BetBoom recently announced that all the members of its team were successful in securing visas for the United States (US).
This signifies that the team will be able to compete with its full power at The International 12 in Seattle.
With some exceptional performances in recent tournaments, BetBoom looks like one of the strongest teams at the event.

In a recent announcement by BetBoom on Twitter, the team shared that it had already obtained United States (US) visas for every single member of the team, marking a significant milestone in its journey to compete at The International 12 (TI12).

This marks a significant achievement for the team as the visa acquisition process for TI in the US can often be challenging, especially for players from Russia. With the team overcoming its last hurdle, all its members can focus solely on preparing for the most prestigious Dota 2 event of the year. 

The full lineup currently is as follows: 

  • Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko

  • Danil "gpk" Skutin

  • Ivan "Pure" Moskalenko

  • Vitalie "Save-" Melnic

  • Alexander "TORONTOTOKYO" Khertek

Securing Qualification after Bali Major Drama

BetBoom's qualification for TI12 was no easy feat, as the team found themselves on the brink of missing out due to the controversial event that unfolded during the Bali Major 2023. The situation surrounding their offlaner, Pure, disqualified the player from the event while dropping them down to the lower bracket, threatening to derail the team's chances of securing a TI spot.

However, as Quest Esports' failed to secure a top-two finish at the event, this allowed BetBoom to secure its qualification by the skin of its teeth. 

Visa Challenges for TI Competitors

Obtaining US visas for players participating in The International can be a complex and difficult process, especially depending on their country of origin. Many players often end up missing out on participating at TI due to the difficulty of obtaining their visas on time.

For players from Russia, like several members of the BetBoom team, the visa process becomes even more significant, marking an important step in their TI journey. 

The recent announcement by BetBoom means that the team will be appearing at TI12 with full force, and if past performances were any indicator, the team are a strong contender to take the title this year. Fans will be eagerly waiting for similar news from other teams as well, which would signify a TI event where each team is playing at their absolute best.
