Every year, without fail, there are always Visa issues for Dota 2 teams heading to tournaments in different parts of the world – unfortunately this has now affected Team Adroit one week prior to the ESL One Los Angeles Major.
According to the above post made on the team’s Twitter account just a short time ago, the team captain, Marvin ‘Boombacs’ Rushton has been unable to secure a United States Visa. The post goes on to say that the team have tried every possible route to obtain a Visa for the player but that none have worked out. With the team flying out to Los Angeles later this week, it seems as though they do have a stand-in already planned, who they will announce in the coming days.
While Visa issues have become less prevalent in more recent times, it still is not easy for many teams and players from smaller countries to sometimes get their Visas into others – such as the USA. While tournaments outside America have also seen some problems for a few players, we can only hope that this incident remains isolated and more teams don’t begin to have the same problems.
With ESL One Los Angeles less than a week away, we will keep you up to date on any and all possible issues that teams are facing with Visas as well as bringing you the news of who will be standing in for Boombacs and playing for Adroit.
