Signature to miss Asia Minor; 5POWER to field three stand-ins
The Thai team had earned a spot at the Minor after placing top two in the Southeast Asia open qualifier but will be a no-show at the event after their application for a visa was rejected by the British embassy.
5POWER's Thai player, Kitikawin "PTC" Rattanasukol, and Mongolian duo, Gan-Erdene "dobu" Batbold and Batbayar "kabal" Bat-Enkh, were also refused visas, forcing the team to look into their options to be able to compete at the Minor.
The Singaporean is mostly known for his time with BOOT-d[S], with whom he attended DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017 and the WESG 2017 Finals. QKA and Kaze have both represented 5POWER in the past and are currently free agents.

5POWER will attend the event with the following line-up:
The Asia Minor will run from Monday to Friday at the Twickenham Stadium, the Home of England Rugby. The competing sides will square off for two spots in the FACEIT Major's New Challengers Stage in addition to a share of the tournament's $50,000 prize fund.
