TACO calls Fnatic’s JW “a f***ing liar” over CS:GO radar bug exploit

CS:GO pros Jesper ‘JW’ Wecksell and Epitácio ‘TACO‘ de Melo traded shots on Twitter after a conversation of an old radar bug in the game devolved into accusations and bitter words ahead of the IEM Katowice Major.

The bug in question allows players near or in smokes to use a key bind that makes the radar scale full size in order to make the enemy indicator bigger as the smoke dissipates. Although it isn’t technically a cheat, some pros view its use as unethical.

After TACO had requested ESL to make a couple of rule changes prior to the start of the IEM Katowice Major, many notable figures in the scene chimed in. But an exchange between Fnatic’s JW and MIBR’s TACO saw the MIBR rifleman fire off an expletive-filled response to his competitor.

TACO had made a few snide comments alluding to JW’s supposed history of using the bug. JW defended himself by telling a different account of his time with the bug while also advising TACO to essentially stay in his lane with the accusations. Taco didn’t appreciate the response.

“You’re a fucking liar, you have 0 ethic,” TACO said. “I don’t give a shit for what you have done in the past and this topic is dead for me.”

The reaction came as a surprise to many given the seemingly out of nowhere response from TACO.

JW kept to his argument after TACO doubled down on his accusations, but the response from the MiBR player seemed to mar the bigger conversation at hand.

Both Fnatic and MiBR will be competing at the IEM Katowice Major, and it will be interesting how this interaction unfolds as The New Challengers Stage for the tournament kicks off February 13.
