Earlier today, Valve released a ban wave in SEA which saw multiple abusive players getting banned from Dota 2 matchmaking.

Unfortunately, some of the most prominent SEA Dota 2 Pro Players including Fnatic’s carry Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon, as well as TNC duo Kim "Gabbi" Villafuerte and Timothy "Tims" Randrup.

Although Valve did not respond to these bans, it looks like they were issued inadvertently, as they were rescinded by the organization shortly. 

With Fnatic and TNC Predator competing at DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major, a ban here would have been devastating for the hopes of the SEA region.
