The Collegiate Starleague has issued a number of bans to the team representing Binghamton University, after an investigation determined that the team had been engaged in account sharing.
The original incident occured in their game against UC San Diego's team, Triton Gaming. Their opponents presented evidence to the CSL and after interfacing with CEVO, the two organizations were able to confirm that "Faylanks" had been account sharing with an individual known only by the tag "Cam", or "Deathcam".
Since then, it had been determined that this Cam individual had competed on "ShubertN"'s account as well in a previous game, and had been playing with the team's co-ordinator "aware" on ESEA and CEVO competition.
The evidence found by CSL and CEVO led the tournament organizer to forfeit Jack's Money Crew's results and prize money. They also handed down some fairly harsh bans, which can be seen alongside the full report on their website, but cover everyone involved on the team. These bans are:
- "Faylanks" - Indefinite Ban for Account Sharing
- Sebastian "ShubertN" Hubert - Indefinite Ban for Account Sharing
- "aware" - Indefinite Ban for Facilitating Account Sharing
- "Blooper" - Suspension until end of 2018/19 Season
- Terrance "artinny0" Lee - Suspension until end of 2018/19 Season

As the league discovered an infraction on a previous match, against Virginia Commonwealth University, this meant CSL organized a final make-up match between them and the team from UC San Diego for the final spot. In a close fought game, Virginia Commonwealth came out on top 2-1 to take their spot at the finals in Huntington Beach, on April 28th-29th.
