Following Chaos' upset 2-1 victory over MIBR yesterday in cs_summit 6 Online, Nathan "leaf" Orf and Erick "Xeppaa" Bach, their teammates, and the Chaos organization were subjected to online abuse, cheating accusations, and death threats from numerous members of the Brazilian CS:GO community. 

Chaos make Jonji and leaf official

The unjustified outrage centers around leaf's breakout performance during the series, putting up a 1.14 against Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's squad. Following the match, a number of Brazilian fans began to post "suspicious clips" of leaf, claiming they were ironclad evidence that leaf cheated in the series against MIBR. Additionally, due to steel's ban from Valve events, Chaos' coach Matthew "mCe" Elmore was also standing-in, putting more emphasis on the size of the upset.

These clips were further spread and given extra attention when FalleN agreed in a tweet that he "found the uploaded clips suspicious". This was further punctuated when Tarik "tarik" Celik signal-boosted a number of clips, with FalleN saying they were "blatant aimlocks".

Adding to the outrage in the Brazilian community was a stream reviewing the game by massively popular Brazilian streamer Alexandre "gAuLeS" Chiqueta. Over the course of a lengthy stream he held a "tribunal of justice", bringing on a number of guests to discuss the clips, which at its peak had more than 100,000 viewers. gAuLeS himself described leaf's clip as a "crime" furthering the Brazilian community's outrage and vitriol towards leaf, Xeppaa, and the Chaos organization.

While FalleN and gAuLeS have gone on to decry and disown any threats made towards leaf, their public-facing certainty that leaf cheated served as a rallying cry for their fans to hurl abuse towards the players.

The abuse and death threats towards leaf, resulted in the player making his Twitter account private. Additionally, the threats spread towards all members of Chaos organization, including staff and players from Chaos' other teams.

The social media dust-up joins other recent controversies on the part of MIBR, with the team notably becoming embroiled in a fight with FURIA over the handling of a round reset during BLAST Premier Spring 2020, and levying a fine against player Fernando "fer" Alvarenga after untoward comments made while streaming.

Additionally, steel posted a clip of MIBR's coach/manager Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia watching the BLAST Premier stream during their match against Evil Geniuses. dead responded to this allegation by bringing up steel's matchfixing ban from 2015.

The stream sniping allegation was not during mibr vs chaos on BTS. It was on mibr vs EG on Blast finals...
