Michael Slowinski has been one of the hard-chargers behind the ESIC investigation, turning down payment from ESIC as he works as a freelance esport referee and didn’t want a conflict of interest. In terms of the ongoing investigation, Slowinski is the defacto head of the team and a consistent source of information as the process continues down its arduous path.

While the ESIC has finally released its first batch of findings from the investigation that continues to charge forwards, Michael Slowinski has offered on Twitter video evidence of every finding from the ESIC report that was released last Monday and discussed at length here on Tuesday.

Critics, eat your heart out: it will be difficult to deny the accusations, as some are continuing to do, when the entire world can watch the exploitation of bugs for themselves.

Now you too can watch coaches cheat. Note that the entirety of the playlist is available on YouTube, but stamping specific videos within the playlist has proven troublesome.

Slowinski notes that he hopes that this metric, of publically showing all evidence of cheating opportunities, becomes a new standard as esport collectively strives to remove bad actors and those with no integrity. It offers irrefutable proof that could finally eliminate the faithful standby of cheaters, ‘Nuh-uh!’.

This action, and the investigation as a whole, continues to cement Slowinski as one of the most vital proponents and components of Counter-Strike and the esport scene as a whole, even if he was snubbed along with many others from the baffling Esport Award choices.

ESIC continues to have their plates full in the future, however: the match-fixing scandal that has permeated the lower tiers of competitive Counter-Strike play continues to be investigated with no clear metric being offered from responsible parties regarding procession or data gathered as of yet.

On top of this comes the stream-sniping investigation that, once again, MIBR has participated in on-stream; ESIC is now attempting to discover precisely how many teams have used stream-sniping to gain information during official matches, in much the same manner that the spectating exploit was also knowingly used.

Speaking of, at the end of October ESIC is preparing the second batch of information to be released regarding the spectating bug that multiple coaches have used in professional play to gain an advantage.

With the state of Counter-Strike, it’s admittedly difficult to fault Swole Patrol for simply disbanding from the scene entirely. Here’s hoping it gets a resurgence once it removes a heft of bad actors.
