Once you gotta go, you actually gotta go. I simply want that esports tournaments felt the identical about letting their opponents use the bathroom. Professional participant Oliver “Skiter” Lepko peed in a bottle throughout an ongoing DOTA 2 event, citing the organizers’ guidelines in opposition to going to the bathroom throughout a match. Right here’s {a photograph} of the pee bottle to your…uhhh, enjoyment?

DPC 2023 WEU Winter Tour Division 1 is a DOTA 2 event organized by the Romanian esports firm PGL. Eight European groups compete in opposition to one another from January 9 to 29 for a prize pool of $200,000. However that’s not what you’re excited by. You wish to know why knowledgeable gamer was peeing in a bottle like he’s an Amazon supply driver.

Lepko advised Jake Fortunate that he would have incurred a degree 2 draft penalty (which implies groups are delayed in selecting their heroes) if he opted to go to the lavatory, which was allegedly in opposition to the foundations. Somewhat than put his workforce at an obstacle or wait out the 40 minutes of a regular DOTA 2 match, Lepko took a bottle and peed in entrance of his teammates. I can’t resolve if I ought to commend him for being a workforce participant, or if he ought to have simply taken the penalty. He pressured his harmless teammates to see his junk, which couldn’t have been enjoyable for anybody concerned. Kotaku reached out to PGL to ask how limitless toilet breaks would have an effect on the equity of the event, however didn’t obtain a response by the point of publication. Lepko’s workforce had however managed to win three out of 4 matches throughout the event.

The strangeness of the story doesn’t cease there. Somewhat than apologizing and telling opponents that they might use the bathroom as a lot as they wished, PGL allegedly advised Lepko to “make clear [his] earlier tweet” concerning the pee bottle. “I knew the rulebook acknowledged no toilet breaks have been allowed,” wrote Lepko. “I’m going [to the] rest room earlier than each sport, however drank quite a lot of water and needed to go once more as a result of lengthy sport.” Kotaku reached out to Lepko to ask if any of his earlier tournaments had a no-bathroom rule, however didn’t obtain a response..

The incident seems funny on the surface, but it’s deeply fucked up that esports tournaments are just as bad about letting people pee as Amazon is. Rise up, pro gamers. You have nothing to lose but your chains.
