TEAM OLD SKOOL BANNED FROM FREE FIRE INDIA CHAMPIONSHIP 2021 FOR HACKING
Free Fire e-Sports saw continued growth globally, not only in Brazil but also in other emerging countries like India. Garena, the publisher of this popular Battle Royale title, has created many tournaments with beautiful prizes that have helped to strengthen the title's relevance in the gaming ecosystem on each server.
However, since its release, Free Fire has been plagued with the problem of hacks . This is a problem that almost all other competitive titles face. Some of the players have been using third-party hacking software to gain an unfair advantage in the game. Such software ranges from hacks from Auto Aim to Antenna.
The developers have been trying to provide answers to the community, introducing a player denouncement feature and strengthening the "anti-hack " system. Free Fire has also published biweekly reports detailing the number of players banned and the hacking software used.
In the Free Fire e-Sports scene, the problem started recently, with teams being banned for cheating.
The recent entry on the list was quite shocking. Team Old Skool player Aayush was banned for cheating after being detected by the "anti-hack" system during the Free Fire India Championship 2021. Aayush was banned from all Free Fire tournaments until February 7, 2022 (one year suspension).
As a result of Aayush's cheating, Team Old Skool was disqualified from the ongoing Free Fire India Championship 2021 and will be replaced by STONE CRUSHERS.
