In a first for mobile esports in India, a professional Clash Royale player: Jimit ‘Jimit’ Bhatt has been banned from competing professionally for 1 year by the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC).
The player was found to be violating Supercell’s terms of service, ESL India Premiership rules, as well as, the ESIC code of conduct after his game account was being used by “multiple players at various times over the past month”.
Evidence from Supercell, as well as, other video evidence was used by ESIC to confirm Jimit’s breach of rules and regulations.
As a result of his actions, Jimit will not be allowed to compete in the ESL India Premiership as well as esport events hosted by all ESIC members until May 23, 2020.
Account sharing is a practice in Clash Royale which allows abusers to farm magnitudes of in-game rewards, qualifications, ranking points, etc. As stated above, these actions violate Supercell’s terms of services.
This is not the first time a player has been banned from the ESL India Premiership. Earlier in 2017, Nikhil “Forsaken” Kumawat was banned after he was found violating the ESIC code of conduct in the ESL India Premiership.
