Heroic has been made aware of ESL and Dreamhack collectively issuing a 12-month ban, due to Nicolai “Hunden” Petersen using a visual exploit during a few rounds earlier this year during the Dreamhack Masters Malmö tournament.
The information has also been forwarded to ESIC and Valve, where the latter has chosen not to act on it.
As we are yet to review the evidence in this matter we currently have no comments. An internal investigation was started today, at 21.32, when we received the notification from Dreamhack representative Mark Winther.
All questions will be answered at a later point.
