kassad criticizes clubs for inattentive attitude to players's mental health
Analyst Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović took it to Twitter to criticize the organizations that force their players to compete in several tournaments in a row, as he believes that in this way esports athletes burn out and this issue must be dealt with.
Orgs that force teams to play multiple events in a row on different continents are doing more harm then good to their players.
Mental health is not a joke. Players are no machines.
After 2 players from top teams came out and said they are feeling “dead”, surely that is a thing that needs to be addressed.
After facing Cloud9 in the IEM Rio 2023 semi-finals, Vitality's IGL Dan "apEX" Madesclaire reported on his lack of energy, stressing that he had played three BO1s and ten BO3s in the last two weeks. A little earlier, FaZe's Russell "Twistzz" Van Dulken also complained about burnout and talked about stress over the past weeks.
