Na'Vi skipping ESL One Mumbai

Among the top tier teams that will attend the tournament, Ninjas in Pyjamas and Alliance have already been confirmed for the tournament. Meanwhile, according to Cr1t, Evil Geniuses might not be able to attend it.

Apex Legends' pro player cheating

ElmZero, the player who has been allegedly found cheating, has been dropped from Zenith esports.

He was in the process of joining Zenith Esports. His methods first came to light when Team Liquid’s player, Rogue, posted a video of him on Twitter which was captured during a pro scrim match. It seemed that he was using an aimbot. Later, Paladins pro Envy posted a different video too which apparently showed ElmZero cheating.

After the evidence mounted up, Zenith esports tweeted out that they had removed ElmZero from the trials.

5 million Auto Chess subscribers!
