Video: ceh9 ghosting versus AGAiN?
After the second map in the quarter-final between Natus Vincere and AGAiN, a dispute was filed that the Ukrainians had been ghosting by looking at the big screen in the Kiev CyberSport Arena.
Some of you might already have seen the video with Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas discussing with the tournament admins and Sergey "starix" Ischuk and Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko, claiming that the Ukrainians had ghosted on second map de_nuke. For those who have not seen it, click here.
We have come into possession of the video presented to the tournament admins, which is from the last round on de_nuke, where Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko upon getting killed allegedly looks at the big screen behind him to gather info about the positions of AGAiN, looks to his left and starts talking and continues to look at the big screen. Judge for yourself by hitting play on the video below.
The Ukrainians ended up winning the quarter-final 2-1 and moved into the semi-finals, where they will take on fnatic.
Tournament admins had already given Na´Vi two penalties for rough language, which the rulebook dictates players can't use. After the second map against AGAiN, the Ukrainans supposedly got one more warning for rude expressions. After being presented with the video, tournament admins gave one more penalty to Na´Vi, while AGAiN got one for rough language.
The penalties will supposedly have effect on the prize money the teams end up winning, how much one penalty will deduct is not known.
