OG offer support to ruggah following ban: "Casper deserves a second chance"

The players and staff had a meeting in which it was decided that the Danish coach will continue working with the team.

OG have announced that they have offered coach Casper "⁠ruggah⁠" Due their full support after he was handed a 3.75-month ban earlier on Monday by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) for a single-round use of the spectator bug while coaching Dignitas in a 2016 ESL Pro League match against Virtus.pro.

ruggah has been OG's coach since January

"Our CS:GO coach, Casper "ruggah" Due, came to us and explained that he encountered the 'coach bug' earlier in his career, before joining OG," the statement from the organisation read. "We immediately reached out to ESIC with Casper, we informed them of this incident, and we offered our collaboration during the investigation.

"We respect the ESIC decision, and effective immediately Casper will start to fulfill his ban. Maintaining the highest level of competitive integrity is something we consider vital in OG Esports. Following the ESIC's decision, players and staff got together as a team. We decided that Casper deserves a second chance and we want to continue working with him."

ruggah, who had a 25% reduction in his initial five-month ban after his confession was accepted in full by ESIC, joined OG as coach in January of this year, reuniting with his former North player Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså on the international team. The Danish coach will sit out the remainder of the season, starting with IEM New York's European division, which will kick off on October 6.

2020-09-28 17:30
it sounds kinda crap like in a way. i mean if you didn't know about the bug before and suddenly you're in a spectator mode.. wtf you're supposed to do, but then you fix it by disconnecting

Idk, maybe 1-2 months ban would be fair. He didnt tell that there was a bug even though he knew he was bugged. I mean he didnt abuse the bug but he also didnt do anything to prevent further abuses.

It's Valve's fault, not coaches. And that snitch thinks like he did something useful in this world, although just framed people for someone else's mistake.

Top shelf reasoning right here. So basically by using your logic if you see something that aint right you dont need to do anything to make it right because you were not the one who made a mistake in a first place?
2020-09-28 17:07
If you something that ain't right, then fix it without harming. Because of this bitch, innocent coaches got bun, and snitch was claimed as a hero.

HAHA, you made me laugh. You obviously dont have enough IQ to understand how things work. Ruggah did wrong and now he is proven guilty and he got banned and you are here crying about snitching? Q: Who did he snitch? A: Himself 4 years after the bug happened.
2020-09-28 17:21
You don't have enough IQ to understand from who it started. He was basically telling in twitter that you better give up, we anyway will show the list of these dishonest coaches who used the bug, this faggot fancies himself king, although being the last nonentity who ruins people's careers 'cause he is a loser himself. I don't know how can someone support those ones who frame other people 'cause they just took advantage for third's one stupidness. /closed.

I surely dont have enough IQ to figure out what are you talking about since I'm totally lost with your references about this subject. (I'm feeling like I'm becoming a retard because of you) Maybe because I'm not on twitter I might not know every detail especially if ruggah is having some kind of conversation there with other people. But as far as I can say and I know he talked with OG and said he had this bug 4 years ago in 1 match in 1 round and he together with OG management contacted ESIC because of it and therefore he snitched himself and did a right thing with OG to offer some help with the investigation. This is how I see it with the details I know. Please elaborate if I'm wrong.

So, many coaches are being banned and such, and I believe this is the right thing to do. But let me ask yall a question: abusing this bug recently is worse than back in 2017-2018? If not, why the organizations in which recent coaches are involved recently got extra punished? (For exemple, mibr lost RMR points, got disqualified in tournaments, had to return prize Money, etc)
2020-09-28 13:52
for RMR points and dq and prize money it's mostly bcz it's a major event i think
2020-09-28 13:58
pretty sure its cause they cheated at a rmr event thats part of a bigger event still going on
2020-09-28 14:23
RMR points lost cuz Valve don't support cheater. That was alone Valve decision. If you want to fight with Valve good luck.

MIBR lost RMR points because their coach abused the bug in a Valve sponsored tournament, where Valve has the jurisdiction to punish this whatever way they seem fit unlike in other tournaments where the bans are being handed out by the integrity org which is contracted to those TOs who hosted the events where bug was abused. Valve hasn't taken any stance regarding this situation, other than stripping off a team from their points if they abused it in a RMR event

2020-09-28 14:30
They are already in IEM New York and Blast Fall Series in October. From Blast they will go to Blast Finals (1st-4th) or Blast Showdown (5th-8th). Those alone will surely be enough to stay in top20. edit: also in Dreamhack Open RMR

"was handed a 3.75-month ban earlier on Monday (...) for a single-round use of the spectator bug while coaching Dignitas in a 2016 ESL Pro League match against Virtus.pro." 1 round in 2016, surely his punishment gets reverted right?

why u so eager to unban ppl who have shown they will cheat if the opportunity comes up? maybe it was very important round that shifted the course of the whole game man.

