Somnus` M and fy don't believe cheating accusations against top-division team Knights


Lu "Somnus` M" Yao and Xu "fy" Linsen commented on the alleged cheating by Knights in DPC 2023 CN. Despite the evidence reportedly sent to Valve, the former PSG.LGD teammates do not want to believe this is true. Their stream summary was translated by Chinese Dota in A Nutshell Twitter.

Somnus` M expressed strong disbelief that players can cheat in Division 1 matches. He thinks the whole idea is "funny and ridiculous". But the midlaner didn't watch the video with the investigation by a Chinese caster who, as Somnus thinks, did it for attention. His "instincts tell him" pro players wouldn't cheat in the official matches.

Fy shared a similar opinion. He trusts Chong "FelixCiaoBa" Wei Lun and thinks that it's wrong and insulting to accuse someone of foul play.

Not every player agreed with their opinion. Team Aster's carry Monet and ex-coach LaNm liked the post about the alleged map hack usage. There's also a rumor that Aster players felt that Knights were cheating against them, claims CN Dota in A Nutshell Twitter user.

Knights were accused of cheating in the DPC 2023 CN Division 1 games after winning against PSG.LGD and Invictus Gaming. Team Aster managed to beat them 2:1. A Chinese caster investigated their play and found many suspicious actions. The league operator, Perfect Worlds, reportedly sent the evidence to Valve.
