Tommey recants and apologizes for METZY cheat accusation, offers prize money

Following cheating allegations in the Twitch Rivals: Doritos Bowl Warzone tournament, METZY_B has been cleared by Tommey from 100 Thieves.
During the Twitch Rivals: Doritos Bowl tournament with 250,000 USD on the line, the event organizers disqualified streamer METZY_B and his squad following clips of suspected cheating. For some, it appeared as if METZY_B was using an aimbot.

Now, it appears METZY has been cleared of cheating in the Twitch Rivals: Doritos Bowl tournament, at least by 100 Thieves' Thomas “Tommey” Trewren.

Tommey recants METZY cheating accusation

While resident cheater hunter Tommey didn't directly get METZY kicked, his public declarations after reviewing the clips certainly didn't help.

METZY was disqualified and in the hours after he attempted to clear his name by live streaming a rather rudimentary search for cheats on his computer. Later Tommey joined METZY on stream and was given remote access where the former failed to find any evidence of hacks.

Taking to Twitter on 22nd January, Tommey admitted they were wrong to accuse METZY_B of cheating.

Tommey explained: "Fully understand the hate I’m receiving and it’s deserved. There just wasn’t enough to go by to give my opinion on 
METZY_B from the stuff I saw I believed something was off but there just wasn’t enough to go as far as it did and to have everyone saying he cheated."

Tommey then apologized to the community and admitted to being wrong in this case.

Tommey also offered up his earnings from the tournament as a sign of goodwill.

At the time of writing, the official Twitch Rivals Twitter account has not made comment on the current twist in this rather lame saga.

Though frankly Twitch, Tommey, and anyone else involved in trying to play a fair and competitive tournament could be forgiven for yesterday's debacle, with no actual anti-cheat from Activision, players and tournament organizers are left with "sus clips" and a huge degree of trust to keep things clean.
