potter will not be CLG Red's fifth woman in China
Christine "potter" Chi has revealed that she will be unable to compete with CLG Red at the WESG 2018 World Finals due to visa issues.
Guys...I'm unable to attend WESG with the girls because my visa was not approved :( Really bummed about this, was looking forward to this and have been preparing for months. I still believe the girls will do well, they are amazing and I'll be cheering you girls on from home <3— Christine Chi (@omgitspotter) March 9, 2019
The player-turned-analyst was standing-in for the squad due to the tournaments nationality rules, in the place of Canadian Mounira "GooseBreeder" Dobie, who will be in attendance at the event with the Those Damn Canadians mix.
The news comes as a big blow to the female team, as they had looked to be the favorites coming into the tournament after their second place finish at Intel Challenge Katowice.
