As the time flies quickly and the teams are expected to be in Seattle by the end of this week, LGD is now forced to attend The International 6 with their coach and substitute player at the same time, Wang 'Banana' Jiao.
After two repeated US visa denials for their support player Xue 'September' Zhichuan, LGD Gaming made a post earlier this month on their Weibo page stating that “education history issues, of September” are causing trouble in getting him set for Seattle. At that time LGD also announced that they asked Perfect World and Valve to assist them with the third attempt. Unfortunately, last week September announced the third application was also denied and now an official announcement made by LGD Gaming earlier today, confirms that September will not be able to play at his first International as the fourth visa application was also rejected.
Extracts form LGD’s weibo post:
The International 4 Champion, Wang 'Banana' Jiao joined LGD in a coach position after the disastrous run of all the Chinese teams at the Shanghai Major, and has managed to get the team on a great recovery path, with LGD being one of the six teams that got directly invited at this year’s International.
