Former iBUYPOWER member Braxton "swag" Pierce has apologised to his fans for his involvement in the match-fixing scandal that is rocking the North American CS:GO scene.
Braxton "swag" Pierce is one of seven people that Valve has banned from all future major CS:GO tournaments following their involvement in a betting ring that netted over $10,000 with just one CEVO match.
In a statement issued on Facebook, he confirmed his involvement in fixing the CEVO match in question and admitted it was a very thoughtless thing to do, also considering he has no interest in skins.
Still, he stressed that he was not the benefactor from this scandal to the same extent as some other players and that his involvement was "nowhere near" that of "the person organizing this".
"First and foremost I want to apologize to all the fans and sponsors I let down," he wrote on Facebook.
"I was aware of what was happening and allowed it to happen without saying anything. Stealing from people is wrong, and I got what I deserved.
"I just wanted to reach out to people online and formally apologize because I feel like it is owed. I feel it is important people know that I was not the benefactor from this scandal like some of the other players were.
"I received very few skins in comparison to some of the other players and I honestly don't know why as I could careless about skins.
"If you've seen my inventory I still use half of the default skins. I understand by taking one skin, I am wrong, and should be banned.
"I just wanted the public to know my level of involvement was no where near the person organizing this."
swag reckons that the bans handed today were "necessary" to set a precedent for future players and hopes Valve and other tournament organisers will one day let him compete again.
"This is very unfortunate for me moving forward but the ban was necessary in order to set a precedent for future players to come," he says.
"I hope one day valve may have mercy on me and let me compete again. Until then I am deeply sorry to all my fans and everyone that supported me that I was involved in this, and not just because we got caught."
That is funny
Despite what happened, i liked swag; best of luck to future endeavours. <3
apologizing after getting caught? no way homey get fucking rekt and enjoy your next career in mcds
This is not about skins. You and you teammates Throw that match which is why you for banned. This is Not CSGL Ban.

On the contrary, justice was served.
The fact that scumbags like Steel and Dazed are gone is just good news for the whole scene in general.
And Its really a good thing that valve got involved in this and shows no mercy to this kind of fraud of thousands of dollars.
he pretty much ruined swag's career :|
Swag should be old enough to take own decision. If not.. if he's this easily impressionable, maybe it's healthy for him to take a break from video games, and work up his personality.
Either way, it's sad to lose one of the best players in CSGO. Hope to see him again.
Might seem that way sitting at your pc.
feel bad for swag and azk
maybe could even have approached valve, got a deal.
it's too late now
Lies or cowardice, whichever, he doesn't deserve forgiveness
"I hope I can come back because i stole less than everyone else"
Na na na na
Hey hey hey
"Until then I am deeply sorry to all my fans and everyone that supported me that I was involved in this, and not just because we got caught"
you wont say shit about this if you didnt get caught
Well at least my fav player from that roster is still in the game. Now make a strong team with hiko and show what you can do.
Swag you still young. People make mistakes, i hope we see you back in a year.
This is a serious thing, even a crime.
srsly? Who cares how much you gained? You took part in match fixing, which ,by law, is illegal. Hope to never see the 7 of you near cs again :)

His motive and intentions for throwing obviously must have been the same as the ringleaders'. The fact that he didn't receive the same number of skins as others is not an excuse in any way. He still took part of a big time fraud.
Hopefully we won't have to see anymore scandals like this ever again. And indefinite bans is a good way to go, imo.
the first one too to own up.
maybe a 5 year ban?
the rest for life still.
Felt kinda bad for dazed, but he was the IGL to those people.
Valve doing business, nice to see that. cheers.
are you fucking kidding me?
DaZeD was the mentor of all this shit.
And if it is mercy and sympathy that he seeks, too soon swag, too soon.
Most youngsters can't appologize without having a little excuse or self-assurance in their defense.
I'm not pardoning his attitude, I'm simply justifying his behavior (about his apology , not his involvement in the scandal).
and to people who say "18 year olds are a adults, he isn't young"... true, but to me 18 year olds are like little tweens I want to punch in the face... they are young and socially inexperienced humans.

so young and so dumb
in a time when it's incredibly easy for pros to make tons of money from CS, they threw it all away for some stupid ass skins! oh my god is this real life?
hope they never get to play this game anymore. RIP
If there was an Association for CS it would be suing them for bring the game in to disrepute with possible fraud convictions that's a blackball for the rest of your life, tbh they are lucky with just a one year ban, ESEA have the right to extend it too.

