Last month, Zellsis subtweeted eUnited CS:GO because three former Swole Patrol players stole an IEM Sydney qualifier spot from Braxton "swag" Pierce and Sam "s0m" Oh in February when they signed with eUnited. Anthony "vanity" Malaspina, Victor "food" Wong, and Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado received all of the flak for abandoning their former teammates on Swole Patrol.

Following ESL's update regarding the North American qualifier spot, which went to eUnited instead of Swole Patrol, vanity tweeted, "Yoink, my spot now." Then Zellsis responded in a quoted tweet saying, "Imagine 24 hours [from NA] just to go home the next day" with a slanted face. The replies to that tweet were then flooded with funny reaction GIFs from fellow pro players.
Now at IEM Sydney, eUnited were knocked out in the first day of group stage competition. In group A, the North Americans fell on Nuke 13-16 to Ninjas in Pyjamas and later again vs. MVP PK in a best-of-three. That series was a swift 2-0 sweep by the South Koreans, with the scorelines being 16-9 on Train and 19-17 on Overpass.
As Zellsis predicted, eUnited flew 24 hours across the Pacific Ocean to Australia just to fly home the next day. Even though Zellsis wasn't on Swole Patrol at the time of the qualifier, he defended his teammate swag with dignity—and karma was rightfully served to eUnited.
