July 15th, 2018 13:50

The latest Asia Minor team to be hit by visa problems is Uniquestars who will field in Daniel "ponkt" Punkt in place of Anton "hydra" Sviridon.

Uniquestars qualified for the Asia Minor by winning the Middle East & South Asia Open Qualifier. However, the Israeli squad will not be able to use their full lineup as hydra couldn't secure a visa to enter the United Kingdom where the event is taking place.

ponkt will replace the aforementioned player at the Asia Minor which will take place on July 16-20. The top two teams at the event will qualify for the FACEIT Major New Challengers Stage.

Uniquestars will attend the Asia Minor at the Twickenham Stadium with a stand-in

Uniquestars will compete in Group B alongside TYLOO, Tainted Minds, and 5POWER who will have three stand-ins. Over on Group A, Signature—another team that had visa issues—have been replaced by BOOT-d[S] while VG.Flash are having to play with Zhenghui "z8z" Liu instead of YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng.

Uniquestars will have the following lineup at the Asia Minor:

Israel Lidor "LaNrefNi" Almasi
Israel Guy "Nertz" Iluz
Israel Barak "shp3x" Schneider
Israel Guy "anarkez" Trachtman
Israel Daniel "ponkt" Punkt

1 difference, ez excuse stand in
2018-07-15 14:23
Being underdog and making excuses.. lul whats the point
2018-07-15 16:22
mibr will do that
2018-07-15 23:54
Most likely , but still i don't get it. Just admit that you're bad / worse team , why you always making excuses : Jetlag , standin , new addition , summer break , we didnt prepared etc etc
2018-07-16 22:09
idk i guess its because they still think of themselves as 2x major champions, and are clinging to that old feeling. seems like they're struggling to understand that they are far from being that team anymore
2018-07-16 22:34
Well Astralis for example is much stronger and tactical now , FaZe has much more firepower.. while Astralis/NaVi/FaZe are trying hard to improve , all Mibr squad is doing is dramas , banging each others gf's as rumours says and this kind of sh#ts..
2018-07-18 00:46

Dumbest is saying that they usually play in European tournaments because of obvious political issues, I didn't say it wasn't in Asia.

@galaxzy youre right, but he asked because its strange, cause israeli people don't need to get visa to go to the uk..
2018-07-15 14:45
Maybe don't believe everything u read, israel people do not even need visa for UK, I think problem was actually that person couldn't get his passport in time xddddd

I think that the UK have done the thing with the Visa for not allowing muslims to immigrate to their country, and the issue with visa might be that he didn't applied earlier or something like that, maybe he wasn't 18... idk :D

this Minor is an absolute mess, and therefore proofs that it's a wasted spot. I am sure EU tier3 teams would be a better challange for the top24 at the Major then a palyer with 16 maps on HLTV
