Heroic players go free; ESIC release their final report

The Esports Integrity Commission has issued their final findings in the case between HUNDEN and the Danish team.

The result of The Esports Integrity Commission’s (ESIC) report in the investigation into alleged complicity of Heroic players in spectator bug exploit has come forward this Monday. The report emerges 43 days after ESIC began their investigation, due to them receiving potential damaging evidence from Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen.

The esports watchdog has come to the conclusion that neither of the current Heroic players in Rene “TeSeS” Madsen, Casper “cadiaN” Møller, Martin “stavn” Lund, and the current MAD Lions player Johannes “b0RUP” Borup are guilty in any of the alleged offences.

- Upon investigating the conduct of these individuals, ESIC was unable to find anywhere near enough evidence to reasonably conclude that these four players were guilty of any offence under the ESIC Integrity Program

(…) Accordingly, ESIC concludes that these individuals are to be deemed innocent of the conduct which are the subject of Mr. Petersen’s allegations, ESIC writes in their report.

The evidence and information that HUNDEN provided ESIC was:

  • A written statement from Mr. Petersen laying out his allegations.

  • Screenshots of text and messenger conversations with various individuals related to the team.

  • Screenshots of a contemporaneous text conversation with an anonymous individual known as “Robert” around the time of the original spectator bug bans of September 2020.

  • A voice recording and transcripts of Mr. Petersen’s conversation with Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen (“Mr. Kristensen”).

  • A Non-Disclosure Agreement (unsigned) relating to the spectator bug incident that would, if signed, have prohibited the players from disclosing information publicly about the incident
