Fenerbahçe mid laner Kim “Frozen” Tae-il wrote that Kang “Move” Min-su could not play with the team at worlds because of problems attaining a visa to get into China. Move joined Fenerbahçe before the summer split of the Turkish Champions League to replace Lee “Reach” Joo-won after a brief stint with another Turkish team, Dark Passage. Fenerbahçe finished first during the regular season of the summer split and won the playoffs to qualify for worlds.
Crash previously played for Longzhu Gaming alongside Frozen last year before Frozen joined Fenerbahçe in December. Crash parted ways with Longzhu in May and joined Vici Gaming in China.
Fenerbahçe drew into Group D of the play-in with Hong Kong Attitude from the LMS and Rampage from Japan and resides at the top of the group with a record of 2-0. The play-in stage will continue Tuesday, as Fenerbahçe will face the same two opponents again, with the top two teams of the group qualifying for the knockout stage for a chance to qualify for the group stage of worlds.
