Esport News – ECS S8 stream was suspended as police investigated suspicious package


The Esports Championship Series Season Eight was on hold as the Santa Monica Police Department investigated a suspicious package near the ECS studio.

The stream was stopped in the middle of the Liquid vs. eUnited series. While the teams continued to play out the series, FACEIT staff left the building in light of the threat.

The stream was back online via a remote observer, but commentary was not available due to the circumstances.

We’ll provide an update as we have it.

James Bardolph, CS:GO caster and vice-president of FACEIT, tweeted that the ECS staff had to “evacuate the building”, with the possibility of “a bomb on the promenade” right outside their Santa Monica office.

So indeed we had to evacuate the building as there is potentially a bomb on the promenade immediately outside our office, fingers crossed nobody gets injured.

The SMPD dispatched a bomb squad to the location and had placed the Special Enforcement Bureau of the LASD on standby.
