After finding out about Virtus.Pro carry getting banned by Valve and PGL, Cr1t shared his happiness for the news.
Although they were fellow competitors and professionals, Cr1t spared no sympathy for the new carry of Virtus.Pro. Koma, the young new carry of the Russian team, got permanently banned for account sharing.
Cr1t immediately agreed with the ban during the stream, and looked notably happy with it.
“What do I think of the ban of VP carry? I think it’s great,” Cr1t told enthusiastically.
“Account sharing, smurfs, account buying, all sort of secondary accounts, get them the f**k out of Dota.”
It would seem the Shopify Rebellion’s soft support was focused on the smurfing aspect of the bans.
Multiple professional players and personalities had been voicing their concerns about smurfs as well. Streamers such as Qojqva and Gorgc had been well-known to air out their displeasure about it as well.
However, Valve had only been recently stepping up its efforts to identify and solve the problems.
Koma was a part of multiple players getting banned permanently by both Valve and PGL. They were suspected of account sharing, illegally playing under different accounts for victories against lesser teams.
There were also allegations on how the players also bet on themselves since they knew their advantages during games.
