In breaking news, an update on the situation pertaining to Super Smash Bros. Melee player William "Leffen" Hjelte and his permission to enter the United States on a work visa for Team SoloMid has been announced by team founder Andrew "Reginald" Dinh.

Recently Leffen had been tweeting enigmatically referring to his year long withdrawl from performing on American soil and specifically mentioning his potential attendance at The Big House 6.


While it remains to be seen if one of Europe's finest Smash players will be participating in the prestigious US major, the possibility is there for him to attend. With Leffen having his travel troubles solved, it's only a matter of time until we can hear from the Godslayer himself on his situation and his future attendance to Melee tournaments in the United States. The discourse taken between TSM and its members will hopefully set a precedent for how other competitive gaming teams can help players from outside of the United States in performing within the US as the future of competitive gaming develops. You can directly follow Leffen on his twitter @TSM_Leffen and you can catch up on the story here and here.​

It seems the petition worked. It is truly fortunate that it did. Can't wait to see the Godslayer partake in tournaments in the U.S.
Hahahaha do you actually think anybody in US customs has based a decision on an internet petition? "As a government professional, I need all my facts straight. Better consult a fandom."

This seemed like a troll comment at first but thinking about it for a second you're absolutely right...

The petition was made on the White House website and actually got a response from the U.S. government, so it actually did bring attention to the matter, even if it didn't affect the final decision.

Leffen is back! Just waiting for this Cinderella story. But for the future, can someone living in the US do leffen a solid and marry him so he can get citizenship??:)

Hillary had the State Department approve the visa to get the Smash vote and I still wouldn't vote for her. That says something.
