mousesports coach confessed of using the bug in 2017-18
mousesports coach Allan "Rejin" Petersen confessed of using the coach exploits in 2017 and 2018, when he was a mentor of Tricked. His current team suspended him from work until the completion of a full investigation after that.
In his statement, Petersen noted that he used the bug on four maps in four games: against HAVU and 3DMAX in November 2018, and against pro100 in December 2017 and December 2018. All these meetings Tricked won. Rejin separately stressed that he had never used the bug in the mousesports.
During ESL Road to Rio (EU), I encountered a “coaching” bug that hadn't happened to me for a long period of time. Meaning I thought the bug was fixed. I then informed the admin ‘Michau’ about that bug and told him it still exists. This led to the investigation that we all know today.
It then takes me back to a period that I deeply regret, when I knew I had totally screwed up when I was coaching Tricked in 2017-2018.
I found out about the bug by accident, that if you were the first on the server and wrote coach ct/t you could get stuck.
Unfortunately, I used this bug at the time and I take full responsibility for my actions and there is absolutely no excuse for that.
One thing I can say for sure is that the players did NOT know, under any circumstances, that I was using this bug. Neither did Tricked as an organisation or Mousesports.
I have been working with Michau, behind closed doors, and I still am, to check all my demos.
After investigations, we have found that I’ve been using it for at least 4 matches:

That’s also why I didn't come forward earlier, as I wanted all the facts straight and empty my bag. I do not wish to hide in the shadows. I regret it so much and wish I would have acted differently.
I have NEVER used the bug or anything else during my time at Mousesports, and Michau has already watched and analyzed my demos throughout my time with the team.
I will take my punishment and assume the consequences, only hoping that I can do my best to deserve a second chance in the future.
I am truly sorry and I would like to apologize to the teams, all the fans out there, the whole community, Mousesports, the players, my family and friends. And last, Morten (CEO) from Tricked Esport.
Petersen became the second coach who publicly admitted to using the bug. Earlier a similar statement was made by former NiP coach Faruk "pita" Pita.
On September 4, the eSports Integrity Commission announced a major investigation that will examine all match records from 2016. Until September 13, all coaches who used the bug have the opportunity to confess themselves, which should facilitate the punishment. In the future, all appeals will be considered by an independent disciplinary commission.
