Mancano meno di due settimane all’inizio della BlizzCon 2018 dove si terrà la finale del Torneo fra le Nazioni di Hearthstone, ma una delle otto squadre finaliste ha già perso un membro.

Dzhengiz “Jengo” Kadir, il candidato preselezionato grazie ai punti competitivi, ha annunciato sul suo profilo Twitter di essere stato squalificato per aver violato la regola che impedisce ai componenti di una squadra di scommettere in partite che li coinvolgano.

Jengo ha dichiarato che non era a conoscenza della sua violazione nel momento in cui l’ha commessa e di aver segnalato il fatto a Blizzard subito dopo. L’organizzazione ha deciso di intervenire riducendo però la sanzione prevista, che sarebbe risultata in un ban di almeno sei mesi, alla sola squalifica dal torneo.

HGG Disqualification

I have been disqualified from the Hearthstone Global Games.

Whatever I say in this tweet, I already proved it to Blizzard with screenshots.

As some of you might know, my name is Dzhengiz “Jengo” Kadir and I was the anchor of Team Bulgaria in HGG.

It happened in the first match of top 16, when we were playing against Netherlands. A friend of mine told me about a website where I can bet online for eSports. I never ever gambled for eSports before, I registered to this website the same day I gambled. Bulgaria had a higher % for winning, and since I was confident in my team, I decided to gamble for Bulgaria, literally just for fun. I wasn’t aiming to scam by betting on Netherlands and lose it intentionally, I bet for Bulgaria and we won. I bet only 25 EUR, so no one became a millionaire in the end. I didn’t know about the rule, that you can’t bet for a team in which you are participating in. Two people told me about this rule, and I self-reported to Blizzard on the same day after the match. Now some people might call me stupid for doing this, because how would Blizzard understand that I gambled on a third party website? Yes, correct, they might not, but there is a risk. This risk involves my gaming career, so I decided to be honest.

Blizzard said that in general they are banning for 6-12 months for this, but since I was honest, instead they will disqualify me and leave me without any prizes.

Team Bulgaria will go to BlizzCon without me, three people. I’ll be here cheering for them.
