ESIC have completed their investigation of Nicolai ‘HUNDEN’ Petersen’s latest claims regarding the coach bug abuse. In his new claims ‘HUNDEN’ claimed that teammates Nikolaj ‘niko’ Kristensen and Rene ‘TeSeS’ Madsen were aware of his use of the bug and that they helped him use it during games.

The investigation lasted longer than a month, with the ESIC going through match logs and TeamSpeak logs. In the findings, the members of Heroic – Casper ‘cadiaN’ Moller, Rene ‘TeSeS’ Madsen, Martin ‘stavn’ Lund and Johannes ‘b0RUP’ Borup were cleared of all charges as they had no involvement in the usage of the coach bug by ‘HUNDEN’.

While ex-Heroic and current OG player, niko, received a light punishment as he admitted to the guilt as well as the special circumstances in which he was made complicit in the coach bug abuse. niko suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Asperger’s syndrome. ‘HUNDEN’ knew of this and manipulated niko heavily, knowing he would trust him as he had been a teammate and an individual he trusted for so long.

As per the disciplinary punishment, niko will receive:

1. A severe public reprimand for his behaviour

2. A warning as to future conduct with severe consequences for any future breach of the ESIC Integrity Program

3. Mandatory attendance at two one on one education sessions with the ESIC Commissioner of minimum 30 mins duration each

4. A minimum 15-minute check in with the Commissioner every month for a minimum of six months to ensure he has understood and is complying with the ESIC Integrity Program and to offer him support for any issues he might be having in this respect

If he fails to comply, niko will receive a 30-day ban at ESIC commissioned events.

As for the claims that ‘TeSeS’ knowingly boosted HUNDEN in a bugged position, ESIC found no evidence of TeSeS knowing what he was doing, as he didnt have an idea of the motive and just did what his coach asked him to do.
