It's pretty amazing how the thread went from "Argentina vs Brazil - please watch this game" to "Let's bash someone who was banned for apparently hacking" to "Bash everyone who banned the guy" to a discussion on other cheaters,etc. Cheating/hacking is a difficult subject and something that has and will continue to plague the gaming scene for a long time. Sometimes it's painstakingly obvious that someone is hacking (for eg, player x) and you would have to be paid to disagree that they hack. Meanwhile, player y is a "suspicious" individual who is inconsistent but does some almost unhumanlike plays at times. It's not uncommon for people to get wrongfully banned if they weren't cheating after all, but that's just the way it is. The only concrete way to confirm if someone is cheating is if they perform similarly at LAN. On the same token, I wouldn't be surprised if some "suspicious" individuals didn't perform similarly at LAN due to the insane pressure on their shoulders and banned on the spot. Dealing with hackers is the 21st century witch hunt.
It's a tough thing to deal with, and it sucks that there are cheaters.
Oh I derailed the thread more, sorry.
EDIT: I'll come out and say now powah - being banned in the Brazillian leagues and coming into a thread where your legitimacy is being questioned only to make a troll post doesn't really help your case in anyone's eyes.
