BOROS to miss IEM Fall due to visa issues

Newly appointed coach Allan Hender will step in the young Jordanian's place for the RMR event.

Endpoint have announced that 17-year old Mohammad "⁠BOROS⁠" Malhas will not attend the LAN event due to the organization being unable to acquire the visa in the required time frame.

"Due to the tight timescales between the closed qualifier and the event, along with other factors, and despite continuous discussions with the Swedish Embassy and authorities, we have not been able to get a visa processed," the British organization announced on Twitter.

IEM Fall will be Allan's first LAN event with the team (photo: Flashpoint)

In their statement, Endpoint stressed that the problems arose from time constraint issues rather than BOROS being denied the visa. The 17-year-old will travel to events and bootcamps with the team in the near future.

Hender officially joined Endpoint on September 22 and has no previous background in competitive CSGO.

Endpoint will field the following squad at IEM Fall:

United Kingdom Thomas "⁠Thomas⁠" Utting
United Kingdom Kia "⁠Surreal⁠" Man
United Kingdom Max "⁠MiGHTYMAX⁠" Heath
Netherlands Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel
United Kingdom Allan "Allan" Hender

I don't think that's an option considering it's an RMR event and switching players will result in a 20% loss of their RMR points. Edit: + what #13 said.

I don't think they can loan any actual player because of the RMR rules afaik. Nevertheless the situation is very unfortunate for Endpoint and this would've been a good situation for them to prove themselves against top tier teams while also having a chance of qualifying for the major. Still hoping that they can make something out of this bad situation. :)

i don't think that they will lose any RMR points if they switch a player, since currently they have 0, and when u change a player, the points get deducted from the ones u currently have, so they could go for someone, but the timeline to submit a full roster is probably too late already.

I thought they had some RMR points, my bad then. I guess you are right. The roster locks have been set quite soon after the qualifiers ended, I would assume.
2021-09-28 12:40
If you use a sub during an event your event points will be deducted by 20% while the points you have before the event will not be deducted at all. If you switch players afterwards your point that you have are deducted by 20% again at that moment. What they could have done was add a sub to the roster before the roster lock so they could have used that person in case this would have happened. But these thinks are always easy to say afterwards.

this happens so often teams will have to start appointing some random t2 aim guy as coach so they can use a 6 man roster without deductions and list the actual coach as analyst. also would help the coach-analysts get around their bug abuse bans. natosaphix can be complexity's new coach for example

The only thing you could have against Endpoint is that they were naive enough to think that they would get taken seriously (athlete status) and get a special treatment.
