what else do you think they should do? play with covid in front of crowd? every single sports league/franchise league, sporting events, even Esports events have almost the same approach to this.

so much for making the right decision in order to keep the event alive. imagine one guy getting covid being around all the others and it turns out to be a superspreader event and the entire thing gets ruled off because of one fucking guy. man use some brain

if they dont check covid (which they can do bcz Sweden has no restrictions) no one will notice nothing and we have a smooth major , so much overprotection for a flu.

Do you believe the vaccine works, if so then what are you afraid of, and why penalise a team for something that is completely out of people's hands?
2021-10-21 15:04
6 replies
It is not a penalty, it is a safety precaution. "Do you believe the vaccine works" is about the most fucking ignorant thing you could possibly say. 1. It is not a matter of belief, there is concrete evidence that vaccines work, and the entire scientific community agrees on this. 2. The purpose of the vaccine is to reduce the risk of getting very sick or dying. It does not prevent you from getting the virus, nor does it eliminate the spread of the virus in society. Seriously, how fucking uneducated can some people be?

Vaccines are meant to eradicate disease, and create immunity, as thanks to vaccines some horrible diseases are no longer around, and I never said I didn't believe in vaccines, I put forth a question about the current situation, and not all scientists believe the current vaccines for covid are effective. Its not a prevention, it's a penalty, you get sick you lose, it can't be anymore black and white. Whats the point of having a lan event if you're still this worried?
2021-10-21 18:31

Vaccines are not meant to eradicate diseases. In fact, it is nearly impossible to eradicate diseases, which is why you see cases of the black death still popping up from time to time. A penalty implies intent to punish someone. These rules are in place to keep people safe and prevent the spread of the pandemic, not to punish those who are unfortunate enough to catch it. What's the point of having a lan event? If you are seriously asking that question, you should spend more time actually playing the game and less time on HLTV.

2021-10-21 14:27
but playing from hotel would mean setting everything up for a single player with the danger of having others infected. also in that case they could just play the major online, which defeats the entire purpose. Players or just anybody with covid are to be completely isolated and not touched with a 10 foot pole so yeah its harsh but the only way to avoid huge discussions and stuff if somebody gets infected, which hopefully wont happen.
2021-10-21 14:29
Who says that they don't have a plan B? Literally all this does is secure the right to disqualify in the worst case. PGL will obviously do everything they can to have the players still play

I'm pretty sure team can't be disqualified in the major final or semis

PGL was the worst choice to organize a major. We saw it with Dota 2 this year: awful pre-tournament Bootcamp conditions and apparently no heater in the arena on Saturday (I didn't pay attention the days before). Plus do I have to remember the PGL Krakow 2017 Major? The production was shit.

This is perfectly acceptable. If someone has covid they can't be anywhere near others and their whole team should go into isolation, particularly if it's in the arena stage. Also it says "may", so I'm sure they'll work out a solution if they can and will only be done after several tests etc.

2021-10-21 14:44
The organizers must meet all the conditions they received from the city/arena owner in order to even have event. It's not just that they can decide everything. Even if they wanted them to play from the hotel, the whole hotel would have to be closed, employees would not even be able to move there very much and after that they need sanitize whole hotel.

extremely based, if you are willing to not get vaccinated when you are supposed to travel a lot, be in contact w different people and so on and you get covid, you should get punished the whole its their choice what they do you cant dq them for getting covid is idiotic, they are endangering lives of other people around them and they could make the entire event a complete fiasco if they spread it which they probably will cause they come in contact with many people
2021-10-21 15:23
u think PGL is behind this? no the government has way to much say in this. and the only thing i can make out of this is if one positive team is there, they would have to shutdown the whole event. so its better to DQ them right after the test.

Understandable, plus it does not imply that they will straight out disqualify any positive cases, they are simply leaving this as a "may be" to give them proper right to disqualify if there is no alternative in the worst-case scenario.
