LIRIK dishes out scathing review of “noob cheater” in CSGO

Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid spent some time on stream going through some cheating cases in CS:GO’s Overwatch tribunal system, before stumbling across the worst “noob cheater” in the game’s history and giving them a scathing review.

Game developers like Valve develop their own anti-cheat software to try and catch hackers in action and ban their accounts. However, sometimes it comes down to the community to make the verdict.

The murky cases of CS:GO hacking get pushed onto the Overwatch system, where high-ranked players can vote on whether a player was hacking or not. 

It can lead to some amusing moments for streamers like LIRIK, who go through the cases with their chat, finding the most blatant cheaters mixed in with the salty enemies.

ValveHacking is as common in CS:GO as any other online game.

While scrubbing through some cases on January 7, LIRIK stumbled across an obvious wallhack and aimbot user decimating the enemy on Dust II. The cheating was painfully noticeable, even with the little tweaks the hacker tried to use to hide it somewhat.

That didn’t stop the streamer from giving the hacker a verbal beatdown on stream, labelling them as quite possibly CS:GO’s worst cheater.

“This poor guy here, this is what you call a noob cheater here, in his natural environment,” he said. “This poor noob cheater boy, he tries to blend in but the problem here in this scenario is that his aimbot is too strong.”

While the cheater would make unbelievable spray transfers and hit crazy headshots, they tried to throw his teammates ⁠— and ultimately the Overwatch tribunal members ⁠— off their scent. It failed miserably.

“Even though he acts like ‘oh my god, oh no, I’m a noob, look at me,’ the problem is his aimbot, the knob is turned up to 10, while his sneakiness level is on like four trying to blend in,” LIRIK said.

The streamer used an analogy to try and describe it, comparing the hacker trying to fit in with his teammates like a penguin who guzzled a bit too much fish.

“This guy is a noob,” he said. “He’s trying to blend in, acting. You know like a group of penguins? He’s trying to act like the other penguins, but this motherf**ker ate way more f**king fish than he lets on. He’s just chilling though, he’s acting.”

Twitch: LIRIKThe cheats were so obvious all LIRIK could do was laugh and crack jokes.

LIRIK’s chat was having a field day with the obvious cheater too, even making a reference to the hacker’s superior gaming chair and gaming socks giving him the edge moreso than hacks. 

It was an open-and-shut case, with the streamer submitting his vote to try and get the hacker taken off CS:GO’s servers. 

More than losing their account though, the hacker’s pride and ego would have also been smashed to smithereens after being labelled as quite possibly the game’s worst cheater.

Dexerto explores how Vitality was able to win their first tournament of the year at IEM Beijing, pulling out an incredible comeback against a seemingly unstoppable NaVi. 

French CSGO has made a comeback in the past two years, with Team Vitality and G2 Esports working hard to put France back on the map.
While the performance of the two best teams in the region has been admirable, reaching multiple grand finals throughout the year, they have failed to overcome their opponent on every occasion.
After their performance at Blast Premier Fall Series, Vitality looked to be in good form coming into IEM Beijing-Haidian, especially as the addition of Nabil ‘Nivera’ Benrlitom seemed to add another weapon to the Vitality arsenal.
The Frenchmen showed from the start of the group stages how dangerous they could be and how their new sixth member could change the way they approached games.
The finals of the tournament saw the two highest-rated players in the world face each other, with Oleksandr ‘s1mple Kostyliev taking on Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut. Both acting as catalysts for one of the most entertaining series of the year.
The rivalry between the two is only just starting, with a few tournaments still left before the end of the year, both prodigies are looking to claim the title of the best player of 2020.
