HUNDEN unveils evidence of Heroic players’ involvement in abusing the coaching bug
Former coach of Heroic Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen has unveiled evidence proving his statement about the players being aware of him using the bug for getting information about opponents’ location. The materials were published by the Danish sport.tv2.dk.
One of the proofs was the dialogue between Petersen and ex Heroic player Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen, in which the latter confirms the fact that all the members of the roster were aware of the bug abuse. "Everyone on our team knew it. Maybe not the first time. But after. Everyone knew that," sport.tv2.dk quotes niko.
It is worth reminding that in the proven cases of the bug abuse, HUNDEN was the leader of the roster that featured Martin "stavn" Lund, Casper "cadiaN" Møller, René "TeSeS" Madsen, Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen, and Johannes "b0RUP" Borup.
Also, Petersen provided server logs of the match between Heroic and Team Spirit, which, according to the information, confirm TeSeS' direct involvement in the abuse of the spectator bug. According to HUNDEN, only this player could help him take advantage of the vulnerability in the right place. It is reported that these logs were checked by experts who are involved in investigating the coaching bug problem on the professional scene.
Petersen handed all the materials to the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), which must decide whether this evidence is sufficient to initiate an investigation, and impose sanctions against the players involved.
It should be added that the statement of the former Heroic coach was commented on by Heroic CEO Joachim Haraldsen, who does not consider the published information sufficient to accuse the players. "I have honestly had enough of HUNDEN's attacks on all the boys he has coached. I think he should start growing up and take responsibility for what he did," the CEO of Heroic said.
Petersen's decision to change his statements about his players not being involved in abusing the coaching bug had been preceded by the proceedings with Heroic accusing him of sharing confidential information about the team with third parties. The ESIC investigation, the details of which were revealed in a recent interview by the head of the Commission, Ian Smith, resulted in a two-year ban for the Danish specialist.
