If you think eSports is just a load of nerds sat around killing each other digitally, then do we have a spicy story for you. It’s currently the Counter Strike: Global Offensive Rio Major tournament, and everyone involved is quartered in shared accommodation. Former player Matthew ‘Sadokist’ Trivett opened things as host.
But then he disappeared from coverage, and it turned out that due to an alleged violent incident at the house, which took place in this odd thing called the real world, he’d been fired and sent out of the country on the next flight.
All CS:GO are saying about this is “We can confirm that an incident took place last night involving Sadokist. As a result of this, Anders has stepped in to commentate for the remainder of the tournament. We have no further comments and would like the focus to remain on the competition.”
However reports say that Trivett got into a confrontation with people working at the house, then into a “scuffle” and then smashed a TV. Police had to be called. Trivett has form, as he was forced out of a team for being racist and asking someone to commit suicide.
Which is much more interesting than CS: GO tournaments. Give us Tarkov instead. PubG if wet.
