Jokerr Faced Hard Time in School After Being Accused of Hacking in BGMI
The community's actions can lead to agony for a BGMI player.
It is not easy being a professional BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) player, especially if you are an upcoming talent who is putting up good performances while taking down established players and teams on your way up the ladder. One of Global Esports' BGMI players, Khush "Jokerr" Singh, went through a particularly challenging phase in his life when the entire team was being accused of cheating by the community.
According to Dr. Rushindra Sinha - CEO and Founder of Global Esports, everyone started distancing themselves from Jokerr in his school and he got left out, as the blatant cheating claims started doing the rounds.
He spoke about this in a recent livestream while explaining in detail all the measures taken by the organization to prove that its BGMI players were actually not cheating or involved in any such practices.
CEO of Global Esports reveals what Jokerr went through in school due to BGMI hacking accusations the team faced
The Global Esports BGMI team has fought through a lot of tough times to reach where it currently stands today. Amongst other challenges, it had to overcome cheating allegations from the community, along with the hate that stems due to it.
While the players dealt with it quietly on the professional front, letting their performances be a representation of their response. Rushindra in a recent livestream highlighted what the Global Esports organization had to do to make sure that its BGMI team was not involved in any form of cheating.
"I have checked the players phones, I have checked the players recordings, Vatsal (VP of Esports) has checked the players phones and recordings, Mayavi (Analyst) has checked the players phones and recordings, we have shared everything with Krafton, we have shared everything with Tesseract, when they won the chicken dinner in the game I was standing behind them. Even after all this if they are hacking, they will officially become the best conman in India," explained Rushindra.
He further pointed out that the players are actually working really hard and that all these hacking accusations affected the team both positively and negatively. On one hand they feel proud about their performance being so good that these accusations are coming up, however the hate and toxicity that comes with it, drags them down.
Giving an example of this, Rushindra went on to reveal how Jokerr was treated in his school when he had just joined Global Esports and compared it to when the cheating accusations started to surface.
"When Jokerr had joined GE, all his friends at school had become such big fans of his. They were excited and used to click selfies with him," said Rushindra, "Then hacking allegation came and Jokerr found himself sitting alone in the last bench, no one spoke to him and instead called him a hacker, just because the community called him one."
This is what Jokerr had to face in school due to his performance on the server, just because the community painted the team in a bad picture without any solid prove or evidence.
