Yuré Araujo, who works with kNg, announced on Thursday through Twitter that kNg will be able to compete in DreamHack Montreal but might not get there on time.
.@kngvito vai para Montreal para jogar a DreamHack. Provavelmente só chegará a tempo de jogar o segundo jogo. Em seguida, volta pro Brasil.

Araujo explained that kNg will probably be able to fly into Montreal from Brazil in time for Immortals’ second match against Luminosity Gaming. After the tournament, kNg will return to Brazil to continue the process of obtaining a visa for continued competition in the United States.
Immortals coach Rafael “zakk” Fernandes said Wednesday he would temporarily play for kNg while kNg returned to Brazil for a brief time. kNg has been an official member of the Immortals since May after a successful trial period at the 2017 PGL Krakow Major, where the team had an surprising second place finish. Before his trial, he played for Brazilian CS:GO team g3nerationX (with Immortals’ Lucas “steel” Lopes) before moving to Red Reserve.
