10 complaints have come to Gamer.LK regarding the Women’s Cyber Games participants sharing accounts. Out of this, Gamer.LK has completed investigations on 3 and taken necessary action outlined below. 6 have been closed as there was not enough evidence to pursue them further. 1 is ongoing. The complaints have been made against 3 different clans in Sri Lanka.
Women’s teams CS:GO
Tournament participant clans Tech Morph and Phoenix GaminG requested further inquiry into nA.Vendetta as they felt there was strong evidence to show that players changed between matches. This was largely due to nA.Vendetta’s poor performance in the first match played on map “Nuke” which they lost 16-0, and their stronger performances on maps “Mirage” and “Inferno” in the lower bracket and final respectively. Steps were taken to verify players at the start of the match using TeamSpeak, IP matching and video verification for one of the players. Demos were also reviewed and Gamer.LK found no major evidence to suggest foul play.
Based on the escalation, an investigation was commenced on the 5 women-players of nA.Vendetta. An international panel of 3 Esports personalities were put together to provide an independent opinion on the claims by the accusers. The panel consisted of a professional CS:GO referee with experience in Esports World Championships, a CS:GO caster/analyst and a professional CS:GO player currently playing in the pro circuit.
Detailed notes were presented by the 2 accusing clans, and defending notes were provided by Noob Alliance. This, along with the demos were submitted to the international panel.
The panel took 5 days to review the documentation and demos provided. After review, the 3 panelists submitted findings on the investigation and concluded independently that nA.Vendetta is cleared of any wrong-doing. They noted while there was a definite improvement in performance after Nuke, it was within acceptable margins of difference between maps. Especially considering performances on practiced maps and maps unknown to players. The panel’s decision was also based on monitoring the players general playstyle such as crosshair placement and movement, which they confirmed was similar throughout all maps.
No further action will be pursued on this matter.
Women’s Clash Royale
PnX – Shayzi played one match, but politely denied a request for cam verification during the match due to not having an additional phone. Players have the right to refuse due to legitimate reasons, but will not be allowed to continue playing if tournament verification guidelines are not adhered to.
Women’s DOTA 1v1
The recently concluded 1st round of Women’s DOTA 1v1 title had its own moments. nA.Cherry failed to provide additional verification requested by Gamer.LK and has been removed from the tournament. nA.Cherry will not be allowed to play any further Gamer.LK tournaments until she is able to follow verification instructions provided by Gamer.LK, which she has agreed to do in the future.
The Women’s Cyber Games event is only half way done and has been the talk of the town for the past week. Stay tuned to Gamer.LK for more information from the tournament as it happens.
