ESIC Bans.

As all of you know, ESIC have released a statement on 5 of our members and have given them a year ban for "Betting Related Offences".
Those being:
JD/The Real Goat

The Statement revealed it "issued the Offending Parties with Notices of Charge detailing the offense, ban applied and appeal mechanisms available to them". What was stated by ESIC is wrong as no Rooster member was and still has not been emailed by ESIC, which led us to find out the bans via HLTV, while doing veto's for a match. (if we had gotten emails prior, it would of allowed us to acquire subs)

But, as there is a lot of misconception with the recent statement we are here to clear some things up. These players did indeed bet during the MDL Season, not only on other matches, but on themselves to win. They tried their hardest and put 100% into every game they played bet or no bet, not a single match was ever fixed, there was no conspiring, there's no proof of any throwing and this wasn't really explained in the ESIC statement which led to hate towards our players.

At the time these players did not educate themselves in proper rulings into the season about betting on games, all they knew was throwing being a no go, as it is wrong morally and of course it is not allowed in any sport as it is punishable by law. (which is their fault)

Ultimately, all 5 players deeply regret the decision they have made, realise it was a mistake and the small amount they won was NOT worth the year ban they have received. We expect other players learn from the mistake and ensure they don't bet on games in there league as it is not worth it. We hope to get into contact with ESIC about the situation. BTW also wanna give a massive shout out to all our fans who have backed us and supported us. BIG LOVE TO YOU ALL <3

Rooster 1 and 2 will be back.
