Following yesterday's alleged match-fixing scandal, we have yet another controversy.
After Meta4Pro decided to step away from the DPC qualifiers due to potential match-fixing problems, we have yet another team from the EU Lower Division that won’t be able to participate in the event anymore.
Due to a breach of tournament rules, we are disqualifying team 'burjui' from the #DreamLeague Season 14 DPC EU Lower Division.

According to DreamHack, burjui was disqualified from the event because they broke the tournament rules. In a tweet that was posted a few hours ago, DreamHack said that the team basically provided fake information regarding a positive COVID-19 test. This triggered an investigation, which proved that the document related to the positive COVID-19 test was forged.
The idea behind burjui’s decision to fabricate this document was to use the services of a stand-in player. After DreamHack’s decision, we are yet to see whether Valve will take any action.
Following the disqualification, the Lower Division now consists of six teams. This means that all of them are safe from elimination. However, we are yet to see the teams that will make it to the Upper Division next season.
- Hellbear Smashers
- No Bounty Hunter
- Spider Pigzs
