I’ve always found it interesting how community figures are too careful to mention specific clips. Although they’re willing to state that cheating should be addressed, they’re never prepared to point to the evidence that made that worry appear in the first place.
So, here I’m filling a small void within the content of the CS:GO scene. It should be useful to have some sort of list of clips that can be referenced as evidence for the sake of discussion.
Please keep in mind that this article isn’t accusing anyone. It’s simply meant to be a compilation of the most talked about suspicious pro CS:GO clips to date. Whether they’re convincing as evidence is for you to decide.
EnvyUs Shox vs Cloud9 on Dust2
Old clip against Cloud9. Looks like shox accidentally kept holding an aim-lock key, causing a jiggle motion resulting from the opposing forces.
G2 Esports Shox vs Virtus.Pro on Train
Newer clip on train. Shox flicks across the whole train and traces Snax’s head through the wall for several frames.
Dignitas Konfig vs mousesports on Cache
Konfig flicks to an opponents head through a wall. He then randomly jerks his crosshair left and right as if to make the previous action look just as random.
fnatic Olofmeister vs Na’Vi on Mirage
Olofmeister had two insane jumpshots in a game against Na’Vi. This clip received a lot of attention in the past, because the demo starts acting weird when slowed down. The flick, causing the first kill on the Na’Vi player standing on balcony is so fast that the character dies before the crosshair reaches it. Similarly, the second kill came also from a similarly baffling flick. That both kills are jumpshots explains why people find this clip so incredible.
fnatic flusha vs NiP on Inferno
Not a perfect flick to the head, but it’s odd how the crosshair doesn’t travel to the target – it teleports there instead.
Flusha has several more suspicious clips that are more stereo-typically indicative of cheating.
fnatic flusha vs LDLC on Cache
This clip received a ton of attention on Reddit just as the Flusha witch-hunt first began. Flusha sprays at a player through the mid wall on cache, followed by a spray transfer to the head of the next player.
fnatic Flusha vs Na’Vi on Mirage
This clip also received a ton of attention before and after Fnatic stepped down from the major due to their altercation with LDLC. Watch Flusha flick right at the opponent through a box, and then quickly pull the crosshair somewhere else, as if to conceal that the flick to the head was intentional.
These clips alone aren’t enough. Clips of weird actions are just that. Clips. To go as far as to accuse a player, the inner workings of the game client at the time of these events have to be understood first.
