kNgV-, destiny to miss EPL Americas due to visa issues - Report
The Brazilian team will not be able to sort out the necessary paperwork in time for the event, which will kick off on April 12, and will have to field João "horvy" Horvath, who has been on the bench since the start of the year, and Imperial member Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves as stand-ins, according to the report.
This is not the first time that kNgV- and destiny have had to deal with visa problems. In 2017, kNgV- was denied entry into the United States by the Immigration services after they learned that he was being paid by Immortals while living in the country under a tourist visa.
This is understood to be the reason why his 100 Thieves team had to miss ELEAGUE Major Boston at the beginning of 2018 due to what the North American organisation described as "immigration issues".
Since INTZ completed the signing of the NoTag roster, in September, the players have been living in Canada. The ESL Pro League Season 9 Americas, which will be played entirely on LAN, is the first event that the team will attend in the United States.
INTZ have been placed in Group A, along with eUnited, NRG and Renegades. These four teams will face each other in best-of-three matches, with the group winner progressing to the season finals, while the runner-up and the third-place finisher will move on to a second group stage.
This means that INTZ will attend the event with:
