FaZe analyst on Benched Heroes visa issues: "Could their situation change if they had an organization? I think it could"

Benched Heroes qualified for EU RMR, but failed to secure visas for two players: Buğra "Calyx" Arkın and Aunkere. Per RMR rules, the teams are only allowed to have one stand-in. Since ESL forbid teams to have extra replacements in case of visa issues, BH had to withdraw and was replaced by Illuminar Gaming.

The stack got together to play in RMR in August. Even after qualifying for RMR, they failed to secure a deal with an organization. According to Aunkere, there were at least two of them interested in the roster, but it seems that they couldn't reach an agreement with players.

Big Russian streamer Buster also offered to sign them, but it seems that Benched Heroes were asking for too much money. He claimed that for $5k salary he would sign them for at least this Major cycle, but they were asking for more.

Apparently, smooya and Aunkere stack wanted to invite Boombl4, but he declined because "he was recording a track"
