Vici Gaming have decided to fine former player turned coach, rOtk 14.5k USD or 100,000 RMB for making inappropriate comments during a live stream on the 10th of December. The org has been quick to handle the matter after TNC’s lack of professionalism and improper handling of the Kuku incident cost them heavily.
During the stream, rOtk was visibly upset at PSG.LGD who lost their match to Na’Vi at the MegaFon Winter Clash, costing rOtk money. Apparently, he had bet money on the match between the two teams and was not happy with the result as Na’Vi managed to upset the TI8 finalists.
The org has clearly stated, however, that the punishment handed out to him isn’t a result of betting, nor is there any indication of fixing or any other similar behaviour. The fine along with an indefinite ban stopping rOtk from streaming are handed out as a result of improper conduct, foul language and unprofessionalism.
