Geguri done worldwide headlines in Jun 2016 when she was poorly indicted of aimhacking in an central tournament. Suspicion was triggered given she was “too good”; her rodent pointing shown on promote had been so well-developed that many viewers undisguised refused to trust it was humanly possible. The debate held on glow quickly, and her compare opponents escalated a conditions by earnest to retire from Overwatch if Geguri was clean. One quite angry member even threatened to revisit her residence with a blade in hand.

“It hasn’t been prolonged given I’ve started to play a organisation diversion again, so yes, there really is a lot of pressure,” Geguri said. “[But] my idea this deteriorate is to strech a quarterfinals, and we will be operative hard.”
