Ultimate” tournaments, but then everything went wrong. «Kola» had to go to the toilet and of course he doesn't just leave his controller lying around unattended, so he took it to the toilet with him. But somehow, «Kola» was not thinking about it and the controller fell from his hand and flew straight into the bowl.

His friend and e-sportsman Ethan «Peanut» Mastermander, who was with him was on the toilet, described the situation as follows: «I was washing my hands when I got a Plup -Heard the noise from his toilet cubicle and he screamed Noooo . » The two professional gamers tried to save the controller with a thorough cleaning action, but the thing was water damaged.
