kNgV- to miss ELEAGUE Premier group matches

Immortals star Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe will have to sit out his team's ELEAGUE Premier group matches due to visa issues, the player has revealed.

The 22-year-old wrote on Twitter that he is about to return to Brazil, where he will stay "for a while" as he looks to solve the visa issues that forced him to leave the United States last week.

Immortals have not yet announced who their fifth player in ELEAGUE Premier will be, with the Brazilian team due to play their first match on Friday evening, against mousesports

kNgV- will not be eligible for Immortals' ELEAGUE Premier matches

Team coach Rafael "⁠zakk⁠" Fernandes has been filling in for Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe in the ESL Pro League as João "⁠horvy⁠" Horvath, who was recently signed from k1ck, has also not been granted a visa yet.

After returning to Brazil last week, kNgV- flew to Canada to compete at DreamHack Open Montreal, helping Immortals to finish in second place. After the final, which was marred by a map forfeit, he came under fire for threatening CLG member Pujan "⁠FNS⁠" Mehta, who had written that three of the Brazilian players had been "hung over" in the semi-final match between the two teams.

maybe you cant make a permanent team with fnx, but him give your team a boost/exp/firepower for 1/2/3 tournaments, is the best stand in you can choose from the entire scene.

Well iirc, there's a law in the US against death threats that can lead to you losing your visa, so that might be the reason behind that

2017-09-12 14:06
Kng's death threat would not get taken seriously anywhere in brazil and usa. You have to prove he had intent to kill or meant it with 100% seriousness, a twitter post out of anger is not enough to convict anyone. It is equivalent of your mom saying "DAVID ILL KILL YOU!!"
2017-09-12 14:58
5 replies
Nope, it's taken extremely seriously even if they're joking, especially since getting a visa is difficult nowadays. And he did seem to say it out of anger, he was accusing Fns of being a liar.

Nope french fakeflagger sory, just saying ill kill you on the internet once while angry does not get charges. You have to prove his intent, other than "he was mad". Anyways anyone who can speak english wouldnt take it as serious, it wasnt "im gonna slit your throat and chop you up and hide ur body" it was "prove it or ill kill you" you can easily argue he didnt mean literally, dumb kids dont know how law works kkkkkk, maybe in Quebec happy fanboy not nin brazil/usa, I studied law for 5 years I know what im talking about

The US government looks at social media when deciding on visas, so we'll see I guess. And I'm not French or French Canadian. Happy is just a beast.

Ok yes maybe I misunderstood, I meant about charges brought against him. Visa's are different, because suspicion isnt enough to be in trouble legally, but suspicion is enough to be denied priveledges like getting your visa

probably no charges, possibilities of a visa are slim though.
