lollipop21k: all 1WIN players obtained visas and went to the RMR tournament
1WIN players managed to resolve visa issues and travel to the venue of the upcoming European RMR event, member of the team Igor "lollipop21k" Solodkov announced via his Telegram channel.
A few days ago, representatives of 1WIN told journalists that only lollipop21k and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev had all the necessary documentation for entering the Schengen countries, while Aleksandr "TRAVIS" Timkiv, Denis "deko" Zhukov and Aleksandr "glowiing" Matsievich did not have the visa.
Earlier, 1WIN players on their social media have repeatedly told that they were lacking proper preparation for the RMR. On September 19, the team started bootcamping in Moscow but almost immediately had to focus on obtaining visas.
Besides 1WIN, visa issues also affected K23 and Aurora. All these teams consist mainly of Russians, for whom, since the beginning of September, the European Union has complicated the rules for obtaining visas.
The Europe RMR will take place in Malta from October 4 to 9. Besides 1WIN, fighting for eight tickets to IEM Rio Major 2022 will be FaZe, Team Spirit, NIP, G2, Cloud9, Bad News Eagles, Sprout, Aurora, fnatic, forZe, Eternal Fire, B8, ECSTATIC, GamerLegion and Astralis.
