Russian esports team Virtus.pro was disqualified from the Siege Malta Cyber Series: VII tournament in the Rainbow Six Siege shooter due to the “national origin of the players” after they had already played one match. This was reported in the official channel of the esports team.





“Despite our readiness and the first match having already taken place, today we received an unexpected message about the disqualification of the team. According to the information we received from the administration, the decision was made due to the national origin of the players,” Virtus.pro writes.



Virtus.pro includes Russians Pavel Kosenko (p4sh4), Danila Dontsov (dan-_-), Dmitry Mitrakhovich (always), Artur Ipatov (Sheppard) and Danil Gabov (joystick)

Representatives of Virtus.pro stated that they had already filed a complaint with the French company Ubisoft, which developed the game Rainbow Six Siege. They added that the team's achievements and experience do not allow them to turn a blind eye to open manifestations of discrimination.

The Virtus.pro team was founded in 2003, today it is in the top 10 in the world in terms of prize money won. Russian e-sportsmen have repeatedly become champions of international competitions of the Major category (the most prestigious and cash-rich tournaments) in the games Dota 2 and CS: GO.

Це ж рашкінці. Дискваліфікували мабуть за читерство, а вони плачуть, що їх ущемляют. laughing

Одной рукой мы пишем загнивающий и недружественный запад, другой рукой идем и зарабатываем кеш, это другое, пока не попросили на выход laughing

Я взагалі шокований, два роки війни вони катаються і заробляють гроші у ворожій Європі. Я не в курсі, чи їм дозволяють там російський прапор показувати? хто знає?
