eXTREMELAND ZOWIE Asia tournament in Shanghai came to a halt due to technical difficulties but was later confirmed that a player from OpTic India was caught cheating. Nikhil “forsaken” Kumawat had installed 3rd party software on his computer at the tournament and tried to delete the hack when caught. OpTic India was Disqualified from the event with only playing 2 games before Admins caught Forsaken. This is not forsaken’s first bout of trouble with ESL though. He received a 2 year ban from any ESL tournament due to a Valve Anti-Cheat ban on his account in 2017 but was given a lesser punishment after of just 6 months.
