ex-iBP banned from Valve majors
By: stich
Time: 2015-01-26 23:14
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Valve have released a rare public statement forbidding numerous players from the North American betting scandal from participating in Valve sponsored events.

As previously reported, numerous players from the ex-iBP lineup were implicated in a betting scandal last August.

Valve have now come forward and banned many known players from this lineup and a few others from any Valve-sponsored events.

The story was first broken by Daily Dot, but it was only after a lengthy investigation by Valve that they were able to confirm that numerous accounts were involved in a betting ring, netting perhaps upwards of $10,000 of in-game items on this match.

The full list of those implicated in the match fixing scandal and subsequently banned by Valve is as follows:

Sam "DaZeD" Marine
Braxton "swag" Pierce
Keven "AZK" Lariviere
Joshua "steel" Nissan
Derek "dboorN" Boorn
Casey Foster (co-owner of NetcodeGuides)
Duc "cud" Pham

Valve ended their public statement with a strong sermon for any future transgressors:

Professional players, their managers, and teams’ organization staff, should under no circumstances gamble on CS:GO matches, associate with high volume CS:GO gamblers, or deliver information to others that might influence their CS:GO bets.

As more developments are sure to follow such a massive revelation, be sure to stay posted to HLTV.org for the latest news.

why isnt shahzam banned as well?

edit: i wanna remind everybody that retard hades was trying to cut valens for cud. for what reasons? lets just ask this question meanwhile he gloats like a retard.


also leaking a barely legal chicks nude pictures is a way worse than throwing a match.

2015-01-27 04:07:22
This did happen, multiple NA players have said it on stream.
2015-01-27 01:10:25
How can you leak someone elses gf's nude photos???

He sent them to his buddy and then got mad when his buddy sent them to someone else? God I hate kids.
2015-01-27 01:03:51
There is absolutely nothing wrong with leaking nudes. I would rather consider it a duty towards your fellow men.

i come back to this thread like a few days later after seeing it when it's published and half the the thread is just being spammed with "WHERE CAN I FIND IT; UPLOAD PLEASE"; like seriously?
2015-02-02 09:14:14
i leak nude pics everyday u have problem with that( i dont say chicks :DD i like those with u know hahs)
2015-01-26 23:44:40
shahzam wasn't even a part of the throw
2015-01-26 23:51:06
Who leaked whose pictures? I am so confused please answer me :(
2015-01-27 00:11:28
dboorN's ex-girlfriend i believe.
2015-01-27 00:18:48
Is there any link for those pictures?
2015-01-27 01:06:55
Did you even reads whats written in the article?
2015-01-27 07:46:20
i know right; bro GTFO honestly; you created a new account just to message this shit; and you put it in bold words. you're better off watching porn.
2015-02-02 09:15:55
What does that have to do with Valve?
2015-01-27 00:33:37
Shahzam did not gain any skins from this, he did not have anything to do with this, he just had the intel.
2015-01-27 01:09:12
with all the drama shahzam was involved with, pre-css, post-css do you honestly believe he wasnt involved in any of this shady shit?

i honestly think he just got a free snitch pass and is also a part of a huge org.

2015-01-27 01:12:43
I think if valve did a full review they could find that he was involved. Do you really think valve would just skip over him?
2015-01-27 03:09:25
i had my reservations about shahzam just being a whistleblower and not being directly involved but just now hike said on stream when he was on c9 shahzam asked him to throw a match personally. and then hiko removed him from friends, then shahzam went on to add nothing.


i think this pretty much seals the deal for me.
2015-01-27 18:20:31
What leaking a chiks pics?? who did that?
2015-01-27 17:36:40
Shazam isn't banned he plays for echo fox
2016-05-20 09:17:24
hiko: what did i just mess with
2015-01-26 23:27:56
He was aware it happened but didn't actually take part in it.

