asap handed 12-month ban over fake ID submission

The Australian player attempted to sign up for a 2v2 competition that had a minimum age requirement of 18.

Rooster player Tyson "⁠asap⁠" Paterson has been banned from all ESL, DreamHack and ESEA tournaments for 12 months after providing false identification documents in order to circumvent an age restriction in a 2v2 tournament hosted by ESL Australia on November 28, it was announced on Friday.

asap, 17, attempted to sign up for the tournament despite not meeting its minimum age requirement of 18. With the player having previously competed in tournaments in which his age was stated as 17, ESL initiated a verification process and then requested proof of the date-of-birth that was provided.

Rooster lose another player to a lengthy ban

"To verify the date-of-birth, photo ID was requested, to which a falsified ID document was submitted to ESL," the tournament organiser explained. "ESL’s request for video material to verify the authenticity of the ID document was denied.

"Following the gathering of the falsified document and additional information, the player was informed about a possible suspension. The player then went on to send a video of the real ID and admitted that he was indeed 17 and after some further talking he admitted that he had sent in a false ID to try and get around the 18+ restriction."

The severity of the punishment was determined on recommendation from the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), ESL has said.

The ban is the latest blow for the Oceanic Counter-Strike scene, which in October saw seven MDL players, including two teammates of asap's, Akram "⁠ADK⁠" Smida and Corey "⁠nettik⁠" Browne, slapped with 12-month bans by ESIC for placing bets on the ESEA league and other CS:GO matches.

Rooster were on December 1 removed from the Oceanic division of DreamHack Masters Winter due to an "ongoing investigation" into one of the team's players, whose name was not revealed at the time. With ADK and nettik already suspended, the team lost the core of the lineup that qualified for the tournament and were replaced by Chiefs.

Of course they had potential, I'm not saying that. You can call me what you want, the team was a meme team because they didn't take the game seriously. They didn't really practice or the like. They were just good players banded together. Before insulting someone, try understanding the Australian scene first.

Well to be fair most legitimate sports have firm rules against professional players betting on the sport they play. More than anything it's to prevent a situation that could be perceived as fixing and it makes penalising suspected fixing easy, place a bet and get banned, regardless of the claimed reason for the bet. 1 year for a fake id. to circumvent an age restriction is obscene though imo.

Yeah I don't agree with false identification to buy stuff you shouldn't or whatever, but to enter a CSGO tournament - a 16 rated game - it is a bit harsh. I understand from Red Bull's perspective with their sponsors or whatever but still a big issue for the guy

It's particularly a big issue if you were to participate in a tournament with false identification and actually won prizemoney on false pretenses... at least here in Denmark. You could get a 2 year+ prison sentence if you were 18

2020-12-18 13:59
considering Rooster appeared to be mostly from Sydney area, that's considered New South Whales (NSW). using a fake id or changing your ID to present false information is the same as committing identity theft. A team with 2-3 players under the age of 18, using betting sites that require 18+, throwing and fixing matches. To now providing false id to circumvent 18+ rules an additional time, 12 month ban is a slap on the wrist. taken from Youth Law Australia Fake IDs can also be used to commit more serious crimes involving fraud and identity theft. Part 4AB of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) establishes that it is a criminal offence to deal and/or possess identification information with the intention of committing, or assisting with, an indictable offence. Maximum penalties associated with these crimes are 2 years imprisonment (if heard in the Local Court) and up to 10 years imprisonment (if heard in the District Court).

there is no misinformation. they even added the link for betting and match fixing in this announcement, i mean it was highlighted to be clicked. hltv.org/news/30512/esic-issues-bans-to-.. 2 players from the active Rooster line up 3 players from Roosters 2 who were moved out of the active roosters line up when a match fixing scandal took place. hltv.org/news/27615/six-people-arrested-.. Athletico folded and disappeared over night. Rooster picked up ADK and other Athletico players It's just deductive reasoning, with verification and evidence to boot. I don't see where the misinformation is coming from, when this article covered it all.

Nettik was still the only underage player to bet and they still didn't matchfix, they got banned for betting in their own matches (betting on their own team to win, not on the other team and therefore not fixing)

It is misinformation because they are only guilty of placing a bet, not throwing or match fixing. You should try actually reading the article you linked. Also, the second link is completely unrelated. The players in the second link were due for court earlier this year to face criminal charges, no further news has been reported but presumably there's a delay because of the shutdowns in Victoria.

The following seven players have been slapped with 12-months bans by ESIC: Australia Stephen "⁠stvn⁠" Anastasi Australia Akram "⁠ADK⁠" Smida Australia Daryl "⁠Mayker⁠" May New Zealand Corey "⁠nettik⁠" Browne Australia Damian "⁠JD⁠" Simonovic Australia Carlos "⁠Rackem⁠" Jefferys Australia Joshua "⁠jhd⁠" Hough-Devine In closing, ESIC stated that it is still in the process of probing further breaches of their Anti-Corruption Code within MDL in both Australia and North America, including match-fixing behaviour. including match-fixing behaviour. i don't get the misinformation?

The misinformation is you saying that Rooster have '2-3 players throwing and match fixing'. The players you listed have received bans for placing bets, not throwing or match fixing. Whilst ESIC have said they're also investigating match fixing, they haven't named any of the players under investigation and it's extremely clear from their statement that it's fewer cases. You're on a witch hunt.

i think spastic is force buying at every local lan in brisbane and bottom fragging but you'd know better. Victoria has more harsh laws in place than NSW. for context. In Victoria, making, using or supplying identification information carries a maximum penalty of 5 years imprisonment. What is Identification Information? “Identification information” means information relating to a person (whether living or dead, or real or fictitious) that is capable of being used (whether alone or in conjunction with other information) to identify, or purportedly identify, the person, being information such as: a name, address, date of birth or place of birth; so if they aren't NSW or QLD and the Victorian police are involved, 5 years is more than 2. either way 12 month ban from cs is a slap on the wrist compared to other alternatives.

To people saying ban until birthday it's because he falsified a legal document and attempted to mislead them. That is the issue, not playing under the age of 18. It's a matter of integrity and following the terms and conditions. It's a stupid rule but follow the rules.
