Scandalous RKL recently announced the full list of Season 2 participants, but yesterday, bang happened. Petrik (as petr1k spread the word on Twitter who is behind the tournament.) wrote a big tweet where he called on all European teams not to play in this tournament. ENCE and Alliance have already come out in solidarity, refusing to participate.
UPD 12.59: BIG Academy become the third team to refuse to participate in the Russian eSports league. There are rumors that Astralis will also refuse to participate and thus the tournament may even be removed from HLTV due to lack of good teams.
Ukrainian player 🇪🇺 MOUZ – Burmylov also refused to participate in this tournament. Whether his team will play without him is unknown.
The league starts tomorrow. Great tournament, RKL!
