NRG to Replace Rocket in PGL CS2 Copenhagen Major

NRG will now have the opportunity to qualify for the PGL CS2 Copenhagen Major as they will take the place of team Rocket in the American RMR. This decision was made after it was revealed that a Rocket player was caught cheating and his team admitted to breaking the rules in the closed qualifier.

PGL made the announcement that NRG would be replacing team Rocket on Feb. 22, just three days after Damian “EMIYA” Boulware, a player from Rocket, was banned on FACEIT for cheating. It was also discovered that EMIYA’s teammates, Ahmed “ayy” Mahmoud and Matthew “nero” Seymour, accused their coach of illegally communicating with the team during matches in the RMR’s closed qualifier. This behavior is strictly prohibited according to the event’s rulebook.
