Nikhil "left" Kumawat, a member of OpTic India's CS: GO team, was caught cheating on eXTREMESLAND during the Asian finals. The team was fired immediately and missed the grand prize of $ 100,000. Spectators and fans began to speculate when the game was interrupted for more than 20 minutes.
It took him a long time to figure out whether he had betrayed or not because Kumawat refused to let the officers see his PC. After the officers told him to get out of the game, he closed and put out a program that was running in the background. The moment was reportedly intercepted here on video:
We are not sure if this is exactly the time when he was perceived as cheated. The officer, however, seemed desperate and tried to pull Kumawat's arms away from the computer. The fraudulent software was taken over by the B5 anti-cheat program installed by the tournament owners.
OpTic India has released the perpetrator and stated that the other players have no knowledge of the activity.
That just raises the question. Were there tournaments won by OpTic India, where Kumawat had cheated? As these things usually go, this was probably not the first time, just the first time he got caught.