I think this turned from a coach shitshow to an esic shitshow. people with several 1 round occurences over years or people with a single occurence over more rounds arent cheaters / abusers. clean sport? yes sure, but this is bullshit. Imagine being on the list because years ago you had something you thought was a game crash or shit like that. they dont investigate. they dont use brain. they use software and if you had the bug, you are labeld as cheater this isnt about cheat software. you cant install word.exe by accident and cheat. this is a fcking bug and the data covers the possibility that it occured without using it in many cases. so far, there are < 5 coaches who 100% massively abused it! esic goes big now to hide the fact that they have done shit in areas where the real shit happens. now they finally can show toughness, but it hits the wrong people.

Valid poitns tbh. . Unfortunately there isn't anyway they can be sure that it wasn't abused for even one round. If they rule out people like this, it will be termed as personal liking/disliking or biasness. The bans could have been way shorter though, -1-2 months max.

2020-09-28 15:35
He immediately dc'd after? That's new
2020-09-28 15:41
did it occur to you that he didn't know what to do in that instance? it was new and no one probably knew about it and this was in 2016. however he still dc after, because he knew it was morally objectionable.
2020-09-29 06:09
I fully support the people from ESIC who put their time into researching and finding the coaches who did the exploits but what really does a 3.75 month ban for one round if misconduct accomplish? This was for one round so it was very likely accidental. It was even only the FIRST ROUND OF THE GAME like come on man
2020-09-28 14:10
probably such coaches should be happy that Valve don't make the decision. Valve said they will step in when they have all information but some of the bans could be helpful for the coaches.

you ask me?? I didn't abuse bugs. Everyone with an Integra mind calls an admin. If you aren't able to that you aren't better than a person like death.

And why would he call an admin when he didn't know about the bug, and he didn't abuse it?
2020-09-28 17:29
He knows about the bug when it happens or is it normal to have a free WH? Really what is your argument here?? If you see sth happens that may give you an advantage even by accident you call an admin to caring about the problem properly. The ESIC guy said there were cases when coaches call an admin immediately and such coaches didn't get a ban cuz they acted in the best possible way in that situation.

You sound like a Brazil who defends death. I would be scarry if I would act like that. Even when they find maybe a sprout or BIG incidents. i would never say "Just 1 round" Some cheater cheats also just 1 round and so they should never get vac banned?? no thanks.
2020-09-28 14:33
There is nothing that suggests that he encountered the bug on purpose, "Einstein"
2020-09-28 14:40
That counts for everyone. If he did nothing wrong he could speak to the admins. Did he?? nope. So no proof he didn't abuse it.
2020-09-28 14:41

#freeruggah We live in absurd times. Fakalack is being done to deal with real cheaters crawling all over our game. But people that by no fault of their own encounters a bug in game gets banned. 0.o
2020-09-28 14:56
he should have some sort of punishment but its stupid that the minimum raw punishment is 5 months, even if you used it for 1 or 7 rounds
2020-09-28 14:57
#RolfErRen Oh wait, wrong decade, wrong sport.
2020-09-28 14:59
So he accidentaly got a bug in a single round of a single game and obviously didn't use it on purpose, but is still getting punishment for something that was out of his control. What's the logic behind this decision? Respect OG btw.

He can coach them anyway,he just can't attend events,whats the problem
2020-09-28 15:41
There's absolutely no problem. The guys who got 3.75 month bans (112-115 days depending on how they count it) are only missing events held this year. Winter break ends on January 17, 2021. The shortest coach bans end on 16th-19th of January so they might as well take the ban.
2020-09-28 16:30
Interesting decision, but I understand that, hope the best for ruggah and OG.
2020-09-28 16:01
literally cheating = hE dEseRveS seCOnd CHanCe throw a t3 match for a knife skin = lifetime ban
2020-09-28 16:36
The other is cheating too, even fraud and matchmaking lol and in football its penalized with huge fines so a ban should be seen as lightly. If you throw your career away for a t3 skin then says something bout you.. And its OG that give him the 2nd chance

it happened once and he dc'd immediately, he clearly didn't abuse it. iBUYPOWER was clearly throwing the entire game, although I will say that the lifetime ban from valve was a little much, maybe 2/3 years would have sufficed.
2020-09-28 17:29
Imagine still crying about IBP, lol
2020-09-28 17:47
They should ban the heavy users of the bug for a long time. 10+ years. This should barely be a ban at all. but teams like BIG and astralis that used it every game for such a long period should get almost lifetime bans. the players for using the info should get banned for years as well.

