After banning a player yesterday for cheating the Esports Integrity Coalition has decided to get your thoughts on how players should be punished for such offenses.

In the case yesterday the player was banned from “all esports” for two years, but now the ESIC want to hear your thoughts on how other players should be punished, so have released a survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ESIC_Cheating_Survey for anyone to fill out.

The survey offers up a number of scenarios, such as a young semi pro player cheating with hacks online, to professionals doping and match fixing. Each scenario has a number of possible punishments with those taking the survey expected to select one punishment for each offense. These punishments range from no punishment to a lifetime ban.

The survey was initially met with some skepticism, but the ESIC Chairman Ian Smith jumped onto Reddit to answer these questions.
