What Happened At The Upthrust Esports Diwali Battle?

 

On the final day of the LAN, Team XSpark accused Upthrust Esports of not paying attention to their request for rehosting the match when their player was disconnected from the lobby due to network issues. In a story posted by Sarang, who is a part of the Scout-owned team, he alleged that the management didn't listen to the network issue problem that they faced because of the internet facility provided by Upthrust Esports for Diwali Battle Season 2. Sarang's story read: 

 

In the second match, Dreamss got disconnected and we asked for a rehost on the plane path itself. The management didn't rehost the match and in fact blamed the other three players for taking fights... We will still continue to play for the integrity of Esports but all in all worst LAN experience.  

 

After hearing their side of the story, and trying to understand why the team was not interested in performing at the event, a lot of people asked Scout what had happened and why it happened. To this, he replied saying:

 

I also don't know what happened to the team, I am also just a spectator right now, I will have a word with them later on and try to understand why they underperformed at the LAN.   

 

Responding to the whole controversy, Kartik Sabherwal from Upthrust Esports uploaded a story saying that he had a word with Team XSpark's management and explained the whole situation. He further added that one of the players was being overly aggressive and talked in inappropriate language with Upthrust's management, which he feels is not the correct approach to a situation. 

 

In addition to that, he also said that since Team XSpark wanted to walk out of the event, they were also given that option and the team took it. However, once the matter was resolved, the team was welcomed back into the remainder of the games. Even after this resolution was provided to the team, they could not regain their original performance and finished last on the leaderboard with 61 overall points.
