It’s another unfortunate story that comes from the losing team of the recent clash between MIBR (GS#14) versus Chaos (GS#39) on the 22nd of June, resulting in teams going the full three rounds. Chaos pulled ahead in the end after an overtime situation on Inferno resulted in clutch moments from Chaos pulling away with a final scoreline on Inferno (17-19/1-2) for cs_summit 6 North American region.

Even more surprising is that Chaos was playing undermanned, as Steel was in a different event; Chaos coach had to step in and play for the team.

While fans of MIBR took to Twitter and Twitch during the match to mock the US team Chaos for the Twin Towers attack, the post-match somehow became worse, as thousands of fans of MIBR began threatening members of Chaos on Twitter with death threats, and accusations of them cheating. These accusations were, once again, spurred on by MIBR members prodding the fire and sharing clips that they assumed were evidence of Chaos member Nathan ‘leaf’ Orf using aim-hack.

MIBR and death threats levied at whomever they play, name a more iconic duo.

This comes surprisingly recently after MIBR was just in the news for their under-handed tactics against FURIA and weaponizing their interestingly rabid fan-base to skew results in their favor via threats on Twitter.

Nathan Orf has made his Twitter profile private in an attempt to dodge a large amount of hatred coming his way due to his key role in defeating the team, as many fans that watched the stream noted that he had interesting moments that seemed to imply he was aim-locking on the enemy team.

This isn’t the first time that it’s happened within Counter-Strike: Global Offensive; the impeccable ZywOo and s1mple both have struggled with accusations being lobbed their way due to how streams simply relay the information towards fans of game play. Anthony ‘Vanity’ Malaspina took to Twitter to break down precisely how the clips occurred, proving that they couldn’t be aim-hacking.

For his efforts, he reported that he’s received roughly 300 death threats alone; likely far less than Nathan along with teammate Erick ‘Xeppaa’ Bach.

Erik Flom took to Twitter as well, urging users to calm themselves and not whip everyone into a frenzy based on theories and accusations. Other streamers based in Brazil have been watching the video with great scrutiny, streaming VODs that apparently ‘prove’ that Chaos was cheating.

Players from MIBR have continued to throw fuel into the fire on Twitter, encouraging their fans to rally against Chaos.

Interestingly, Chaos was expected to lose, and had every excuse to; without Steel (who was in a Road to Rio event) they needed to have their coach step up ‘mCe’ and play in a qualifier. They earned a hard-fought victory that places them deeper in a wild competition that could very well be the origin story for Chaos within professional Counter-Strike.

It’s worth noting that the raw clips, as they were seen, were suspicious at least. However, there are multiple layers of anti-cheat and admins that are responsible for discerning whether cheating is being used. Further breakdowns by ‘Vanity’ help completely dismantle the argument. Calling for the death of kids because your favored team lost seems…concerning at best.