Cant really ban him for knowing something.
2015-01-26 23:28:56
ik, the point is that he is playing with a team that 3 of the members cant join into majors :D
2015-01-26 23:33:50
He is currently playing for C9...
2015-01-26 23:41:12
you're kinda lost my friend
2015-01-26 23:54:01
My bad, I jumped a line of comment, thought you were talking of Shazham (mostly because of the comment of t0ast saying that he knew but didn't take part in it like shaz during the matchfix while he did take part in it but well)
2015-01-27 00:10:27
Well he was officially playing for them, just standing in I believe.

But he did say he wants to play with the best NA team to win a major and he said the best NA team was them so...

He is fucked.
2015-01-26 23:41:42

should be perm ban. i hope they will do the same with virtus.throw too. same action was expected when sf and kqly were banned for cheating. strange how the rest of their teammates (8 player) didn't faced a ban.
2015-01-26 23:25:13
VP wasnt 10k scam.
2015-01-26 23:40:00
Actually it was not a scam. Bets were open after the match and they took advantage of it. It was immoral thing to do against your fans but not a scam.
2015-01-27 08:58:05
That's because no one could prove that they were involved in this cheating scandal.

Valve only banned these NA players because they consider having definite proof of their lack of sportsmanship, they had nothing against the Titan and Epsilon players except of Sf and KQLY.
2015-01-26 23:40:34
kqly was in a lan house playing next to four people. they were about to start the prac and he got banned. no1 else knew? and his lies for trying a cheat just that one time.
no, he was testing if the cheat is detectable after the update.

and that's why he has the balls to keep playing. he knows he will be picked by a good team again soon, or he will tell everything. just wait, time will approve this ;)

2015-01-27 00:11:15
Whether he lied or not about his cheat is irrelevant.

The fact is that there's no proof that KQLY's and Sf's teammates knew they were cheating.

You're free to make any assumption you want, but they'll remain only that: assumptions.
2015-01-27 00:13:54
in 80% of the cases you can tell one is cheating by playing with him on the internet, but 4 pro players can't see one is cheating right next to them. seems legit.
2015-01-27 00:16:14
Because people on the internet use iniuria, organner... Not something that slightly improves your aim.
2015-01-27 00:28:22
First of all, this 80% is coming straight out of your ass.

Second, let's suppose it's 80%, what makes you sure that KQLY and Sf aren't in the 20%?

Third, with a cheat correctly configured and not blatant, it's pretty hard to get caught, even by pros.

And finally, it's not because people don't know for sure if someone is cheating that they don't have suspicions. SmithzZ said that he had suspicions about KQLY after ESWC, and I'm sure he wasn't the only one, but you can't do shit with only suspicions. Maybe their teammates had suspicions (which are not enough), maybe they didn't, but either way, no proof can be brought concerning their involvement in helping a cheater.

2015-01-26 23:15:33
+1 how can a betting site have anything to do with valves majors...
2015-01-26 23:41:23
It's OBVIOUSLY the same in every sport. Of course you can't bet on your own games.. Jesus!
2015-01-26 23:50:00
1- csgl, cevo, esea these are seperate entities.

2-valve is not a governing body. they got no right to act like one now.

3- that was a shit move by the players, alas if you re betting you should be aware of the risks.

those dudes didnt make any cash apart from streaming like their eu counterparts. that does not condone their actions but you cant blame people for wanting to get paid.

also there have been dozens of reported throws from 2nd tier eu teams.

getting banned from majors i get, its their call. ban from esea cuz of a cevo match is just lpkanes way of sucking volvos dick. also that rule was made after the match in question got a bit of suspicious background. find any evidence of a throw afterwards then im game.

this is not a professional sport yet, this kind of repercussions are too heavy for the players involved.

ps: im fanboying the fuck out i know. ima be honest, i love to watch half of those guys stream, its enjoyable, i l like it, i know steel is a fucking retard alas thats who he is. but he is fun.

the rest of the damn na scene? they re hypocritical as fuck.

pasha bores me after a while, the other eu streamers are fucking boring, no characters, no real scene, no drama. langauages i dont get. etc etc.

there goes my rant. i think im done with hltv.

cheers.

final edit: richard lewis didnt do shit. it was all dboorns ex-gf. stop giving that retard praise. not even a real journalist.

>valve is not a governing body. they got no right to act like one now.

Valve has every right to act in whatever way they want. It's their tournament, their game, their service, they can invite or ban whoever they want.

2015-01-27 01:44:35
they can, correct. but he says they have no right to, valve isn't actively invested in CS like they are dota2.

The valve injection of cash in recent times has helped bolster the scene's #s ~ via skins. But all these tournaments were around before and the community did not survive because of valve. CZ, initial source release, recent 1.6 updates were all pretty horrible.
2015-01-27 04:53:51
All private entities that can allow or not to play anyone they want. Punishing infractors in a reasonable way is completely fine.
Anyone proved to be involved should be ban from competitive gaming. It happend with StarCraft in Korea.
2015-01-27 04:06:16
most common sense i've seen on this article. am not condoning the throw/fixing, but points 1,2,3 & r.lewis are on point.
2015-01-27 04:51:03
Valve - it is like NHL, FIFA, NBA etc in other sports. They set the rules, and you accept them. If you are a toxic player, then there is no difference, if it was in ESL, CSGL, CEVO or what ever. Toxic players are toxic players.
2015-01-27 10:14:54
I feel like some action needed to be taken, but banning the players from Majors kind of seems drastic. Maybe an item revert and trade ban would do justice?

They technically didn't ban anyone, they just said the direct the people to not let them play.
2015-01-26 23:15:39
If Valve wants something, they get it. Why else are we having cbble and overpass in map pool do you think?
2015-01-26 23:19:53
and what is wrong with overpass, good map
cbble=shit
2015-01-26 23:24:28
Overpass > cbble. But there are maps out there with more potential and better for competetive games such as de_tuscan and old de_season imo.
2015-01-26 23:26:20
de_tuscan was good map in 1.6, but in GO this map is bugged as fck now
2015-01-26 23:35:11
Well obviously it can be fixed lol..

2015-01-26 23:33:31
That's what i'm thinking.. Cause - And dont get me wrong - The penalty is not THAT hard.. yes it is for the ex-ibp guys (not steel) they have a chanse for qualifying for these mayors... i dont see teams as Torqued atm being able to do this... You know what i mean? like... they dont loose that much...

Might just be my silly mind tho...
2015-01-26 23:36:15
Valve majors, esea, pretty sure that cevo will ban them as well since it was in their tournament that this happened.
That doesnt leave a whole lot for a NA based team.
Which organisation will want to sign a team with no chance on winning big money and having a really shit reputation?
Im sorry, but this ban is the end of their pro careers.
2015-01-27 01:20:11
organizations might be in for sticker money too now.

If half the team can attend majors & main leagues, while other half can't - probably hard to get a team going.
2015-01-27 04:56:17
yeah. Esea already banned them
2015-01-26 23:43:46

2015-01-27 19:04:04
Honestly surprised swag and AZK were involved and convicted as well. Important to note Skadoodle wasn't.
Sad to see but at least Valve is making the details clear and doing their part. Hoping that the NA scene doesn't die from this, but it'll certainly suffer.
I guess steel isn't going to be an observer anytime soon. That's a pity.
2015-01-26 23:17:41
Well I think he can attend and/or work at any Valve sponsored tournaments, just not as a player.
2015-01-26 23:25:57
It specifically says "to not allow any of the following individuals’ participation in any capacity in Valve-sponsored events"

so I'd assume that includes the observer role. I mean, he's being paid to do it and the money comes from Valve and/or the org
2015-01-26 23:34:04
You are right, I completely missed that.

How are players from EU not banned though? Didn't the VP guys do the same? :/
2015-01-26 23:18:00
VP's case was not the same, it was bad move from them but not perma ban on valve tournaments lol
2015-01-26 23:19:05
How is it not the same..they knew they would win/loose and then bet the skins :/
2015-01-26 23:19:57
ye and pasha would win a lot of money, but the match got cancelled from csgolounge
2015-01-26 23:22:45
no, they lost match and they used that match was over and was open on cs lounge and they could easily bet on themself.steel & company did smthing diffrent
2015-01-26 23:23:15
And how is that any better?
2015-01-26 23:27:38
Because they played the match honestly. I still think they deserve a ban, but it's not as bad as what the Muricans did.
2015-01-26 23:30:52
they didnt sell their match like steel and others did?
2015-01-26 23:35:39
are u rly so stupid?

Virtus pro didnt throw a match for money. They just placed skins, it was csloung fault they allowed to bet on match that was over...

http://www.ongamers.com/articles/virtus-pro-ldlc-c..
2015-01-26 23:51:24
Read below before insulting.
2015-01-26 23:53:06
What are you even talking about you deep shit?

They played their match but since CSGOlounge didn't know that the match was already played and will be recasted off a demo so it wouldn't get DDoSed, VP guys bet because the betting was still open and they already knew the outcome of that match, but that isn't actually their fault whereas ex-iBP literally threw it intentionally to earn skins.
2015-01-26 23:23:36
Calm down, that's why I was asking but at least you insulted me, right? ;)
2015-01-26 23:29:06
It actually wasn't the same. They played the match not live because of DDOS issues, and the match was later streamed/casted after they had already lost. CSGL was not aware of the this fact and had the bets open until the start of the streamed version - giving time for VP players to bet against themselves.

Still dirty in my opinion, but they didn't throw the match on purpose.
2015-01-26 23:28:34
It's not the same, because they didn't bet on their opponents and the lost a match on purpose. They played a match, which they lost fair and square, and then noticed the match was still open for bets on CSGL.
That was honestly CSGL's fault. Not saying it was a smart move/the right move by VP.
2015-01-26 23:42:36

how do they know skadoodle was innocent but not azk/swag btw ? just curious, i trust them
2015-01-26 23:18:05
Not hard for valve to check ip history on the accounts in question and compare those to the ips used to log into the players actual accounts.

i.e. they all logged into at least one account that had winning traded to it from the smurf accounts that cud used.

Skadoodle isnt implicated because they obviously found no trace between his ip(s) and those used on the accounts.

Valve flex.
2015-01-26 23:22:15
So lets say if Skadoodle actually knew about it but said na he doesn't want any skins because of that shitty throw... that means he's clean?
2015-01-26 23:24:50
yes
2015-01-26 23:50:59

2015-01-26 23:20:13
I'm quite sure it's only the majors
2015-01-26 23:29:34
Okay, so we have to hope every other tournament/league is doing the right thing (ESEA was a good start).
2015-01-26 23:33:04
doubt it matters, banned at ESEA and majors + the hate of all fans, they will never find an organisation. Not a chance.
2015-01-26 23:39:25
ESC throw no problemino get invited to major.
Ex-IBP throw, get lifetime ban from major, ruined carrier ( swag Best player 'll miss you bra)..
Volvo want to use this case as an exemple to show that they are not laughing with this shit anymore, being 'famous' makes the valve law way more severe..
2015-01-26 23:20:27
when did ESC throw? u maybe mean alsen

