Maybe certain suspects took ESIC employees families as hostage and only released them after he said teams dont get punished for stream sniping
Is stream sniping explicitly against the rules? Honest question.. I know it's very much frowned upon, but there is a specific Valve rule about this?
ESIC added that, since the initial notification, it has gathered "compelling evidence" showing that this behavior "has been taking place on an alarmingly regular basis and at all levels of competition." In line with its previous decisions and sanctions, the commission faced "the very real prospect of banning a significant number of players, coaches and, in a few cases, entire teams", causing "an extremely adverse effect on CS:GO esports, particularly in the top tier
You realize that the reason they aren't banning people is because they would literally ban like 50% of the entire professional scene, also this was literally in the HLTV article for it I just copy pasted, cmon mens))
ESIC probably bribed by some underworld csgo mafia
there's no way to control if teams are stream sniping or not. just because a few of them were caught on camera, it doesn't mean the others aren't doing it as well behind the cameras (which let's be honest: all of them are). mibr and the other teams just happened to be in a bootcamp environment together with their coach which made that easier to spot, but any coach in the world will take advantage of watching the stream. no such thing as "competitive integrity" if a certain perceived offense can't be properly monitored and punished.
unfortunately this seems like another one of the downsides of the online era
He's not a hero, just a snitch.
nobody cares because all orgs are doing it
well philosophically saying, it is not wise to prohibit everything all the time. just set the rules well and let everything else be exploited to the max. expect everyone to do their max to exploit shit and when it starts to annoy, prohibit.
just don't do it later on having backwards in time penalty. this decision is perfect, from now on everyone knows the rules and if caught doing it gets a severe punishment.
