Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia Denies Abusing The Coaching Spectator Bug

While the chaos in CS:GO scene due to coaching spectator bug exploit discovery continues, Brazilian professional Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia released a Twitlonger post that expresses his thoughts and feelings regarding the recent 6-months ban he received. dead has been banned for six months by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) for using the bug in one round during ESL One: Road to Rio — North America. Another two-event ban was also applied by Beyond the Summit as he was found to do the same in cs_summit 6 event.

Here are his words below.

“Firstly, I would like to apologize to my teammates, fans, supporters and the org for the situation that snowballed into disappointment, toxicity and hate towards them and I don’t think that’s fair.

After talking to @ ESIC about appealing, they shared their point of view, and their view was pretty clear: “if you had the chance to disconnect and you didn’t, you put yourself in a position that goes against the integrity of the game “.

When you watch to the clips I was involved in, you can see that no harm or info was given.

I think they are right on their thinking process and yes, I could’ve just disconnected, like I did in some cases. Therefore, I accept the suspension I was given. 6 months which started on August 31st, so I still have around 5 months to go.

Once more, I am sorry for the disappointment I’ve caused, and thanks for the messages from people who don’t know me, and from the ones who do and know my entire journey on esports.

I’ve never did anything against the integrity of the game.

Unfortunately, it will always be my word against your own judgment, but in the end of the day I can rest my mind in peace, knowing that I’ve never tried or did anything to harm anyone or the game we love so much.”

ESIC recently announced that they will be releasing “first set of substantial findings” related to the spectator bug on Monday.
