“This vote is nonsense”: players criticised ESL for offering to suspend coaches from matches
Professional CS players:GO spoke out about voting for the suspension of coaches from participating in ESL one: Road to Rio matches. Many of them said that teams without mentors would probably want to interfere with others.
Nikolai device Ridtz noted that the decision on the participation of coaches in matches should be made by the majority opinion. According to DBLTAP and HLTV.org mentors will only be able to help teams during matches if all teams unanimously choose this option.
Nicholas device Ridtz:
“This vote from ESL is complete nonsense. Why aren’t there enough majority votes? Delusion».
Jonathan EliGE Jablonowski said that teams without a coach have no arguments in favor of the participation of mentors in matches. He added that some of these groups have already voted for the removal of assistants from the games.
Jonathan EliGE Jablonowski:
“Why would teams of five players vote for the participation of coaches in matches? The most logical option for such teams is to vote against and prevent their rivals. In this case, there will be no unanimous decision. I guarantee that some teams did just that.”
Fredrik REZ Sterner noted that it will be very difficult to track the implementation of the rule prohibiting the participation of the coach in the match. In this case, everything will come down to the mutual trust of the participants of the competition.
REZ of Fredrik Sterner:
“If the coaches are banned from the server, their participation in the match will be impossible to track, and therefore make sure that everyone follows the rules. Teams will probably find a way around the system. This is a rule based on mutual trust.”
According to Owen smooya Butterfield, with the ban on coaches participating in online League matches, they will not be able to approach LAN tournaments.
Owen smooya Butterfield:
“Everyone is trying to imagine that online has completely replaced LAN. It will be difficult when the coaches are forbidden to speak or even be on the server during the match.”
The vote for the participation of coaches in ESL One: Road to Rio matches was announced on April 21.
