ESPN report that SK Gaming Rolls Cup is not allowed to participate in Trick
Kim Kang-yoon, SK Gaming’s main jungler “Trick,” is unlikely to be able to join the team’s “LOL World Championship” schedule. With less than six months left until his passport expires, Kim Kang-yoon has a problem issuing visas to China.
ESPN reported on Kim Kang-yoon’s participation in the 2020 Rolled Cup on Wednesday morning (Korea time). SK Gaming, who finished fifth in the summer regular season of the 2020 LOL European Championship (LEC), joined the playoff losing group with 30 points for “Champion Points.”
They have to pack their bags right away if they lose, but if they beat one more team, including FC Salke 04, which will face off on the 22nd, SK Gaming can win a ticket to the Rolled Cup for the first time in six years since 2014. This is because LEC has been given another ticket to the League of Legends following the cancellation of the “Mid Season Invitational (MSI).” The first to third place in the 2020 LEC Summer playoffs will be headed for the Rolled Cup finals and the fourth place will be headed for the Play-in Stage.
However, SK Gaming and Kim Kang-yoon cannot laugh despite the increased number of LEC tickets. According to ESPN’s report, Kim Kang-yoon hit a snag during Riot Games’ application for a Chinese visa. Currently, Kim Kang-yoon has less than six months left until his Korean passport expires. To apply for a Chinese visa, the remaining passport period must be at least six months. ESPN said, “We are running out of time to renew our passport, so Riot Games announced that Kim Kang-yoon will not be able to play.”
SK Gaming, who is unlikely to be able to join the main Jungler at the 2020 Rolled Cup, plans to use its candidate, “Canny” Mark Behrend. SK Gaming signed a contract with Canny until 2021 on the 4th.
