pita admits to using spectator bug in 2018 ESL Pro League match

The Swedish coach has come forward and publicly acknowledged his use of the bug in an online match against mousesports.

Former NiP coach Faruk "⁠pita⁠" Pita released a statement on Friday revealing that he used the coaching bug during the team's last ESL Pro League Season 8 match against mousesports, back in November 2018. At that point, the Ninjas were already set for a relegation battle — before the Pro League was expanded to 16 teams —, while their opponents were fighting for seeding at the LAN finals.

pita, who was replaced by Björn "⁠THREAT⁠" Pers as NiP's coach in January 2020, claims he didn't know how the bug was triggered and that he only used it for five or six rounds. Feeling remorseful for his actions, he then tried to contact Valve to report the bug through Twitter's Direct Messages, a channel he had previously used to contact the game developer regarding similar problems.

When pita finally figured out how the exploit worked and how he could trigger it, four months after his initial report, he once again reached out to the CS:GO development team but received no response.

pita revealed he abused the coaching bug in a 2018 match

"I accept any punishment handed out to me," pita wrote in a statement, "I realize this will harm my reputation as a coach but I can’t undo things even though I would like to. I just have to accept this and admit my guilt. I’m sorry to everyone that I know and who knows me. I understand that you might look at me differently after this but I hope you can forgive me one day. The bug got the better of me, I acted irrational and I fucked up. I never used that bug afterwards.

"The only thing I did afterwards when it happened again was to press the keys 1-10 and the bug would stop. If there’s any admin who wants to confirm that from my POVs in online games I’d be happy to assist with my demos."

The Esports Integrity Coalition announced on Friday that it had opened an investigation into the coaching bug matter, with a confession period that will run through September 13. Admissions of guilt can be sent directly to the commissioner by email at commissioner@esic.gg, and concessions may be made by the ESIC at their discretion based on the quality of the confessions.

at least he reported it to valve
2020-09-04 12:40
+1 - guess he got caught off guard when using it that one time - shouldn't really be punished if this was the only time and he then reported it
2020-09-04 12:46
equal bans for all that is fair.
2020-09-04 12:52
premeditated and planned bug abuse deserves more punishment than a single lapse in judgement.
2020-09-04 12:55
nope. "accident means call an admit immediately. if you don't do it you abuse with all consequences.
2020-09-04 12:57
That's not what an accident is friendo. An accident is not on purpose. If he intentionally goes into the bug in order to gain information, then that's worse than if he gets bugged and doesn't instantly do the right thing. He still deserves punishment, just not 'equal bans for all'. That's how literally every justice system in the world works. If you plan to kill someone, that's worse than if you don't plan it and do it by accident. Premeditated murder is punished more heavily than murder of opportunity. Similarly, premeditated bug abuse should be punished more severely than opportunistic bug abuse that is almost immediately regretted and reported.
2020-09-04 13:01
If you make a car accident and you drive away you do a crime. I have nothing more to add except that your moral compass is trash.
2020-09-04 13:03
except he didnt drive away, but reported the bug to valve
2020-09-04 13:06
by not calling and admin he drove away. Otherwise, he had nothing to confess now.
2020-09-04 13:07
Look here low IQ guy... what he is saying is that- If he planned to crash car and drive away is worse than accidential crashing car and then drive away but turn himself in just after. idiot

did you even read his statement he reported it twice once after the game was finished and again 4 months later. so by this metaphor he turned himself in twice(atleast called in that it had happened) and got ignored.
2020-09-04 13:25
reported to valve not to esl.
2020-09-04 17:03
he didn't he reported it in Nov 18. Without looking this up I assume this was right after the match. Not sure what you have against pita but you are delusional
2020-09-04 13:28
He didnt report it to esl and that is the first thing to do.
2020-09-04 17:03

I mean big used the jump bug and astralis used the smoke bug and got away with it, the reason why coaches are getting punished is because this bug hasn't been detected for years and the coaches never reported it. On the other hand pita reported it right after the match, therefore shouldn't face any consequence like big, and astralis.
2020-09-05 04:18
Jump bug was known and used before BIG used to the edge. And you couldn't do anything against the bug or would you restart every round when it happen just by jumping? These are two different levels of bugs. And Pita didn't report it to ESL that was his only duty not to tell it Valve. His right duty was to inform the admins during the match,

jump bug gave equal or even more information than the spectator bug on some maps like inferno ct side, so therefore it was yes a different level bug and it was pretty easy to spot if someone was doing it or not. Big would have easily been out of the group stage if they didnt abuse the bug, they were pretty weak at the time
2020-09-07 04:23
#70+87 - he should go free - he didn't cause the bug and didn't abuse it again
2020-09-04 13:07
he abused it 5-6 rounds bye
2020-09-04 13:08
"claims he didn't know how the bug was triggered and that he only used it for five or six rounds." He probably got surprised - and he reported it. And since you are being so unreasonable - I'll just bid you good day, my southern friend
2020-09-04 13:11
he has to report it to admins before he goes to Valve.

