“Mongolz.CS” is the name of the country’s top cyber sport team and the winner of the Asia-Pacific cyber sport championship – “Intel Extreme Masters”, which was held in February in Taipei
As the Asia-Pacific champions, “Mongolz.CS”, have the right to participate internationally and have been invited championships in the USA and Poland. Unfortunately, the US Embassy in Ulaanbaatar turned down the team’s visa requests…..not once, but several times!
Fortunately, Poland has given “Mongolz.CS” visas; they landed in Warsaw earlier today. The Polish competition “IEM Katowice” has a USD 100,000 prize and is being held in the town of that name on 4th March. The team had to travel to Beijing in order to get their visas. There was also some difficulty, but the consular section of the Embassy of Poland in Beijing rushed the visas through. “Mongolz.CS” have posted their gratitude on their facebook account noting: “The Consulate has said that providing your visas in three hours was a unique phenomenon in the history of the Poland Embassy. Therefore, you guys must win the competition!”
