Competitive Ruling: Houlow and Dratx
Two players who have already received in-game bans have played at PEL Contenders online qualifiers. Both players have been suspended from competitive PUBG due to the competitive ruling.
After a thorough investigation, the PUBG anti-cheat team has concluded that two players from team “Be Stronger” have created new Steam accounts to play at PEL Contenders online qualifiers after receiving in-game ban for using an unauthorized program severely damaging the integrity of the game of PUBG.
- • “kapzd”, previously known as “Houlow”, has received three years of suspension from all competition on January 7th 2019. You can find previous competitive ruling on Houlow from HERE.
- • “silva-_”, previously known as “Dratx”, has received in-game ban for using an unauthorized program on his previous account.
Both players will be suspended from competitive PUBG for the following duration:
- • “kapzd”, previously known as “Houlow”: lifetime competitive ban for registering for PEL Contenders online qualifiers with a new account despite an earlier competitive ruling of 3-year ban.
- • “silva-_”, previously known as “dratx”: 2-year competitive ban from January 12, 2019 for registering for PEL Contenders online qualifiers with a new account despite an earlier in-game ban.
Pro players found to have been banned in-game due to the use of unauthorized programs are suspended from competitive play for a minimum of one year to a maximum of a lifetime.
Pro players found to have cheated in a professional game will be suspended from competitive play for a minimum of three years to a maximum of a lifetime.
Any organization or team member in full knowledge of the cheating activities of any of their team players will receive a penalty that is equivalent to that of the players who has directly engaged in those cheating activities.
All esports suspensions begin on the date of completion of an official league investigation.
Comprehensive guidelines for a global penalty system will be released at a later date.
