Grayfox Esports' Rite2Ace and Others Speak on Buntz Situation at the Skyesports Masters 2024: Indian Qualifier

 

The initial call-out on the situation came from rite2Ace from Grayfox Esports after their game against Macros Gaming at the Upper Bracket Quarterfinals of Skyesports Masters 2024: Indian Qualifier, where the Grayfox player stated Buntz had a completely different playstyle and frag potential compared to his regular days. Moreover, Buntz had a poor performance in the rest of his games during the Skyesports Grandslam, which happened in early March.

 

Grayfox Esports also asked the Skyesports admins to look into this situation and asked Buntz to play with a face or body cam. 

 

Shiva Nandy, the founder of Skyesports later addressed the situation about Buntz by sharing the measures taken by the administration to the fans. In his tweet he added that the mandatory rule of playing with a body cam did not apply to the player, as he was playing at a cafe with two of his other teammates.

 

While this was a measure taken by Skyesports, Grayfox, along with the rest of the community were not happy with the situation. Fast forward to March 31, 2024, Tejas "rite2Ace" Sawant posted another tweet, sharing his disappointment in the Skyesports administration, as they failed to address the situation about Buntz. He stated:

 

"Sorry to say, but CS2 India is in the wrong hands if a TO like @skyesportsintl can't tell the difference between two players' gameplay in their sky sports masters India closed qualifiers."

 

 

Many popular faces from the community like Thour also added to this post by calling out Skyesports' poor management style for the tournament.

 

Shiva Nandy replied to the tweet, stating:

 

"CS2 in India is not a controlled ecosystem, anyone can execute CS2 tournaments. It’s not in our hand, I can understand your frustrations but we can’t help much about it until we can solid evidence. At Skyesports, we are committed to strengthening our approach towards upholding the integrity of our esports ecosystem. We understand the importance of maintaining ethical standards and ensuring fairness for all participants. Moving forward, we will redouble our efforts to implement robust measures for preventing and addressing misconduct, while also safeguarding the rights of individuals involved."

 

So far, the allegations against Buntz are still clean, as Skyesports has not gathered any solid evidence against the player regarding sharing his CS2 account with anyone. As for his performance, it is yet to be seen what the administration decides.