2015-01-27 00:37:46
esc players did not throw
2015-01-27 10:09:53
They did bet on a match they shouldn't have. Which is the actual "wrong" part, because it is fraud, stealing people's money.
2015-01-28 02:14:29
Forgot about VP throw, the all thing is Just bull shit ! Volvo showing again that they have no clue and brain when it's comes to deal with pros and the community.
2015-01-26 23:24:44
VP didn't throw, it was a completely different situation. They played against LDLC, lost the match, that match had no streams or scores anywhere. After the match they noticed the same match was still up for betting, so they bet on LDLC. What they did was stealing, but still IMO not as bad as throwing.
I'm sure before all of the betting scandals when an opportunity like that jumps at you, many people would have done the same thing. Though that doesn't make it right.
2015-01-26 23:33:00
VP didn't throw game on purpose, is it too hard to understand? They bet after game, becouse bet was open.
2015-01-26 23:36:12
No matter how, any attempts to make money from bet should be punished !
2015-01-26 23:42:48
They get banned for throwing a game for a skins. I repeat for THROWING ON PURPOSE. Not beting. Understand the difference? Why people who bet on NCG didn't get ban if they knew about throw?
2015-01-26 23:46:03
Throwing or betting on your own game cause you know you won, makes you win skins because you knew the result !
I dont know if you understand, but throwing makes you know the result Just as betting when you know you won..

Anyway, ESC did the same thing and never get anything..
2015-01-27 00:48:25

Yes, Valve sponsored events are so far only the 250k majors (afaik). But that is what most teams hope to achieve, so i dont think anyone would want these guys in their lineups.

i know, doesn't matter.
2015-01-26 23:34:31
no, dont kick shahzam. sgares and semphis dont belong on any top team, not even a tier 2 eu team.

-sgares
-semphis
+hiko
+skadoodle

also, new organization since c9 is shit for competition. theyre content with high streaming numbers and dont care enough about winning (hiko talked about this and doesn't want to go to c9 org).
2015-01-27 05:29:07
Would be great if valve could become the governing body for CS:GO esports so player's actions would have repercussions. Org's could also get involved and a clause to their contracts stating that anyone who gets vac'ed would pay a fine since it damages the brand. Right now people are like: suck at cs > dl cheats > go pro > get money > get vac'ed > go do whatever they were doing before.
2015-01-26 23:27:00
I just don't get it, why not a 1-3year ban or something... why a lifetime ban, that's pretty stupid but w/e I guess.
2015-01-26 23:27:06
Becouse fuck the cheaters thats why. If you arent honest to your fans you wont be even after 10 years...

2015-01-26 23:29:57
Rekt newbs!

First of all when you play for the best and biggest team in NA you throw a game for like two grand worth of skins, when you can easily stream and get more cash of peoples donations alone in like 2 days, they also got PAID to play a videogame for a living and do this shit, they're stupid as PHUK.
IMO they should be banned longer from ESEA than only 1 year.

2015-01-26 23:29:58
They are banned 1 year from ESEA, because of marketing and because ESEA wants to make money.
2015-01-26 23:31:26
I know, but IMO (In my opinion) they should have been banned longer.

it was absolutely fair. they were made an example of, and rightfully so.
2015-01-26 23:34:24
Fair when we take it as a crime, not fair when we remember it's fucking skins. Skin have ruined the game seriously, if it escalates to potentially best players of NA getting banned.

Anyway, gg guys, you were retard any now it costs your career a bit.
2015-01-26 23:39:47
it was money. they didn't do it to have dope skins, they did it so they could sell them for thousands of dollars.

it was fair. they threw a match for money, and deserved to have the book thrown at them.
2015-01-26 23:41:27
Skins have value = Money.

Matchfixing is illegal in every sport, and results in jail time and such things.

They are lucky, imo.

It's not about skins but about breaking the rule and compromising the integrity of the game. If you want to make esports serious, you have to punish those who don't go in that direction.
It's the same debate about guns, guns are not a problem, people using it the wrong way are. Skins are not to blame so.
2015-01-26 23:50:13
yeah i know, but betting in csgo is often skin betting, so i mean betting overall in this case

as i said, they are retards and deserve it, but i would have made it 6 months ban + financial payment (more than what they won)
2015-01-26 23:52:15

*Torqued's best player banned from majors
*Skadoodle and Hiko are now free agents and are arguably two of NA's top players.

