CDL Challengers team forced to forfeit after using inappropriate language at ROKKR Open

Minnesota ROKKR Open

As teams compete in the Minnesota ROKKR $75K Challengers Open, a European squad, Team Invicibles, were forced to forfeit a map in their series after shouting inappropriate language.

The Minnesota ROKKR $75k Challengers Open not only signifies the return of Call of Duty in-person events, but it marks the first Challengers Open LAN since March of 2020.

Spanning a total of three days, April 1 through April 3, non-franchised teams have the opportunity to fight through a grueling open bracket that oftentimes leads to late nights and early mornings. With everything riding on being all to be able to participate in the CDL Pro-AM Classic in May.

One of these was a European team, Team Invincibles, who in their match against another squad, Team WaR, were forced to forfeit a map in their series.

This was later corroborated by infamous esports’ coach ‘Chitasaz_’ on Twitter, where he gave a bit more detail as to what Team Invincibles were saying during the game that led to the forfeit.

“Rafi’s team [Invincibles] won map 1 and got forfeited map 2 for saying ‘r**ped’ when they killed someone.”

The map forfeit ended up contributing to their eventual elimination from the Challengers bracket as they fell to Team WaR 3-1. At the time of writing this, there has been no word from the CDL on possible further punishment.
