Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko didn't pass the US visa interview, as announced by his teammate Dzmitry "Fishman" Palishchuk on Telegram. It's unclear who will replace him in Entity Gaming for Arlington Major.
On July 25 Pure mentioned that in case he won't get visa, Enzo "Timado" Gianoli O'Connor will most likely replace him during the tournament. But later he took this statement back, saying that it was all said "for fun".
Back then our sources confirmed TSM.FTX carry as a likely candidate, but after announcing that Moskalenko didn't get his visa, Fishman also commented on these rumors. He said that it's more likely Timado will be playing for Fnatic, but didn't make any certain statements. On July 26 the team was allowed by PGL to participate in the Major with three standins.
Entity is the third team on the last Major of the season with visa issues. Earlier Xtreme Gaming withdrew from the tournament after its carry couldn't get his documents, while Fnatic will attend it with three standins.
PGL Arlington Major will be held on August 4-14. After Xtreme withdrawal, the number of participants went to 17. They will fight for $500k prize pool and the last DPC points of the season.
