Schade Halt -team disqualified from Elisa Invitational tournament
As a tournament operator, we take integrity concerns very seriously as we continue to build and develop our tournament circuit in CS:GO. Elisa Esports has been informed about suspicious behavior in two of its matches Schade Halt vs 00 Prospects that was played on 23.8.2022 and Schade Halt vs Yodagus that was played on 29.8.2022. Both matches were shown at twitch.tv/elisaesports. The suspicion was reported by a trusted third-party integrity partner.
The suspicion indicates that two match outcomes were manipulated by one competing team, Schade Halt. This is against our competition policies and thereby the matching team has been disqualified for all Elisa Invitational matches.
The suspicion has been reported to the Finnish authorities who will be in charge of the further actions regarding the case.
We are also sharing the information provided to us with other tournament operators and ESIC.
