ESIC rescind sanctions over CS:GO ‘spectator bug’

Sergey ‘LMBT’ Bezhanov’s so-called ‘spectator bug’ sanction issued by ESIC has now been rescinded and he is free to coach in ESIC member events with immediate effect.

Sergey ‘LMBT’ Bezhanov, one of the coaches originally implicated in the sanctions issued by ESIC in September, has provided further information to ESIC which has satisfied the Commissioner to take an action in rescinding the ban due to the compelling nature of the evidence which, upon ESIC’s examination was verified and corroborated by various third parties.

The Commissioner at ESIC went on to state:

“Sergey ‘LMBT’ Bezhanov has supplied compelling documentary, video and 3rd party corroborative evidence to ESIC that has given the Commissioner comfortable satisfaction that he was, in two cases, not at his computer at the time he was bugged and, in the other two cases, did disconnect timeously and seek admin assistance, neither seeking or gaining any unfair advantage through exploitation of the bug. Consequently, the original findings and sanction are hereby rescinded and he is free to coach in ESIC member events with immediate effect. ESIC is grateful for LMBT’s and Forze’s patience in waiting for this decision, appreciating the significant complexity of the matter and other compelling calls on our limited time and resources.”
