This result is making the community extremely angry with BTC’s unprofessional work.
It is no longer uncommon for professional Esports tournaments to suddenly encounter serious problems, however, the way the organizers come up with a new solution is a controversial topic. Typically, recently, a rare situation at the PGC 2023 tournament (PUBG Global Championship 2023) made the community angry.
It is known that a team from Europe named Question Mark (QM) was unjustly eliminated in the final Qualifying round. Specifically, for unknown reasons, when the 10th match took place, QM suddenly lost power, causing all members to lose connection from the game. Worth mentioning is that it was an extremely important game, a prerequisite for QM to compete for the last ticket to stay in this season.
Team QM suddenly “disappeared” from the final qualifying round because of a power outage.
Faced with this rare incident, the organizers would have needed to stop the game to handle the problem and create conditions for QM to continue to compete fairly. But the real answer is no! The match continued as usual without any delay or attempt to fix it. This move made not only QM gamers but the entire community extremely angry. Currently, the whole world is criticizing and booing PGC 2023’s working style and unreasonable rules across large and small forums.
“We were blatantly robbed by Krafton” (QM player ADOUZ1E).
“…The organizers should feel ashamed with such an unprofessional way of handling the situation.”
“They had to leave the tournament empty-handed, while they clearly have a chance to go further in PGC 2023…”
“Why is it that an entire team that lost connection (not their fault) is not considered by the organizers to reorganize the match?…”.
In the end, QM officially missed the chance to get their hands on the 2 million USD prize they always wanted. Meanwhile, the organizers only made a brief announcement without any other explanation, causing the “anger” of the gaming community to become increasingly intense at the present time.
PUBG’s somewhat “irresponsible” announcement confirmed that the controversial match was not postponed due to the tournament’s rules.
