MIBR, Hard Legion to have RMR points reset due to coaching bug use
Valve have commented on the use of the coaching bug and announced the punishments connected to the Regional Major Ranking and its tournaments.
Although the developers didn't name anyone in particular, the two teams are bound to have their RMR points reset following the disqualification of Hard Legion from ESL One: Road to Rio - CIS and MIBR from the North American divisions of Road to Rio and cs_summit 6.
The two teams had been handed retroactive disqualifications from the tournaments in question earlier in September as a result of their head coaches, Aleksandr "zoneR" Bogatiryev and Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia, using the coaching bug on six maps in the Russian's case and two maps across two events in the Brazilian's.
Valve commented on the possibility of taking action against individual coaches, as well, stating that they will wait until they get "a complete picture of the extent of the bug abuse and the punishments handed down by third parties." For the time being, the developers may consider limitations to coaching as prevention against further violation of the integrity of matches.
At the moment, zoneR, dead, and Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen are the only three coaches to have received formal bans, from ESIC and, in the MIBR coach's case, also from Beyond the Summit. It is likely that more will follow, however, after several other coaches were found or admitted to using the bug.
