Two weeks ago, controversy engulfed the $10,000 Halo infinity Tournament hosted by the Magic Mushroom Clubhouse. The final series between Pro Series teams Pioneers and BuiltByGamers was spoiled by a player who allegedly cheated. Pioneers player Roman “Druk” Nasirudin tweeted accusations that BBG player Minds chased player through walls.
Though Minds denies these allegations, a newly released statement of the Magic Mushroom Clubhouse has confirmed Minds’ disqualification from the tournament and a ban from participation in future tournaments until 343 Industries issues a statement “debunking the claims.”
Although Minds has not received an in-game ban from Halo infinity343’s anti-cheat system will no doubt want to investigate the situation as BBG continues to compete in the HCS NA Pro Series every week. With the company consistently making top six positions with its current roster, the legitimacy of BBG’s success is in question and swift action is imperative if the claims turn out to be true.
While the evidence supporting the cheating allegation is still not concrete, community members have discovered it Thoughts had previously been forbidden from Halo: The Master Chief Collectionas well as Hi-Rez Studios games in tweets that have since been deleted. While the community awaits a decision from 343, Minds’ disqualification from the Magic Mushroom Clubhouse tournament means that victory and the lion’s share of the $10,000 now go to Pioneers.
