Meaning 100 Thieves refused to play in the server that the VCT tournament organizer selected. Instead, they deliberately disrupted the match which caused the organizers to delay the overall match by 1 hour.

During the delay, 100T’s VALORANT coach “FrosT” talked to the tournament organizer via discord and showcased unprofessional behavior. At one point during the exchange, FrosT threatened the tournament organizer with 100T’s social media presence.
