I don't agree at all with going 23 seconds in spectator. If this shit happened at any other point in the map then yes he, and his team, should be penalized/forfeited but this was the end of the map and no useful information could have possibly helped his team.
My problem is that I don't understand the reason for a ban. Considering the circumstances, this player and his whole team should be slapped with a warning at most. If his actions had an impact on the result of the match then no problem with the ban.
The RGL page says the ban is for "ghosting". There was no ghosting, you need a better reason. This looks like a lackluster admin decision.
Player bans need to be on a case by case basis. Penalties issued based on the impact it had on the match/players involved.
---This guy went spec for 23 seconds
---The final cap happened 24/25 seconds after he went spec
What fucking information could he have possibly told his team that they did not already see? They were finishing the final cap and had several people inside the last point anyways............. Its not like he relayed sentry gun position or player locations. It's obvious he wasn't ghosting anything.
I'll say again, I don't agree with the 23 seconds in spec and there should be some type of repercussions, such as a warning or documented offense for the entire team. Then if it happens again from anyone on the team it can be properly disciplined. To just issue a month ban under these circumstances is idiotic IMO.
