No matches

OpTic India player Nikhil ‘forsaken’ Kumawat has been caught cheating at the eXTREMESLAND 2018 Asia Finals. OpTic India has in turn been disqualified from the $100,000 event with forsaken being put on the next flight home.

Since then OpTic has confirmed that the player has been released from the organization according to OpTic’s Jesal Parekh via HLTV. “The player caught with hacks has been released from the organisation, we do not tolerate anything like this,” Parekh told HLTV. “An official statement will be released soon by the organization, but I want to make it very clear that the other four players had no knowledge of this and would never have agreed to even play if there was even the slightest hint of it,” he added.

It was originally brought to the publics attention when CSGO2ASIA tweeted out that “something’s seriously off” during OpTic Indias match against Revolution.

Things were verified shortly after when CSGO2ASIA posted that it was confirmed by officials with the tournament that forsaken had “been caught with hacks on his PC.”

A clip is also circulating showing a moment when the player tried to prevent an admin from searching his PC, apparently attempting to delete files before the admin could look into it.

According to more information from CSGO2ASIA, “suspicious activity” picked up by the B5 anti-cheat being used by the tournament was the root of the investigation into the player.

VPesports will continue to provide updates on the situation.
