TSM carry Enzo “Timado” Gianoli called out ESL for allegedly sending the eliminated teams from the Berlin Major early.
The 22-year-old carry from Peru revealed such in a now-deleted tweet.
“Not ESL sending teams eliminated home immediately(lose hotel) + charging the rebooking flight when I tell them anything past may 8th. Last place lifestyle wcyd,” said Timado.
The issue sparked a debate within the esports community, with some arguing that it was unfair treatment towards the eliminated teams.

ESL, one of the largest tournament organizers in the esports industry, faced mounting pressure to address the accusations.
TSM recently got booted out of the Berlin Major after losing to Team Aster and PSG.LGD yesterday via sweeps. The twin losses dropped the top-ranked North American squad to 0-2-5.
Aside from TSM, Execration and Invictus Gaming also recently got eliminated in the tourney while Gaimin Gladiators, OG, Tundra Esports, Team Spirit, and Shopify Rebellion have already secured their respective spots in the playoffs.
