Following the previous announcement
https://discordapp.com/channels/423513580059754507/431741246403510282/697871038134091840  [I can't get this link to resolve. Sorry.]

We have announced that we have placed a ban with any GKD related teams from any further events organized by KotS APAC.

However, we have discovered that team YYK is having players who have relation with GKD playing in their team.
Thus, in accordance with the ban placed on GKD related teams, we [have issued] the following sanctions to Team YYK.

- Team YYK will be disqualified from the KotS XI tournament, with that, the team members also lose the qualification to receive tournament rewards (including the qualification to play in the international final)
- Team YYK members will be blacklisted from any further events organized by KotS APAC.
The list of blacklisted players : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vRFlZ2Ddn5823TngnuSbTcWT-JG7oKhp1ZSNqnxEBEGHRuSPddt7VxTBYQkE-_yhEDX9LmiWHIa8rqC/pubhtml

The second news is that we can now officially crown our new KotS winner, congratulations to team KAXSA for winning the crown to KotS XI! We would like to also congratulate REPOI and V0R as they will be joining KAXSA to defend our region in the International Final next week.

Final standing:
1st place: Team KAXSA
2nd place: Team REPOI
3rd place: Team V0R

KoTS Asia Organizer team

GKD was banned from last KoTS.

YYK has been found to have players from GKD...so, now YYK has also been banned.

That's how I read this, at least.

But why were they banned? If they cheated all those players should be banned from the game

According to this -- sharing accounts and evading bans.

So they were banned for evading bans? But why were they banned to begin with?

I updated my post with a link to a screenshot of a discord announcement. Take a look. I don't know more than is stated there.

And sharing accounts with people that aren't members of the team is against the rules and is bannable in itself.

If I read it correctly, the original ban was for sharing accounts, which I assume means they gave people the passwords to their accounts so they could have ringers who were not part of the team play for them and pretend to be part of the team.   And then the banned players were caught doing something similar the next season.  Or something like that.

The discord link takes me to a dead, dark place with no information.

Just what the hell is going on in that corner of the world? (Rhetorical question. I'm sure a frank answer would get the thread deleted.)

It actually takes me to an unrelated conversation with Hapa_Fodder :Smile_unsure:  (probably because it's the last conversation I posted to).  I'll try to see is I can find out what it references and/or why GDK was banned.

As I read the screenshot off discord, my understanding is that GSK was banned for sharing accounts (player A logs on and competes in the tourney using Player B's account).  This is a violation of the KoTS rules _and_ a violation of the EULA for WoWS.

YYK then had some of the same players from GSK share accounts for this season of KoTS.

Foolish and Stupid for the players involved, and it is proper for them to be ousted from the KoTS tourney and from WOWS itself.

That's not what I'm hearing.  GKD rage-quit the tournament after losing a match to RAIN so was perma-banned for unsportsmanlike conduct.  Perhaps they did share accounts at the time, but I haven't heard it.

Apparently YYK was account sharing - with banned players, to boot - but no confirmation on that yet.

Yes, the bans seem appropriate.

@Taichunger  Pointed out something to me quite a long time ago and that was that for some Asian cultures winning is the only thing and it doesn't matter how they get it.  If cheating gets you the win then it's just as celebrated as winning legitimately.  I hope I'm getting the gist correctly.
