Virtus.pro’s trial carry player Igor “iLTW” Filatov got caught on stream throwing despicable insults to Steve “Xcalibur” Ye during a public ranked game that was going south.
After a couple of mistakes and easy kills given to the opposite team, iLTW went on insulting his teammate Xcalibur in the voice chat. “I f**k your mother, Xcalibur” he yelled when Xcalibur was trying to explain to him that he saw the enemy on the minimap and advised the team not to run into them. “I f**k your mother so hard,” ILTw continued to scream.” “Shut the f**k up you son of a bitch, piece of shit, son of a whore,” he added while another teammate could be heard laughing. iLTW ended his raging burst by calling Excalibur a streamer, implying that he is not a professional player.
iLTW refused to continue to play the game and destroyed his items, a gesture rather popular among toxic players. Unfortunately, his behaviour takes a hit on Virtus.pro’s image and their sponsors as well. During the game, iLTW, was playing under his official tag and with the Parimatch sponsor tag.
While he never released any statement or any form of apology to the fans or to Excalibur, Virtus.pro posted the following on Twitter:
“We want to apologize to Xcalibur and all the folks in the community for the recent iLTW’s behaviour in a pub game. We in no way tolerate toxicity. The player will be fined and we will take appropriate actions to prevent such things from happening again.”
iLTW joined Virtus.pro on a trial basis at the beginning of April 2020 and became the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 – Online: Europe & CIS Champion with them, placed fourth in the WePlay! Pushka League Season 1: Division 1 and OGA Dota PIT Online and second in the Epic Prime League Season 1.
