The IEM Shanghai tournament might not see the biggest teams participating, but it is an important stop for ESL. Shanghai and in turn China forms one of the crucial aspects for any tournament, esport or organizer. The numbers coming out of China are simply too big to ignore and these numbers could secure the potential for future investments. At the upcoming tournament, Bobosaur will be standing in for B.O.O.T.d[S] in the tournament.
Bobosaur will be replacing Wynter as he will be unable to play at the tournament due to visa issues.
Due to visa issues I am not going to attend the IEM Shanghai ???? Bobosaur will stand-in for me for a while until I solve it. And big thx to the org and my teammates giving me some time-off✌????cya
