Drug Bust Leads to the Arrest of World Computer Gaming Champion

/ 2 years ago


A drug bust in Ostróda, northern Poland, led to the arrest of four men, one of whom is known to be a former world champion in computer gaming. The police are said to have searched three apartments, finding and seizing drugs and illegal weapons estimated to a value of 800,000 PLN (around £140,000).

It is said that 1.5 kg of amphetamine, 10.5 kg of marijuana and several thousand ecstasy tablets were found among the narcotics. PLN 70,000 (around £12,000) in cash were also found and confiscated, along with two revolvers and 100 rounds of ammunition.

If found guilty, the suspects, aged between 24 and 30, could face a prison sentence of up to 12 years. We’re currently waiting on an update as to which gaming champion was arrested.

Update: It is believed to be 2007 Quake Championship winner Maciej”av3k” Krzykowski.

    There ain’t much wrong with having a little smoke to bring out your inner aimbot every now and then, but this kind of shit is wrong, and with weapons involved I’m pretty glad this ended how it did. Hopefully this won’t shed a bad light on the esports scene, but we’ll have to wait and see.

      IT wont among gamers but I can guarantee you someone somewhere will use this to attack gamers as a whole and try, and fail, to ban competitive gaming.

        They won’t get anywhere. That idea wouldn’t even get you to the courtroom. You cannot ban an entire industry on action of a small group of kids.

          I yeah it would never pass but some people who have have never picked up a video game in their entire lives would try to.