dude chill out, you're looking silly being so fumed by this at least he came forward with this and wasn't trying to hide the fact he used the bug once (he wasn't trying to get it intentionally)
2020-09-04 16:49
sorry but he comes already too late. When the first statement came about the bug and investigation start you come forward. Not when it is already deep running. Fact is if he did the correct way at this match he doesn't need to confess sth today. Also why he didn't tell ESL about it but go to Valve?? When ESL is aware of the BUG they can do sth against it at least for their tournaments.

Not about that. You have to ask what moral this people have if they can't do the right thing in such a simple situation. People who start to justify such behaviour or say "he did it good" they are obv also people that would cheat in situations where you shouldn't do that.

you forgot that he can prove that he reported it.
2020-09-04 13:26
In his statement, he didn't say anything that he reported it to ESL. And he obv didn't do that cuz otherwise ESL was aware of the bug. But he finds the time to report to valve twice.
2020-09-04 17:06
2020-09-04 17:34
no its not. There is a difference between using it in 6 matches and not intending to stop and being confused by it, and reporting it directly to valve. If you cant see that this makes a difference I can't help you
2020-09-04 13:26
ESL rules are clear in this. Accident or not he had to contact the admins in the second it happened and not wait for 5-6 rounds. If ESL admins said "ok try it out so we have material for valve" then it is fine but esl obv didn't know anything.

if valve is willing to permanently ban IBP for throwing a single match, there's no reason why they shouldn't give lifetime bans to people who were literally cheating.
2020-09-04 17:14
he shouldnt get off completely free as he did use it for multiple rounds, but I think a shorter ban makes sense
2020-09-04 17:13
Why not if it was unintentional?
2020-09-04 18:53
Just use some common sense and think how many used it. Every online team have been playing with that for ages and this explains pretty much why major qualifiers are always so hard for teams that played like 5 online matches per season.

Do you have any proof?
2020-09-04 13:16
why else would he use it if not to give info ? especially since it was in pro league
2020-09-04 13:16
This doesn't mean the players knew about it.
2020-09-04 13:17
giving players info does not equal telling them that he abused a bug. Unless you have proof that he told the players he cheated (btw. even then you have the "he reported himself" excuse in this case) don't make any claims. Same goes for the other teams.
2020-09-04 13:30
And valve didn't care
2020-09-04 13:37
It looks much worse for Valve rather than Pita. He cheated and should be punished accordingly, yes, but at least he admitted it when nobody was actively looking for coaches abusing the bug like right now. Meanwhile Valve knew about the issue for at least two years and didn’t do shit. They don’t care about the game and its pro scene, they would rather keep using it as a cash cow.

2020-09-04 12:45
he used bug that exist in game that is being developed by valve? No? They wasn't fixing it while getting many reports. If these things like pita told open up only 2 years later, i swear there is a lot more shit inside csgo. Inside community. Actually our community is so shit

thats like saying anyone who russian walked in 1.6, crouch bug peaked in CSS should be banned.

He knowingly used it to gain unfair advantage, how the fuck is it not his fault? Not really surprising though, what can you expect from a guy who stole from charity

I'm gonna go ahead and think that he doesn't mean anything other than what he wrote. Besides, it doesn't make much of a difference. DMing to a Twitter profile that has some PR-IT guys running it has about the same result as writing to Valve's Twitter. Sure, they can forward the concern, but they might easily have a policy of not DMing anyone at all due to privacy risks. It just sounds like a lie to even mention it like that in the first place, as everyone knows Valve is bad at consumer relations. If Valve said "We didn't get that message", the public would think Valve is incompetent/lying rather than pita is lying. It's quite expected really.

I guess he wants the punishment to start now when he isn't active rather then later when he gets active again.

They are checking demos from back to 2016. He would've get caught eventually.

