Here is a lesson that we should all take to heart: Smack talk is one thing, actual death threats are entirely another.
The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene is still dealing with the fallout of a death threat made a few weeks ago at a tournament. The situation arose when one team, The Immortals, arrived late at the tournament and sparked widespread rumors that they were partying too hard the night previous.
When one player publicly accused the team of this, Immortals team member Vito “Kng” Giuseppe tweeted to him, “You’ll prove it, or I’ll kill you!” Reportedly, Giuseppe then tried to go find the accuser and had to be restrained.
The Immortals decided to deal with this internally, scheduling a meeting with Giuseppe to go over his actions. When he didn’t show up, the team decided to suspend him and then, shortly after, let him go entirely.
