Sekosama finished on 205 points, seven ahead of second place. However,
after the final results videos of him teaming up with another contestant
started to come out and he was called off immediately from his winning
Sekosama’s ‘teammate’ would loot health packs and other important items, and
leave them at safe spots for him to pick up without going around.
Not only that he will also spot the enemy players and let Sekosama kill him for
extra elimination points.
Well, if that is not enough, there is proof that both of them were using coms
in between the match which was heard by another nearby player in the game.
They did it for 12 matches straight which gave him a huge advantage in points
and ultimately led to his win but he was called off immediately.
Well, they were not lucky enough as just a couple of hours later Epic officials finally
acknowledged the incident and dropped him off his top position, but Sekosama
openly denies that he was aware of any teaming going up and that he won the
match due to his “own ability.”
There are some other members which also confirms that he was using comms
out of the game to celebrate and not in between the match.
Under section 8.2.2 of the FNCS ruleset, “players may not work together to deceive or otherwise cheat other players during any match.”
There were rumours that his ban was permanent which he clarifies later that it is only for 14 days, in the past the same incidents have got players to ban for somewhere between 30 to 60 days.
