woxic to miss DreamHack Masters Stockholm due to visa issues

HellRaisers star Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker will not be able to attend DreamHack Masters Stockholm due to visa issues, the Turkish player has revealed.

On Twitter, woxic wrote that the embassy in Kiev returned his passport without the visa, confirming his fears that he will have to sit out the Swedish event, which starts on Wednesday.

Since he already has his passport back, his involvement at the FACEIT Major is no longer at risk as he already has a one-year visa to the United Kingdom.

Visa issues continue to plague woxic

Contacted by HLTV.org, HellRaisers captain Kirill "⁠ANGE1⁠" Karasiow stated that the team are currently working on finding a last-minute stand-in for the event. But in a Twitter post, HellRaisers stated that they are still doing "everything possible" for woxic to join up with the rest of the squad in Sweden.

The CIS Minor champions have been drawn in Group D, along with Gambit, MIBR and mousesports, with their first match in the tournament pitting them against the Brazilian side, on Wednesday at 16:30 .

We are not pleasure these political situations and consequences, it's not just Turkey's problem, it's a problem of world also. HR came this place thanks to woxic and they need to solve his visa problems.
2018-08-29 07:53

Correct, may be if he would try to request VISA for Sweden from Sweden embassy - result would be different! Thats a huge HR's management fault!
2018-08-28 11:15
how did you end up thinking it is the turkish embassy? It’s not obviously. Read the fucking statement.
2018-08-28 11:16
because its clear written there: "On Twitter, woxic wrote that the Turkish embassy in Kiev returned his passport without the visa," But the thing is that Woxic didnt mention that it was Turkish embassy in his tweet, its HLTV's assumption.
2018-08-28 11:20
lol hltv retards got it all wrong, it seems like... here is woxic’s twitlonger post and it is nothing like that: twitlonger.com/show/n_1sqku7u
2018-08-28 11:24
Thx for sharing, that was Swedish embassy for sure. Btw such a badluck for woxic, sad story.

its not about nationality sometimes visa officers just make no sense with respect to all the swedes. i remember once Germany reject my cultural visa for the reason that they don't blv i will comeback even tho i had traveled across the world and had Swedish resident permit and Canadian one. prob the officer who was responsible of his profile didn't like him or found a very small contradiction that let him rejects his visa. remember uk visa is easier to get than Swedish one .. londonstan

visa again :)
2018-08-28 13:20
thousands of young Turkish people taking their visas to visit EU or USA every year. I'm sure there is something wrong about HR or woxic. this is not about racism or something similar
2018-08-28 13:21
Theres still people on this website who are going to blame NA on visa issues tho lmao
2018-08-28 13:21
getting a visa to sweden is ridiculously easy and a relatively fast process. either the embassy royally fucked up by mistake as woxic said or he's LAN dodging. he wasn't denied a visa. this is nothing like the NA visa issues, please tell me your not that retarded
2018-08-28 14:50
Literally anyone who has gotten a visa to go to NA knows its genuinely not a difficult process either. Maybe a longer waiting period, but as long as you supply the correct documents, it's hardly ever an issue. Majority of the time its that the players fuck up. Like with NTC at the major, literally didn't supply their documents in time and then everyone turned and tried to blame NA like somehow its their fault the players were too lazy to apply earlier.
2018-08-29 20:40
it's only relatively easy if your from a country from the visa-waiver program. idk how the fuck you can say "literally anyone" when there are dozens of countries with a refusal rate of over 50% on US visas, some almost as high as 80%. you know literally nothing if you think it's "hardly ever an issue". Mongolz got their visas denied for the whole team before MLG Columbus, and they didn't fuck up their application. jesus fucking christ you're dumb
2018-08-29 20:48
feelsbad for woxic.I really feel sorry for this guy
2018-08-28 13:31
poor guy's career gonna be destroyed by visa issues, how sad it is that you don't choose what country you're from yet you get judged by it, I'm sure he has a solid & clean file, why his is visa refused is absurd.
2018-08-28 13:34
They didnt deny They lost woxic's passport at the start
2018-08-28 13:37
Woxic must have done something in the past. It's always him. Even SS made it to the US this year.

2018-08-28 13:46
We know plenty of turkish e-sports players, twitch streamers, youtubers, editors, (familiar people with woxic, almost same job) they all get visa without any issues (even to USA, think of these days, and they went to the note9 announcement without any problem). I think something is wrong with woxic, sad but could be this is what's going on.

passportindex.org/byRank.php check it out yourself.
2018-08-28 15:51
passportindex.org/comparebyPassport.php?.. if you click the "show only differences" button, you'll see only shit 3rd world countries are visa-free for Turkey. They are irrevelant so both passports are not much different actually and I'm sure you can get an US visa with Jordan passport easier. (only easier than tr of course :D)
2018-08-28 16:00
It's actually all the way around. Syria, Libya, India are visa-free for Jordanians... While Almost all South American countries, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and many other European countries are visa-free for turkish citizens.
2018-08-28 16:05
imho only Japan, South Korean and Singapore could be considered a plus however they're all too far away from Turkey and only top %1 rich ppl can fly there anyway. But if EU region was visa-free for Turkey, then there would be no contest

SAD FOR WOXIC :(
2018-08-29 02:35
I wonder why they refused his visa. He's obviously a professional player who wouldn't illegally stay in Sweden. I don't think he's a threat to a national security either. He got money, he got his invitation, he got his sponsors and team. He's also currently holding a visa from a first world country. So what's the problem here??

haha fucking karrigan xdd Seriously, it's just sad for the whole scene cuz he's really good and he can't play because of his passport. If it's not his mistake like late application, I think organizers should seriously think of new places that don't ask for too many things to get in the country. It happened to some other players for the US visa as well. These players are grinding so hard to be in this level and we can't watch them playing. Or maybe the players' syndicate can help these players. It just sucks mate
2018-08-29 06:57
i think the main problem is that governments or bureaucracies of even the most developed countries don't understand or recognize e-sports. Let's say, if woxic was a tennis player, it would be easier to get a visa because there is a tennis federation in Turkey that is also recognized by international sports organizations. But it's not the same for e-sports.
2018-08-29 08:06
There is a recognition problem all over the world, I see that. But wouldn't it so awkward if Sweden does not recognize e-sports?
2018-08-29 09:05
Well you expect sweden to be more progressive about this but if countries know no international authority that they can verify esports players for being legit or not, then they may hesitate. As far as i know world olympic comittee should recognize to make it totally legit sports. Then noone will have problems.
