imagine blatantly cheating at the game and being celebrated to this level after you retire. look how hard he dropped off after the VACening happened with emilio, kqly, smn & sf etc getting banned. his knowledge and skill dropped off a cliff. smn said at the time that 'at least 30% of the pro scene' were cheating. you think theres nobody else at pro level who cheated? he stopped using whatever he was using and it showed. after 2015 he barely achieved anything he must be laughing his ass off that he got away with it.

Imagine being so horribly bad at the game that you cant even tell when someone is cheating... The VACening was in 2014 and flusha was HLTV top 10 2014,2015 & 2016. "Being dumb is like being dead, it is not hard on you, but on your family and friends" The reason flusha "dropped of" is because all of swedish cs dropped of. They were not able to adapt to the meta like other teams and therefore got left behind. Same with NiP, they didnt really achieve much at all after Astralis changed the meta.

i know im bad at the game. i dont care about that. but ive been playing on and off since 2004 and following the competitive scene since 2008. if you actually think flusha never cheated when other pros were banned and one of those even said plenty others were using as well, you're delusional. there isnt a single other player at the top even simple or zywoo who have anywhere near as many outrageously suspicious clips as flusha does.
2023-08-30 10:46
3 replies
The reason why pros dont have this many "suspicious" clips is because what he did then is just what happens every game nowadays. In Ropz early career in fpl and in his first team, he also got accused of cheating by plenty of pros. And that guy does way crazier shit than flusha ever did. You think he cheats too? Have you seen his flicks and spray transfers?
2023-08-31 17:20
2 replies
theres a difference between flicks and sprays and some of the absolutely blatant shit flusha used to do like clicking to shoot randomly and the aim just happens to snap and direct him to where the enemy is through solid objects like what he did vs navi on dust2 A site.. unnatural aim adjustments like the inferno short clip where hes spraying a close range opponent point blank and the aim adjusts to headshot the guy in the background. NOBODY would have been able to naturally make that adjustment because you would never even notice the guy in the back when full mouse1'ing an enemy right in your face. anyway wasting my time its clear some people just can't accept that there was still cheaters at the top of the scene even after half a dozen pro players got banned. you really think they caught all of them? madness
2023-09-06 18:23
1 reply
The fact that you dont know that the streams used to make shit extremely delayed tells me you dont know much about the game. Also the fact that he was running at the same time as he got the guy in the background, if you are running and shooting where you are pointing doesnt really matter. The bullets fly randomly when you run and shoot. You really dont think they were looking extremely hard at what he was doing during tournaments? He was accused of cheating ALOT for a long time and he was still HLTV top 10 2 years after the big ban wave started.

Damn so many silvers on HLTV, there is no proof of him cheating and if he did cheat you dont think that 10 years of Majors and like 50 other tournaments per year would catch his cheats? Atleast use your brain a tiny bit.. In all "cheat videos" everything that happens is easily explained if you have played or even just watched pro cs before.
