After visiting the ESL One Cologne North American qualifier with his team 'Noble', Sam '4sh0t' Mariano and a team-mate were removed from the squad in order to introduce some fresh talent into the roster. This indecent was paired with a dispute over a $200 fine copped when Mariano threw up in an Uber ride and refused to reimburse his team mate.



Reportedly, in order to spite his ex-team mate and Uber fine-payer, Mariano hacked into Chris "roa" Gretchen's ESEA account and played on it with cheats in order to get him banned. However after an investigation, ESEA were able to deduce that it was Mariano playing on the account at the time, handing him a 365 day ban.


Current Noble player Rob 'rob-wiz' Kennedy has summed up the whole ordeal on a recent stream, you can see the recording above.
