Warzone Pro Tommey Accuses Pacesetter of Cheating in a Tournament
Call of Duty may not have anti-cheat right now, but the closest thing we’ve got right now is 100T’s Tommey. Tommey poured over VODs, deleted, and otherwise accused Pacesetter of cheating in a Warzone tournament in a recent live stream. Tommey is a name we have grown to know and trust as someone with ethics in the CoD scene. He, like us, is very concerned about integrity in the esports space. Pacesetter is a World Record holder who has been rumors whispered about him before. But now, Tommey is the one doing the research. It doesn’t look good for Pacesetter.
Super Suspicious From Pacesetter
Tommey has been pretty suspicious of Pacesetter’s gameplay performance and went to the accused Warzone cheater’s stream to ask for a monitor cam. This did not come to pass, and instead, Pacesetter was disqualified from the tournament. Why? He didn’t cooperate with tournament admin, as well as deleting Twitch/YouTube VODs. That looks even more suspicious.
This led Tommey to spend his evening live on stream, investigating Pacesetter’s suspicious potential cheating in this Warzone tournament. VODs were examined, deleted, or otherwise, in front of thousands of Tommey’s followers. Tommey wasn’t content on using clips gathered from social media, but he feels there were some very suspicious things.
Suspicious centering, constant perfect awareness of his enemies, things like this led to Tommey asking Pacesetter for a monitor cam to prove the player wasn’t cheating at Warzone. Instead of following up on the request, Pacesetter ducked out. Tommey, when he made the request, also noted not to touch his keyboard, which Pacesetter did not do, and instead began typing quickly.
There was a suggestion if this being to set music playing, but that didn’t happen. The admin wanted Pacesetters PC logs, but instead, the streamer left. It wouldn’t be too much of a leap in logic to say he was clearing things out of his logs, like hacking programs. It’s pretty easy to hide your cheating these days too, which is sad.
While we have no concrete evidence of cheating, all of this looks incredibly suspicious. Tommey did point out to his audience not to go and harass Pacesetter. People that cheat deserve to be punished, but an angry mob kicking down his door does nothing. We will say that Tommey’s investigative journalism was very impressive, making him feel like a living, breathing anti-cheat. Maybe Activision needs his help to make an anti-cheat that works? Who knows?
