I see both sides.
I imagine the decision to play both events was made on a schedule they agreed with. If the event had gone according to schedule, would they have dropped out? That it didn't go according to the posted schedule means they could do whatever they want. It was a broken premise.
Wow some people are really ignorant and just want to make others look bad.
You know what? It was unfair that the tournament organizers told them that they could play in both tournaments with no issue. It was unfair that bad scheduling led to the team only getting three hours to sleep. It was unfair that they then had to go play without even time to get breakfast (boohoo, btw). Yeah, the tournament was unfair for them. But when life is unfair, people with even a modicum of self worth don't sit in a corner and whine (e.g. TiG), they MAN THE **** UP AND WIN ANYWAYS.
Complaining that two-three hours of sleep is a big deal? ****, people do harder things successfully on two-three hours of sleep every ****ing day. If I were TiG's sponsor, I'd drop the team, not because they did anything unethical, but because having a group of *****es representing my organization isn't a good look.
In fact, you're such a real man, this'll probably piss you off too and you can tell me to go **** myself, right?
Man the **** up, right?
You know what, YOU should apply for TiG! They could probably use a real man like you!
I can see both sides to this.. I don't agree with a team that just drop out after being qualified so that other teams that have the possibility to achieve higher results after BYOC are now having no chance to qualify especially players that flew to DHS12 to play in BYOC like swindlemelonzz, Franzzii, and others.
But then again, I do understand why they did this, winning only 1 game out of 4 matches with 3 games that were a lost, they simply cannot get to Semi Finals or even just slim chance to get there considering the strong teams like FnaticRC, Trademark eSports, Tt eSports, and Blackfade are the tough opponents and would need more energy to win them but with few hours sleep, they probably don't have any more energy to. So might as well just drop out to play in Swedish Championship to try their luck there and get some money out of it, sadly they lost again in the finals. Oh well - 2nd place is better than nothing though so good job!
Next time, I would advice to just stick with one tournament if you can't handle few hours sleep to play. Playing two tournaments simply will require alot of gametimes and not enough sleep because we all know schedule won't work, there's ALWAYS delays and clashes with games being started at the same times
All the best to the TiG though! <3

Tbh in all prior DH events. The HoN tournament have been severly delayed every time. Thats a fact! You just know its gonna happen. Ddid you look at the schedule beforehand? They "planned" one hour per game in total. Incl. bans, picks etc. Already here you know its going to take longer then planned. Its Bo1 and an very important groupstage, teams are going to play their hearts out and try to pull off the win. Not cc 15.
You know your last game should start 01.00 AM and perhaps finish around 02.00 AM. This being HoN and DH, delay is certain. Calculate atleast 2-3 hours delay, always!
Most people were aware of the insane schedueling that would never work but TiG seemed to be in an dreamworld where all the times would be kept.
Imo I understand your decision and it was probably the right one. But I cant help but feel bad for a team like ORGE that would have been able to qualify via the tiebreaker, had you beaten tDM in your last groupstage match.
Next time plan better and man the **** up when the situation becomes difficult. Only advice I can give you!
terrible attitude and sportsmanship. any other team wouldve played it and probably have made the semi finals simply because the excitement of being at dreamhack and drive from winning the BYOC wouldve kept them going. TiG on the otherhand just gave up because they thought the schedue was unfair and felt tired. how do u expect to win "against the best teams in the world" if u "didn't even want to play"??? thats just a huge slap in the face of the other BYOC competitors (aY, MoNo, FiT). pretty big b1tch out. if you guys didnt have the sh1tty attitude and actually manned up you guys would've been in the grand finals.
