Starladder investigation results: 2 teams disqualified
A few days ago popular CIS caster Starsky, who's also the founder of the casting studio & the esports organization Unique Sports, has accused teams Kit-Kat & AfterAlt of teaming and managed to almost singlehandedly to prove it just buy watching demos & investigating one of the players' steam who has been chatting with his opponents. Starladder has made their own investigation and here's the official statement from them.
The referee panel of StarLadder and PUBG Corp. considered two cases of violations that were recorded during the qualifiers for PUBG Europe League in the Europe: East region. It was decided to disqualify teams Kit-Kat and AfterAlt, while a team ToxicPlayers needs to replace one player.
According to the facts provided, the referee panel found the charges against Kit-Kat and AfterAlt teams sufficient. Both teams were disqualified for 3 months from all StarLadder and PUBG Corp. tournaments, and their qualifier's results were annulled. Instead of Kit-Kat, the LAN-qualifier for PEL will be attended by XO4Y_FNCTAWEK, who secured the 8th place in the overall standings, immediately after AfterAlt had been disqualified.
Nevertheless, we believe that the teams will draw conclusions from the situation and we are ready to allow them to participate in the upcoming series of tournaments PUBG Open League, the winners of which will receive an invitation to the Contenders League.
A ToxicPlayers player with a nickname dangerousPelmen was disqualified due to a ban of one of his PUBG accounts. At the same time, the ToxicPlayers team still has the opportunity to replace him in order to save their place in the LAN-qualifier.
Recall that together with the start of closed qualifiers, we declared an amnesty for previously disqualified players from the StarLadder tournaments. We look forward to their prudence and give them a second chance to take part in the most significant league in Europe.
