WRTT out, ESC to face NiP in THOR
The THOR Open organisers have announced that WRTT have been disqualified from this weekend's qualifier, with ESC Gaming moving on to the semi-finals.
After WRTT's 16-0 and 16-11 victories against ESC Gaming and Ninjas in Pyjamas, respectively, in the sixth qualifier for THOR Open, questions were immediately raised about the legitimacy of the Swedish team's actions.
After those matches, ESC star Filip "Neo" Kubski took to Facebook to say that WRTT were cheating, with the Polish team and NiP both filing a protest with the THOR Open organisers.
Having reviewed all rounds played by WRTT throughout the tournament, the admins could not find any wrongdoing on the Swedish team's part; however, after watching the VOD from Jesper "jw" Wecksell, who was streaming through Twitch.tv, they came across something very suspicious.
Some of those who were following Wecksell's stream asked the Swedish player to search for specific files on his computer in order to check if he had installed some cheating program.
When he typed 'organner', a search result came up, and with it what seemed to be the order confirmation of a cheating software.
Wecksell immediately deleted the VOD from Twitch.tv's website, but it can still be viewed by going here.
Based on this, the THOR Open admins decided to disqualify WRTT and send ESC Gaming to the semi-finals, in which they will meet NiP.
The match between those two teams will be played on Monday at 19:00, with the winner due to meet VeryGames.
The French giants claim that they will be unable to play the final before DreamHack Winter, so that match will most likely be played only after the Swedish event.
