Kaipi disqualified, Evil Geniuses to EMS One

posted by Sun_Tzu, 317 days ago
Following their victorious run in the RaidCall EMS One American qualifier, eu Kaipi have been disqualified by ESL for being in violation of the minimum requirement of three South or North American players, which is in place to promote growth within the American Dota 2 scene. The team has admitted fault for their offlane player ro Pittnet 'b0ne7' Armand playing under other peoples accounts during the qualifiers and in the finals against us Evil Geniuses, and has issued an appology to their fans.




In order to take part in the competition, Kaipi registered with ca Thomson 'Lust' Tran as their fifth player in place of b0ne7. However, they eventually came under suspicion for having played with their normal roster instead, but without sufficient evidence the admins allowed them to play out the finals in order to gather further proof of the transgression.

After the finals ca Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao was presented with the evidence gathered and admitted that the team has been using b0ne7 through-out most of the competition, therefore being in violation of the tournament rules. As a result, Kaipi have lost their spot at the EMS One LAN finals, and any team consisting of 3 or more of the players currently on the Kaipi roster will be disallowed from competing in the Summer or Fall seasons of EMS One.

In addition players b0ne7 and Lust have received personal bans for their direct participation in this fraudulent act, which will last for the Summer and Fall seasons of EMS One. EternaLEnVy has also been given a personal ban for the Summer season as well as the first two cups of the Fall season for his involvement in the events that have unfolded.

Due to the disqualification of Kaipi it will instead be the other finalist of the American qualifier, Evil Geniuses, who will receive the place at the EMS One LAN Finals in Poland next month. The other seven slots for the LAN Finals will be awareded through the European qualifier, where the fourth and final cup of the season will conclude later today.

ESL Global rules regarding fraud and deception:

2. Fraud/deception
2.1. Deception
The attempt to deceive admins or other players with wrong or fake statements, information or data will not be tolerated.

2.2. Other unauthorized offences
Including but not limited to the abusing of bugs in the website.

These penalties are at the discretion of the responsible admin and are penalized according to severity.


Statements

Statement by ca James 'Kennigit' Lampkin, Product Manager EMS One DOTA2:

Kaipi has been found to have been in violation of EMS One's regional player restriction and has be removed from RaidCall EMS One Summer 2013. EMS One Americas requires that a minimum of 3 out of 5 players reside in North or South America to harbor growth of the scene and deal with lag issues. Due to Kaipi's standard roster not fitting this requirement, they registered with a stand in player (Lust from Canada). According to EMS One's rule set, Kaipi was required to field a majority American roster throughout the qualifying cups and group stage. However, we recently became aware that Kaipi has been using Lust's account as a smurf for Romanian player bOne7 (actual Kaipi member from Europe).

bOne7 and Lust shared accounts in the semi finals, final and other matches throughout the season. While EMS One admins and management were aware of the allegations before the finals against team Evil Geniuses, the match was allowed to proceed to gather further evidence, including Lust's account pinging 200ms+ consistently across 3 games to US East during their games against EG. Kaipi has since admitted that they were in fact using bOne7 on Lust's account.

Action has been taken against the two directly involved players as well as EternalEnVy for disrupting the nature of the competition, voiding the RaidCall EMS One Americas final and orchestrating an effort to undermine the residency rules in place. EternalEnVy eventually admitted to the accusations in the face of evidence.

Punishments
Kaipi: Kaipi's team license has been revoked for RaidCall EMS One Summer 2013 and Fall 2013. This ban will be upheld as long at least three current Kaipi players are registered together (even under another organization).

bOne7: bOne7 has been banned from Summer 2013 and Fall 2013. This means, whether or not he plays for Kaipi in the Fall EMS Season he will be ineligible to compete.

Lust: Lust has been banned from Summer 2013 and Fall 2013. This means, whether or not he plays for Kaipi in the Fall EMS Season he will be ineligible to compete.

EternalEnVy: EternalEnVy has been banned for two cups in Fall 2013. If EternalEnvy were to leave Kaipi and join another team, he would be prevented from playing the first two cups of Fall 2013.


Evil Geniuses has been awarded a default win from the final and will compete in Poland this Summer at the DOTA2 Finals.

We regret this incident. Here at ESL, we value fair competition above all else and are disappointed that the team of Kaipi has neglected our rules in the way they did.


Statement made by se Johan 'pieliedie' Åström of eu Kaipi:

We want to apologize to the ESL organizers and to our fans. Yesterday we used our normal roster instead of a 3 NA/2 EU roster that is required for the online portion of the EMS One tournament. We justified this to ourselves because it would have been our normal roster that would be playing at the LAN finals, as allowed by the admins. At the end of the day rules are rules and even if we don't agree with one they are there to be followed. We're a new team and we're still finding our place in the scene, we still have much to learn and we appreciate your patience as we mature personally and professionally. Again, we want to apologize to our fans and especially to the ESL organizers for our mistake.

Yup. Tournament rules stated that to participate you needed at least 3 American players. So KP for some reason joined the tourney pretending to be using a US standin in place of bone7.
