FACEIT’s Milos Nedeljkovic, better known as ‘FACEIT Mikey’, has revealed that a young up-and-coming Danish CS:GO player br0 has been banned from the FACEIT Pro League permanently.
The news comes just days after the shocking revelations about OpTic India’s Nikhil ‘forsaken’ Kumawat who was caught cheating on LAN at the $100,000 eXTREMESLAND 2018 event and proven to have used the same hacks at the ESL India Premiership Fall finals.
Little is known about about br0 other than the fact that he is a younger player, but Mikey says that he has been found to own an old VAC banned account that was linked to his previous FACEIT account.
“Danish player br0 has been permanently banned from FPL Circuit after we discovered a VAC account that belongs to him and is tied to his previous FACEIT account,” FACEIT’s Partnerships Manager explained. “Don’t touch cheats kids, sooner or later it will come to light.”

In a Reddit thread about the situation, one user claimed that br0 created his current account three years ago and that he would have been just 12 years old at the time.
While we cannot currently verify that information, it raises a question of just how young he was when he received a his VAC ban.
