On May 27, a Facebook user called Ankit Saha shared that his friend, a talented CS:GO player named Sahil “EcheloN-” Doultani, has passed away after 2 years fighting against his disease.

The sad news has quickly spread through the CS:GO community as people feel sorry for the cruel fate of the guy. Many players even went to his Steam profile and leave kind words there wishing him to rest in peace.

But that was not the only thing that the Indian CS:GO community did for him. While EcheloN cannot come back to life, the community makes sure that his death will be remembered with a CS:GO tournament on Discord named EcheloN. A member of a group called CS:GO India Community had come up with his idea to memorize the man. Even though he had never met or heard of EcheloN, he still went out of his way to do such a nice thing.

The tournament will have no entry fee and anyone could join the tournament. Since this tournament is to memorize the death of EcheloN, any toxic behavior is absolutely forbidden. The tournament will start on June 6. If you are interested to join, you can register through this link.

It is great to see a gaming community come together and create such a beautiful thing like this. The CS:GO India Community has shown how well video games can connect people together to share their feeling, thoughts, and to accomplish meaningful things for other people.
