nosraC and jeorgesnorts indefinitely suspended from FPL
Carson "nosraC" O'Reilly and Jeorge "jeorgesnorts" Endicott have been indefinitely suspended from FPL starting April 16th, FACEIT has confirmed with Dust2.us. The indefinite suspensions for nosraC and jeorgesnorts mark an escalation of punishments for the players after numerous prior bans. nosraC previously faced a three-month ban from November 2020 to February 2021 and a one-month chat ban in 2021.
Regarding the suspensions, FACEIT's NA Product Manager, Jared "Slove" Sloven, told Dust2.us:
Carson's ban is very similar to the reasons for his last one. It's due to excessive toxic behavior and creating a negative team atmosphere. While it appears he tried to win his games, there were times where he would tilt and stop working with the team focusing more on bad mouthing everyone than the main objective. Coming off a three-month ban for the same reason it shows that he did not learn from the time away.
Jeorge's ban is also due to continuous toxic behavior as well as occasions of trolling. There have been instances of the rest of the team deciding to save for the following round and jeorgesnorts will purchase down to $0 with a Negev or an SMG - behavior that should never happen in FPL.
Their behavior has affected how others in the hub have been performing. The reason for the bans being indefinite is to allow other players a chance to prove themselves in a more positive environment without putting a timeframe on it.
Dust2.us reached out to nosraC and jeorgesnorts regarding the suspensions. nosraC told Dust2.us:
The hub is in the worst state and all the admins don't care about improving the quality of the hub to entice the pros to play again and they should completely abolish FPL and put all the money into Faceit cups.
He also pointed out a perceived double standard in moderation of FPL as Bradley "Slugy" Kohler allegedly wasn't punished after calling the duo "dogshit" and that "ur [sic] life definitely isn't worthless."
Meanwhile, jeorgesnorts told Dust2.us in a slightly more apologetic comment:
I was having a bad attitude lately and although a couple of the reasons for the suspension I believe to be invalid, I can see why it happened. I had some IRL stuff affecting me and I'll do better in the future.
Gaimin Gladiators' CEO, Nick Cvillo, declined to comment about his players' suspensions.
The duo's indefinite suspension from FPL comes as their new organization, Gaimin Gladiators, has had to defend their decision to sign the team despite their previous controversies.
