Former Titan member Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian has admitted that his VAC ban was justified and that he tried a cheating software for a week.
Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian was on Thursday handed a VAC bac, which cost him his place on the team and resulted in Titan being disqualified from DreamHack Winter.
In a statement issued on his Facebook page, KQLY apologised to his fans and to his team and admitted that he tried a cheating program after being convinced by its developer that many professional players were using it.
However, the French player stressed that he only used it for a week, and it was before joining Titan, thus rejecting suggestions that he had used it in competitive tournaments.
"As you saw yesterday, I was banned by VAC and unfortunately it was justified," he wrote on Facebook.
"I wanted to say that I'm really sorry to all the people who supported me, I am aware that with this bullsh*t my career is now over and my team are a very bad position. They did not deserve that.
"At the end of August, I was contacted by a supex0 progammer, who built a strong case and told me that a lot of pros were using the program.
"Instantly, I became curious. He gave me access to the program for seven days. Like an idiot, I fell into temptation, which was too great. I wanted to see what it looked like on public servers and matchmaking.
"I did not use it after that. I was going to join Titan and I did not need to take unnecessary risks while I had all that I needed: a top team, with a solid structure behind it. My curiosity failed me and now my career is over CS after 12 years.
"I lost everything and I do not expect any compassion, I made a mistake and I will pay it for it. Unfortunately everything ends here. Once again, I'm really sorry to have disappointed everyone."