I hope skadoodle to cloud9 and get rid of shazam bc he is a toxic piece of shit too. GG

My only complaint is that EU players that have been caught matchfixing havent been banned from valve tournies, so i just wanna know why not?

Such a good point. Even though those players were all from totally unknown teams that can't be considered even half-pro's, this ban makes no sense to me in light of the lack of action valve have taken against players involved previously-

hopefully the rest of the PRO-scene takes this matter seriously and stops betting on matches that they in some way are close too.

The scene can never be taken seriously by outsiders
until the players take it seriously themselves.

The banned players deserved what was coming for them

Swag and AZK i doubt had too much to do with this. Honestly valve may in end up shooting themselves in the foot banning them two. Swag had soo much talent and was gonna be great. I can't see how valve can expect the e-sports community of CS to grow in the US if you take away our best guys. I could see this ban lifted in a year honestly. I doubt even then DaZed would come back and maybe steel would but i feel AZK and swag would. How is the US gonna get a good team now? C9 disband for a whole new team maybe? Hiko wont play with them and god knows they need him. Where does Skadoodle go? Obvious choice is C9 but could him and Hiko form something better? I think so maybe with Desi. Everyone knows Steel and DaZed's asses did this dont take away Swag volvo. I can't believe they dropped the hammer on them this hard. NA CS scene may not come back strong for a year or two. People are going to chew my ass out about Liquid and CLG being good but they were not and are not on a level of GX. What i think is the best option for NA is for Summit to go play with Ska... JK NA is fucked.
2015-01-26 23:55:44

2015-01-27 00:09:53
well massage needs to be sent. otherwise everything will become wild wild west bro.
2015-01-27 00:13:01
Trust me, I understand that they should definitely be punished no doubt. Maybe I'm just biased because they were NA's only decent team. But it's still a little harsh, I feel like AZK and Swag wouldn't be involved in this. I mostly sad to see them go, they're really old names in the NA cs community. Then again, AZK was caught cheating while playing competitive CoD2. So I guess his cheating ways never left :/
2015-01-27 00:19:34
ye but my opinion is that some things need to be done some msgs need to be sent. like if they get 1year ban from all tourneys and leagues that would be like free pass - yeee like we made 30K from that match and get 1year off pfff :D
lol shiiit, where can i sign for that???... think they would all have a great fcking laugh in that case.

there goes north america's hope of winning a major tournament in 2015. But it was necessary. I just feel bad for swag... he is young and can be easily swayed. But why didn't skadoodle get banned ? maybe swag transferred money/skins to cud to bet against himself and skadoodle chose not to.
2015-01-27 00:11:41
Ska is quiet guy, he probably just wanted to play and compete, while greedy jews dazed & steel conspired to make as much money as possible off all that. Wouldnt know about swag & AZK.

no problem :)

Seriously, I smelled it as I lost that bet on that day, but the seduction to cheat is just to crazy real for some.

And to be honest, I mean those are hard consequences and Valve had to did something.

but if I would be pro I would at least think about a throw here and there for sure and could only hope I am so cool not to do it.

we all cheat sometimes, so don't make a big trick cause of this. facts are real at least as it seems and everything is cool again.

Those skins are a freaking addiction for some and also I already spent more unreal money in that game then I would ever imagine if somebody had told me that before the start of csgo.

so no problem, just game on and use the next chances you hopefully get to do it for real. :)

one love, ez skins ez life. XD

I just gonna skip all the hate comments.


Sad day for NA csgo. I was a big fan of iBP, but now they lost all respect that i had for them. To throw a game for some shitty skinz, come one guys. The only hope we had to actually get close to win a MAJOR.

At least my fav player from iBP is not part of the throw. Now make a strong team with hiko.

