Gambit Youngsters suspended F_1N

Gambit Youngsters coach Ivan "F_1N" Kochugov is suspended from work with the team. The organization reported this after his public recognition in the use of the observer mode bug.

Kochugov stated that he used the bug only once in a match against AGO on February 17, 2020. He also drew attention to the fact that all Gambit Youngsters trophies were obtained in a fair fight.

The coach will remain out of the team until the end of the investigation of the Commission on honesty in eSports. However, representatives of Gambit Youngsters have launched their own investigation.

F_1N was not the first coach to admit the use of bug. Earlier it was done by Allan "Rejin" Petersen from mousesports, as well as Faruk "pita" Pita, who worked at NiP. ESIC encouraged all coaches who have ever used a bug to follow their example until September 13. In the case of a frank confession, which does not have to be made publicly, the penalty will be reduced.
