It's not possible for /islam/ to participate in this event anymore, for these reasons:
The icup chatroom is a sinful gathering of people who speak idly, are of bad character, and who oppose Allah and His Messenger, with few exceptions. By having joined it we have taken a share of this evil.
Allah Ta'ala says:
وَقَدْ نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الْكِتَابِ أَنْ إِذَا سَمِعْتُمْ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ يُكْفَرُ بِهَا وَيُسْتَهْزَأُ بِهَا فَلَا تَقْعُدُوا مَعَهُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَخُوضُوا فِي حَدِيثٍ غَيْرِهِ ۚ إِنَّكُمْ إِذًا مِّثْلُهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ جَامِعُ الْمُنَافِقِينَ وَالْكَافِرِينَ فِي جَهَنَّمَ جَمِيعًا
"He hath already revealed unto you in the Scripture that, when ye hear the revelations of Allah rejected and derided, (ye) sit not with them (who disbelieve and mock) until they engage in some other conversation. Lo! in that case (if ye stayed) ye would be like unto them. Lo! Allah will gather hypocrites and disbelievers, all together, into hell" (4:140)
And He says:
وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ الَّذِينَ يَخُوضُونَ فِي آيَاتِنَا فَأَعْرِضْ عَنْهُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَخُوضُوا فِي حَدِيثٍ غَيْرِهِ ۚ وَإِمَّا يُنسِيَنَّكَ الشَّيْطَانُ فَلَا تَقْعُدْ بَعْدَ الذِّكْرَىٰ مَعَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ
"And when thou seest those who meddle with Our revelations, withdraw from them until they meddle with another topic. And if the devil cause thee to forget, sit not, after the remembrance, with the congregation of wrong-doers." (6:68)
And He says:
وَإِذَا سَمِعُوا اللَّغْوَ أَعْرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَقَالُوا لَنَا أَعْمَالُنَا وَلَكُمْ أَعْمَالُكُمْ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمْ لَا نَبْتَغِي الْجَاهِلِينَ
"And when they hear vanity they withdraw from it and say: Unto us our works and unto you your works. Peace be unto you! We desire not the ignorant." (28:55)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, "A person utters a word thoughtlessly (i.e., without thinking about its being good or not) and, as a result of this, he will fall down into the fire of Hell deeper than the distance between the east and the west." (Agreed upon.)
Narrated Abu Musa: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "The example of a good companion (who sits with you) in comparison with a bad one, is like that of the musk seller and the blacksmith's bellows (or furnace); from the first you would either buy musk or enjoy its good smell while the bellows would either burn your clothes or your house, or you get a bad nasty smell thereof." (Agreed upon.)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “If people sit in an assembly in which they do not remember Allah or invoke blessings on the Prophet it will be a cause of grief to them on the Day of Resurrection.” (Related by At-Tirmidhi who graded it as Hasan.)
And he reported: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: People who get up from an assembly in which they did not remember Allah will be just as if they had got up from an ass's corpse, and it will be a cause of grief to them. (Sunan Abi Dawud. Graded Sahih by al-Albani.)
And we have depicted the great men from the history of this Ummah - the scholars, the mujahideen, the Sahaba - as sportsball players, making a mockery of them and opening them to the mockery of the disbelieving spectators and managers of this event.
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The whole of the Muslim is sacred to his fellow Muslim, his blood, his wealth and his honor.” (Ibn Majah, graded Sahih)
Abdullah ibn Umar reported: The Prophet (ﷺ) him, said, “The curse of Allah is upon the one who insults my companions.” (al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ. Graded Hasan by al-Albani)
It is narrated on the authority of Jabir that he heard the Prophet (ﷺ) say: A Muslim is he from whose hand and tongue the Muslims are safe. (Muslim)
And I claim that this is the cause for us being unable to win any games whatsoever, because we have become wrongdoers and Allah has lowered us and dishonored us for it. By Allah, we have become sinful by joining in such an event, and we did so out of ignorance. May Allah forgive us and guide us and increase us in knowledge.
