Two Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pros have been banned from esports organisation FaceIt's events after it was discovered they had cheated in a competition.
The players – Woldes and Jezayyy – won the Red Bull Flick Finland National Final but their prizes were taken away after fans noticed strange crosshair movement. In a video on YouTube, it's clear that the duo was using some kind of hacks in a match against Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen and Aleksi "allu" Jalli.
These bad actors went undetected by the game's anti-cheat measures.
"Today the two players have been banned following a technical update pushed this morning by our infrastructure team," FaceIt wrote in a statement.
"Unfortunately, due to a technical issue introduced by last week's release, information on a few types of cheat detections was not temporarily available within our infrastructure by our Anti-Cheat operation team.
"This lack of visibility and the fact that those types of detections were not yet managed with any immediate and automated “kick & ban” strategy, created a delay for the two players to be banned (alongside 80 other players involved in other competitions across the FACEIT platform) ."
