A Disturbing Encounter: Snare's Robbery Ordeal
In a tweet that shocked the Dota 2 community, Snare detailed a distressing incident that unfolded as he became the victim of a violent robbery. According to him, he was subjected to physical harm, theft and even forced to take out all the money from his bank at an ATM.
Despite the horrifying nature of the incident, Snare reassured his followers that he managed to escape without suffering severe physical injuries and that he is, for the most part, alive and okay.
Snare’s robbery reminds us of the recent in Lima, Peru. The Costa Rican organization currently participating in the DPC South America 2023 Tour 3: Division I fell victim to a burglary that resulted in the loss of six PCs and five monitors. This theft carries significant financial consequences for the organization and brings attention to the vulnerability of gaming facilities to criminal acts.
