Liquid’s EliGE calls out CS:GO team for shady practices

For professional CS:GO players, scrims are a chance to practice the game at a high level, but they’ve also turned into a way for opposing teams to use some underhanded practices.

On October 8th, Liquid’s Jonathan ‘EliGE’ Jablonowski took to Twitter to call out one such organization.

With CS:GO being such a technical, frame-perfect game, recording opponents POVs can give a team a significant advantage.

When told to @ who he is talking about, EliGE obliges and calls out Rogue.

But it doesn’t seem like Rogue is the only organization who may be using this trick.

Tarik, a player for Made in Brazil, responded to the tweet. He remembered a time an organization “had trouble connecting” to his team’s server only to find a screen-recording set up when they switched to the opposing team’s server.

Tarik neglected to name the organization in question.

To discover if an opposing team is recording a scrim is actually pretty simple.

All it requires is turning on GOTV, the in-game viewing service, for the server being used to host the scrims.

The ease of use of GOTV, coupled with the solid advantage a team using the service receives, makes this a valid worry for professional CS:GO teams.  

Luckily, it is easy to identify teams using this trick, and calling out the organization in question – like EliGE – should stop major organizations from risking their reputation for a little bit of intel.

OG Esports to kick NBK-

After an exciting debut in the CSGO space, OG Esports are making a change to their lineup and it’s NBK- who is going to get cut, first reported by ViKarM.

Within a year of OG’s existence in CSGO, the org managed to be a top 10 team but have struggled to make deep runs at events, let alone win some trophies.