One more question. Is that a one year ban or a lifetime ban ???
2015-01-27 00:25:56
then CLG is the best team in NA.
2015-01-27 00:26:48

penalty is too severe imo
2015-01-27 00:29:38

Well its good they punish the first guys like this, so in the future people realise that match fixing is a no go for people. im glad they punished them but i think they should get unbanned in the next 2 years. In other hand i kinda feel sorry for them, all the hours they have put in the game n its all gone like that but they can only check themselfs thru mirror n see whos the one to blame. Sad cunts :)

2015-01-27 13:51:46
Again, I'm not really talking about ex-IBP here but more the fnatic, virtus pro and LDLC guys (the EU pros which you said don't have a career either). They can put down that they won 100k tournaments and numerous smaller ones, all the result of putting in hours of training per day, to prevail in high pressure situations through teamwork. With a bit of charisma as well you can totally spin it in the kind of bullshit recruiters love to hear, and with the prize money/regular salary they've recieved over the course of their CS:GO careers they have proof to back up it wasnt just eating doritos and playing videogames for 3 years. Or they can pull a HeatoN and start their own business in the e-sports scene with the connects they've build up overtime, plenty of possibilities but yeah, a little creativity is needed, something you obviously lack.

well they bet on a game that they know the ending

Throwing or betting on your own game cause you know you won,

Professional players, their managers, and teams’ organization staff, should under no circumstances gamble on CS:GO matches, associate with high volume CS:GO gamblers, or deliver information to others that might influence their CS:GO bets.

pretty mutch what they did

They bet after the game was done,did not bet on the opponent and then lose on purpose.

There is a difference.

Also, VP along with some titan/ldlc members will be going away if u want a ban fr this.

Huh? A million is equivalent to under ten?

In those ten comments I stated that I didnt even think IBP was that good. Now im salty?

Im a cloud9 fan and im WAY TOO OLD to get salty over cs.

Dont come at the man if youre not prepared little guy. Still love ya though. You tried.

We all Remember Titan vs VP when match goes offline ...
and CSGL still has that match open after he went done ...
as i remember Taz Pasza Kqly did bet on that match by known results . and Pasza / Taz did max bet on that ...
but nobody even said a word to Virtus Pro ....

2015-01-27 02:04:57
And ?

The game was played hours before it started on lounge.

No one "threw" the game.Bets were cancelled and skins returned.
2015-01-27 02:07:02
and it means Polish the potential throwers ! ofc ..they not throwing at LAN games .... but who knows mb VP throw something online ...Valve need to checking this !
2015-01-27 02:09:25
Lol u didnt even reply to what i wrote,changed the topic completely.

I am curious as to how Valve even started researching the subject. One of their devs lost skins?

ex-ibp team should hire a lawyer. they did not cheat. this shouldn't have involved valve. this is between csgo lounge and the players. the community chooses to bet the players do not need to play their best to win.

Welcome to 2015 you fuckers. I lost 4 fire serpents on that game. With an inventory of 4 fire serpents I knew what I was doing when I betted on you, ibp, and watching that game I knew you were trying to lose. I followed you all since source and the cgs days and this is how you repay your fans? We spent our lives on the computer watching you play and we betrayed. The lost skins I can forget about,althought I prefer to have my skins back from a game that was thrown. From this point on I could care less what happens in your future. All I know is that you all wasted your lives trying to get a gaming career going, now you have to go back to what you were doing before that. Bottom line ty for banning these unethical bitches!

There is literally nothing to like about this guy at all, he's a miserable egotistical twat, who got everything he deserved and more.

VALVE, YOU HAD NO RIGHT TO DO THIS. THERE WAS AFFILIATION BETWEEN EITHER THE SITE THIS WAS DONE ON OR THE WEBSITE THEY PLACED THE BETS ON. NOR WAS THERE ANY RULES REGULATING THROWING OR MATCH FIXING. THIS SIMPLY DOES NOT HOLD UP IN A COURT OF LAW AND I HOPE SOMEONE GRANTS THEM THE FUNDS TO SHOW THAT TO YOU IN A COURT OF LAW.

not sure if trolling or not, but still:

Do you understand that noone has a right to attend valve sponsored events. It's private business. Valve can do whatever they want with their money. Even if valve said that team X can't attend because we don't like them, then it would be 100% OK, there would be nothing "illegal" of it, so no possible claims or anything.
2015-01-27 09:31:04
Does set a scary precedent.

