Team Heretics to compete online during VCT Kickoff EMEA

Will Heretics online have the same impact as offline?

The VCT Kickoff EMEA starts on February 20 and will continue for around 11 days ending on March 1. The inaugural league of the 2024 season takes place at the Riot Games Arena in Berlin, where eleven of the best EMEA teams will compete in person. However, due to unavoidable circumstances, Riot Games has granted Team Heretics an exemption on in-person attendance. Team Heretics will play online till the visa issues for one of their players find a resolution.
