A male CS:GO player was found to have dressed up as a woman in an attempt compete in Lenovo’s Legion of Valkyrie event – a female-only tournament.

Lenovo’s Legion of Valkyrie event featured an all-female online CS:GO tournament where 32 teams get the chance to compete for a $1,000 prize pool.

The tournament had implemented preventive measures to prevent identity fraud and stop males from competing, such as requiring players to play with a camera on during their matches.

One CS:GO player tried to disguise himself to compete in the Lenovo Legion of Valkrie female-only event.

Despite the countermeasures that were in place, one male player still fancied his chances and dressed up with a wig in an attempt to fool the tournament organizer and referees.

The player wore a convincing black wig, glasses, and even a face mask while playing. However, despite somewhat looking the part, he was quickly found out after lowering the mask ahead of the games.

Screenshots of the bizarre incident were shared by PanYijingFlora, who highlighted the gamer’s disguise attempt with a series of images.

While face masks have been seen more frequently as of late with the ongoing health crisis, the tournament refs had still suspected something peculiar and seemingly instructed him, in Discord messages, to lower the face mask ahead of the match.

The player was apparently instructed to lower the mask ahead of the match.

Some viewers criticized the player for attempting to cheat the tournament’s rules, with one fan even labeling him a “disgrace.”

While it is unclear what transpired following his attempt to compete in the event, the male CS:GO player and his team did not make it out of the first round, according to the bracket, likely disqualified from the event.

The Counter-Strike calendar is kicking off on all cylinders to start 2021, with 8 of the game’s finest professional teams facing off at BLAST Premier’s Global Finals. Astralis has been dominant as of late, so will anyone be able to take them down?

Each and every org in attendance will be looking to kickstart 2021 with success at the BLAST Global Finals starting on January 19, but Astralis is a lot of people’s favorite to walk away with the lion’s share of the $1 million dollar prize pool, and rightfully so.

You couldn’t ask for a better in-game leader than Lukas ‘gla1ve’ Rossander and there’s no question he brings out the best in Peter ‘dupreeh’ Rasmussen, Nicolai ‘dev1ce’ Reedtz, and Emil ‘Magisk’ Reif round after round.

One player to keep an eye on though will be Andreas ‘Xyp9x’ Højsleth, who struggled to get his player average above 1.0 before the end of the year and lately hasn’t seemed to be the same crusader of clutch we’ve come to know and expect.

While plenty of teams have had a tumultuous few months leading into the new year, the French squad of Vitality has remained stable and could pose a real challenge to the Danes if Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut can provide the spark his team needs.
