In a new finding, renowned esports journalist, Dexerto’s Richard Lewis has found documents that prove that Heroic did indeed try to make the roster sign an NDA. This confirms the allegations made by HUNDEN just a few weeks ago after being banned by the ESIC, where he claimed that the org tried to make him sign an NDA along with the players.
Apparently, the NDA would prevent the players and the coach from talking about any cheating allegations or even the use of the Bug for 15 years and would result in a half a million dollar fine if breached.
This COMPLETELY contradicts the claims made by the coach that he worked off his own accord when he was first found guilty, as it is clear that the organisation knew about it every step of the way. In addition, the Heroic org never tried to come forth themselves even after knowing about such a bug, and the fact that his team made use of it.
What is more as per the report, is that HUNDEN and the Chief Gaming Officer of Heroic, Erik Askered can be seen conversing about the bug and the punishment and how the coach was seemingly ‘taking a bullet for the team and would be remembered for his actions.
Heroic also tried to keep HUNDEN involved as a coach as much as possible while he served his ESIC ban and were even willing to let him coach them for non-ESIC sanctioned events. These new findings absolutely reek of zero competitive integrity by Heroic and prove that they were doing their level best to keep the Bug in play without anyone knowing. Heroic already seem to be in trouble as they lost all their sponsors recently.
This is the first claim of HUNDEN that’s come true, after he first accused players ‘niko’ and ‘TeSeS’ of knowing about the bug, which is still under investigation by the ESIC.
