Virtus.pro terminated the contract with Pure player from
Ivan “Pure” Moskalenko is no longer a player of the Virtus.pro e -sports team. Information about this appeared on the official website of the organization.
The reason for the break in the contract is that during the match in Dota 2, the Mind Games on the Mind Games team drew Litera Z on the mini-card. For this, the tournament organizers disqualified Virtus.pro, although the rest of the team considered this decision too strict and biased. In their opinion, it was enough to remove only the offender, and not punish the whole team.
We are shocked by the severity of the punishment from Valve. Knowing the approach of the publisher to the use of disciplinary sanctions on numerous situations from the past, the decision to disqualify the entire team from the DPC tournament for drawing at the minicart from one player is a real precedent.
