Rejin suspended from mousesports as he confesses to coaching bug use*
In his admission and apology, the mousesports coach stated that he used the bug, which allowed coaches to stay in a fixed position in any spot on the map for any period of time during a match, in at least four maps in four matches during his time with the Danish team.
Rejin went on to stress that he had never used the exploit while part of the German organization beyond encountering it in a match at ESL One: Road to Rio, which mousesports confirmed after investigating the case alongside freelance referee Michal Slowinski.
"I take full responsibility for my actions and there is absolutely no excuse for that," the Dane said in his statement. "One thing I can say for sure is that the players did NOT know, under any circumstances, that I was using this bug. Neither did Tricked as an organisation or Mousesports."
"I am truly sorry and I would like to apologize to the teams, all the fans out there, the whole community, Mousesports, the players, my family and friends. And last, Morten (CEO) from Tricked Esport."
Rejin is the second coach to publicly admit to using the exploit since ESIC opened a confession period for offenders, after Faruk "pita" Pita came forward earlier on Friday to declare his use of the bug in 2018. More admissions are likely to come in the near future, according to Michal Slowinski, who shared on Twitter that "a lot of coaches came forward behind closed doors".
Previously, Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia, Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen, and Aleksandr "zoneR" Bogatiryev were all banned from ESL and DreamHack competitions for periods between six months and two years based on the extent of their offenses in tournaments organized by the two companies, and the MIBR coach went on to receive another ban from Beyond the Summit for a separate offense at cs_summit 6.
