Invictus Gaming will not attend the Frankfurt Major

Dota 2 Gosu “GosuGamers” Gamers

A few moments ago it was confirmed that Invictus Gaming will not be able to attend the first DotA 2 Major Championship. As a result they will be replaced by another team.

Due to some technical issues on his end, the new captain of Invictus Gaming, Su 'Super' Peng will not be able to sort out his passport details in time for Frankfurt Major.

Invictus Gaming is one of the fewest teams that didn’t sign up any substitute players on the Frankfurt Major registration list and this is why they will not be able to play with a stand in. The same problem occurred a month ago for IG when they had to play at MLG World Finals with their coach Zhou 'KingJ' Yang instead of their new player.

Invictus Gaming is not a directly invited team to this major, they are the winners of the Chinese qualifier rounds, with Newbee being the second place finishers. There were two spots available for the Frankfurt Major so both teams secured their spot.

IG’s replacement has not been announced yet but later today it is expected to hear more info later today. If Valve decides to give IG’s spot to the team that finished on the third spot at the Chinese qualifiers that team would be Newbee.Young.

Stay tuned for later updates.


What do you think, should Newbee.Young to receive IG’s spot?

  • Sir "melvinwaaa" Friendzone ,
    Harsh but Newbee Young as replacement is not that bad.
  • Edgar John "ejbayabos" Bayabos ,
    volvo give them a chance please. let kingj as standin again. they really work hard for this. so being replaced by NY is harsh.
  • Bear "TheBearEmperor" God ,
    this is bullshit, totally unacceptable by volvo's standards after ti5. what happened to the volvo that went through all possible measures to secure traveling visas for all players competing at Ti5 ?
    • "norl_" ,
      its not the german government who caused problem, its the player himself, so valve cant do anything about it
    • Linus "Tjernobylbarnet" Staaf ,
      The fact that the player lacks a valid passport is beyond the help of Valve. This one really is on iG and Super.
      • Bear "TheBearEmperor" God ,
        yeah that makes sense, this is one on iG themselves, oh well. very sad to hear team dropping out before the first majors though
        • t "toriphy" tt ,
          That doesn't make sense either.I mean in China get a passport is as ez as fuck.How could he fail to make it?
          • Bear "TheBearEmperor" God ,
            i looked at the comment below posted by oldburden, according to him Super faked his identity to the other province in order to get advantage in college entrance exam and now his identity belong to nowhere. That's why he can't get a passport
  • yao "wahahahaha" yao ,
