Team One (GS #27) and 100 Thieves (GS #11) went face to face lately for Intel Extreme Masters New York lately, and the end result used to be a carefully fought (2-0) for 100 Thieves throughout two maps.
Shortly after the development concluded, on the other hand, some lawsuits started to rise up on Twitter at once against ESL admins from Team One in regards to the starting of the fit.
Team One states that they had been within the required Discord server smartly earlier than the start of the fit, but had been by no means reached out to through ESL admins who as a substitute allegedly consulted handiest with 100 Thieves referring to maps and servers; the admins had been allegedly mindful that Team One used to be looking ahead to information.
Team One handiest gained the awareness that the development used to be starting with the server knowledge.
Resumo: jogamo mapas que não esperavamos, pq foram vetos aleatorios, segue o baile.

The CEO of Team One defined this a lot within the grievance against ESL, but some lovers had been taking it a bit of farther and portray 100 Thieves as complicit within the tournament, profiting from the oversight (in a different way) that led to 100 Thieves netting a bonus in map pick out.
It’s value declaring that if the allegations are correct, it’s a bit of of a large deal making an allowance for that IEMNY is a large tournament with groups from in all places the arena taking part in, and map choice and technique is a foundational section inside staff ways, akin to Team Mythic being indomitable on Vertigo; thus, different groups all the time ban Vertigo from concern.
If a staff didn’t give you the chance to make a decision their maps, regardless of being within the as it should be known Discord server to obtain communications from the ESL-sanctioned admins, shall we really well haven’t begun every other scandal on our palms that ESL will wish to make a decision the way to continue with.
Being that the fit used to be quite shut with a (2-0) but Team One gaining 14 rounds at the first map (Vertigo) and 12 on the second one (Inferno) than it bears bringing up that it’s believable that no longer having a map selection skewed the leads to choose of 100 Thieves, as admins had been allegedly placing out with them previous to the start of the fit.
At this second, there were no statements coming forth from any events that may most probably have a hand within the effects right here: Valve, ESL, CSPPA, and ESIC have all remained silent to this point in regards to the allegations and accusations, however a choice will wish to be reached from the accountable events quicker somewhat than later: the crowd level will likely be last on Tuesday and quarter-finals start on Thursday.
If Team One must replay the fit (they these days grasp one win and two losses in staff play) than it must occur earlier than the quarter-finals.
