B.O.O.T-d[S] replaces Signature at Asia Minor

BOOT-d[S] will replace Signature at the Asia Minor, after cruising past Devious in the SEA last chance qualifier, 2-0.

The Singaporean side had to field Leslie "⁠Bobosaur⁠" Soen as a stand-in for Kazakhstani member Alikhan "⁠w1nt3r⁠" Kopzhanov. This is due to the latter not having enough time to apply for a British visa, while the former is a Singaporean citizen that can enter the United Kingdom without one.

The best-of-three series kicked off on Devious ' map pick, Nuke, which did not start well for them, as Benedict "⁠Benkai⁠" Tan's crew held their ground on the CT-side with a 12-3 half. Danial "⁠RedKoh⁠" Hakim's men secured the second pistol round, but BOOT-d[S] eventually closed the map, 16-7.

ImpressioN and co. departs for the Asia Minor in London tonight

On Dust2, Devious failed to deliver on the defensive side with only one round on the board against their fellow countrymen in the first half. Anthony "⁠ImpressioN⁠" Lim's squad continued with the momentum on their map pick, locking down the 16-1 victory and the 2-0 series.

Yeah their first match is in 26 hours and 30 min, it will probably take 13 hours? to fly to London then they need sleep for about 7-9 hours and then play their match in a couple hours with media day included.

Flight would probably be longer than that but would depend on things like stop over as I am unsure on if you can get a direct flight from Singapore especially with such short notice.

...didnt they specifically do all minors in the uk with enough given time so visa issues couldnt come up? why is there a last chance qualifier anyway days before the event
2018-07-15 11:02
2 replies
yes, they're doing the minors in uk to guarantee that everyone qualifying for the major already has a visa. faceit can't control if visa issues come up or not, but this way all the teams with visa issues are filtered out at the minors. they did give all teams enough time, but signature's visas were straight up rejected by the uk embassy, including appeal. that's why a last chance qualifier was held to replace them.
