Players have been voicing their opinion against IEM Katowice publicly. We recently reported on tarik blasting the organisers for being unprofessional and having long delays at the event.
It's all about the endurance today. Wasted 2 hours on tech issues and we have to sit on our places and not talk at all or they take prize %s

Kjaerbye also has come out against the delays at the event. This is almost like going back to 2015 when every esports event used to have loads of delays and pauses. This would throw the schedule for the tournaments beyond repair and we have seen tournaments formats change based on these delays.