"oh, you dont like our version of mirage, banned from majors"

The why is quite evident, but the how is sketchy.
2015-01-27 14:45:33
Well that's how private affairs work in every normal country. You are free to choose who you deal with, who you do business with and if at all etc.

Only thing that is illegal is discrimination that is forbidden by law, for example race discrimination : "you can't attend, because you are black" - an example.

2015-01-27 17:01:12
People actually go to jail for matchfixing in other sports, they should count themselves lucky.
2015-01-27 05:05:46
how does vp, titan, and epsilon get away with it?
2015-01-27 05:23:18
They need to look in to real money betting on that game. I bet they made a lot more then 10k in real money. The skins was probably just their stupid greed while the real prize was the real money betting site.
2015-01-27 05:24:37
How did that thief Moe not get caught?

I actuallt don't understand why they are banned from all futurur events? They deserve to be punished but this is ridiculous. There were cheaters playing in the last major. kHrystal, Natus is in every qualifier. This is way too harsh and late.

but that netcodes team beat LDLC...im confused. how do they throw a game when they were going to lose anyway based off skill? valve employees son mustve lost skin inventory. this game was definitely chosen unfairly out of all the other obvious throws. valve youre hilarious
2015-01-27 07:12:04
Do you think it's based off of the chances of winning the match, or evidence of placing bets, and communication?
Think before posting next time.

As a long time fan of the American counter-strike scene I am deeply dissappointed today. I started playing cs back in the beta days and really got into it when the competitive scene started to get big in the 1.5 days. I followed through many tournaments favorites being CPL events held in America. Eventually i stopped following as the source 1.6 split came along and divided the community. Over the last year or so I've become revitalized with the growth of cs go. The enjoyment I found with the glory days of 1.6 seem to be coming back with one key factor missing, the lack of an American powerhouse. A couple months ago I had never been more exciting to see an American team compete when Hiko decided to join up with the ex-iBP squad. I thought this move would finally bring American cs back into the picture. Then this scandal happens and what a blow it is to the NA scene. As much as a I love the other American teams there is just no one that can compete on the European level now that ex-iBP is gone. As a huge American cs fan we've taken an enormous step back. I guess what I hope for is a reduced ban to players like swag and AZK who seem to be culprits in a much more elaborate scheme. I've followed swag for awhile now as he has become my favorite cs player with his pure raw talent. He doesn't stream often but when he does he seems to do it for the love of the game rather than the publicity that other players do it for. He doesn't do the big giveaways or read every donation that comes forth he just plays cs and lets us all enjoy his talents. I hope fellow NA cs fanboys will endorse what I'm saying rather than flame it down for the sake of the NA cs scene. I want to see America rise and become competitive amongst the international cs competitive community again!

I still watch videos of eG team of CS 1.6 on youtube, Damn, they played for their country, defeating top teams like fnatic, Sk gaming, Na'vi, mTw etc. I still have faith in players like n0thing, Valve did the right thing. I don't think now any team will involve in match fixing, Please make CS GO like CS 1.6, Teams playing to win the tournaments, and fans cheering them up. These skins are basically destroying those old glory days.

I'm so glad Valve has the balls do ban these guys on a permanent basis. Kudos to Gabe.

These guys have noone but themselves to blame. They are all grown up men who knew what they was wrong, yet they rigged games hoping this would not reach the public.

I have absolutely no respect for their actions, and hope someone takes this further and sue them. Because we are talking about real money here, skins are not just pixels, but serious money.
