Evil Geniuses will attend ESL One Hamburg with a stand-in, the organization announced. Quinn "CCnC" Callahan will compete in Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan's place at the Dota 2 event.
Due to some unfortunate visa delays, we'll be playing ESL One Hamburg with a stand-in. Thanks to @ccncdota2, who'll be substituting for @SumaaaaiL!— Evil Geniuses (@EvilGeniuses) October 20, 2018

SumaiL will not compete with Evil Geniuses at ESL One Hamburg because of visa problems, the organization revealed. CCnC, a Dota 2 player currently signed with paiN X, will play in SumaiL's place at ESL One Hamburg.
"The last-minute nature of the delay meant that we needed to find a stand-in on short notice; we’d like to thank Quinn and paiN Gaming for making the process a smooth and amicable one," the post read. "CCnC currently plays for pain X, and has previous experience playing for OpTic Gaming and The Dire."
ESL One Hamburg is not a part of this year's Dota Pro Circuit, therefore no DPC points will be awarded to teams. Evil Geniuses' first game with CCnC will take place on Tuesday for the ESL One Hamburg group stage.
