LEGIJA to stand in for Envy in Flashpoint

Nikola "⁠LEGIJA⁠" Ninić will take the place of Kaleb "⁠moose⁠" Jayne in Envy's initial matches for Flashpoint 1 while the Canadian player awaits approval of a visa.

The absence of moose deals a significant blow to Envy's outlook at the start of the event in Los Angeles, with the 21-year-old being the team's third-best performer by averaging a 1.09 rating over thirteen maps, just below Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller and Buğra "⁠Calyx⁠" Arkın.

The Canadian missing the opening matches of the league was first alluded to by Noah "⁠Nifty⁠" Francis, who indicated that their coach would need to practice after they arrived in California in a video posted by Envy.

LEGIJA will step back onto the server in place of moose

When contacted by HLTV.org, moose confirmed that he was awaiting a visa in order to secure entry into the United States, but that he was uncertain as to when the application would be approved.

LEGIJA will need to get practice hours in fast, with his last official appearance dating back to August 2019 when he stood-in for BIG in the GG.BET ESL One New York qualifier. Prior to that, he had stepped down from active play in February 2018, leaving a lot of ring rust to be worked out.

While they await the approval of moose's visa, Envy's roster in Flashpoint will be:

United States Noah "⁠Nifty⁠" Francis
United States Ryan "⁠ryann⁠" Welsh
Turkey Buğra "⁠Calyx⁠" Arkın
Poland Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller
Germany Nikola "⁠LEGIJA⁠" Ninić (stand-in)

VISA to go from Canada to USA? Lol, ridiculous
2020-03-13 03:06
Work visa not a travel visa, if money wasn’t on the line he could drive over the boarder no problems
2020-03-13 06:46
I mean even though you make jokes on Canadians, aren't they the country "closest" to you?
2020-03-13 09:11
Yes and Mexico, reguardless they can visit just can’t work without visa (or make money legally)
2020-03-13 10:01
that actually makes sense, but still kinda sad
2020-03-14 18:05
How TF is it difficult to get a visa to US as a Canadian?

2020-03-13 06:42
How dumb are people? It’s not a travel visa, there is money on the line he’s getting paid to play so he needs a work visa. He could walk across the boarder no problems but sense he’s being paid and this is his job he needs a work visa totally different than a travel visa. Good god you people are stupid! Omg Canada to USA needs visa and can’t get one? My god trumps fault hahaha STUPID people who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground
2020-03-13 06:48
In europe you can do whatever you want without visas 😎
2020-03-13 08:22
I couldn’t come there and work without a work visa
2020-03-13 10:00
If you were a European, you could work in any EU country without permission
2020-03-13 10:05
Maybe because Canada and the US aren’t the same as EU?
2020-03-13 11:14
How clever are you 😍😘
