Nemiga Gaming announced they will replace Klan Fontan at the CS:GO CIS Minor. The organizer will release an official statement today.
Nemiga alerted the fans on VK that they will take part at the upcoming CIS Minor because FONTAN were disqualified. The latter won the 5-7th place decider 2 to 1, earning a spot for the LAN event.
Always on VK, FONTAN explained that their player Dmitry "Ezzo" Kosov didn’t send a copy of his passport to the tournament organizers in time, thus they have been disqualified.
Klan Fontan used soft Cheats
On October 10, Team Spirit filed a protest against Klan Fontan because two of their players, Egor "darkinho" Lobanov and Sergey "SER1Y" Oleynikov, were banned by FACEIT for cheating.
A chat with Ezzo leaked on VK, and he admitted that some members of the teams used soft cheats during the qualifier.
The CIS Minor will take place in Bucharest, Romania from October 26 to 29. Team Spirit and Tengri received a direct invite, while the other 6 have been determined through the open qualifier.
