IMT should be disqualified from this tourney. Degrades their distinction as world's top 10 team. That's like having adults running around in a children's playground.

so ? SK played at DH summer with 100k prize pool

So ? Were they behaving like adults running around in a children's playground? They had fnatic, gambit, IMT in there. Over here only North is on-the-par with their status. CSGO is having a downward trend due to the monopolization of 'super'' teams in all international events.
