Quinn’s Provocative Actions Raise Eyebrows
On February 8th, during the series between Gaimin Gladiators and Virtus.pro, Quinn sparked controversy by making derogatory gestures towards the Virtus.pro players. The incident occurred after Gaimin Gladiators won the first game of the series, just before the start of the second game. Quinn’s actions, including flipping off the Virtus.pro players, were captured on camera, leaving viewers surprised.

Dota 2 commentator rkryptic labeled Quinn’s behavior as “Classic Quinn,” while co-host hairy_freak anticipated the inevitable flood of memes stemming from the incident.

Despite Quinn’s antics, the series ultimately ended in a draw, with Virtus.pro securing a respectable result despite their impending elimination from the tournament. Virtus.pro bid farewell to the competition with a 9th-12th place finish, earning $20,000 USD in prize money.

Quinn’s Controversial Past and Playful Nature
Quinn’s behavior during the match isn’t the first time he’s found himself embroiled in controversy. Earlier in the tournament, he was involved in a “no-handshake” drama with Team Liquid’s Neta “33” Shapira. However, Quinn downplayed the incident, stating that it was insignificant, especially considering the format of the series. Team Liquid’s coach, Blitz, also weighed in humorously, suggesting that the team’s aversion to Quinn was nothing out of the ordinary.

It’s important to note that Quinn is known for his playful character, and his actions may have been intended in jest rather than malice. Despite the occasional controversies, Gaimin Gladiators has secured a spot in the playoffs, establishing themselves as a formidable contender alongside Xtreme Gaming and Team Spirit.
