Competitive Ruling: University of Minnesota Duluth

UMD used a ringer in College Season play and has been disqualified

  • Link Copied

TL;DR

  • UMDads from the University of Minnesota Duluth had a player not on their Active Roster share the account of one of their players in an official College Season match against TSUES.
  • As a result, the school, the rostered players, and the team’s manager are disqualified from the 2020 College Season and suspended for the rest of the season.

CONTEXT

It was determined that a UMD player not on the team’s Active Roster was playing on Mitchell “Im a babe 69” Bjellos’s account during their Round 2 match against TSUES. Ringing is a serious offense. It misleads opponents who have prepared for the match, it circumvents roster rules meant to create a fair playing field, and it breaks trust with fans, players, and the league itself.
