Apex Pro CONTROVERSY arises for ALGS after Recent Bans

Estimated read time 2 min read

What happened?

Just today, the Apex Legends competitive community has been abuzz with discussions about the banning of prominent Dataminer “HYPERMYST” and Leaker “Osvaldatore”. While the initial assumption was that these bans were related to their datamining and leaking activities, a growing belief among community members suggests that they were actually penalized for utilizing cheats to circumvent datamining restrictions. This controversy has spurred some Apex Legends professionals to call for stricter repercussions against dataminers within the competitive scene.

The Controversy

The debate over whether dataminers should face consequences in the competitive Apex Legends context has been brewing for quite some time. To understand the roots of this discussion, we need to go back to last year when ALGS teams started more commonly incorporating “analysts” into their competitive rosters. While not all analysts engaged in datamining, there were instances where some did, leading to concerns about potential “competitive advantages.”

TEQ, a prominent player from Team MEAT LOVERS, voiced his opinion on the matter, stating, “The same treatment that HYPERMYST and Osvaldatore received should also be given to dataminers within the Apex Competitive context.”

Albralelie, a key member of Team FURIA, weighed in on the debate, saying, “Banning with 0 warning is extreme, but if Respawn reaches out and gives a warning, and they continue to leak, then I’d say it’s justified.” This stance highlights the importance of a fair and transparent process when dealing with dataminers, especially those in the competitive scene.

The issue at the core of this debate revolves around maintaining a level playing field in competitive Apex Legends. Datamining can provide valuable insights into the game’s mechanics, such as ring locations and upcoming changes, arguably giving an unfair advantage to teams or players who have access to this information. While it’s crucial to ensure that competitive integrity is maintained, there is also a call for clarity in rules. Do you think these two deserved to be banned? Do you agree that others in the ALGS should face consequences?
