[KG] Starcraft 2 players arrested for match fixing, permanently banned

post #1 of 97

Twelve Starcraft 2 players have been found guilty of match fixing in the Korean professional scene, resulting in arrests and permanent bans from the game. The Korean eSports Association has named two of the players as Gerrard and YoDa, who face extra legal action, several people linked to organized crime have also been caught up in the scandal.

The investigation revealed that five matches were fixed in total, taking place between January and June this year. Gerrard, a coach for Team Prime has been accused of linking up players with brokers, which paid players to lose matches on purpose in order to profit.
One player known as BBoongBBoong was paid just four and a half thousand US dollars to throw a match, while other players, like YoDa, were paid upwards of $30,000 to lose. As the middle man, Gerrard was also receiving a cut from all of the profits gained from match fixing.

This isn’t the first time this has popped up either, nor is this the only game to have its professional scene called in to question. Counter-Stike:GO has had issues with match fixers in the past.

I agree, It's like saying any physical sports stars have an easy job.

Playing basketball on a Saturday arvo with mates at the park is not the same as playing in the NBA with millions of dollars on the line.

Playing Starcraft with some pals an a Friday night is not the same as competing in the E-Sports scene with millions of dollars on the line.

Why bother post? Why am I taking the time to point out your post? Btw, are you a pro-gamer?

Cheating is never good for a young community. The gaming community as been trying its damn-est to get more investors and has recently gotten more but its hard to image many more have stepped up due to the recent CS cheating report and now this. Showing to not having a fear of filling for arrests should send a clear message to current and FUTURE investors that cheating will not be tolerated. I think the Korean eSports Association handled this properly.

Why are you even posting? Most of these people make a small fraction of living wage and put more into their job than many other industries.

It's happened before.

The general initial reaction of the community was one of deep disappointment and even anger towards the offending progamers. The overall feeling among most of the community was a deep sense of betrayal. Many people closely affiliated with the e-sports scene such as the OGN commentators and Artosis worried that this scandal would ruin the reputation of e-sports and limit its growth.

Some people, especially Kim Carrier, have felt that an extremely harsh punishment must be exacted on the offenders

There's obvious BS like censoring parts of the streams such as the game timer to make it harder for any kind of illegal gambling to operate - korean scene has a hard time with it

You offered no analysis or insist into the conversation.... most be how you have nearly 4,000 posts.

@BiG StroOnZ - take your "cheeky" jabs elsewhere.

I second this. Same apply for professional of any sport. Can`t believe how much money is poured into their pocket.
