The Chinese team World Elite had their visa application rejected and is now on the verge of not coming to the CeBIT. French team aAa would be the replacement.
This morning a French eSports website reported, that the Chinese League of Legends team World Elite would not come to the World Championship and be replaced by French team against All authority who were the next eligible team in the Season Ranking.
This is not entirely true. World Elite had indeed their visa application rejected without specific reasoning. Against All Authority was then asked by the ESL if they would want the spot in case World Elite would definitely not come. The French team confirmed that they would should this happen.
At this point in time World Elite has until early tomorrow morning to prove that they will definitely come or make their cancellation final. In this case they would be the second Chinese team that will not travel to Hanover after iG had to cancel earlier this week for the same reason, Visa rejection.
In case against All authority will be replacing World Elite, Group A would have no Asian team anymore, after iG got replaced by ALTERNATE from Germany.
