I made some edits to the OP by mentioning a person by the name of Rudy. I neglected to mention him originally and did so now in order to clear up some confusion regarding the DDoSing. kd24 also asked me if he could write more about his involvement, and I will honor the request. Below are his words.
Some people are incorrectly filling in the blanks from what it seems. I'm sure people are jumping to conclusions all over the place so let me just fill in the facts of my role in this:
1.) I did not discover nor come up with the idea of knocking people offline during Tour. I was asked by my friends to post an IP of this annoying guy and so I (mistakenly) did. I did this a couple of times afterwards despite knowing they were being knocked off PO.
2.) I did not maliciously post IPs to knock off my opponents nor did I ask anyone to do it for me. It was pretty apparent that the group I was talking to had done it and I was stuck in a spot where I was too afraid to come forward, as I already had participated in trolling random users.
3.) When it was obvious my opponents were DDoSed, I told everyone in the group to not do something like that to cheat again. As far as I know, they didn't.
4.) I thought that what was happening was just a PO troll/glitch. When I found out that what I was assisting was a DDoS, I pmed Kevin Garrett my concerns and we agreed to not ever play a role in it again. I did not as anyone who was there can attest to.
I deserve my punishment for my failure to step forward after I benefited from what happened, but I did not cheat nor did my friends ever use it to cheat. It was done as a troll that went too far when other users decided to put things in their own hands.