2020-09-04 12:50
This bug makes me question the entire cs go scene. How could this go on for years?
2020-09-04 12:46

2020-09-04 17:43
everyone here complaining about valve ,we all hate valve but what can you do about it lmao you wanna boycott them or what? they just keep abusing the love of fans and gaining money from it , they know even if they stop caring about the game people will keep playing and keep spending money on it that's why valve doesn't give a fuck

2020-09-04 17:43
True. But imagine how many other coaches abused the bug and are now at home, scared shitless. And most of them don't even have the balls to say anything
2020-09-04 18:32

A huuuge proof that valve rather ignores and hides cheating than fighting it because theyll milk us fans as long as possible rather than risking sponsors etc. People should boycott it until we have a 3rd party organisation to control cheating/doping like every other professional sport too!

VALVE are retarded, sorry for my language, im sorry to say that, good pita admitted it, but that doesnt take the responsibility away from him and doesnt make him look better, but im more concerned above VALVE being contacted proactively twice by the guy and they did nothing, that was 2 years ago, and look to what this led to now, this is just the beginning for sure! That could've been addressed and resolved if those idiots listened and acted accordingly, simply no comment here! They should suspend/ban themselves and VALVE shouldn't even be upset they are being called out bad names here and stuff as that's their fault first of all not doing something you were told to do with proof from whoever exploited it! So bad man, unreal! :O
2020-09-04 14:06
so he abused it in 2018, reported it, and was not fixed until later half of 2020? And Valve simply bans coaches because some random referee caught them? What the fuck Valve?
2020-09-04 14:13

The interesting part is whether ESL will disqualify them and make them pay the prizemoney back. We all know NiP is not really good at paying. There could be serious problems.
2020-09-04 14:20
So every online match result atleast since 2018 is invalid now but probably since 2016. If valve doesnt even fix bug like this im not suprised if they didnt ban flusha like starix said. This is just looking even more that after 2014 vac bans valve just give up and let so called pro players cheat and exploit bugs. What is certain that csgo have been the most rigged scene in esports.

The answer is simply, no one read this PM at that time. Also usually twitter is not the best way to report bugs. At the moment there is this e-mail with csgofeedback in name for bug reports. I don't remember if it existed back in 2018. I don't blame pita, also there are the cases when molo+smoke bug let you see enemy in the smoke, do you shot or not? If you shot you are abusing the bug but it's completely normal and not a reason for a ban. If someone intentionally triggers the coach bug and uses it for providing info then it is cheating. When it happens to you first time then you usually don't have time to evaluate what it really is and that it is not fair to stay in the bugged mode.
2020-09-04 14:24
he sacrifices himself for a greater good, but Volvo are those who should be punished aswell. Fucking incompetent idiots they think by banning the coaches they are doing them a favour. your shit trash company is responsible for it
2020-09-04 14:26
This is getting better and better with every new day... wondering when we'll get an information that half of pro scene is cheating.
2020-09-04 14:26
So that's how he bought his bmw, makes sense
2020-09-04 14:27
But, if the reported the bug back then, but the bug still exist, isn't Valve "cheating" or allowing people to "cheat" and deserve a punishment too? I mean, if you're a team that was affected for that, you can ask responsibilities to the other team and Valve, because they knew but they didn't care.
2020-09-04 14:30
Moral of the story: If you encounter a bug don't report it to Valve. Just show it publically on Twitter for everyone to see.
2020-09-04 14:35
next news: NIP's 87-0 rigged due to coach bug just ban everyone

2020-09-04 14:58
I think all these coaches should be perma banned. And starix. If they knew about it and didn't manage to get the report attention, they should have released it to the public. It would have been fixed in 3 days (right?). This situation is completely out of hand and for the first time in these 20y I feel cs legitimacy is really at risk.

*illegal advantage Buying auto sniper is not cheating
2020-09-04 23:53
Autosniper is shit compared to awp... Typical silver 1 comment The only way autosniper is better is if the individual (in this case a silver 1) is using this sniper weapon to his advatage only to make up for his poor reaction, reflexes, aim and logical thinking of his brain in combination of trying to wield an awp
2020-09-05 22:02
I meant to say extreme advantage. Auto sniper is not an advantage. If you know how to play the game its very easy to out play a sniper lol
2020-09-09 01:24
Takes guts man. It's pretty natural to try to avoid responsibility, whether we blame someone else or just deny guilt. Takes real character to voluntarily step out and "accept whatever punishment" is due.

It makes no sense to punish when half of coaches apparently abused it. Just FIX THE FUCKING BUG, and move on! Revoke all suspensions

the only ones who deserve to get punished in this case is valve themselves since pita reported the bug back in 2018 and they still havent fixed it after 2 years. embarrassing
