They are actually in Kiev now, and they were at the event with Lenovo in Almaty (Kazakhstan) yesterday on sep 15th, to which they flew directly from Moscow after winning Blast. So yeah, they had to fly quite a lot.

idfk how avangar got 2 the major final but one thing for sure is that they don't deserve 4th place, could see them on around 10th place but not more than that. a spot for them here is good tho 2 show where they really belong in the rankings
