guys will riot take any action?
of course, why would riot want their scene to be a second chance for matchfixers
Well ex-iBP exists, but I guess they already served their punishment.
Also I think there was a match fixing scandal in valorant already, they got 2 years. If those teams he mentioned had high stakes they will still not get more than 5 imo. Keep in mind it happened a year or 2 ago so its not gonna be longer than 2025
Most likely. I mean matchfixing is a serious thing. I think some people will get punished hard while some may get away with less. Depends on how major it was and what was the role of each player. But at the same time we have players like Brax and Steel still competing in tier 1 Valorant, so who knows.
expected from NA, trash in cs they had to match fix then run away to a easier game
meanwhile u playing 5v5 tactical shooting irl
that would be funny if i was from afghanistan
meanwhile you scamming people on the phone
meanwhile you selling furniture and "meatballs"
He isn't really Swedish. That isn't Swedish name
milan ain't an indian name either
Since when name as to do with nationality. If his parents gave him that name for some reason and he was born there/ gained Swedish nationality he is Swedish. People travel so much that a lot of people have names from other parts of the globe even tho they were born in 1 place
why would a claim to be from a nation that I'm not from. just accept it your a scammer and I sell ikea furniture
uh oh marved i hope u dont ruin this for envy
i mean, NV picked him up. same story with RISE. It's the orgs fault for picking up these players
Probably a nothingburger until 2022. As the guy says, the conclusions of the investigation are still going to take time to materialise, so Riot probably can continue brushing this off as they had successfully done before.
hopefully marved and dapr get ritghtfully banned,pieves of shit..
NoOoOO DapR sO kool, no mORe tBags iF He lEAVes
Europeans do the same thing, especially in small orgs
But there they don't investigate, if they investigated many they would also get screwed
Riot won’t do anything, is a different game. If a Cs cheater can play a match fixer too. It shouldn’t be like that but is how they are working right now. The only thing is players being kicked of their teams or people hating the players
ggs to shanks, maved, poised, tex
Tex poised will get punished for sure they did it so much and it was obvious, idk about marved and shanks though
didin't marved got benched by faze because of the match-fixing investigations?
Nobody knows why he got benched. The Team sucked hard and they somehow made it to playoffs with a lot of luck ofc. They literally became a Tier 3 Team with 0 synergy that knew someone has to go to make place for something new. I bet none of faze Players believed they could actually make it to playoffs but it's NA.
tf are u talking about, t3? lol
They sucked really hard and they made it with a lot of luck to the playoffs. feel free to re-watch the games. If faze wouldn't have made it to playoffs, you would now open Threads who faze should sign because the current Team wouldn't exist anymore. Don't tell me you knew faze will make it to playoofs? o.O
Imagine nobody match fix in Valorant.
Isn't "tactical throw" (what many Teams do) match fixing too?
Also try to explain why so many Orgs are that rich that they are literally burning Money on bad Players/Teams.
The matchfixing being referenced here, and being investigated by ESIC, involved gambling and players making money from throwing games. Thus fans who bet on the game were basically being scammed.
Not only that. These guys obv. made a lot of Money.
Yea some of them, I wouldn't say all of them. Out of the 35 people being investigated, I'm sure some were more involved than others. But yes the ones at the top made a boatload of money
I can't believe how naive you are! these people who Match fixed have Family and Friends around the Globe. Imagine now some of them knew that the Games are fixed and get rich overnight placing huge bets on the right Teams. Now try investigate in direction Asia, Africa. GL!
You guys really think they Match Fixed to get a warm Meal for Lunch? lmao!
WTF I literally said "involved gambling and players making money from throwing games". Your the one saying a tactical throw is the same thing.
Isn't it the same? You are losing on purpose and you make the Game end as you wish. It doesn't matter you place bets or not behind the scenes. It's Match fixing and this is also a reason to ban People for. Nobody wants to watch a game where they know they will lose to get easier enemies. that's not how Sports should be! There should be no org. tolerating this bs but meanwhile they do. Someone from c9 admitted they lost to get a better seed. That's a shame for eSport!
To an extent and yes I believe in the contract these pros sign with Riot there's a section stating they must try their hardest every match. But this ESIC investigation is only going on due to the gambling and large amount of money involved. Throwing and fixing are two different things, imo. Matchfixing, the two teams collaborated to fix the outcome of the match (at least in the most serious cases). Throwing would just be one team throwing a match since loosing benefits them in some ways, usually seeding. Matches being potentially "thrown" are usually due to bad format by the TO's. People also just call all seeding games "throws" and don't even take into account that teams are experimenting, since seeding games are like an official scrim.
You know it's a great Game when you know both sides would like to lose to get a better seed. We all know Riot's valorant isn't as big as they wanted it to be at this point so they won't start making Orgs who pay these Match fixers feel uneasy and maybe quit the Game completely. If you think IBUYPOWER was the only Org who Match Fixed you are a Childbrain, sry. eSport is just an another Tool for Money laundering! Even faze clan scammed people and hope you don't think that was just an coincidence. they try their best to rip off People and Crypto Currency bs is the best way to do it in eSports! WTH is FTX and how can they give TSM 210 Million Dollers? The whole scene is busted! 210 Million Dollers for Gamiing while even Top Football Clubs struggle to find a sponsor for 50 Million €. This all makes so much sense, doesn't it?
The only thing ima respond to is the seeding part. Everything else you said is irrelevant, wasn't brought up in the original post and I never brought it up. Its not just esports where teams "throw" when seeding is involved. It happens in many mainstream sports as well. Whenever a team knows who'll they'll face if they lose/win, that team will obviously pick who they want to play. Anyone would. Its not considered a throw its just the smart thing to do. Don't act like you wouldn't if you were in that situation. Win play the best team, lose play one of the not so good teams. Its a no brainer and any competitive person would do the later. This happens in all sports. Also, why are you supporting a team who has a matchfixer on it if you take all this so personally? BTW it sounds like you've been scammed 1 to many times with crypto. Next time use your brain and it wont happen.
