According to the published information, the player suffers this ban for teaming up with an opponent.
During the game, it is shown how a sniper is throwing objects at Clix to help him. So, Clix comments that he knew the other player was breaking the rules. However, he took the things he had thrown at him. Once Clix took the items, he also broke the game’s rules.
Clix admits that it was wrong of him to take the items, but he believes that the punishment he has been given is too severe. According to the player’s criteria, the punishment should be less so that he can participate in the next tournaments.
On the other hand, Clix comments that Epic may have only seen the replay of the game where he accepts the items, but they did not see that he was very upset with the other player.
Seeing the images without context may make it appear that the two players were playing as a team. However, Clix clarifies that with his comments, he does not want to go against Epic; he feels very disappointed in himself for falling into the opponent’s game.
2 Weeks for a heat of the moment mistake is too much. This isn't the same as 2 players agreeing to team in a tournament. You were getting stream sniped and made a mistake in the heat of the moment. A shorter suspension would have been enough.
