Nemiga confirmed out of CIS Minor

July 5th, 2018 20:12

Nemiga were denied visas and will be unable to travel to the United Kingdom to take part in the CIS Minor for the upcoming Faceit Major.

Late last month a statement was made concerning Nemiga's chances of attending the CIS Minor, as the Belarusian side had been denied visas to enter the United Kingdom.

Nemiga then tried to appeal the decision, but were once again denied visas to enter the country and will be unable to compete at the event taking place at Twickenham Stadium.

Nemiga will miss the CIS Minor

Nemiga had qualified for the CIS Minor, which will run on July 10-13, after finishing 3rd-5th in the tournament's closed qualifier.

Without Nemiga, the CIS Minor, which will award two spots in the New Challengers Stage, has the following teams currently slated to compete in it:

There wouldn’t be no difference. If they qualified to the major through the minor, they would still have to go to London, which means that they would still need the VISAs.
2018-07-05 20:17
No, there is a difference. Minors pay out prize money, and the teams would at least get the money. If they're not attending the major either way, at least get some extra cash for it.

what a shit mentality to have, and only the top 3 teams at a Minor get prize money anyway
2018-07-09 08:12
Can I have your money then?
2018-07-09 11:39
the whole reason the minors are in the UK is to eliminate teams that qualify for the main event dropping out due to visa issues - it would be worse for Nemiga to qualify and then drop out of the main event
2018-07-05 20:24
yeah that makes sense. it's unfortunate that neither party could do enough to get the VISAs approved.
2018-07-05 20:27
NO :(

Thats actually smart by faceit... Imagine you win minor in lets say kiev, and after winning it you find out that you cant play in major event cuz of visas. Faceit done this well, except the fact that teams are denied does not get access to prize pools. Other than that, its ridiculous that visas for pro gamers get denied. I cant understand the reason of it...

And they (Nemiga) still call themselves "professional organization" and can not solve the problem with visas for a very long time! Disgrace of the organization, for the boys hurt ..

How was it their fault? Rofl
2018-07-06 13:13
failed to establish a dialogue for obtaining visas, this is the goal of their fault. such an organization can not be called professional. although she is not. poor substitute.
2018-07-06 15:08
it can't be their fault since they were working along faceit and when they sent their documents on the second time everyone was double checked by faceit most likely , wasnt the org's fault just some unlucky technicalities