Dumb of people to throw in CS anyway with the rapid growth rate, along with the salaries they receive
what a pusseh

But but but they did it worse....
Take it like a man swag.
The fact that he is a talented CS:GO player does not grant him the right to do whatever he wants to do and get away with it.

And with these kind of odds they wouldn't win much anyway by betting on themselves and winning.

Keep the bans coming , im having an orgasm .
Problem is, at some point we might see ourselves banning (almost) the entire scene...
cry more murcan fangays
It corrupts, destroys and dosent benefit at all if you ask me... I will never see any worth or point in an immaterial thing "costing" 300 dollars.
ur appology wont back my skins bastard fuck u
Really had some potential there...

Valve, if this is your sense of justice I have lost all faith in you.

And what your retarded little brain fails to comprehend is they are not banned for getting skins but for purposely throwing a game. I dont give 2 shits what kind of stat that little phaggot had.

The actual saying is "Couldn't care less", saying you Could care less means that you care.
"I understand by taking one skin, I am wrong, and should be banned."
To me, that clearly shows that he does not understand the reality of the matter. This is not about fucking skins. This is about match fixing, money, integrity and trust.
People don't get it that skins they've got are secondary thing. Losing on purpose is what matters most.
That's why it's kind of funny when people compare it to LDLC/VP betting on already finished game. BTW: sth like this VP/LDLC thing won't be possible anymore since Valve forbidden all players to bet (yes I know it's still technically possible, but much less people will try it).
This sentence doesn't exist young man
Good that he didnt write should off somewhere...
Show his inventory worth?
To my mind when it comes to the skins concept that was introduced into csgo it was a blatant experiment carried out on a hugely neglected competitive tf2 community; which explored different methods of monetizing different aspects of the game that they would then implement into dota2 and generate some serious money in the process.
Honestly though that sentence doesn't exist and makes very little sense. Infact it makes more sense for the reverse of what he wanted to use it for.
It's a god damn tragedy.
VALVE PLZ ANSWER:)
He knew about it and refused to do anything about it.
When the thing you are asked to do is wrong you do not do it you stand up for your self and call it a day with these people.
He could of there and then said no and actually made this public, instead he chose not to trying to go behind the fans and the organisations back thinking things like those will never go public.
Guess what boys wrong doings always get outside in the light for every one to see it might take years some times even 10 or more but they do come out.
The only way he should be pardoned is if he didn't know about this thing which isn't the case and the fact that he excuses him self infront of the community suggest hes guilty.
It is over don't care how good he is he screw'd him self over when he decided to not file a complaint against hes own team and manager/orga been pushed to do wrong things.
Where is Steel, Dazed and Azk? And they are adults..they knew what they were dealing..Hope lifetime ban for them..
But Valve should consider unbanning Swag in future.
Funny thing is that you can't even turn to a different game with ur history now.

this is some of the funniest shit ever, I love it
RIP NA CS:GO Scene 2015
The fact that money is involved is due to Valve creating skins, nice one gaben ya fat cunt
Yeah sure, I would also be mad if the team I bet on would throw the match, and they deserve to be banned like 2-3 months. but really? If u can't afford to loose, then don't bet.
Are everyone in this community like 12 years old? " buhuhu I lost my skins, they should never be allowed to play again"
Grow up, it's a game.
The worst thing is that the people was telling me that IBP throw but I defend it saying you were exhausted for jet-lag of the travel from ESLONE, at end looks like not.. that was a throw, and i lost the best skins i had
