Tyson "asap" Paterson from the Australian CS:GO team Rooster has been banned for 12 months for submitting falsified ID documents to ESL. For an individual in a team to be able to compete in ESL tournaments, they must meet the age limit requirement of 18+.

On Nov. 28, ESL Australia held a tournament which asap is registered to participate. An age-verification process was initiated because asap previously competed in tournaments where he submitted his age to be 17. During this process, asap provided a false date-of-birth but he failed ESL's verification process.

asap was born in Dec. 31, 2002, which makes him 17 by Nov. 28. The ban is active from Dec. 2, 2020 for 12 months effective for all DreamHack, ESL, and ESEA tournaments and leagues.
