Vega Squadron unable to attend GESC Thailand 07.05.2018 Author // Konservator

Right before the series of Asian tournaments some of our players faced visa problems.

We have to withdraw from GESC: Thailand Dota 2 tournament two days before it’s start. The process of getting visas to MDL tournament in Changsha took more time than expected, so everal players will only receive their ID’s after the beginning of the GESC tournament. We already informed the organizers about the problem in order not to create any problems with the tournament itself.

We apologize to our fans that were getting ready to watch our matches and cheer for us. This way the only DPC tournament in our schedule before the TI8 will be MDL Changsha Major that is scheduled for May 14-20.

Georgy «drAmer» Faleev, Vega Squadron sports director:

«Unfortunately, we have to withdraw from GESC Minor due to visa problems. Our Thailand visas has been ready for quite a while now, but the problem was in Chinese consulate in Bishkek - they delayed the issue of visas for W_Zayac and Blizzy for MDL Major, so the players just can’t get their ID’s in time.

After Perfect World Masters bad experience, we started making Chinese visas right after we won MDL qualifiers, but it still took more than a month for Chinese part to do their part. For the last 10 days we did everything we could to enhance the process, but they only delayed the interviews or declined our appeals. Looks like the visas will be right in the middle of GESC Minor.

Going to the Minor with 2 replacements right before the Major makes no sense at all: our team will not display the right performance in Thailand and won’t have time to prepare for one of the most important tournaments this season»
