Reapered said an interview with Inven Global last week that there is a “high chance” he wouldn’t be able to travel with the team to China for the worlds play-in stage because he didn’t have a proper visa (though he later clarified and seemed confident the problem would be resolved). Cloud9 CEO Jack Etienne confirmed Monday night Reapered would indeed be able to go to worlds with his team.
