Omega Esports found guilty of match-fixing, banned from all Valve events

09:38 PM November 23, 2021

Philippine esports organization Omega Esports has been officially banned from competing in all Valve-sponsored events as a result of their participation in match-fixing activities, as announced by the Southeast Asia Dota Pro Circuit League.

The ban extends to current players Prince Daculan and Ryniel Keit “Zenki” Calvez, former players Patt Piolo “Piolz” Dela Cruz, Dave “Hiro” Miyata, and now-Execration player Van Jerico Manalaysay. Omega coach Chris Ian “CTY” Francis Maldo is also included in the list.


With the ban, Omega will lose their Division I slot in the SEA DPC. BOOM Esports, who finished 7th last season, will move back up to Division I to compete in the upcoming Winter Tour. Meanwhile, Execration will be permitted to fill the open position in their roster with any eligible player.


With another Division II slot open, organizers Beyond the Summit will host another open qualifier on November 26.
