PGL Major Antwerp will begin in only a few days’ time, but instead of discussing the amazing storylines leading up to the event, we find ourselves discussing another chapter of a saga that drags on with no end in sight.

And then there’s also the question of why ESIC sat on this information for over a year, with Michal Slowinski (the tournament admin that played a central role in uncovering the bug scandal in 2020), stating that by the end of March 2021 he had completed his investigation and provided ESIC with the list of all cases.

This is something that ESIC will eventually have to answer for and that leaves a bitter taste in the mouth: Charged with one and one and a half rounds of the static bug, respectively, hally and zakk would have been able to attend the Antwerp Major if ESIC had published its findings in a timely manner. Even if found guilty, they would have been banned for the Stockholm Major only.

But this is still not over, far from it, with almost a hundred coaches left to formally charge. Many chapters are to follow, and like a Mexican telenovela, it will have many twists and turns, the suspense and the noise continuously sucking the life out of the esport.

Until all this is done and we get some sort of closure, we are bound to keep revisiting this story, each time with different protagonists. This is what we are doing right now, instead of talking about 9z making history for South American CS, IHC Esports being the first Mongolian representative at a Major, or Imperial’s Last Dance.

Monday can’t come soon enough.
