dont think all the factors that influenced their win can be replicated exactly again. mark my words :)

2016-10-24 16:50
I mean it was expected but it's now official. Why would VP not accept it, obviously because they are burned out and it's completely normal as they've been travelling a lot. But this proves my point they threw those last online matches because they just simply didn't want to travel to the finals, it was too much. I understand it but it's just funny all these dumbdfucks who were telling me why would they throw bla, bla, bla...

2016-10-24 19:22
The other point is just what a joke this tournament has become because of ESL incompetence and being too many LANs which makes it hard to prepare at all for all the events and it makes it so players burn out tbh. People can say whatever but sadly this can't be considered a tier 1 tournament because a lot of the top teams are missing.
2016-10-24 16:54
I'm usually on the ESL hate train etc but in this instance it's not really their fault that fnatic dropped out last minute.

Salty brainless faggot strikes again. VP and Navi both said no. VP ,7th place, was asked first. But brainless ahmed cant understand that. VP were next in line. SK has been thrashed so many times by VP recently that its affected your brain now...

2016-10-24 18:28
I can guarantee you if VP could attend but not qualified ESL would give VP the spot no matter place.
2016-10-24 18:31
Are you stupid or something ? VP does NOT want to attend. Also its obvious that VP would get the spot because they finished 7th place after dignitas...but then logic evades you. So yes VP was asked first and then the team finishing 8th and so on. Use your brains.
2016-10-24 21:01
Calm down Indian. Learn to read. ESL does anything for VP and find wholes for them. (Not in this particular scenario though)
2016-10-24 21:34

lmao was this the attempt to bring VP in? :DDD Jokes aside, wtf is that from fnatic. Just get a sub in from anywhere, in other leagues that would disqualify them from the next season. We obv don't know the story behind this but it is so disrespectful towards all the other european teams that fought hard trying to get into the finals... EDIT: Just read on reddit that fnatic contacted esl a while ago, it is still strange how they don't play with a sub.
2016-10-24 18:47
Just send in Selfless so we can have a 12-team event.

Next big event should be organised in North Korea. ESL is great at doing their tournaments in countries that are dangerous just to be in. Check liveleak if you need proof. If they continue to do events in countries like that, they should do next event in a real warzone, that would be a accomplishment to get the players there and the team that would survive should get 1 million $ prize then. That would be quality family entertainment.
2016-10-25 00:54
