Following the recent investigation conducted in association with Valve and ESEA, Epsilon eSports have released Joey "fxy0" Schlosser and Kévin "Uzzziii" Vernel from their competitive Counter Strike: Global Offensive roster and the organisation itself.
Within the official statement issued by Epsilon, it is reported that the latest amount of information acquired provides significant evidence towards the validation of the proposed match-fixing allegations.
“As of today, fxy0 and Uzzziii have been released from Epsilon eSports. The latest elements and statements we have received clearly condemn the player in the matchfixing accusation. We would like to thank Valve for keeping us informed during the entire process.”
In addition to this, fxy0 has also publicly declared that he has received a one year ban from all Valve-sponsored tournaments. Although no official confirmation has been issued by Valve or Epsilon themselves, the ban seems to apply to all members involved in the match-fixing scandal.
However, as indicated in another statement issued by fxy0, it seems that Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom did indeed possess no previous knowledge of his teammate’s actions. As a result, “ScreaM” appears to have avoided punishment from Valve, while also retaining the sole position on the Epsilon roster.
