Team Redemption (formerly Arrow Gaming and Team We Are Sorry) will be allowed to join the upcoming SEA qualifier of the Major All Stars Tournament. Members of the team had previously been embroiled in a match fixing scandal, but appear to be honest about making amends.
Organiser Fallout Gaming released a statement to the media about its decision to allow the disgraced team to participate in the scandal, citing that career of a pro-gamer is extremely short and even a one year ban would be severely damaging to the players.
Arrow Gaming had previously competed in the prestigious The International Dota 2 Championship 2014 in Seattle, but later fell from grace as members DDZ and Lance admitted to matchfixing back in October. Both players are currently permanently banned from the Synergy League, but were allowed to participate as Team We Are Sorry in Vietnam Champion League.
While the team is allowed to attempt to qualify for the Major All Stars Tournament, the organisers have taken precautions to ensure that no matchfixing happens again. Team Redemption has different terms for joining the competition and their members are individually liable for wrongdoings.
The Major All Stars Tournament is a Dota 2 competition taking place in Kuala Lumpur. Eight teams from across the globe will converge on KL in March 2015 to compete for the US$100,000 prize pool. The qualifiers will be beginning soon, and more participating teams will be announced in the weeks to come.
