Jamppi is free... but at what cost?

All we're saying is, it all went downhill since that EZ4ENCE song.

For those of you who don't know anything about Jamppi's VAC ban, do you have space under that rock? We jest - this video from theScore will get you up to speed pretty quickly.

The good news, is that the guy is free from the shackles of his VAC ban - but the bad news is that that's only because it doesn't cover Riot Games tournaments.

Yeah, that über-talented kid who has been tearing it up and wants to play CSGO? He's moved to VALORANT, officially.

It's hard not to feel a little gutted for the guy. He was living out his dream but it's been cut short because an old mistake of his has been dragged up. Though he comes as close to a smile as is possible for a Finn during his goodbye video, there's definitely some pain in leaving the game he grew up playing.

Not only that, the whole scene is losing a talented young player - and the Finnish scene is already in shambles after the whole ENCE debacle. While undoing someone's VAC ban could potentially open a can of worms (for Valve), there has to be a middle ground.

After all this time, it wasn't Valve who freed Jamppi. It was Riot.

2021 is weird, yo.
