In your own neighborhoods, it may be fun to cheat, play around with games, and have fun in your spare time. But in professional e-sports, cheating is no laughing matter, and one player has figured that out the hard way.
According to a report on Eurogamer, there is a controversy overcooking within the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive The eSports community was caught cheating after one of the players in the competitive community. This proves that even with a seemingly insurmountable skill library, some players still have to cheat to win.
The report shows that during the Extremeland Zowie Asia tournament in Shanghai, China, OpTic India player Nikhil "Forsaken" Kumawat actually started midway through a tournament with a cheat-hack, while OpTic India played an intense game against Vietnamese Team Revolution played.
Kumawat was caught cheating by the tournament officials, but tried to get them off his computer's hard drive before being notified. But he just was not smart enough to get rid of all the evidence of the hack before he was caught.
Officials began investigating the hacker claim by checking Kumawat's computer, whereupon he attempted to erase the program, allowing him to fight his opponent in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive . An Aimbot is essentially an automatic aiming system that automatically locks onto opponents and makes it possible to shoot deadly shots quickly with just the push of a button.
Kumawat tried to erase the files while the officers checked his computer, but dramatically The officer physically fell into his hands and grabbed Kumawat's arm to prevent him from pressing the deletion file.
Quite naturally, Kumawat was knocked out of the tournament, which is typical when a player is cheated at an organized eSports event. What many did not expect was that the entire OpTic India team was disqualified from the tournament. This annoyed the owners, causing them to fire every single member of the team.
But it is getting worse. Nikhil "Forsaken" Kumawat is now being considered for a life-long ban on all eSporting events, effectively destroying his career as a professional player.
The video he captured and caught by the officers does not help, because instead of confessing the crime, he tried to erase the hacks. Take a look:
As highlighted by Eurogamer, this is not even the first time Kumawat has been caught cheating. Previously, he was suspended from tournament play for a brief period in 2017 when he was vetted during a Steam game with a VAC ban. A VAC ban will only occur if the Valve Anti-Cheat system marks your account for using cheats. It will be hard for Kumawat to recover from this incident, especially as he has been banned once for fraud.
