The 100-year ban is no more
Jack "arKimonday" Kastner has been unbanned from ESEA after serving out a two-year ban, Mark "Boq" Wilson revealed in a tweet Monday morning. The player was previously dealt a 100-year ban by the platform after he LAN-dodged ESEA MDL Season 23 Global Challenge just prior to the start of the event, forcing Muffin Lightning to field CLG Red's Diane "di^" Tran in his stead.
After speaking with the player and discussing the matter internally, we've decided to reduce Arkimonday's ban to the 2 years he's already served as we believe it more than sufficient for the offense. Arkimonday will be able to play on ESEA again effective immediately.— Mark 'Boq' Wilson (@Boq_TV) January 7, 2019
The 29-year old is now once again eligible to play on the platform, and with the ESEA league fee deadline looming at the end of the day, has just a few hours if he wishes to join a team before the start of the season.
Most recently, Zack "XotiC" Elshani failed to attend both ESEA MDL Season 29 Global Challenge and the MDL Season 29 grand finals with cantwinalan. Without XotiC, cantwinalan were unable to prevail over Swole Patrol in the grand finals, losing out on the chance to qualify for a slot in ESL Pro League as their run through EPL Relegation also proved unsuccessful with Ryan "GRAMPZ" Baber in tow.
