Danil "Diamondprox" Reshetnikov has spoken out on not being allowed to compete in the EU LCS on Facebook Monday.

From now on I'm not allowed to play LCS in regions I'm not work eligible in. German government doesn't recognize playing...

Due to visa issues, Diamondprox is unable to compete in the third week of the EU LCS.

Diamondprox lamented the situation, saying that competing in the EU LCS wasn't just a job for him.

"For the past three years EU LCS became kind of a third home for me," he said. "It's a place where not only I fight for success, but also a place where I meet a lot of beautiful ppl every time I come.

"I really hope to get the visa in the end and to come back to this place, but if not - I'll miss it a lot."

With his visa issues standing, Diamondprox's plan for the near future is unclear, but he says that he will keep the community updated on his situation.

"In the few following days I'll think a lot about what I want to do while I'm not allowed to participate in EU LCS," he said. "I'll keep you updated and will most likely answer all your questions on my stream after I come back home."

In four games with UoL this season, Diamondprox amassed a 3.5 KDA, but in the 2015 Summer Split, he only had 1.93 KDA over 18 games as part of Gambit Gaming. After Gambit finished in eighth place in the season, they were forced to play in the 2016 Spring promotion, but they mousesports 3-0, earning back their LCS spot, which was later sold to Vitality. In those games, Diamondprox had a massive 10.2 KDA.
