The student community passionate about League of Legends was shocked to see a university specializing in law applying the “law of the jungle” to exclude competitors from the tournament itself.
Last night on 8/5, on the fanpage of the student community of HUTECH university, a post appeared about the QD Gaming (LMHT) team of the school’s eSports club, being eliminated from the tournament called the Icarus League Championship (ILC). ), organized by the ESC UEL Club of the University of Economics and Law.
The reason comes from the fact that the organizer of the tournament suspected the mid laner of the QD Gaming team – Nghiem Truong Phu, who played for a VCSB team – Percent eSports (PE) 4 years ago. QD Gaming gave evidence that their team’s MID was never a member of the PE team for two reasons: No labor contract, not on the list submitted to BTC VCS and most importantly The owner at that time of PE stood to confirm that Nghiem Truong Phu’s official status did not exist.
On the BTC side of ESC UEL Club, they vetoed all these evidences very “artistically” with the argument “200 years of studying law” when they said that Phu had participated in training (practice), as well as being mentioned in the law. a FB post as a reserve member of team PE. So all the arguments QD Gaming gave were not convincing enough – The final verdict was that QD Gaming should be permanently banned from the tournament. Game4V considers this to be a very decisive action, not inferior to the VCSB organizers not long ago applied to the DNS Gaming team.
Not stopping there, to show the “professionalism” and “love of the job” of students who are studying Law. The ILC prize organizer also assigned QD Gaming a “crime” of insulting BTC, after the QD Gaming representative questioned BTC’s experience, as well as thinking ability – Through the way they handled evidence and presented decided to leave the HUTECH university representative team from the tournament.
The matter continued to heat up when today May 9th – Founder and former manager of Percent eSports – Mr. Hoang Phuc Thong confirmed once again the role of player Nghiem Truong Phu in his team. at the time of 2018. He said that Phu was not a member of the team, but only joined the practice to screen out a new mid laner for PE. After he recruited Glory, Phu finished his training and left PE’s gaming house. In our opinion, this is a completely normal process, as is common in all eSports teams. Because not all players will fit into the team’s lineup, it takes a while to practice together to evaluate, then sign the official contract. At this point, that player is officially considered a team member. In the office world or fresh graduates, too, it is very common to go to work, practice internships, not everyone will be signed with a formal contract after the end of the probationary period. So the fact that the organizers of the ILC tournament cited the reason that player Nghiem Truong Phu used to practice in PE, and then permanently banned QD Gaming from the entire tournament system later hosted by UEL, is a meaningful action. suppressing substances, the “law of the jungle” seriously affected the League of Legends student tournament movement in particular, as well as the student eSports community in general.
According to a representative of the QD Gaming team, this is not the first time UEL has intentionally destroyed HUTECH in the framework of a student League of Legends tournament. Not long ago, UEL accused the HUTECH team of having members plowing to remove them from the tournament, but they did not give convincing evidence. So I had to see the HUTECH team take the championship, so this drama Game4V believes that UEL has a full motivation to realize the defeat of QD Gaming.
With an unconvincing argument, the online community is now fiercely criticizing the handling and actions of BTC IEL.
In addition, the representative of QD Gaming also shared: “The only wish is to hope that all tournaments, if it is for the purpose of students, then be really fair for all teams, whether away team or not. home team. Don’t be emotional.”
Based on the evidence posted on the fanpage of the HUTECH student community, we can see that the words, as well as the response of the BTC ILC representative are very unprofessional, showing the superior attitude towards the representatives of the university. team participates in the tournament. The proof is that in a message, the UEL representative used the word: “Don’t need to know, don’t care.” what the HUTECH representative explained. Currently, the fanpage of the tournament BTC is in an inaccessible state, notably this happened after the HUTECH side posted a denunciation. If this comes from the initiative of ILC BTC, then it is really sad for the student community who are passionate about League of Legends, when the tournament they participate in is run by such an irresponsible organizer.
Game4V will continue to report this incident to its readers when there are latest details from both sides. We hope to continue our efforts to bring a “green, clean, beautiful” eSports environment to students who may hold the future of Vietnam’s eSports industry.
