Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

After kNg’s outburst after DreamHack Montreal, I was wondering what kind of punishment the team was going to give him. In the end, kNg was removed from the team. The circumstances around it are a bit weird as he played in the second game against CLG on an online qualifier. The weird bit was that Immortals CEO Noah Winston said he shouldn’t have been allowed to play as he was under internal suspension, and kNg then tweeted his removal from the team an hour later.

I’m not sure I understand how kNg was under suspension in the team and social media/CS:GO team itself didn’t stop him from playing, but regardless the kick felt like it was coming anyway. As for who replaces kNg now, I don’t know. The best player in Brazil that’s not on SK/IMT is fnx and they already went down that route. Beyond that, I have no clue.
