Spirit Academy file protest in CIS Minor qualifier

MIRAA
October 10th, 2017 11:55

Spirit Academy have filed a protest following their defeat in the second round of the open qualifier for the CIS Minor.

Spirit Academy, who are currently ranked 78th in the world, were denied the chance to attend a CIS Minor for the second time in a row after being defeated by FONTAN 16-11 in the Round of 128.

After the match, Spirit Academy approached CEVO, the company in charge of the qualifier, and filed a protest, claiming that two of FONTAN's players, Egor "darkinho" Lobanov and Sergey "SER1Y" Oleynikov are currently barred by FACEIT.

1uke and co were defeated in the second round of the qualifier

Aleksey "1uke" Zimin took to VK.com, Russia's biggest social media platform, to vent his frustration, and provided links to the alleged FACEIT accounts of darkinho and SER1Y (who plays under the alias "fix").

Contacted by HLTV.org, Team Spirit manager Ruslan "Eddieh" Buhryn revealed that CEVO told his team that it could take over 24 hours for them to review this case. Even if FONTAN are disqualified, Spirit Academy will not be able to reclaim their spot in the tournament, which is running on a tight schedule and is already down to just 16 teams - FONTAN being one of them.

darkinho's team, who will take on mimimishki in the Round of 16, are just two wins away from securing a spot at the CIS Minor, which will run later this month, in Bucharest.

In a tweet, Spirit ironically applauded the "excellent choice" to have CEVO run the qualifiers for the CIS Minor, which they described as the "most important tournament of the season".

HLTV.org has reached out to CEVO for comment.

Ahaha, for sure. About 5 years ago me and my friends played some online CS 1.6 tournament (just for fun) and when we won 1uke's team with score like 16:3 they also "filed a protest" and we just got ban without any reason or evidence because someone from his team knew someone from tournament organizers. Unfortunately it's common thing in CIS "scene".
2017-10-10 16:54
With the little difference that they got caught cheating by EAC, which is more than just a claim
2017-10-10 19:05
I'm not saying FONTAN didn't cheat. But retards like 1uke will always cry about your "cheats" after they lose, no matter if you cheat or not.

? I didn't pretend to anything and I made it clear that we (mix of friends, not even team) played this online tournament just for fun. And I didn't say I played with 1uke, I said I played against him. live-cs.ru/tourney/match/20078/ i.imgur.com/alkubye.png i.imgur.com/ZqXPhd0.png i.imgur.com/W0Nt06k.png i.imgur.com/wCygvm4.png

With the current cheating epidemic, they should be irritated. More so when they actually have to play against players known for cheating. Not something that should be taken lightly.

No ofc not,they should punch these guys next lan for sure

Why they didn't check players BEFORE the match?
2017-10-10 16:51
idk, perhaps they just weren't aware of it? Or perhaps they noted fishy plays during their match, and looked into it? Who knows. Cevo - as the event host should have however checked the players competing... Not really the teams job.

why not lol? I wrote in support and they answered me that I can use the schanger and faceit aswell befose they add their shitty af anticheat but noone knows about esea that's why so many players was banned many people wrote that I used skinchanger not fucking hacks but the admins don't give a shit about it they put the reason for "cheating"
2017-10-10 13:21
Well ur probs a kid then. I am almost certain those players who claim they got banned due to skinchanger only use it as an excuse, because who the fuck cares about skins especially if it only shows for yourself.

2017-10-10 13:05
did the rules include that cheating was fair?
2017-10-10 13:54
Idk, that was an old ban, doubt he would try it again. It's fucked in my opinion, but clearly cevo doesn't care so idk

>darkinho and SER1Y had been banned from previous Minors thats not true. there was 1 player, who got disqualified on cologne cis minor because of suspicous gamestyle.without any proofs, probably just by other org request. not banned, he was still allowed to play on the next minor and starladder league, and his nickname was efim1337. completely different person, who has no relations with ones mentioned in 1uke's post.

2017-10-10 13:28
actually, the fact that some of them has been banned on faceit doesn't mean anything. Faceit ban relates only to faceit platform, that's all. If they have been banned by VAC it would be really decent reason to disqual them, but there is no VAC ban so...
2017-10-10 13:59
Oh rly. Many pro and normal players were banned on both faceit or esea and didnt recieve vac ban So ur saying stronger anti cheats like faceit ac and esea ac are bad compared to vac?
2017-10-10 14:06
who are those pros? Could you please share with me and give me some examples.
2017-10-10 14:17
naumoff ? he was banned from cis minor and got all of his team Dq'd
2017-10-10 18:48
he is not even a pro, he was VAC banned on a previous steam account and when admins had found this out he would have been DQ. In addition, I saw that match against k29 (now Nemiga) and his plays were really strange after that admins check him.

They should had said that before the match (refusing to play) not after losing it. This sounds as crying, even if they are right. FONTAN players should be investigated.
