Today, the controversial Polish team under the tag PALOMA won ESL Mistrzostwa Polski Autumn 2023, thereby securing a slot at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024. Previously, other professional players had raised complaints about the players in this lineup.

For their victory at ESL Mistrzostwa Polski Autumn 2023, the team received:

  • $6,258
    A direct invite to Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024
    It’s noteworthy that this is the second time they have qualified for this championship through regional qualifiers, but last time at the LAN event, they only won 19 rounds across three played maps.

Previously, the captain of the Monte team, Viktor “sdy” Orudjev, accused these players of cheating, although they were playing under the tag Permitta at the time.
PALOMA Cheaters
sdy stated:

  • olimp
  • moonwalk
  • Flayy
  • kisserek
    However, there’s no 100% proof that they are playing with cheats or anything like that. But if you look at their demos, everything becomes clear, and it’s puzzling why ESL hasn’t banned these players yet.
