In case you missed it, a player of the OpTic Gaming Indian Team has been disqualified from the eXTREMESLAND CS:GO event in Asia after one of their players, forsaken was caught live at the LAN with cheats/hacks on his PC. Watch as he struggles with the admin in an attempt to, what we can only assume, hide or close the hacks while the admin was looking at his computer.

It has been confirmed by Extremesland Officials that
@OpTicIndia player ‘foresaken’ has been caught with hacks on his PC. The team has been dismissed from the tournament immediately and the player will be sent home on the next flight. No further statements from OptiC at this time.
This wasn’t the first time.

As Rod Breslau points out, clips from as early as 2017 are resurfacing, showing a clear aim-bot trigger being used.
Forsaken has since deleted his Twitter account as a form of damage control, but unfortunately the damage has been done. Four great players had an amazing opportunity with the OpTic organization, just to have it ripped out from beneath their feet, live at a LAN event. A very unfortunate day for the India Counter-Strike scene.
