The AsiaFortress Administrators would like to notify everyone of a rule change. Specifically Rule 4b, regarding mercenaries:
Mercenaries may be chosen without the consent of the other team if they are registered in a team participating in a lower division.
We have received feedback that this clause written leaves room for it to be utilised in an unintended manner. Therefore, in an effort to police mercenaries employed through this method, we ask that competitors seek administrative approval for mercenaries from lower divisions.
Rule Change under Rule 4b
Mercenaries may be chosen without the consent of the other team if they are registered in a team participating in a lower division. This must be accompanied with the approval of any Division Manager.
We hope that this change reaffirms our stance on mercenaries in play for teams in the AsiaFortress Cup, and promotes fairer, integral play amongst teams.

It has come to the attention of the AsiaFortress Administrators that player ikeinn of team Apex Legend is a smurf account used by kosina, a player that has previously played in higher levels of competition. The AsiaFortress Administrators believe that the account was used to conceal the identity of said player, allowing them to participate in a lower division than their team's roster would reflect.
As stated in Section 5B of the rules, alternate accounts used for the following purposes are strictly prohibited:
- disguise one's identity to play in a division lower than their actual skill
- participate on another team in the same competition
kosina, in violation of Rule 5B, will receive a 1 season ban from AsiaFortress Cup 18.
Apex Legend, having received an unfair advantage by having player kosina on it, will have their matches involving the banned player overturned.
