Valve reduce Rejin's Major ban following appeal

Allan "⁠Rejin⁠" Petersen has successfully appealed his coaching bug ban and will be allowed to participate in Majors in the second half of 2024.

Rejin originally received a permanent Major ban in 2021 for seven instances of use of the coaching bug

Danish ex-coach Rejin will be allowed to participate in Valve-sponsored competitions again from the second 2024 Major after his ban for use of the coaching bug was reduced to five Majors.

This is a result of the 35-year-old's successful appeal with the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), in which he "substantiated that the extent of [his] bug exploitation was not as initially calculated." This appeal was accepted by Valve, according to the regulatory body.

Rejin was banned by ESIC in September 2020 after he was found to have used the coaching bug, which in some situations allowed coaches to gain an unfair advantage, in seven instances.

ESIC used so-called "demerit points" to determine the length of their coaching bans, a value that was based on the number of matches and rounds in which the bug was used and that Valve later took over to issue Major bans of varying lengths.

Rejin was originally assigned eight points for his offenses, enough to receive a permanent Major ban. This has now been revised to five points and five Majors following the appeal, which means his ban will expire following the conclusion of PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen in March.

Best known for his time in MOUZ, which ended as a result of his ban in late 2020, Rejin has served in several different staff roles in MAD Lions, Entropiq, and Endpoint. Since June he has served as the Sports Director of Danish organization Sashi.

a lot of danes in CS, therefore also a lot of coaches it's damn near impossible to find a coach who was active back then but didn't use the coach bug, so imo it really just boils to a coincidence where two coaches bear the same lastname

Valve care. Not t tell them they are wrong. No payer and no coach who used bug should play. If that meant CSGO scene collapses then I am fine with it. Fuck double standards.

Swag didn’t use a bug to win, he got paid to throw a match in a time where CSGO wasn’t that big of a deal and that got him permanently banned.

Stealing 100 bux is the same as stealing 10000000 bux. It's a theft. The fact that CSGO wasn't that big when he commited a crime does change what he did. I am glad his punishment is so severe. It should be a clear message and actual deterrent to others.

Okay you have to be trolling to say that a kid shouldn’t be forgiven for the mistake he made when he was 17. And CSGO in 2014 and CSGO in 2023 are completely different. Nobody in 2014 thought CS would be as big as it is today. Anybody would have thrown the game back in the day like: “What? I can make 2k USD just from throwing one game? Hell yeah.” That was literally 1/5th of the tournament’s prize pool. You’re either a child, immature, or trolling.

Cheating and match-fixing isn't technically the same but gives one of the teams an unfair advantage so imo they should be treated the same way.
