MPL Penalizes AkosiDogie, Omega Esports and Nexplay Evos over unprofessional behavior
MPL Penalizes AkosiDogie, Omega Esports and Nexplay Evos over unprofessional behavior according to MPL-PH S8 rulebook.
You can check out the official statement from MPL below:
The penalty was dished out after the game between Omega and Nexplay where the violation of several rules from the rulebook happened. The rules that were violated surrounded competitive integrity and professional manners with both teams visibly seen using questionable strategies during the games particularly in Game 1 where Nexplay was spotted with five flameshot spells equiped. Meanwhile Omega did the whole “Feeding Diggie” strategy in Game 2.
Both teams received a warning and a fine of $3000. Much worse is the fact that the players who were in the controversial games won’t be considered for the MPL-PH Season 8 personal awards candidates.
AkosiDogie also got added penalty for doing a prohibited pose which angered MPL viewers. He got an additional $500 fine plus a two-game suspension for his actions.
