In a chat with us, the controversial CSGO captain inadvertently admitted to selling cheats.
The CSGO scene in India has been in qute a turmoil recently. After the whole Forsaken fiasco, we had the captain of Slaughter Rage Army, Bubun The_Guru Pandey being accused of cheating by a professional CSGO player on Facebook.
The accusations were covered by many media houses including ours. We were contacted by Bubun then to make changes to our headline, saying that he was “not under scanner”. On seeing that we had not done it, we were contacted again on the day of writing this article. We then decided to make the necessary changes that he had requested. We would also like to point out that despite the fact that we couldn’t find the cheat, which was mentioned in the article, on Google, it in fact is very much present on Google.
Which brings us to the main issue. On being asked if the person who used the cheat was his teammate, Bubun replied that he was a friend. A close one. He also said that “he took money from him and gave him” the cheat. He said that he “searched net: and “gave him”. On being asked why he specifically contacted Bubun, he said, “I have a café in my locality. I hosted a local event. So he was like, we agreed that if he goes to the final with the cheat, I will take 50% of his winning. And I will stand behind him so that no one sees him executing the cheat.”
On being asked how much Bubun was paid for the cheat, he replied Rs 5000 ($70).
According to ESL rules, selling cheats is an offence which can result in a ban. We have emailed ESL India regarding the incident. We will update the article as soon as we receive a reply.
