Titan have announced that they have suspended Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian from their active roster following the player's VAC ban.
Earlier today, the CS:GO community was rocked by the stunning news that Titan's Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian, one of France's most accomplished CS:GO players, had been caught in the latest wave of VAC bans.
The news will certainly spark debate in the scene about professional players using cheating software - a possibility that was raised by former ALTERNATE member Simon "smn" Beck, who has also been VAC banned -, just days before DreamHack Winter.
Titan have now announced that, following KQLY's VAC ban, the player has been suspended pending an ongoing investigation.
"Upon logging onto Titan’s usual scrim server, while at the training house and while using a recently formatted PC, KQLY got VAC banned and can therefor not train or practice with his official account," a Titan statement read.
"We are currently in contact with Valve in order to investigate what might have caused this and we will keep you informed as the situation develops."
In case KQLY's VAC ban stands, then Titan's spot at DH Winter is at risk since the team will no longer have three members of the LDLC squad who finished in the top eight at ESL One Cologne.
