Qojqva Explains How BuLba Helped Squash His Beef With RAMZES666
During a recent Twitch live broadcast, Team Liquid's livestreamer Max "qojqva" Bröcker mentioned an interesting story about a feud he had with popular Eastern European player Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev during their encounters in Dota 2 pubs. As described by qojqva, the two players remained aggressive with each other for six months during Dota 2 pubs before Kanishka 'Sam' "BuLba" Sosale, RAMZES666's coach at Evil Geniuses at that point in time, intervened to resolve the dispute. Qojqva stated that RAMZES666's behavior changed after BuLba settled things, something which he found very awkward since the interactions between the two players in the past had been quite tumultuous.
Qojqva talks about his argument with RAMZES666
As is evident, Dota 2 pubs have not only provided great entertainment and action over the years, but also created environments for disagreements between casual players and pro players. It is common for players to impose their opinions during games when they have strong ideas about how the game should be played.
Dota 2 pro players qojqva and RAMZES666 were also caught up in a classic pub dispute. In his livestream, qojqva mentioned that he did not do what RAMZES666 wanted him to do during a pub game and from there, both players began rebuking each other in future meetings.
“Me and Ramzes played some pubs together. I didn’t do what he wanted to and he said, “You are f***ing bad at this game.” I said, “You are so f***ing annoying kid. That was like the first time, second time he changed his name to ‘Qojqva best player EU’ and I changed my name to ‘Ramzes Kushnarev best CIS player.’ We just changed our names and then it kept going for a little bit. I flamed him some more. He flamed me some more.”
The two players continued to argue during games, and qojqva commented that BuLba, who knew that both the players were at odds, stepped in to resolve the matter during the MDL Chendgu Major (November 2019). BuLba brought RAMZES666 to qojqva to apologize and shake hands.
“This was when Ramzes was in EG by the way and then BuLba messaged me one day, he’s like - you and Ramzes have beef or what? And I told him I just think he’s f***ing annoying. He just shut the f*** up. Chengdu Major comes around - after party Chengdu right. Me and Aydin (iNSaNiA) are outside. BuLba comes outside with Ramzes. Ramzes comes up to me and says, “I am sorry for flaming” and tries to shake my hand and I am like - it’s alright man and I shake his hand. Then BuLba gives me like - he’s approving, like his dad, he’s standing behind like - good job Ramzes and then they walk away. (qojqva laughs).”
The incident at the Chengdu Major happened more than two years ago, and qojqva noted that RAMZES666 has been very civil to him since then. “And yeah, ever since then Ramzes has actually been reformed to me, actually reformed. It was so awkward dude. I know this guy flamed the sh** out of me for the last six months,” he said during the livestream.
RAMZES666 has been called out in the past for his hostile behavior in pubs, where he is no stranger to yelling at teammates and other players. Despite publicly apologizing for his toxic behavior in pubs on Twitter in May 2019, he has continued to lash out at players every now and then.
