Visa issues have reared their ugly head once again. This time Invictus Gaming’s arrival to Bucharest, Romania, for StarSeries XII DreamHack Bucharest LAN finals has been impacted after the team was held up in Frankfurt Airport due to Schengen Visa issues. Frankurt’s airport police have detained Wong “ChuaN” Hock Chuan for twelve hours. The team will be taking a flight that arrives in Romania at approximately 14:00 CEST. Without the Schengen Visa, the team is not able to even leave the airport to stay at a hotel or relax outside of the airport.
Of course we will not push iG to play right after coming from this long flight. Schedule updates will be published closer to morning

In order to avoid repeating the controversy caused at MLG Championships regarding Not Today and their flights, Vitalli “V1Lat” Volochai has coordinated and adjusted everything to ensure that the team will still be playing all of their matches and will have minimal stress about their participation.
