The Boston Major has been riddled with teams and players being unable to attend the event due to visa issues. After waiting a considerable amount of time for last minute entries, there have been changes made to the existing rosters of certain teams. We have IG.Vitality and LGD.Fy who will be using substitutes in the roster for the Major.

LGD will see End and DDC standing in for Monet and LPC. IG.Vitality will use the services of Burning and Q in place of Super and Dogf1ghts. We can only hope that future events do not run into similar issues. No matter how talented a substitute is, he cannot replace the months of training that a team undergoes. The team chemistry and balance go for a toss. Communication comes in as a major factor in the gameplay which affects the results of the team.
