Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson recently tweeted that he got a Valve Anti Cheat (VAC) ban.
KRIMZ is the oldest member in FNATIC’s current CS:GO roster. He has been playing for the organization since 2016. And now his steam account says “0 day(s) since the last ban” which means he certainly received the VAC ban.
It could just be a false positive from the Anti-Cheat system considering the fact that he’s not banned in Faceit yet.
Fnatic successfully managed to qualify for the playoffs in Flashpoint Season 2. Their next match will be up against Dignitas on 1st December. If Krimz cannot recover his steam id by then, he might not be eligible to take part in that match.
Krimz is an extraordinary support player. He has won a huge number of tournaments with FNATIC. His legendary teamwork with Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer made them a formidable duo when FNATIC was at their peak.
The incident went viral following Krimz’s tweet. There were mixed reactions from the community. Some members of the CSGO community think he actually cheated while others believe it is just a false positive from the anti Cheat system thus it should get fixed soon.
Fnatic seems to have some bad luck considering two of their players got serious accusations against them. Firstly, Robin “flusha” Ronnquist was convicted of tax evasion and now the accusation of cheating against Krimz.
There is no further information about the incident as of writing. Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming updates.
