The debacle surrounding former Optic India player “forsaken” is still many pieces away from getting resolved. Responding to our exclusive report on the heated matter, ESL India has released an official statement addressing the issue.
The official ESL India page on Facebook posted –
Based on the proof from Zowie eXTREMESLAND Asia Finals, we at ESL India are investigating all the 20 players in the #ESLIndiaPremiership Finale for any potential cheats on their drives. On immediate inspection, we have discovered the same cheat program that was used by Forsaken in Shanghai on the SSD he used at the ESL India Premiership Fall Finale and have shared this evidence with the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC).
We at ESL India have considered this a Level 4 offence under the Code of Conduct of ESIC. The Commissioner of ESIC is conducting an independent inquiry and will deliver his verdict soon.
The authority is handling the issue with great caution, which might lead the ESL India team, in collaboration with ESIC, to take strict actions against Nikhil “forsaken” Kumawat.
Here’s what the Product Head of ESL India Premiership had to say –
