Diego "tempo" Gomez sat down with dare, shane, snav, and eptima from Timbermen (ex-Depth Esports) to hear their side of the story with everything that has gone down since February 8th, 2021. Here is their raw and uncut response to what has unfolded.


While the story starts before (long before) the Team Liquid superstar's entrance, it really gained momentum and started to cause the dominoes to fall when EliGe tweeted out the infamous pastebin link. While people had been reporting issues with the Timbermen squad and it was starting to gain more traction from the community as a whole, and got another spark from sin's tweet, EliGe issued the ultimate gut-punch.

EliGe's tweets

What was initially a 1-week ban from FACEIT soon after became a permanent ban from the admins, due to "excessive use of profanity towards the community". CS Twitter quickly picked up the torches and spears to embark on the Timbermen squad after this unfolded.


We felt there was a need to hear from the group of players on the Timbermen squad after all the hate was coming their way. For better or worse, we wanted to hear what they had to say. Uncensored and uncut, word-for-word, what they wanted to let the community know about themselves and the situation.

Counter Nature's disclaimer at the beginning of the video should be clear and evident: We do not condone racism, homophobia, xenophobia, or any inappropriate hatred and behavior within the CS community. We let them talk and we will let the community hear what they had to say.
