ever since the beginning of video games people have been finding ways to unfairly gain the upper hand by employing various tricks sometimes these teachers managed to get away unpunished but there are situations when they are caught red-handed and shamefully exposed in front of the entire gaming community without further ado here are 10 times that hackers match fixers aimbot users and even screen cheaters got caught and were publicly humiliated for their appalling actions kid X a top 200 overwatch player and high-profile streamer on the Korean server was banned for using him aimbot however this ban didn't happen privately since kid X was streaming when the ban hammer fell on him his use of an aimbot wasn't hidden at all Blizzard was able to find out almost immediately and managed to shut down kid X's account midstream and because this gaming company has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to dealing with cheaters kid X's ban is permanent darkside was a notorious hacker and he terrorized the guild wars PvP scene for weeks his character being dreadfully strong nearly impossible to kill and having the power of teleportation the player was reported thousands of times before the head of security for the game took control and seized Darkseid's avatar walked him up to the high place where all could see stripped the character naked made him wave goodbye then sent him falling to his death of course followed by a permanent ban in the finals of the MLG 2012 summer Championships Team Dignitas and curse na shocked the crowd the team's met before the game and decided to split the prize money regardless of the outcome and settled on playing the game as an all random all mid match where each player picks a random champion and both teams fight early in the middle lane of the map of course MLG found out about their fraudulent deal and disqualified both teams fat games a cod4 team decided to try and pull off one of the dumbest cheating attempts of all time they gave one of their new players who hadn't been playing long enough to complete the login details of the player he was replacing on the team they got caught amar turned in immediately both Diablo with a 1 the new kid and the person who gave him the login details were banned for six months and the league deducted major points from fat games at the League of Legends World Championships in 2012 Korean teen as subbu Frost was caught cheating the old-fashioned way peeking at the other team's screens ok they didn't actually look at their opponent screens but they did occasionally peek up at the big screen situated above them which displayed the locations of everyone in the game they're cheating resulted in a massive scandal and a fine of $30,000 similar to the kid X incident this scandal involves high-profile players using a m– box professional csgo players kqly and SF of Titan and epsilon respectively were caught using aimbot software in late 2014 both teams fired the cheaters from their rosters and even though kqly used the software for a week outside of competitive context he was still punished this debacle led to a bunch of other bands some justified some not the developers of h1z1 went on a massive banning spree after reports of thousands of hackers came to their attention after the band's many of the cheaters sent messages to the devs asking for forgiveness in hopes that they be allowed to play again the developers decided to lift their bans but only on one condition anyone that wanted back in had to make a youtube video explaining what they did to deserve the ban in the first place and then apologized publicly for their actions a csgo League player from PSP was banned mid-match during an ESEA livestream and everything was caught on tape as a viewer captured the exact moment when the cheater was booted from the game flex was playing as a stand-in for a couple of matches and the team leader as well as the whole team had no idea he was actually using a cheating program anyway after being caught in the act flex was banned and expelled from PSP a jury in Texas found Anthony Clark guilty of conspiracy to commit wire fraud after he and another three hackers found a way of mining in gain:feed for currency and selling it to other players the thing is that EA makes money off of these coins are deciding to interfere with their in-house business kind of means you're directly stealing from them because these hackers weren't the brightest Bunch they transfer the money directly to their bank accounts so you can see how simple it was for the authorities to find out who they were when you decide to cheat in a video game you have to make sure you don't make any money out of it because otherwise you will be legally facing charges similar to the FIFA case previously two seventeen year olds and one college freshman were making millions of yen from posting and selling cheats online until the developers of sudden attack received complaints regarding the cheats so they decided to call the police and report the ongoing scam as a result the group of businessmen got themselves a couple of charges for online fraud this was our list featuring some sneaky
