epic31 - Rainbow Six Siege Results Update

In light of recent confirmation that Team 86 fielded an underage player during their epic31 games we have removed their win from our records and the 2nd and 3rd place teams are now listed as 1st and 2nd places respectively. 

While we recognise that we need to do a better job for our future checks (which would have been better at a physical event), it does not change the fact that the team broke the rules of our last tournament. Our rules on underage players for the Rainbow Six Siege tournament are made very clear at all stages so we have every reason to believe this action was intentional. 

As tournament prizes were paid out immediately after the event, our ability to recall the prize money at this stage is limited, all we can do is appeal to Team 86 to do the right thing and contact us to return their prize money which we will then redistribute to the new winners correctly. We will await contact from the team to decide on any future penalties to be applied to the team and/or other individuals in Team 86 for our events. 

06/01/21 Update

As we have not heard back from the team, we have decided to apply bans to the next event to all members of the team. The player who was underage for the event will remain banned for 12 months from today's date.
