cheating chaos esports club brazilian csgo brazil Erick Xeppaa Bach and Nathan leaf Orf

Members of Chaos Esports Club‘s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) team face an outpouring of cheating allegations from the Brazilian fanbase. On June 22, Chaos matched up against Brazilian giant MiBR during the cs_summit 6 North American Regional Qualifier. After trading maps, Chaos upset MiBR and ended the series 2-1.

While North American fans sat back and rejoiced in Chaos’s victory, trouble stirred online. Professional CSGO player Tarik “tarik” Celik expressed suspicion over several clips of Chaos players Erick “Xeppaa” Bach and Nathan “leaf” Orf. In one of his tweets, Tarik posted footage of what appeared to be leaf aim-locking on enemy heads through walls. He stated, “not going to lie, the aimlock clips look sketch to me.” However, he slightly backtracked and said, “I ain’t sayin’ nothin’ though. I never understood how that kind of stuff happens so regularly for some people.”

The chaos ensues

In response, MiBR player Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo de Alcântara Sguario tweeted at Tarik saying the aim locks are “blatant.” After a few minutes, he rescinded his comment and apologized, saying, ” I didn’t choose my words properly in English.”

Immediately, both leaf and Xeppaa received an influx of death threats and messages on social media. The Brazilian CSGO community, especially its bettors, is known for its abrasive behavior. The abuse was so extensive that 16-year-old leaf closed his profile to the public.

Shortly after, FalleN tweeted in his native language, Portuguese, trying to calm the situation. He essentially stated he doesn’t like accusing others of cheating but that there needs to be an official stance. Furthermore, he made a call for action, saying he doesn’t want fans to take sides. Finally, FalleN condemned the abusers for threatening leaf and Chaos.

Currently, the accusations haven’t stopped. Haters and fans alike are still questioning the original clips and discussing the situation. Until a professional decision is made, the community should respect the privacy and well-being of Chaos’s members.
