A statement released by Vexed Gaming reads as :
“The esports scene is in rapid growth and it has evolved to become highly professionalised,” said Vexed COO Mark “Princess” Weller.
“However, the consequences of cheating have always been a grey area, but with the latest ESL announcement on the subject we believe this to be a first step towards a more transparent and unified rule set on the cheating problems.
“KQLY is very passionate and dedicated to the game and the professional scene – we’re looking forward to working with him.”
