HellRaisers to take Heroic's place in Tours

Due to visa issues, the teams swapped tournaments, with Heroic flying to Dallas for the ESL Pro League finals and HellRaisers taking an invite to DreamHack Tours.

Due to Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker's denial of an entry visa in the United States and HellRaisers forfeiting the tournament, the Ukrainian organization's team will take Heroic's spot at DreamHack Tours, as the Nordic team will be filling in for the European combine in Dallas.

HellRaisers will play in Tours later this month

This means Kirill "⁠ANGE1⁠" Karasiow & co.'s next tournament will be in France on May 19-21, where they will play the $100.000 open and face teams like Envy, AGO, and Gambit, among others.

 The full team roster for DreamHack Tours so far is:

France Envy Poland AGO
Kazakhstan Gambit United States Torqued
Denmark North Europe HellRaisers

There is always a reason why a visa gets declined.
2018-05-10 00:33
Not always. Maybe should go see some outside?
2018-05-10 02:35
Correct. He has to have something in his past blocking his entry

But a 8th place on epl final would be more valuable, than a win on this tournament. More over, just the participate on epl final would be better...

These CS:GO players shouldn't be so political. No wonder you get denied visa if you go spouting erdoganism every chance you get in this current international situation.
2018-05-09 20:48
what do you mean? did woxic tweet about erdogan?
2018-05-09 20:51
Not at all. finland guy has some mental problems apparently

2018-05-09 21:26
That headline made my sad. but I now I am very glad. Heroic needs to make this a top6 finish as they deserve it - I want them to show a new face - hopefully b0RUP
2018-05-09 21:36
+1 hopefully b0rup.
2018-05-09 22:25
I mean, there is no North Academy right now and I it's the same org behind them. es3tag and b0RUP were a lovely duo in Tricked. but Heroic needs a proper ingame leader. maybe RUBINO can take it when he gets back - I am glad about every day he is out tho. friberg will be temporary and not going to igl ever again....

Why they dont have passports? It would be easier than visa
2018-05-09 23:45
Technically they are working in the USA, so they need a work visa.
2018-05-10 09:18
nice trade event
2018-05-10 01:24
Ridiculous. Why wouldn’t they be allowed a visa to be part of a tournament? It’s embarrassing sometimes to be American these days.
2018-05-10 01:33
Donald trump was the problem

Swapping 100k and 750k tourney gj woxic even the terrorist issa on your team got visa but not you. Well seems that you are the real terrorist

> Unfortunately my visa declined and my teammates don't wanted to go with stand-in Good to see his teammates support him so much.
