The Esport Integrity Commission har bestemt seg for å oppheve utestengelsen av Reason Gaming. Utestengelsen kom som følge av beskyldninger om at de hadde tapt en Counter-Strike-kamp mot Radix Esports i ESL Premiership med vilje, men nå er avgjørelsen altså gjort om.
Esports Integrity Commissioner Ian Smith har lagt ut følgende annonsering om saken
"ESIC would not usually comment on investigations, but, in this case, unfortunately, details were put into the public domain and, in the interests of natural justice and protecting the reputations of those involved, it is only right that we clarify what has happened.
Preliminary evidence justified provisional suspension given the stage of the Premiership that had been reached and the time pressures involved. These pressures also prompted us to expedite the further investigation of the allegations, which we did as quickly as possible.
The result of those further investigations is that we are satisfied that underperformance by the Reason Gaming team in their match against Radix was not deliberate as originally alleged. Consequently, we have lifted the suspension at the earliest opportunity."
Laget spilte altså rett og slett dårlig uten å mene det. Det kan virkelig ikke være greit å ha en så dårlig da at man blir beskyldt for å tape med vilje.
