The fuse has been lit again, and the clash between two of the largest esports teams in Spain has re-emerged, in a way that North American sport and in our sector is known as trash talk.
This term is used when two people enter into a discussion and, without resorting to insults and in a polite manner, share an opinion and try to reach a conclusion that is certainly difficult to achieve.
Well, this happened yesterday between Ibai Plains and Goorgotwo of the most passionate people about esports in Spain and who, far from getting along badly and having controversythey had one more brush with KOI and Team Heretics involved.

To contextualize the trash talk, Team Heretics he won 3-0 to KOI in the Crossfire Cup semi-finals of VALORANT, a kind of Iberian Cup or preseason competition that serves to keep up with the competitive rhythm.
Apparently, once the match was over, a couple of Team Heretics content creators, specifically SirMaza and StarWraithrose a Tweet puffing out his chest about the victory of the heretics, with a photo and an “ESTA PA KOI”.
This did not sit well at KOI, as it is considered disrespectful to a team that, in addition to being young, is always respectful of its rivals, just like Heretics; In the end, the opinion of the creators does not represent the club, but it does in a certain way by being linked on social networks.
Arnau Vidal, co-founder and owner of Team Heretics, launched a Tweet ensuring that both content creators had been wrong, but here began the “Ibai vs. Goorgo” that so much is being commented on networks.
In the discussion, both remember some moments in the past in which Ibai has encouraged the pique between the two clubs (which, by the way, is more than necessary and healthy for the sector), something that did not sit well with the owner of KOI.
Did you just look for a clip from 8 months ago for which I apologized to you privately for all the beef that was created at that time? Is it that you can’t do this on the day that a creator dedicated a whole tier to us and then go for a test, man. Then they have you mania.

The conversation lasted a couple of tweets more, with Ibai Llanos assuring that they should have apologized in another way, because if this was done by KOI, it would have been triple; In addition, the Basque concluded with a sarcastic “Viva Heretics”.
Both are friends, they get along well and they are the spearhead of two of the most important organizations in Europe, as they will be in LEC and in the VALORANT VCTso it is a pique reminiscent of the best years of competition in esports in Spain.
Far from controversial, Goorgo also settled by assuring that they would speak on their trip to San Francisco, since both will be in the Worlds 2022 finals, one to cast the world cups with image and the other possibly for business.
