TheMongolz to miss eXTREMESLAND Asia Finals

October 9th, 2017 09:51

TheMongolz have pulled out of eXTREMESLAND Asia Finals, which is set to commence a week before the upcoming Asia Minor, due to visa issues for the Korean event and IEM Oakland.

TheMongolz reigned supreme over their fellow countrymen KhARUM in the Mongolia qualifier's grand final for eXTREMESLAND in August. Despite being one of the first few teams to secure their spot to the Chinese tournament, visa matters — for the Asia Minor and IEM Oakland — have once again plagued Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva's crew.

Machinegun and co. withdraw from the Chinese event has learned that the TheMongolz have a visa appointment with the US embassy in Mongolia on October 16, which causes a schedule conflict with eXTREMESLAND as they are expected to arrive in China by then.

Meanwhile, in a recent tweet, the organization revealed it will take "at least fifteen working days" for Temuulen "Zilkenberg" Battulga and company to obtain their Korean visa, ahead of the Asia Minor.

Therefore, TheMongolz have decided to withdraw from the $100,000 event after declining their invitation to the ROG MASTERS APAC qualifiers too. The eXTREMESLAND organizers have confirmed that KhARUM will replace them.

The updated team list for eXTREMESLAND 2017 in Shanghai, China is as follows:

Australia Kings Mongolia KhARUM
China ViCi China Eclipse
China Flash United Arab Emirates NASR
Indonesia Recca Taiwan Talon
Japan SCARZ Absolute Malaysia Fire Dragoon
India Entity Thailand Beyond

Why do they hold Tournaments in places like USA, which has conflicts with almost 80% countries of the problems for everyone.... I dont see anyone having via problems for EU events....
