Dota 2 News: Kuku unable to attend WESG
As per recent reports, Kuku “Kuku” Palad once again might not be able to attend a major Dota 2 event.
WESG is set to commence in Chongqing, China, the same city where Kuku was initially banned from playing. Now according to reports coming from WESG itself, it seems that Kuku is yet again being prohibited to play another Chinese event.
Originally, the controversy aroused when Kuku “Kuku” Palad made racial comments against a Chinese team which prompted outrage in the community. While the player was penalized, the response forced stakeholders to use drastic measures.
This resulted in Kuku being banned from the event and his team TnC Predator making an early exit. But this hasn’t seemed to stop as the recent reports claim Kuku would be able to make it to yet another event with TnC.
This time around, the move comes from a decision made by the City government which is taking a strict against against Kuku’s racial slur. Since there isn’t any new that claims otherwise, we can say that TnC’s performance at the event would once again be in jeopardy.
There hasn’t been any information from TnC or Valve in this regards. WESG 2018 is set to start from March 7th with a total of 24 teams fight for the $890,000 USD prize pool.
