"Very high profile people will be affected". ESIC confirms working on new coaching bug report

The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has confirmed an inside story previously published in the media about a new investigation into the abuse of the so-called coaching bug on the professional scene. This was reported by Dust2.us, citing a statement by ESIC Director of Global Strategy & Partnerships Stephen Hanna, which he made at a public summit in London.

In his speech, Hanna noted that a "very substantial class of people and very high profile people [will] be affected" for using the bug. At the same time, he did not name the exact dates for the publication of the report, which, according to various reports, should be unveiled prior to PGL Major Antwerp 2022, that is, before May 9.

Hanna also opened up about ESIC's interaction with Valve. According to him, the communication between the companies is difficult because the game developer does not intend to significantly interfere in the regulation of the competitive scene. He added that now Valve is not willing to revise the permanent bans for participation in their events for some coaches, who appeared in the first report of the Commission a year and a half ago.

After the initial publication of the information about the new upcoming ESIC investigation into coaches who abused the vulnerability of the game, the names of some specialists who might be mentioned in the final report of the Commission appeared in the media. In particular, Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel and Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu were named among the coaches to abuse the bug.
