VALORANT Champions Tour Levies Competitive Ruling Against G2 Esports For In-Game Exploits

G2 Esports will start their next VALORANT Champions Tour match against Acend with one less map ban during the map veto process due to violating the VCT competitive rules “regarding use of in-game exploits,” Riot announced in a statement on March 4th. The violation occurred during G2’s match against SuperMassive Blaze in the VCT EMEA Challengers week two. VCT hasn’t made it clear what exploit the team used, but using a bug in-game to intentionally create an advantage for their team is prohibited, according to rule 7.2.6.

As a result of the exploit, G2 will now start with a slight disadvantage in the next game since they’ll have one less map ban during the map selection portion of their match vs. Acend.

G2 had an existing warning on their record from when their coach was issued an infraction for unauthorized communication in a match during the EMEA VCT Closed Qualifier One. Because of the prior infraction, this violation carries a harsher punishment.
