Since ESIC announced that it would be giving a ‘Confession Period’ of 10 days to all offenders who have abused the CS:GO spectator bug many coaches are coming forward with the admission of their wrongdoings. After former NiP coach Faruk "pita" Pita came clean current mousesports head coach Allan "Rejin" Petersen has also put out a public statement admitting the use of the spectator bug during his time with Tricked between 2017-2018.
Via his public statement, Rejin has revealed the instances when he had used the spectator bug confirming that he never did it with mousesports and that none of the players were aware of him using the exploit. Following his confession mousesports released a notice from their side announcing Rejin’s suspension from all his duties until the full investigation had been concluded.
Rejin Confesses Using The Spectator Bug
Rejin in his statement confessed that he had used the spectator bug multiple times during 2017-2018 when he was coaching the Danish CS:GO team Tricked Esports. While expressing his guilt for having used the exploit and taking complete responsibility for his actions Rejin went on to list out each instance when he had used the bug, something he had been working on with Michau (Michal Slowinski) behind closed doors.
Third map (Train) against HAVU during Kalashnikov CUP.
First map (Inferno) against 3DMAX during United Masters League.
First map (Cache) against pro100 during Rivalry.gg Rising Stars.
Second map (Mirage) against pro100 during LOOT.BET Cup 2 - cs_summit 2 Qualifier.
Rejin went on to further admit that during ESL Road to Rio he encountered the same bug after a long period of time, he was surprised because he thought it had been fixed. However, this time around he did not cheat instead he informed the admin (Michau) about the spectator bug.
He also confirmed from his side that none of the players were aware of him using the spectator bug. “One thing I can say for sure is that the players did NOT know, under any circumstances, that I was using this bug. Neither did Tricked as an organisation or Mousesports.”
Rejin apologised for his actions and said that hiding in the shadows was never his intention and that he did not come forward before as he wanted to collect all the evidence and empty his bags.
“I will take my punishment and assume the consequences, only hoping that I can do my best to deserve a second chance in the future.”
His confession was followed by mousesports once again confirming that Rejin never used the bug while working with them and that none of their players were aware of his actions. They went on to announce that Rejin had been suspended from all his duties until the full investigation concludes.
Shortly after Gambit Youngsters current coach Ivan “F_1N” Kochugov also came forward with his confession to having used the spectator bug once on 17th February 2020 against AGO at OGA Counter Pit Season 7. He used the bug on the first map (Dust 2) and it was the only time that he had used it after having encountered it for the first time ever.
In total three coaches have now come clean of their wrongdoings publicly as the ‘Confession Period’ set by ESIC comes to an end on 13th September.
