On one of the broadcasts on Twitch, Russian cybersportsman Roman 'RAMZES666' Kushnarev told how he sees the current situation from his side. He spoke about the requirements put forward by the organizers of ESL One Stockholm Major 2022. The latter asked all participants to immediately process visas during the Dota Pro Circuit 2021/2022 Tour 2.
All the teams that played these qualifiers were told in advance to do visas, or you just won't play qualifiers. This is the whole rofl, the whole meme of the situation. Why can't they just plainly check whether they do it or not?
Thus, according to Roman, Mind Games should not have even been admitted to the qualifying round for the Stockholm Major tournament.
Mind Games shouldn't have even been on the qualifier, right? They don't have visas. And all the other teams donated their time - HellRaisers, Puckchamp, us. When qualifications are announced to you in two days, and these two days on CW that you have, that is, you should spend them with maximum benefit.
Kushnarev believes that the disqualification is a well-deserved punishment for the laziness shown by the players:
And it turns out that we, HR and someone else flew to do visas, and these chelas scored}} }} }} .
It is noteworthy that it was the CIS Rejects team, of which RAMZES666 is a member, that was defeated in the decisive match by Mind Games and did not go to ESL One Stockholm Major 2022. Due to visa problems, MG were disqualified from the Stockholm Major championship and received a forfeit defeat in all group stage matches.[break]matches_4kF3oJdEj[break]
