Mixed reactions from CS: GO pros on Twitter regarding the Leaf case

Evil Geniuses player “tarik” has posted a tweet with the clips from the match that serves as the evidence against Leaf.

Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, from MiBR has also commented on this post. Funnily enough, FalleN himself has been the target of such accusations before. Although FalleN’s comment was followed by a tweet in which he said

“I don’t like to accuse anyone of cheating without evidence, they’ve done this to me in the past and it can be a great injustice. Let’s wait for the championship to find out is just what we can do. I found the uploaded clips suspicious yes”

Every post about this issue is sparking a debate in the comments section. Some believe that Leaf is not a cheater even though the clips do look suspicious.

Erik “fl0m” Flom from Mythic tweeted about this issue calling it unacceptable. He adds that he does not consider Leaf to be a cheater. This tweet too has an entire debate in its comment thread.

It has only been a week since MiBR had a heated back and forth with Furia on Twitter. Fans all over Twitter have been calling the Brazilian CS: GO fanbase passionate but toxic. Now, Leaf may be an alleged cheater, but sending him death threats, or sending anyone death threats for that matter, is far from acceptable.
