Lucas “Santorin” Larsen signed with Team Liquid for the 2020 season however recently encountered a substantial hurdle. To clarify, Liquid goes into the upcoming LCS Lock-In Competition without its new Jungler. “Visa hold-ups” contributed to Santorin’s inability to join the rest of his group for the very first stage of the LCS this year. Regrettably, it’s not an unknown song and dance for Group Liquid.

A rocky initial step

Likewise, Liquid encountered visa problems with a new Jungler in the 2020 season of League of Legends. Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen stopped working to sign up with LIquid in the 2020 Spring Split since of visa issues. The issue equated into among the most awful seasons for Group Liquid considering that it reformed in 2018. The team in some way handled to receive Worlds 2020 regardless of the rocky start of the season.

Santorin’s visa hiccup possibly sets back Team Liquid in the new format of the LCS. The Danish Jungler started playing in the NA region in 2014 however still runs into possibly season-ending problems. Santorin aims to join up with his group for the second week of the LCS Lock-In however the problem is completely out of his hands.

It’s baffling that visa issues continue to afflict modern-day esports leagues. Esports grew to among the most recognized and profitable industries in sporting but its gamers are still not safe from such troubles.

Team Liquid Academy’s Jonathan “Armao” Armao steps up to the plate as Santorin’s replacement for the Lock-In. Hopefully, Santorin settles his visa problems and has fun with his team. The LCS Lock-In begins on Friday, January 15th.
