Parabellum Esports’ Rainbow Six Siege player “Luiz’ has been banned from the game for using cheats.
Back in January, the Canadian Division champions of Altiora surprised everyone by qualifying for the Six Invitational 2021. The organization even accepted to join North American League for the 2021 season, with a new US-based squad. However, due to some issues, Altiora eventually decided to leave the R6 scene entirely, leading the players to keep their 2021 SI spot under the new organization of Parabellum Esports.
Parabellum’s R6 squad included 3 Altiora members who were joined by Luiz and KoolAid to form a new roster. This team has been playing in the North American Challenger League without any issues; however, things have now started to go wrong for Parabellum.
Loïc “Luiz“ Langlais, who joined the team in March, has now received an in-game BattlEye ban. This ban came after a suspicious ranked clip was shared on Twitter, where it seemed he was using wallhacks.
‘Luiz’ did try to shrug off these claims saying that he just got “extremely lucky”, confirming that he was indeed playing the match and his account wasn’t stolen. However, more clips were shared later from that same match, which put together a strong case of ‘Luiz’ using cheats.
However, now receiving the ban, Luiz has admitted to cheating in the match shown above in a Twitlonger post (Luiz’s Tweet has now been deleted).
Luiz apparently used an exploit that uses an Intel Graphics software to enable wallhacks (It has been patched now). Luiz most likely threw his entire career and the chance to play at the Six Invitational because of his rash decisions. This will stand as a statement of what not to do for aspiring professional players.
Parabellum Esports has announced the suspension of Luiz from the team without pay and confirmed he was not included in the SI roster, which will be revealed soon.
Parabellum recently suspended their coach Matthew “Okward1HP” Smedley due to “inappropriate comments” made to a minor. And now the organization has to deal with another controversy before getting to play in the Six Invitationals.
Parabellum Esports has requested Ubisoft for further assistance, as they still have to finish the rest of the NACL season, most likely with an emergency replacement.
