FRENCH CANADIANS to miss the Americas Minor

According to Keven "PLAYER1" Champagne's recent Tweets, his team—FRENCH CANADIANS—will not attend the Americas Minor due to visa issues.

FRENCH CANADIANS made headlines earlier this week with a win over Immortals that eliminated the Brazilian side and got Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik and co. a slot at the upcoming Americas Minor Championship for the ELEAGUE 2018 Major.

Despite a great showing in the qualifier, Subroza won't play at the Minor

However, despite the fact that the LAN will take place in Toronto, Canada, FRENCH CANADIANS will not be able to attend the event due to visa issues. It is more than likely that the player that can't make the trip is Mert "REOVA" Bayrak, a Turkish national living in the United States. 

Due to rules which don't allow standins at the Minor, FRENCH CANADIANS will have to concede their slot. Their replacement is not known at this point, with any one of Immortals, SoaR and Misfits being a potential one, as they all finished the Swiss group stage with a 2-2 record.

The team list for the Americas Minor currently looks like this:

United States CLG  United States Liquid

yes, they will give a chance to soar, imt and misfits, not gf. Yeah, they play at a very good level on the first two matches, then choked and lost to fucking soar, they played then like three times and smashed them, now they couldnt win against them on gf's best map, i dont think they deserve it, they got a lot of things to work about their game and their confidence aswell

The name of the team is literally fucking "FRENCH CANADIANS" and they can't attend to an event on fucking Canada(a country that doesn't even have problems regarding visas and immigration from Turkey and middle eastern nations). Seems totally right, this isn't Subroza dodging LAN one more time at all. This guy will probably just be the new jOELZ, getting a new excuse everytime the opportunity of playing a LAN appears the him/them. And guess what? He will probably get kicked from the team in some months because his teamates will get pissed of also not being able to play on even smaller LAN events

It's because of the current situation between the USA and Turkey. He's not a citizen. If Reova leaves he probably won't be able to come back in the states. Which means that any LAN out of the USA he won't be able to attend? Shitty situation to be in.

The kind of person who cheated to get there.
2017-10-19 03:30
That would make absolutely no sense! Cheat to get to a tournament not to get in it after ? If you cheat, It’s certain that you want to go the furthest in a tournament.
2017-10-19 14:16
I fuck they do a qualifier between the 3 last teams and Misfits and Soar rekt Immortals, so Boltz can cry more on how his team is shit now.

That fucking blows. Which means he is an Illegal immigrant in the US. If he was legal he would have a greencard which allows entry to Canada without visa.
