BnTeT to miss ELEAGUE Major due to visa issues

MIRAA
December 13th, 2017 21:26

TyLoo star Hansel "BnTet" Ferdinand is ruled of ELEAGUE Major Boston due to visa issues, the player has revealed.

The news comes as a huge blow to TYLOO, who are set to attend their first Major after Valve decided to expand the competition from 16 to 24 teams by including the qualifying stage in the event.

This is not the first time that Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand has been forced to sit out of tournaments due to visa issues. In March, he missed the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3 event, in Kiev, with WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong stepping in for the team.

BnTeT could not secure a visa to enter the US

TYLOO have not yet announced who their fifth player at the Major will be, but, with the rosters already locked, HLTV.org knows that it is likely they will have to field Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu, who recently left the Chinese team to coach Heroic.

As the runner-up of the Asia Minor, TYLOO have been placed in the New Challengers stage, which will run from January 12-15 in Atlanta. This stage will feature the top two teams from each of the four Minors plus the bottom eight finishers from PGL Major Krakow.

This VISA shit fucking sucks. ELEAGUE should somehow previously talk with USA government to prevent situations like this. I think the Olympics and every other big event organization that attracts professionals from all over the world, does the same. They would show that these guys are PROFESSINALS coming to USA to work, then they would back to their countries.

2017-12-13 22:25
wait... how would they use peacemaker if the only one who could speak english in the team was bntet?
2017-12-13 22:24

im thinking the same, there is more than enough time to working for it. just push it harder, maybe they can fix it or something.
2017-12-14 06:02
you can't get us visa in 30 days. in russia you should wait like 60-90 days for an interview, and you still have high risk that you will be declined. i guess in other 3rd countries the situation is the same or worse.

This fucking esports will never grow up from monkey to human, why still every player does visa solo by himself? why then the organization exists? have u seen in football that someone from team missed game because the only of team couldn't make visa? organizers from USA are one of the best but 15 years in a row they can't give list of players to gov. So or time to step up and make some shit like FIFA in esports with rules and standards or leave this on monkey lvl and stop hosting all majors in a country with the North Korea visa regime.

dude, the only reason they are saying he is Polish because Polish flag looks like Indonesian flag, the only difference is the color stripes are reversed.

2017-12-14 16:28

2017-12-14 16:55
i don´t really get why they host a Major an USA ..... always some Players have visa issues there! just do it in europe where there is no such bs going on!"
2017-12-14 17:10
this kind of things wasnt supposed to happen on 21st century... sad

the only way USA can compete internationally is by refusing visas for best foreign players LUL

stop hosting majors in the fucking US, also you probably have to pay extra as viewer to watch stream on twitch rather than youtube , freaking police state
