Valve officially allowed Frenchman Jason Nguyen Kyojin Wang to perform on the professional stage. The decision was made based on the results of an investigation into the reasons for getting a VAC-ban in CS: GO. The player shared the information on Twitter.
“I am happy to share news that is very dear to me and is likely to change my life. I have long wanted to get an official confirmation from Valve to dispel rumors and clear my name.
A few weeks ago, Jérôme Coupes, the founder of Prodigy Agency, offered to help me conduct a full investigation with Valve. After a long and difficult work and a number of discussions, I am pleased to announce that I can officially participate in Valve tournaments! What can I say … I am very excited and will give my best to the game from now on. I promise you will not be disappointed. ”
Kyojin revealed that he got account restrictions in 2018 due to Valve’s automatic Anti Cheat system. Ban was removed only after a “full investigation” by the developers. Probably, the block was issued due to the fact that at the age of eight, the future esports player played from someone else’s account, the owner of which subsequently received a VAC ban.
Previously, Kyojin was invited to the CS: GO Team Heretics, but he did not remain on the roster due to suspicions of cheating. After the news of the lifting of restrictions, Kyojin was supported by many esportsmen. On Twitter he was congratulated by Lucas gla1ve Rossander, Richard shox Papillon, Nathan NBK Schmitt and other players.
This is not the first time that restrictions have been lifted from esports players in CS: GO following an investigation by Valve. In 2018, the company unbanned the Swede Robin robiin Sjögren.
