Harvard and Michigan teams disqualified for cheating in Heroes of the Storm tourney

    
72

Harvard University’s motto, “Veritas,” feels more apt than usual this month as the truth came out about some of the school’s students and their attempt to cheat in a Heroes of the Storm tournament.

Blizzard ruled that teams from Harvard and Michigan engaged in sharing account access with non-registered players as part of the ongoing Heroes of the Dorm tournament. The studio not only yanked the teams from the tourney but is considering taking account action against those involved as well. Considering that this touches upon a competition for part of a $500,000 prize pool, it’s definitely serious business for all parties.

“We have found that players from Team Ambush have violated several tournament rules,” Blizzard posted. “An investigation by Tespa and Blizzard Entertainment revealed that a player on Team Ambush was sharing his Battle.net account with a higher-rated player who was not on his team’s roster during official tournament matches. As a result, Team Ambush has been disqualified from Heroes of the Dorm […] Team Hot Boys from Michigan was disqualified in the Round of 64 for a similar issue, and the players involved will face similar disciplinary action.”

CloakingDonkey ashfyn Koolthulu JohnD212 Not going to lie, but that’s a stupid reason to complain. You’re literally saying that you’re okay with jumping off a bridge with everyone else because everyone else is doing. 

Which is a logically shit reason to do anything.

Estranged Extremely bored. The levels of depression and anxiety are off the charts for this generation. Social awkwardness is the norm, and empathy is dying.
This generation now is reacting to everything and finding nothing interesting. They’re noticing that life has no meaning and they don’t want to find meaning in something that their parents told them. They want to find meaning in newer things…
Which is a mess of a idea since we’re still living through old politics, old news, old businesses…You get my point.
