Statement (mostly written shortly before ban)

Hey everyone,

My name is Pontus Duvefelt and I am the owner of the account Kpetrol, goaltender for Brotherhood HT.

I wanted to start by saying that this has been an awesome tournament so far – I’ve had an absolute blast playing with and against all of you guys, the sportsmanship and competition has been great! EHL is probably the most fun I think all of us will ever have with this videogame-franchise, I know it has been for me (except for the 2-12 game against BSE…).
I think most of you know why I am writing this statement. It came to my attention today that I stand accused of cheating. My first reaction to this accusation was suprise. Cheating? Me? Being stuck in the middle of the pack statisticlly among all the goalies, apperantly I must be a pretty bad cheater.

But then I heard about the rule on registrering multiple accounts on Console Hockey, and I realised: fuck, somewhere along the way I fucked up big time.
I’m writing this, not as an argument, but as an apology – and to clear things up for anyone wondering what this Pigeon-gate is really about.

As some of you may already know, I am the younger brother of Pigeonfield, and we’ve been playing together since the launch of EASHL in 09. Some of you may know me under my other Xbox Account Pigeonfield Jr – the account I mainly used during the period 2009-2014. Last year we joined this tournament for the first time, co-captaining Club HC to an Quarter-Final exit. At this point I registered the account Pigeonfield Jr at this website.

Around 3-4 months ago we decided to end the NHL 15 version of Club HC due to lack of interest from several teammates. Needless to say I shut down my NHL-playing for a while. Around the same time our good friend and goalie Kpetrol stopped playing NHL 15 due to a recently started course in Webdesign. I asked him if I could borrow his account and start playing G, since he had a much better Goalie card than me. So I did, and I played alot of games making it all the way to the Legend 3 card, finding fun in NHL 15 once again. It has since grown to be my main account when it comes to NHL, with the occational switch up to the Pig JR account to play Skater (who has a legend 3 card in that category).

Shortly before this tournament started, and after we realised Club HC wasnt going to happen, me and brother was approached by Brotherhood HT. They were looking for a G and a D. It sounded like a lot of fun so we decided to join.
Of course, here comes my mistake – I hadnt read the rules closely enough. In an attempt to make it easier for the dedicated GMs reporting the game-stats I decided to create a matching account for Kpetrol on Consolehockey. I didnt even think a lot about it, just seemed like a good idea at the time.

With this statement I’m not trying to justify any of this, I just wanted to sort out some missunderstandings. One could argue alot about this situation – but i’ve decided I’m not gonna. Like with Nicklas Backström during the winter olympics of 2014 – this situation is unfortunate, but there is not really any excuse not knowing the rules. I just wanted to let you know, that I had the best of intentions and wasnt trying to trick any of you.
I want to apologise to Bomanovic and everyone else feeling cheated by this situation. I want to apologise to MartindalexC who have been a great commisioner so far, for this inconvenience. I especially want to apologise to my finnish teammates, whom I’ve gotten to know during this last month, and grown quite fond of – I can't even begin to tell you how sorry I am. I am in tears right now.

Of course I accept the commisioners punishment and I accept it with no hard feelings. Playing this tournament was great and I wish the best of luck to all the remaining teams.

If anyone wants to ask me anything, just post a comment, I’ll stick around.

Best of wishes,
Pontus Duvefelt
