ENCE have issued a statement that their coach Slaava “Twista” Räsänen has suspended until further notice for one time usage of the coaching bug back in 2017.
The org contacted Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) to investigate their coach’s involvement in the matter and decided to act that the Finnish Coach veteran used the infamous bug.
As the incident happened in 2017, it mostly relates to his time at iGame.com where he transitioned from a player to coach in late 2016.
It is still unknown to what extent he had exploited the bug.
