NAVI Wild Rift team has been banned from the WREC 2022 for account sharing


NAVI has been fined for breaking one of Wild Rift Esports EMEA’s Global Competition Policies, according to an official Wild Rift Esports EMEA Twitter tweet. NAVI’s coach and substitute player Vladimir “NAVI OSPREAY”Natus Vincere (NAVI) has been disqualified from the League of Legends: Wild Rift Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Championship (WREC) 2022 after breaking the account sharing rule, colloquially known as “Ringing.”

The team’s head coach was allegedly caught sharing his account with a third party to compete in the event, according to an official statement from the tournament organizer.

As a result, NAVI is no longer permitted to compete in the WREC Last Chance Qualifier. Its professional players will be barred from all official Wild Rift esports tournaments for three months, while its coach will be barred for six months.

In the midst of WREC 2022, NAVI’s Wild Rift coach is guilty of ringing. 

Gonchar was discovered sharing his account during the team’s WREC 2022 match against VIV Esports on March 13th, according to the report.

NAVI’s Wild Rift Pro Players – Hoang “Phi” Thi, Cezar “Vex” Nedelcu, Wahil “YeQiu” Hassani, Kirill “Hydro” Sitnikov, and Frederik “Schow” Morthorst – will be banned from all official Wild Rift esports events for three months, while their coach OSPREAY will be banned for six months. 

In the Wild Rift esports scene, NAVI has struggled to gain traction. Last year’s official Wild Rift Circuit for the EMEA region, the Wild Rift: Origin Series 2021, saw the squad finish fifth. NAVI may miss out on qualifying for the forthcoming Wild Rift Icons Global Championship 2022 due to the team’s penalty and inability to compete in official Wild Rift competitions.
