ESL Bans Cheating Coaches

eSports organization ESL bands CS:GO coaches for up to two years for cheating. The coaches are Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia from MIRB, Aleksandr “MechanoGun” Bogatiryev from Hard Legion, and Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen Heroic teams. They are accused of using a bug to spectate the map and conveying the information to their players. ESL worked with Valve to confirm the bug and issued the bans and disqualified them from the tournaments they were cheating in. They explained in a statement that other coaches have encountered the bug and chose not to use it to their advantage.
