During the tournament a pro player was banned for cheating.

Kezkd was playing alongside Ghost's Nanolite and Cizlucky when he was kicked from the tournament.

After he was banned he eventually admitted that he was banned for exploiting and the ban was "long".

Pro Players React

Many pro players reacted to the ban on Twitter, with many of them angry that he might have been cheating for a long time to place high in tournaments, stealing money from other competitors.

Who Is Kezkd?

Kezkd is best known as the winner of the Chapter 2 Season 2 Squads FNCS tournament, alongside NRG's Unknown and Ronaldo, as well as Cloud 9's Avery.

Many players have begun to question whether he was cheating or not at this time, which may have played a part in him winning the FNCS tournament.

His Team Mates Knew?

A few weeks before the tournament, a player contacted one of his team mates, Cizlucky, and told him that Kezkd had been purchasing soft aim hacks and would likely be banned before the end of Season 5.

Understandably he didn't believe the random player, but later said on Twitter that "I was so naïve, I didn't even think for a second he was telling the truth."
