Benched Heroes Aunkere and Calyx visas for RMR got rejected


Evgeniy "Aunkere" Karyat announced that his and Buğra "Calyx" Arkın visa application got rejected ahead of European RMR tournament. Benched Heroes player posted the news in his Telegram channel.

The Russian player said that French embassy rejected his application because they don't trust that he will return to Russia. Calyx was rejected because "they" didn't believe that he is going to compete at the tournament. It's unclear which country gave him this answer.

This is the message: "Your French visa application is rejected, because Europe isn't sure that you will return back to Russia after visa expiration". What is this reason? How the fuck can I even prove to them that I will return to my home? <...> Calyx application was rejected because they didn't believe that he is going to the tournament. <...> [Chat: don't get upset about it, man] We had our first match against NAVI, how can I not get upset about it? Of course I'm upset. But I understand that I need to do something, I can't fucking give up. I will look into other options. <...> I still have a small chance to get to the tournament.

Benched Heroes listed Thomas "Thomas" Utting as a substitute. But if two team members will not be able to attend to the tournament, the team might miss on the RMR.

European RMR tournament for Rio Major is held in Malta on October 4-9. 32 teams will fight for 16 slots at the Major. Benched Heroes got in the group B. Among their opponents are Natus Vincere, Vitality, OG, ENCE.
