“Negotiations went almost all night. Then FACEIT began to ignore the message. After lunch, I got an answer. Artyom broxy Mitakov, Yuri Asmodium Krasnov and Dmitry FireFly Boetsky received a ban on the FACEIT platform. We were never informed about the reason for blocking. We are now waiting for a response from Valve and are preparing to file an appeal. ”
