I'm Flamie and here's my statement.
Explanations!
To make things clear: this account does NOT belong to me, and it never did.
As most of you probably already know, there are steam page permalinks and then there are steam page aliases. For example, http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/765611979870535.. is a permalink, which means it can only belong to a certain, pre-determined steamid.
And then there are page aliases, which are chosen by the user himself and can be changed at any time. http://steamcommunity.com/id/ubq is a short alias for the aforementioned profile. However, at any time he could change it to http://steamcommunity.com/id/ubqdak1ngjesus, and that would mean that http://steamcommunity.com/id/ubq is free for anyone to take.

So, to sum it all up.
I used to play under my 1st steam account (0:1:61116, http://steamcommunity.com/id/flamief7/) for a long time. It had a page url of flamiew0w. I entered it as my steam profile link at ESEA. Then at some point in time I decided to change my steam url. I didnít change it at ESEA, because I obviously forgot about that. I donít think thereís anything condemning in that. For example, Delpanís profile @ SK-Gaming still says he plays in the same team as f0rest and GTR, even though itís not exactly true anymoreÖ
At this point in time, some random Russian/Polish guy decides to take my old steam url, flamiew0w. That means that my ESEA profile now links to his page, even though he has nothing to do with meÖ Thatís all there is to it. Anyone could take this steam url.
Then at some point in time my steam account got a trade ban. Iíll admit it, I like skins, so I chose to simply migrate to a new one. As you can see, it was NOT vac-banned, it simply got a trade ban, which I tried to avoid.

Now to answer those people who say I changed my steamID the same day that guyís account got VAC banned. This simply isnít correct. You canít change your ESL SteamID yourself, an admin has to do it for you, but first you have to open a ticket. Any ESL admin can confirm I applied for a steam ID change a week before his account got banned.

There is NOTHING linking me to the VAC-banned profile except for the steam url. If you do some google search, you will see it belongs to some ďIvan SofronovĒ, you can even find his league ids, heís been using that account since 2013. I have never played with that SteamID, not in any of my twitch broadcasts, not in any of the leagues. This is simply a mistake that got really blown out of proportion. This is especially weird considering those accusations came from Delpan, a player who didnít even bother to start his anticheat in both games he played at this tournament Ö Itís sad to see that a lot of people jumped on the bandwagon without actually checking the facts first.

Good game to ESG and ESG betters. Thank you for your skins and I hope you the best of luck in the tournament Flamie. And just ignore the negative posts in this thread, people who lost their skin will continue to pull bull shit out of their ass in attempt to get their skins returned.

Exactly, he didn't cheat at all. Delpan and eksem are just mad because they lost the game. Goodluck in the semi flamie!

I think this brings up an interesting question, should players who are trade banned be allowed to participate in Valve tournaments?
2014-07-27 05:04:32
it's like you say "a car with 50 km/h how old is the farmer"

No, flamie is representing the CS:GO community, by his own admission has acted maliciously towards this same community, why should he be allowed to represent the same people he tried to scam? There should consequences for his actions
2014-07-27 05:27:07
Sounds like you lost some skins? Trading has nothing to do with participating in competitive CS GO games. They are here to win, we are here to watch them play. No one cares about him being trade banned. So do me a favor, shut the fuck up and accept that you've lost your skins.

"Sounds like you lost some skins"

I don't bet

"Trading has nothing to do with participating in competitive CS GO games"

By being a pro CS player he's a representative of the CS:GO community, a pro who by his own admission has scammed other members of the CS:GO community, we don't allow people who cheat at CS:GO so why should we allow people who cheat other people of their belongings?

"shut the fuck up and accept that you've lost your skins."

As I said, mongoloid, I don't bet, it's sad that you make everything about betting rather than about the image of CS:GO and those who represent the community and what message it sends when thieves are accepted with open arms

Sure you don't bet, I completely believe you.

And still not one fuck was given. If the community doesn't care about him being trade banned then it shouldn't really bother you.

Maybe you have such great morals LOL. If people cared they would have called him out on it already but sadly no one does.

People only care about skins, and the games. No one cares about his trade ban only you do.

Bye.

All that was started by who ?!! Delpan ofc and as you said I quote you you "pro player" the pro doesn't accuse on air there is a way to claim that by reporting I think
Delpan also swear live on air he's very pro
so don't talk in things wich is bigger than us now I think there is an investigation we will wait for the result
Thanks =)
