Hyper banned in ESL for cheating
MaxFloPlay member Bartosz "Hyper" Wolny has been handed a two-year ban from all ESL competitions after it was discovered that he cheated in a 2on2 ladder game.
The match in question was played on January 10th, with Wolny's team, called BUKLAKI, defeating Multiple Scoregasms 16-7 on de_dust2_se.
After the contest, Multiple Scoregasms filed a protest, and two months later the ESL has banned Wolny after reviewing the demos provided by the players.
According to cybersport.pl, the decision to ban the MaxFloPlay talent was unanimous by the ESL's anti-cheat team.
The decision will come as a heavy blow to MaxFloPlay, who finished runners-up to ESC Gaming in the last EPS season, whose LAN finals took place in February.
While the ESL has remained silent on whether there will be a new EPS season in Poland, Wolny's ban means that he will not be able to play for his team in the three EMS One seasons that will take place until the end of the year.
The news comes on the say day as the ESL announced that iPLAY and CPLAY were disqualified from EPS Germany after it was discovered that both teams had cheated in the league.
