TACO Addresses ESL One Belo Horizonte Crowd About Chanting Calls
According to a post on Reddit, Epitacio "TACO" de Melo addressed the ESL One Belo Horizonte crowd and urged them to stop chanting useful information for SK Gaming.
Apparently, during the event, TACO spoke to the crowd when the stream was offline and told them to stop helping the Brazilian team SK Gaming by chanting positions. He was asked, per ESL request, to speak to the crowd and try to get them to stop.
ESL One Belo Horizonte is ESL's first big event in Brazil and has had one of the loudest crowd ever seen at a CS:GO event. As expected, the crowd is majorly fans of the home team SK and would like to see SK do well on home soil.
Players have also had other complaints about the crowd.
Agreed Brazil has the loudest crowd, communicating with each other on stage was tough and it was hard to hear footsteps and pulling pins— Tyler Latham (@C9Skadoodle) 15 июня 2018 г.
Previously, soundproof booths have been used for the players to play in so there would be no interference from the announcers or crowd on the players. These booths have been used at events such as the Starseries events or the PGL Major Krakow event last year. However, many event organizers feel that these booths separate the players from the crowd too much and prefer to use open areas where the players will play.
