Kenji was banned from Checkmate Gaming not long after the video surfaced, and has since nuked his entire Twitch and Twitter accounts. As PC Gamer reports, he has also subsequently been banned from another competition he was taking part in, the College CoD League, who have not just punished Kenji but have also disqualified his teammates “until the beginning of the 2023 Season.” The College CoD League’s full statement is below:

After an investigation into Kenji of Grand Canyon University, CCL has determined that 3rd party software to alter the game is currently installed in violation of the CCL Handbook section 4.2.4, and the following action is being taken.


Kenji is permanently banned from the CCL.

Grand Canyon University 

Grand Canyon University is disqualified from the rest of the 2022 season and post-season. All GCU players listed below that competed alongside Kenji are banned until the beginning of the 2023 Season and may return to competition in the 2023 Season. All Main league matches will be overturned to be forfeit wins for the opposing teams.





Grand Canyon University Academy 

The GCU Academy team will be permitted to continue competing in the Academy league and their record will not be affected, though Tnka will not be permitted to continue competing with them.

Activision made a huge deal last year about its implementation of Ricochet anti-cheating tech across the series, which can’t be working that well if the only way this guy was caught was by playing himself.

We’ve reached out to Checkmate Gaming for comment.
