Competitive Ruling: CSUF Player
UMass used a ringer in College Season play and has been disqualified
It was determined that a Andrew “Deathwalker222” Wong, a UMass student, competed under Fabian “EU Red” Suri-Payer’s account during their Round 5 loss against McMaster. When presented with evidence, the involved players and team managers confessed to the incident.
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.
188.8.131.52 Ringing. Playing under another player’s account or soliciting, inducing, encouraging or directing someone else to play under another player’s account.
UMass has violated rule 184.108.40.206 of the College Season.
