Following a lengthy investigation, OMEGA Esports is finally out of the woods!
In an announcement posted by Omega, the organization is now able to participate in the DPC Spring Season. This comes after Omega appealed their situation which was followed through with their own investigation.
“[W]e have terminated the contract of Chris “CTY” Maldo. Carrying out the decision of Valve, we have ended the contracts of Prince “Prince” Daculan, and Ryniel “Zenki” Calvez,” read the team’s announcement.
“Furthermore, Valve representatives have accepted our appeal to lift the ban on our organization, and has allowed us to join the DOTA Pro Circuit Spring Season and other Valve-sponsored events,” the statement continued.
Additionally, the organization also promised that they will be doubling their internal process for future security.
“Smart Omega will also strengthen its internal processes to prevent these kinds of incidents from happening in the future,” they said.
Weeks ago, the organization fell into a deep issue following a permanent ban dropped by Valve. According to Valve, the organization was engaging in match-fixing activities which were frowned upon in the industry.
With this favorable reversal for Omega, only its players remain banned in all Valve-sanctioned events.
