Competitive Ruling: Yasin "Nisay" Gök

posted by Riot Stupendous,
Yasin "Nisay" Gök has been banned for cheating during VALORANT ranked matches and will be ineligible to participate in all official Riot competitions for 12 months. Yasin "Nisay" Gök, former member of Beşiktaş Esports, has been banned for cheating during VALORANT ranked matches prior to the start of the VALORANT Champions Tour. As a result he will be ineligible to participate in all official Riot competitions for 12 months, effective immediately.

Context



As Vanguard is continually improved upon, Riot’s ability to detect cheating in VALORANT increases. While all players are expected to abide by the rules of fair play, professional players are subject to additional penalties if caught cheating. Cheating in any VALORANT queue is against the rules of competitive play.

Evidence



Cheating presents a unique challenge; where the more evidence we share publicly, the more difficult we make it to catch cheaters in the future.

In this situation, an automated system built by the Anti-cheat team to aid in cheat detection flagged the account for use of a cheat that reads the user’s screen before emulating corrective mouse movement with the assistance of external hardware. VALORANT Competitive Operations then reviewed the evidence with Anti-cheat analysts and concluded that Nisay undoubtedly cheated in VALORANT games, though at this time there is no data to suggest that Nisay cheated during a sanctioned competition.

Ruling



Yasin "Nisay" Gök has violated section 7.2.5 of the VALORANT Champions Tour - Global Competition Policy and will be ineligible to participate in all official Riot competitions for 12 months, effective immediately.

Relevant Rules



7.2.5 - Cheating
Cheating is prohibited. Any modification of the VALORANT game client by a Team or Team Member is prohibited. The use of any kind of cheating device or cheat program shall be deemed cheating.
