The team detailed their visa issues in a second tweet, saying that two players had their visa applications rejected, and Summit rules allow for just one sub, meaning they would be unable to play.
Flyby, Shade, our captain and coach all had their visas rejected for the 2nd time this afternoon, and rules only allow for 1 sub— CDEC (@CDECgaming) June 2, 2017
For Xue 'September' Zhichuan this is the latest of multiple frustrating visa issues. After taking 4th place at The Manila Major with LGD, his team was directly invited to The International 2016, but when he was unable to secure a visa in time, he was replaced by Wang 'Banana' Jiao.
CDEC are also the second team to drop out of DOTA Summit 7. Clutch Gamers announced a few days ago that they also had visas applications rejected and would be unable to attend. Neither Clutch Gamers nor Beyond the Summit have announced who will be replacing them.
With ten days left before the start of the tournament, finding a replacement SEA team who already have visas for America could be tough.
