Controversies

There are several controversies surrounding the professional eSports team, Fnatic. In 2012, one of their players, Meteos, was caught Elo boosting, which is a form of cheating in the online game League of Legends. This led to the team being fined and Meteos being suspended.

In 2014, another one of their players, Kori, was caught cheating in the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive by using an aimbot. This led to him being banned from playing in any professional tournaments.

In 2016, yet another one of their players, Rekkles, was caught using an aimbot in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He was not banned from playing, but was given a warning and had his winnings from the tournament in which he used the aimbot confiscated.
