4AM To Play At Its First Tournament

4AM organization was under a lot of fire recently for their lack of professionalism regarding the Eurus-Sylar matter.

  • Chinese organizations Elephant and 4AM was rumored to pick up a strong team in the form of Maybe, fy, Yang, RedPanda and Eurus.
  • Instead of Eurus, Sylar- a veteran of the Chinese Dota 2 scene was announced as the carry of the team on October 1 which shocked everybody. 
  • The next day, Sylar was removed and Eurus was added to the roster. This sparked outrage from the community against the 4AM organization for showing unscrupulous behavior with Sylar. Eurus was not initially added because 4AM allegedly denied paying the transfer fee to Eurus’ former team- Vici Gaming. 

The Sylar-Eurus hot potato and the failed transfer of rOtK was a controversial issue for the 4AM organization but eventually, everything subsided after various people from the competitive scene expressed their opinions and facts regarding the matter.
