Last month, controversy broke out between the two sides, which eventually resulted in KRÜ being banned from the South American Discord scrim server. According to Riot's official ruling, personal attacks were made by players of both teams. However, the rules of the Global Competition Policy were broken when keznit made a comment towards Douglas "dgzin" Silva that was "inappropriate for a professional player".

Shortly after the initial news broke, KRÜ stated that they were working on the matter internally to address the issue at hand. A couple days later, the organization came forward and revealed that the issue had been resolved internally. However, keznit eventually pushed back after being sanctioned by his team, claiming that he was not the first individual in the scrim to start an altercation, and that he was being villainized because he was involved in the controversy.

As part of his sanction, keznit will be suspended for a single series in VCT LATAM Challengers, and he will also have his in-game account "periodically reviewed for any indications of toxicity" for the next six months. Additionally, keznit will be required to attend professionalism courses from Riot.
