Cheating has become a part of every sport as a win at all cost is what matters for players. We say Karma is unforgiving and the person always gets payback. When you play games online you are often tempted to do cheating while playing the game. But doing so will only not only land you in trouble but also could get a life ban.
Professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player Nikhil “forsaken” Kumawat was caught cheating at a tournament in Shanghai this past weekend. He was part of the roster for OpTic India (an offshoot of OpTic Gaming), participating at the Extremesland Zowie Asia CS:GO 2018 tournament.
The incident happened during the finals ladder during a match against Vietnamese team RevolutioN.
In a video that surfaced on social media Twitter, the administrator found something fishy when forsaken downed four opponents in a spray of bullets. He was seen inspecting the player’s system and discovering the files for an aimbot hidden in a Temp folder. After he was cheating forsaken shamefully attempting to delete the files, after which he had to be partially restrained.

Due to such shamefull act OpTic India was disqualified from the tournament, which carried a prize money worth USD 10,000. Not only that the team, unfortunately, dissolving entirely as Kumawat’s teammates say they had no knowledge of the cheating.

Kumawat has received a lifetime ban from Extremesland, as well as from the Asia Pro League. This is not the first time that he had been punished for such type of offense, earlier in 2017, he’d received a six-month ban from the Esports League for getting a Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) ban in Counter-Strike.
