TheMongolz secure visas for IEM Oakland

The winners of the South-East Asian qualifier for IEM Oakland 2017, TheMongolz, have secured U.S. visas that will allow them to participate in the event.

Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva and co. qualified for the upcoming Intel Extreme Masters event back in September, beating teams such as MVP PK and Chiefs along the way to claim the Asian spot at the event.

ncl and co. won't miss out on a big tournament this time

Almost a month later, TheMongolz have announced that their players have received visas for the United States, which means that they will actually be able to play at the event. The Mongolian team had issues with visas last year when they qualified for the MLG Colombus Major Qualifier, and had to skip the event due to that. In the end, Splyce came in as a last-second replacement and managed to earn a spot at the Major.

The last big international event for TheMongolz, who are currently ranked #106 in our rankings, was IEM Katowice 2016, while they finished 5-6th at the two last Asian Minors that were held.

Just to remind you, IEM Oakland 2017, will be held on November 16-19 and will feature a $300,000 prize pool, with the following teams in attendance:

Denmark Astralis United States Cloud9
Europe FaZe France G2
Kazakhstan Gambit Brazil Immortals
United States Liquid Sweden NiP
Brazil SK Mongolia TheMongolz
France EnVyUs Europe OpTic
Mongolia Enkhtaivan 'Machinegun' Lkhagva

I feel like it will be a very easily obtained victory by G2 Esports. (Please do not delete this comment as it is written with politeness in mind)

I will say G2 aren't playing so good again it's not because I want to go against you but they haven't played so well again and DH Masters Malmø was more other teams who fucked up there made them win but they won ofc I can't take it away from them I will just mean they don't perform as a number 2 team

I am glad your ideas aren't reflected by whom you're replying to. G2 themselves said that they weren't expecting to win. But the main reason that I believe they will perform superior is their abilty to improve themselves after a hard or unanticipated loss. After a loss many teams consider changing the roster instead of changing the roles or their game-flow.

yeah I agree with that idea that you can still just change thinks on the teams you doesn't need to change the players and G2 has a strong line-up they just need to figure out how they play best then I believe that they can be pretty deathly but they jsut haven't found it yet :)

Faze is there. This is faze era. They are going to win every single tournament they attend.

2017-10-16 16:17
A single round? Or get a single frag? But srsly, they are so inconsistant, but i heard Machinegun and Zilkenberg are beasts

Indeed, but d[S] weren't on point that final. When they peak, they can beat everyone (maybe a few european/na tier2 teams if you want to dream) but they're so inconsistent. Seriously, I watched that series live, and were screaming at them to kick ImpressioN by the end of it
2017-10-17 14:46
ds better than mongolz ? lol ds cant even beat tier 2 mongolan team they got 16-7nd by BNM fuck outta here and plus DS never even won one map on lan vs mongolz stfu
