5POWER withdraw from EPL China
The Chinese organisation have pulled out of ESL Pro League Season 8's Chinese division due to their Mongolian duo's visa issues, HLTV.org has learned.
The news comes four days after Dust2.us reported that eUnited would replace 5POWER at MSI MGA Finals, as the Chinese-Mongolian mixture decided to prioritise WESG 2018 China Regional Finals (October 1-3) over the $60,000 event held at ESL One New York on September 29-30.
5POWER revealed that they plan to take a vacation during this short period, allowing former TheMongolz duo Gan-Erdene "dobu" Batbold and Batbayar "kabal" Bat-Enkh to apply and obtain their Chinese visas.
Therefore, they will have to miss out on competing in ESL Pro League Season 8 China closed qualifier, which kicks off today from September 26-27 and October 17-18.
Two spots to the ESL Pro League Season 8 Asian playoffs is up for grabs, which is scheduled to take place online on October 23.
