European League of Legends players aren't lacking in the North American LCS, with new faces — such as Luka "Perkz" Perković, Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir, and Barney "Alphari" Morris — arriving this year to increase the quota.
Whether they're new to the league or have been playing there for years, a visa to work in the United States is still a must. While the world remains disrupted by the global coronavirus pandemic, applications are taking longer to process and some players have found themselves stranded.
Santorini — Team Liquid's new signing — was one of those who found himself in this situation. The good news is that he received his visa recently, and should now be able to join up with the team.
However, the same can't be said for Broxah. The former Fnatic jungler will stay in North America for a second year, and last year had the same visa issues.
On social media, he doesn't seem very optimistic, believing that he might be stuck in Europe until February. If this is the case, he will likely be replaced by Raymond "Griffin" Griffin or Ryan "Keel" Keel for the time being.
CLG also has a COVID-19 outbreak among their team to contend with. The only good news the org has had is that fellow EU import Finn "Finn" Wiestål is clear of visa issues.
