  • Shubham "akidos_" Bharadwaj ,
    Why is there no SUB used deduction for NIP? They used Liquid player for whole tournament. They should get a reduction in points. As per valve "Any team that plays the LAN portion of a tournament with a sub will incur a 40% penalty on points earned from that tournament"
    • Cristy "Pandoradota2" Ramadani ,
      On November 5th PPD tweeted that NiP will not incur any penalty for using a stand in during the Kuala Lumpur Major. https://twitter.com/Peterpandam/status/1059564273997889536 Most likely it is because it had nothing to do with them not securing it in time or various reasons but because the country refuses anyone with an Israeli passport and they had no choice due to the discrimination factor
    • Rexonial "Dancingwar" Bebb ,
      Apparently our gov doesn't want anything to do with the Israelite. It's not NIP that's in the wrong here so I think Valve considered that to be the case. It's a pretty sad case.
  • "visionz821" ,
    Has Valve confirmed the points from the CQ Major??? It seems quite unfair that NIP get full point when using a sub in MC because 33 couldnt make it due to visa issues, and then Liquid gets points deducted for using Shadow as a sub when miracle had his visa denied on similar basis.... Guess u need to make a fuss and then valve won't deny points.........

      Team Liquid's official statement was that it was due to personal reason and not visa (he could have had some visa issues but perhaps also could have been resolved etc) so they were penalized. :/
