TSL_aLive to Replace Strelok at NASL Finals

NASL Grand Finals July 8-10

There’s been a roster change for the NASL grand finals event next weekend. Unfortunately, Strelok was unable to obtain a proper VISA in time, and is therefore ineligible to compete in the US-based event. The NASL attempted multiple avenues to expedite the process, including contacting both Blizzard and the local Congressional Rep in Ontario, CA; but in the end it simply was not meant to be. TSL’s aLive, who managed second place in the Open Tournament, will be taking his seed. Full details from the NASL after the jump:

It is with heavy hearts that we announce today that unfortunately, Strelok was unable to receive a VISA in time to attend the NASL Grand Finals. We have been trying valiantly, along with Strelok for several weeks to get him a VISA faster so he could attend the event. We tried Blizzard and other big corporations to see if they could pressure the embassy to take action faster, we had a letter sent from an Ontario, CA congressman to the embassy on behalf of Strelok. Today however, we were informed that Strelok was unable to change the date of his appointment and can’t get a VISA in time to attend.

Due to this we needed a player to replace Strelok. Our Open Tournament runner up (TSL_aLive) was the first choice. After contacting their team manager, we confirmed aLive’s participation in the NASL Grand Finals, and are happy to announce that he will be attending!
