In a shocking turn of events during DreamLeague Season 22, Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov found himself ousted from Tundra Esports just moments before a crucial match against Shopify Rebellion.

The abrupt departure of MinD_ContRoL, who had only recently joined Tundra on January 8, left the Dota 2 community reeling with surprise and speculation.

Minutes before facing Shopify Rebellion, MinD_ContRoL took to social media to reveal his unexpected removal from Tundra’s roster, sending shockwaves through the community.

The timing of his dismissal, coupled with his short tenure with the team, raised eyebrows and fuelled rumours about internal conflicts within Tundra.

To fill the void left by MinD_ContRoL’s departure, Tundra hastily enlisted Vladislav “laise” Lais, a former Natus Vincere member and a highly ranked player, as their new off-laner for the match against Shopify Rebellion.

However, despite the substitution, Tundra’s performance suffered noticeably without their iconic off-laner, resulting in a tied series against their opponents.

Speculation regarding the reasons behind MinD_ContRoL’s removal from the team ran rampant.

The appointment of Ludwig “Zai” Wåhlberg, as Tundra’s general manager on February 23 added fuel to the fire, with fans questioning his potential involvement in the decision.

In an attempt to shed light on the situation, MinD_ContRoL appeared on Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski’s stream to share his side of the story.

He expressed discomfort with the team’s dynamics, particularly the infringement on his agreed-upon role as captain and drafter, as well as his objection to working with certain teammates.

Despite voicing his concerns, MinD_ContRoL felt disregarded by Tundra’s management, leading to a breaking point where he presented the organization with an ultimatum.

However, Tundra deemed his demands “unreasonable” and subsequently suspended him indefinitely, sparking further backlash from the community.

The fallout from MinD_ContRoL’s departure has left Tundra Esports facing criticism over their handling of the situation and calls into question the organization’s integrity.

As the Dota 2 community waits for further developments, the saga serves as a reminder of the complexities and challenges within the competitive gaming landscape.
