Na`Vi sweat over visa issues

Natus Vincere still do not know if they will be able to field their full lineup at ESWC 2015 due to visa problems affecting their Russian players.

Ukrainian duo Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev and Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, and Slovakian AWPer were able to obtain their visas without any problem, but Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and Denis "seized" Kostin have encountered issues and may have to miss the Canadian event, which starts on Friday.

If the Russian duo are unable to travel to Canada, then Na`Vi will field Sergey "starix" Ischuk and Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko as stand-ins, the team announced.

Earlier on Tuesday, Kostin took to Twitter to lament that the Canadian embassy was not doing everything in its power to help him and his Russian team-mate obtain visas to attend the event.


Sixteen teams from all over the world will be competing at ESWC 2015, where a total of $75,000 will be on offer.
