TNC Predator member Carlo "Kuku" Palad is currently in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. The Dota 2 player will not be allowed to compete alongside his teammates at the Chongqing Major after typing the racial slur "ching chong" in the chat during a game.
Valve, the company that owns Dota 2, sanctioned the erring player after several Chinese players flooded their site with complaints and low ratings.
The absence of Palad from the tournament will certainly be felt by the Philippine team. Apart from the suspension, the entire team [TNC Predator] will get a 20% Dota Pro Circuit point penalty.
