x6tence say no to KODE5
x6tence e-sports club have announced they will not be attending the KODE5 Global Finals in Peru.
The Spanish team had secured a spot at the KODE5 event after winning the Spanish qualifier back in January under the name Ledpc.
However, some months after the qualifier, the company which held the KODE5 license in Spain broke up and told the team they would not be able to pay for their trip to Peru.
The Spanish organiser then got in touch with the KODE5 chiefs to explain the situation and find a way to support the team with their travelling and lodging costs.
With three of the players making a move to x6tence last month, the organisation tried to work something out, but despite their efforts to contact KODE5, they received no answer from the tournament chiefs.
"We want to publicly and officially critize this kind of organisations which provide no security to the competitions they organize and do not help the growth of esports and are an absolute burden to their expansion," an x6tence statement read.
"Finally, given the attitude of the KODE5 organisation, we are officially announcing that x6tence will not participate in any KODE5 event, nor will we collaborate in any way with the aforementioned organisation in the future."
This decision leaves the 2010 KODE5 Global Finals with no European representatives, as Russian side Iron Will have also confirmed they will miss out on the tournament.
