Is it the first time any team has not been able to make it due to travel restrictions?
The answer to this situation is clearly no. The ongoing situation of covid 19 has breached the backbone of the flexible rules of international traveling. The same situation as FunPlus Phoenix arose for Bren Esports for the Masters’ Berlin. The SEA Region winning team was unable to travel to their dream tournament due to being unable to provide player visas on time.
This was happened due to covid restrictions which made the players’ visa process more difficult. The team Bren Esports was awarded 175 VCT points and to award the decided prize money for qualifying for masters berlin.
