Antonio “cyx” Daniloski was one of the mousesports players who reportedly missed their flight to Shanghai for the Intel Extreme Masters tournament. On the drive back from the airport, Daniloski had a tire failure, resulting in an accident that claimed his life.
Taken from Mousesports.com:
Today we must say goodbye to our beloved friend and player, Antonio “cyx” Daniloski. Toni had a car accident on his way back from Frankfurt airport and passed away of the consequences.
Starting point was a missed flight from Frankfurt to Shanghai (China), which our entire Counter-Strike 1.6 team was suspected to take. Unfortunately, Antonio “cyx” Daniloski missed the flight and received another flight on Thursday morning.
On his way back from the airport, he had a car accident due to a tire failure and passed away of the consequences.
Our thoughts at this difficult time for us go to Tonis family, relatives and friends. We mourn a friend and player who was always loved by everyone in our mousesports team and the whole gaming community and because of his commitment and engagement he was one of the most important and famous personalities of all time in mousesports.
Our Counter-Strike 1.6 team is already on their way back to Germany and we’ve canceled our presence and Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge Shanghai.
