BnTeT to miss StarSeries S3

TyLoo star Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand will miss the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3 event due to visa problems, the team have announced.

The Indonesian talent did not have enough time to apply for a visa to enter Ukraine, having joined TyLoo only two weeks ago from Recca.

The news comes as a heavy blow to the Chinese team, with Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand having been their top performing player at the recent China Cup, his debut event for TyLoo, with an impressive 1.44 Rating


BnTeT will not be able to play in Kiev for his new team

Replacing BnTeT at the event will be WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong, who currently plies his trade for ViCi Gaming, the organisation's main team after the VG.CyberZen lineup was split into two rosters

The StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3 event will run from April 4-9 in Kiev, with 16 teams competing for their share of a $300,000 prize pool. 

TyLoo will attend the Ukrainian event with:

China Ke "captainMo" Liu
China Zhen "HZ" Huang
China Hui "DD" Wu
China HaoWen "somebody" Xu
China WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong (stand-in)

He was their star player, and has been somewhat of hard-carrying Tyloo. Will be difficult for them, to find a replacement fast. Edit: Zhoking is the replacement. But still dont see him having the impact that BnTeT had.

He played in a tier 3 tournament tho. Maybe he is obsessed with his stats and doesn't want to get matched against tier 1 teams.

He is barely a pro. He hasn't been to any tier 1 tournaments and he got picked up by this team two weeks ago.

If he is their star player, I think TyLoo would want him above any other player in the team against T1 teams. It's not that they wouldn't want the other players, but this dude is insane.

Half the Chinese teams can't even bring their full line-ups to an international venue with this Visa shit. If there needs to be a player union, it should address this kind of shit and not some exclusivity crap.

This is also what happened to MongolZ back when they qualified for the MLG Columbus Offline Qualifier ! They had a chance in their group and they could have qualified for the major ! They just destroyed talents like Machinegun and Tsogoo who could have had potential against bigger teams ! Same in this case ! Rip TyLoo at StarLadder :((((( , but maybe they will have a chance tho because zhoking isn't a bad player at all
2017-03-27 14:58
yeah I do think zhoking is as a good aimer as bntet, but bntet is a beast in clutches! anyway zhoking is tyloo's best choice, good luck to them.

2017-03-27 15:11
Because they can literally do shit about it. This got nothing to do with organisations, StarLadder, any organisational union or anything, this is politics and bureaucracy. And especially Ukraine, with Crimea-conflict and kinda civil war in the eastern regions of the country won't allow anybody to get into their country without a visa.
2017-03-27 17:40
but i think , if bntet are not going to kiev for SL i-League , he still can play at ZEN eLeague right? that is an advantage for recca, they could win that tournament with bntet beside them
