In the lower bracket showdown at the Bali Major playoffs, Alexander “TORONTOTOKYO” Khertek from BetBoom Team had words for Azure Ray.
As soon as the game began, Khertek accused Azure Ray of being afraid to face BetBoom’s full roster, questioning their involvement in the disqualification of Ivan “Pure” Moskalenko.
“Why did you guys force admins to disqualify Pure? Are you scared to play against our full roster?”
The disqualification of Pure occurred when he was caught watching another match during BetBoom’s 2-0 victory against Tundra Esports.
The organizers considered this a serious offense, resulting in Pure’s ban from the game and awarding the win to Tundra Esports.
As a result, Tundra Esports advanced to the second round of the upper bracket.
It was alleged that Azure Ray played a role in the decision to disqualify Pure, stating that they would not compete against BetBoom if Pure was allowed to play.
The ongoing game between Azure Ray and BetBoom would determine the elimination of one of the teams from the tournament.
