Talon will play Arlington Major with a standin due to visa issues in another hit to SEA attendance


Talon Esports announced it will play on Arlington Major with a standin. Team support Worawit "Q" Mekchai couldn't get US visa, and Kenny "Xepher" Deo from T1 will play instead of him.

The team has 300 DPC points, so to have a chance at qualifying for The International 2022 directly it will need to take at least 3rd place. The currrent lower threshold is 940 points.

Talon isn't the first team from SEA with visa issues for this tournament. Fnatic will attend with three standins, as Raven, Armel, and Jaunuel couldn't get their visas either. There are also rumors that RNG carry Daniel "Ghost" Chan Kok Hong from Malaysia have issues as well, but nothing is confirmed yet. At least BOOM Esports, the third team from SEA DPC, already have the documents in order.

PGL Arlington Major will be held on August 4-14. Xtreme Gaming withdrew from the tournament and won't be replaced, so the number of participants went to 17. They will fight for $500k prize pool and the last DPC points of the season.
