ESL India Premiership finals to be replayed after OpTic's DQ

Forsaken's cheating has given the losing teams another chance.

  • Text: Sam Bishop

As you may know, OpTic India's CS:GO team was released after their Nikhil 'Forsaken' Kumawat was found to have cheated in tournaments including the ESL India Premiership finals, but now ESL India has announced that the final will be replayed with upgraded standards.

This decision was made with ESL Global, with OpTic's semi-final opponents 2EZ Gaming playing OpTic's final opponents Slaughter Rage Gaming this Sunday, and the winner representing India at the ESL Pro League finals.

Is this the best way to do things?
