Chaos Esports Club’s star AWPer has been moved to the bench temporarily the player has revealed. Owen “smooya” Butterfield is currently back in the United Kingdom and unable to play for Chaos due to visa troubles caused by the current outbreak of COVID-19.
With his ESTA running out, he was required to conduct an interview as the final part of his already approved P1 visa process. Unfortunately, the interview was canceled as the embassy in the UK is closed. At this time, he is required to wait for another interview date.
He goes on to state that Chaos will be looking for a temporary replacement “until this whole situation is fixed.”
He goes on to state that this was finally “a roster I was happy with,” before saying it’s only a minor setback and that he’ll be back soon.
You can read the TwitLonger in it’s entirety below:
“Currently with all the COVID-19 stuff happening I’ve had to return to the UK since I have no more days left on my ESTA. I have already been approved for my P1 but the problem came when my interview got canceled since the embassy in the UK is closed. So I can’t stay in America and have to wait for a new interview date.
Until this whole situation is fixed I will be moved to the bench for ChaosEC. They will find a replacement soon to help them finish the rest of Flashpoint and any other events they have coming up.
I should be back very soon, it sucks because we just got a roster I was happy with but its just a small set back!
I’ll be back soon boys, hold tight.”
