Louis, team captain for Box Gaming, a professional PUBG Mobile squad from Vietnam, lost his temper at Pimay for reasons unknown, prompting him to punch him several times in the face, with the moment being captured live on stream.
The org would immediately put out a statement, blaming themselves first and foremost for the lack of management, and citing "great pressure before the new season" as the reason for Louis' aggressive outburst.

"The club absolutely does not encourage this behaviour and there is an internal discipline for Box.Louis, whereby Louis will temporarily leave the position of captain to calmly think and define the right role of a team member," explains the organisation.
Louis himself would apologise to Pimay and Box Gaming fans, as his attitude is not an accurate representation of what the team is striving to become.
"Firstly I really apologize to Pimay. The last situation happened because I couldn't control my mind, which resulted in the unworthy incident. Right after calming down, I realized my mistake. I will check myself, try to compensate as well as compensate for not only Pimay but also our beloved audience."
As PUBG remains a powerhouse esports in Asia, Box Gaming will look to improve on their 4th place earned at the PUBG Mobile World League 2020, which netted them a prize of $40,000.
