Team 9 Pandas has received a Level 3 penalty for being late to makeup during media day. This penalty stipulates that they will have a minus 110 seconds to extra time on drafts.
"Sharing the unpleasant news. By the decision of the organizers we have received a level 3 penalty (-110 seconds of bonus time) for being late for makeup on one of the media days.
Although we believe that a level 2 penalty would have been an adequate punishment, this decision was made jointly with Valve and we will not challenge it.
The mood for victory has only increased!"
Roman RAMZES666 Kushnarev noted that this penalty will be in effect in the match against LGD Gaming only on the first map. The club also stated that the decision was made jointly with Valve and will not appeal it.
On October 20 at 16:00 Seattle time, 9 Pandas will play against LGD Gaming in the Upper Bracket of The International 12 playoffs. The winner advances to the top 8, while the loser goes to the Lower Bracket.
