Red Bull Flick Finland winners disqualified for cheating

The winning duo of the Finnish Finals of Red Bull Flick has been disqualified from the 2v2 tournament after FACEIT ruled that they were cheating.

Red Bull announced on Wednesday that woldes and jezayyyy were both banned following "a technical update" released this morning by FACEIT, the platform where the qualifiers are being held.

The players in question were part of a team called boss osuja who came through the qualifying stages and also beat an ENCE duo made up of Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli and Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen in a showmatch. Shortly after the tournament was over, video clips questioning the duo's legitimacy began to circulate (one of which has already topped 100,000 views on YouTube), which prompted Red Bull to announce that FACEIT would investigate the matter fully.

FACEIT blames a "technical issue introduced by last week's release" for the fact that the boss osuja duo went undetected for so long. According to the gaming platform, the problem created a delay for the pair to be banned "alongside 80 other players involved in other competitions".

eNhAnCeD, who had finished in second place in the Finnish Finals, will move on to the European closed qualifier, scheduled for May 30, in boss osuja's place. The top two duos from this tournament will progress to the Red Bull Flick Invitational, in which €20,000 ($22,000) will be on offer.

Players from G2, BIG and OG will be taking part in this tournament, which will be played in a new game mode called Hold the Flag, developed in house by Red Bull. Two slots will be available through James "⁠JZFB⁠" Bardolph's open qualifier, which will be held on Friday.

Or MM or any other csgo mode. Im quite surprised they managed to cheat on Faceit , that is quite disappointing , not like i havent met cheaters on faceit but thats once per many games and mainly on lower levels where anticheat is not necessity.
2020-05-27 17:18
Absolutely. How stupid do you have to be to cheat like that, though? It was blatant, and you'd think once they'd won a few games, they'd just stop to decrease the odds of them being detected. And who the fuck cheats in a showmatch?
2020-05-27 17:43
Cheaters dont care
2020-05-27 21:14
Yeah, every cheater is obviously disgusting, but you'd think they'd at least be smart about it.
2020-05-27 21:15
They dont care if they get caught or not

yeah im not reading that, these cheaters cheated for the prize money, wingman cheaters cheat for fun.
2020-05-27 17:42
I'm not defending the cheaters, I'm defending myself, because I don't think either of you understood my original reply.
2020-05-27 17:43
Of course they are different, I was more thinking about the format of 2v2 being much less cheater-friendly. It's so much easier to be detected in 2v2. Usually there are a lot less contact points and you only ever have maybe one encounter with an enemy per round. Being one half of a team, you're also expected to get 50% of the frags. Presumably 50% of the time someone is spectating your team, they will be looking at you. In comparison, in 5v5, there are five players that have the possibility of getting frags. There are more and longer rounds, and there's a lot more contact and a lot more players to take up the time being watched. In a 5v5 game, you're on average being spectated 20% of the time, 10% if we're talking pro games, where both teams are spectated. That leaves 90% of the time when you can do shady shit undetected. I agree with what alcazar was saying, that it's stupid to cheat on 2v2, for just the reason that I mentioned above. But cheating is much more common in Wingman compared to MM, which is what I meant with my comment. Obviously the tournament should have better anticheat standards, but I was more refering to the actual format.

When you label it "a big issue at that" at people for not wanting to read 3 redundantly long paragraphs on the internet about some random person's beliefs about why they should read their pointlessly long text wall of words is hilariously egomaniac behaviour, but you wouldn't be able to see that I suppose. See you, I got stuff to do.
2020-05-28 00:36
I'm not saying my text is important at all, I realize it's perhaps unnecessarily long. But if people shy away from reading as little as three paragraphs of text, then that is a huge issue for themselves.

2020-05-28 00:13
lol gotta love the fact that apparently these guys cheated blatantly enough in a fucking showmatch that they got caught for it, really wonder if they play it more legit if they'd still be playing or would have they still be caught with tournament play alone.

Delivering memes is our primary job =D In all honesty tho that tournament and especially the final match was such a clownfiesta. What i've seen and heard on twitter the faceit admins were just like "if they are cheating the AC will ban then 100%" fucking morons. =D
2020-05-28 15:22
lol more obvious please, why even try it with this cheap shit

Isn't there any law by which cheaters in official tournaments can be sued? Of course it depends on the country -- but in this case finnland? After all, its about price money. And it's negative publicity if cheaters participate or even win such a tournament.

Yes they can be sued.

Wall hack? Or how did they cheat?
2020-05-28 15:01
looking at their past matches these guys were lvl 7 faceit? it should have been fishy from the beginning, how could these guys even be on par with pro aimers
2020-05-28 15:18
everybody here in finland knew they were cheating, they beat almost every lvl 10 team in the qualifier 3-0.
2020-05-28 16:39
lol its stupid
2020-05-28 18:19
it is. and they even tried to tell everyone that they're legit after the game when people started calling them out
