Esports integrity group launches deep CS:GO inquiry, gives cheaters a chance to ‘confess’

Earlier this week, three CS:GO coaches from Hard Legion, Heroic, and MIRB were suspended by ESL for terms of up to two years for using a glitch that enabled them to spectate games from anywhere on the map, and relay information back to players, without anyone knowing. A couple of days later, ESIC—the Esports Integrity Commission—imposed its own penalties, across a wider range of tournaments.

Today ESIC announced that since imposing those sanctions, it has “reviewed a large quantity of evidence,” and based on that has decided to conduct an investigation into other potential exploits of the glitch going all the way back to 2016. The inquiry will include an analysis of roughly 25,000 demos of CS:GO matches played between 2016-20; based on what’s found, it will establish “standard sanctions,” do a further manual review of “key suspect demos,” and publish breakdowns of sanctions on a monthly basis.
