Chiefs replace Rooster in DreamHack Masters Winter Oceania

Yaman "⁠yam⁠" Ergenekon's side received a last-minute invitation after placing second in the closed qualifier.

Chiefs will replace Rooster in the Oceanic division of DreamHack Masters Winter, the tournament organiser has announced. The decision comes amid an "ongoing investigation" by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) surrounding one of the players on the Australian team, who in October saw two other team members banned for "betting-related offences".

Akram "⁠ADK⁠" Smida and Corey "⁠nettik⁠" Browne were among the seven MDL Australia players slapped with 12-month bans by the esports watchdog for placing bets on the ESEA league and other CS:GO matches. The suspensions were announced as part of the initial findings of ESIC's joint investigation with ESEA into "multiple instances of breaches" of ESIC's Anti-Corruption Code within MDL.

yam and company have replaced Rooster in DreamHack Masters Winter

On recommendation from ESIC, DreamHack decided to suspend the player who is under investigation, whose name has not yet been revealed, leaving Rooster without the core of the roster that had qualified for the DreamHack tournament by beating Chiefs in the final.

yam's side will face off against Renegades in their opening match on Tuesday at 07:30 . The tournament will run from December 1-6 and will feature just four teams, who will compete in a double-elimination bracket for their share of a $15,000 prize pool.