I am critical of my own team. no cheaters should be allowed in my favorite esport
2020-09-28 17:44
Wow...punishing someone for something that was done 4 years ago. ESIC, Michal Slowinski, and Steve Dudenhoeffer are late to the party lol. Do they seriously have nothing better to do right now? There's no reason to review demos prior to 2020 because whatever happened has already happened and cannot be changed. How about they shift their focus to banning coaches that abused the spectator bug in 2020, which has affected the current year's competition. Anything else prior to 2020 should not be looked at and used to ban coaches, but rather to serve as a warning to all coaches that "Hey, we banned these coaches because they abused the bug in 2020. We won't ban anyone for something prior to the current year, but let it serve as a fair warning that you will be punished accordingly if you are found guilty of having abused this bug or any other bug that is used for an unfair advantage".

Michau said he is a freelancer admin so he has times. And the rest of your post is crying about the messenger, not the people that did sth wrong and that is very weak. Cuz The coaches are the problem not the people that expose the "crime". You are probably one of the guys that wish Snowden the death. cuz He exposed your government
2020-09-28 17:38
I'm not somebody to wish death upon others, so your accusation makes you look like an ass lol. You don't even know me in real life, so stop making assumptions.
2020-09-28 18:54
So you don't wish a punishment for snowden?? I mean you didn't deny it so ai am right. You blame the messenger not the people who did the crime. Expected from many US people.
2020-09-28 18:56
Of course Snowden should be punished. Should he be punished with a death sentence? I don't know because I'm not the one who holds a decision of that stature. You're bringing race and politics into an argument about esports. Stop getting off topic and comparing apples to oranges. I'm not going to argue with a bigot who is likely trolling, so enjoy your day good sir.

In case you seriously can't comprehend anything, my argument is that it's pointless to issue bans to coaches that abused this bug prior to 2020. Why? What is said and done cannot be changed and the results of those matches have already happened. Reviewing demos prior to 2020 and banning coaches for abusing the bug for results that are not for the current year does not change the outcome of that match / those matches or the event(s) that it occurred in. Why bother spending the time to review "old" demos when they are irrelevant to current events? It's not like banning coaches for something they did in 2019 and earlier will make any event organizer change the results of those events and re-issue payouts based or anything of the sort. Focus on the current year and make it known that past bug abuses will result in proper punishment if found guilty. This whole thing has turned into a witch hunt and with the way things are currently going, they might as well just ban every coach for at least 3 months to save themselves the time of reviewing hundreds if not thousands of demos.

banning old abusers is worth it and will improve the integrity of the game. next time people would simply know that cheating might haunt them years later. i don't see why would you complain about this tbh and there is no witchhunt going on so far. ESIC is just doing their job
2020-09-28 19:22
Hahahaha literally all EU and BR coaches. These regions cheat and exploit non stop. Doesn’t surprise me. Remember when astralis won 2 grand finals in a row vs liquid and never got banned for it due to valves incompetence. Sad
2020-09-28 17:52
Remember when BIG openly used jump-crouch bug at fkin MAJOR and Valve did nothing? Teams had to ban its usage themselves.
2020-09-28 19:02
They beat liquid on lan where this coaching bug was not possible
2020-09-28 23:04
So now we're getting a lecture on how to be all pure and innocent from NA? Really? When NA practially wrote the book on csgo scandals. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counter-Strike_mat..
2020-09-28 23:55
Ruggah shouldn't be banned
2020-09-28 19:33
are you Christian? no I'm Jesper
2020-09-28 20:25
Wait why are coaches getting banned for abusing bug from " their game " , just to remind u that BIG used jumping bug in 2017 and didnt get banned or suspended for it,that jump bug also gave them a lot of unfair advantages.
