The Copenhagen Games 2012 continues to sizzle long after it has ended, as Epsilon released a statement about some of their player’s accusation of the alleged cheating of the CPH CS:S 2nd placer Team Alternate aTTaX.
As featured in this news article, Epsilon Counter-Strike: Source player gla1ve and some of the Danes posted in a gaming forum some strong words and conspiracy theories regarding Alternate’s seemingly unbelievable finish. Team Epsilon’s manager, Frederik “realition” Byskov opted for a more diplomatic approach, as venting in a public forum wild accusations like these will have some unwanted repercussions in the future.
Epsilon’s Byskov statement:
“The last few days have been what many would call a rollercoaster for us as an organization. Our Source team ended up in a very nice 3rd place finish at Copenhagen Games, but unfortunately that’s not what people will remember Epsilon by the next couple of days.
Sadly a few of our players have behaved in a way, which is in no way acceptable for a professional top team. Even though comments was made on a Danish forum and was never meant for a news post, we can’t stress that such a behavior is appalling.
gla1ve is deeply sorry for his comments and behalf on him, the rest of the team and our organization we would like to send yet another apology towards germans or others, who have been offended by those comments.
Again we can’t stress enough how sorry we are on this matter. We wish Alternate the best of luck in future events and congrats on the 2nd place finish. You guys proved yourself as anything else than onliners.”
It would have been a circus had Alternate aTTaX responded. Good thing some cooler heads prevailed and defused the already controversial situation.
