German Players Sintolol and P4wnyhof Disqualified From Global Games
A lot of drama has surrounded the Global Games since it's first announcement, and once again recently when each countries winners were announced. Two days ago Sebastian "Forsen" Fors conceded his spot in the Swedish team due to Mats “P4wnyhof” Kathage making it into the German team, a promise he made to his community back when the event was announced.
Now, not even a week after the winners have been announced Blizzard released a new statement, disqualifying both Thomas “Sintolol” Zimmer and Mats “P4wnyhof” Kathage from participation in the German team due to inappropriate and unsportsmanlike comments.
As of now it's unclear which players will be replacing them.
Quote from BlizzardDear community,
In the light of recent, inappropriate, and unsportsmanlike comments made by Thomas “Sintolol” Zimmer and Mats “P4wnyhof” Kathage, we have decided to rescind their invitation to represent Team Germany in the upcoming Hearthstone Global Games.
We’re in the process of identifying replacement players, and will reach out to them privately.
