ViCi to miss Asia Minor due to visa issues

ViCi, one of the first four teams invited to the Asia Minor for the ELEAGUE Boston Major, has had to pull out because of bureaucratic issues.

HLTV.org has learned that it will be BOOT-d[S], the DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017 attendees, that will take the place of Bin "⁠Savage⁠" Liu and WeiJie "⁠zhokiNg⁠" Zhong's ViCi when the Asia Minor kicks off in Seoul, Korea, on October 26-29.

The Singaporean team was seen playing at DreamHack Malmö earlier this year

The tournament, which has $50,000 on the line for the top performers, will also have the two best teams at the event qualify for the ELEAGUE Boston Major Main Qualifier in Atlanta, GA, early next year. 

With the inclusion of BOOT-d[S] in lieu of ViCi, the team list is now:

Australia Renegades China TYLOO
Mongolia TheMongolz China Flash
Korea MVP PK Australia Tainted Minds
Australia Kings Singapore BOOT-d[S]

dont think so either but if they manage to pass the Epicenter qulifier they will indeed miss the Asian Minor. Otherwise why would they travel to Europe to play the qualifier in the first place??

how long it takes till valve realize that they cant announce minor/major qualifier in a short time? they really fucked a lot of team with cancellation tournament and visa issues. and this invited minor in asia is just retarted, i mean a lot of potential in sea and not a single team invited form sea region, need one of those invited team to withdraw from visa issues to finally invite team from sea region. and also recca >> boot ds, fuck this whole minor system in every region :|
