It was a dreaded day, September had just started, schools were starting up again, and people were getting on with their merry lives.
But then three people ruined the scene, when ESIC announced that HUNDEN, dead, and zoneR had been temporarily banned from Counter-Strike and its tournaments for abusing a coaching exploit.
If this sounds like a bad start to a horrible fan-fic from Reddit, then you need to wake up because reality is even worse.
ESIC has anounced that they will be revealing the findings of their coach exploit investigation on Monday the 28th of September, at 10 AM CET - is that time just META now? - and this means we will finally find out what happens to Rejin, Pita, Twista and many, many more.
We don't know the full extent of the findings or the verdict that will be passed on the cheating coaches, so we can only speculate.
Our educated guess sees the coaches that confessed during the confession period receive lower punishment, and maybe some surprises here and there with coaches who thought they had gotten away with it.
So now's your time to shine, because since you've been reading our newsletter frequently, you know all there is to know about pro CS. Get out there and apply!
God we're so funny.
