The entire OpTic India Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) team was dismissed from the LAN event after forsaken was found to be using hacks during matches.

Friday, October 19th has not been a good day for the OpTic Gaming Indian Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) division of OpTic India, as Nikhil "forsaken" Kumawat was reportedly caught using hack during matches at the eXTREMESLAND 2018 Asia Finals. OpTic India was then removed from the $100,000 LAN event as a result and the entire roster of OpTic India has been released from the organization. 

The reported cheating by forsaken took place during his team's match against Revolution in the Group C elimination match. Tournament officials paused the match for a period of 20 minutes when it was then revealed that the Tournament officials had found forsaken to be cheating by using hacks on his PC during the event. The team was then immediately removed from the eXTREMESLAND 2018 Asia Finals and forsaken was sent home on a flight soon after, according to CSGO2ASIA. 

Footage of forsaken refusing to allow a tournament referee to check his PC has also found its way on social media furthering incriminating the cheating activity of forsaken.
