Epsilon suspend CS:GO team
By: MIRAA
Time: 2015-02-01 18:13
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Epsilon have announced that they have suspended their CS:GO division pending the outcome of an investigation into match-fixing claims.

Robin "GMX" Stahmer revealed on Saturday, just 48 hours after being dismissed by Epsilon, that his former team had lost an ESEA match against OverGaming on purpose to profit from weapon skins sold by friends on CSGOLounge.

One of the players who knew about the fix was Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavigni, who confirmed on Facebook that he was told the outcome of the match in advance by a former team-mate of his.


ScreaM & co suspended by Epsilon 

Epsilon have now revealed that they are in shock with the news of their team being involved in a match-fixing probe and have suspended the players until the results of the investigation are announced.

It became apparent yesterday that a statement from our ex player, GMX, had surfaced accusing his ex team-mates of throwing a game some months ago.
We at Epsilon had absolutely no prior information about this situation and were as shocked to read this as everyone else.
Since this information came to be known, we have been working behind the scenes to gain as much data ourselves and also liaising with other bodies within the CS:GO scene such as Valve.
Firstly, we at Epsilon would like to make it clear that we absolutely do not condone cheating and exploiting systems in any way.
We have now decided to suspend the whole CS:GO team pending the results of ongoing investigations by both Valve and ESEA.
We will of course provide any more information, both when we have it, and when it is relevant to do so.

"It became apparent yesterday that a statement from our ex player, GMX, had surfaced accusing his ex team-mates of throwing a game some months ago," a statement from Epsilon reads.

"We at Epsilon had absolutely no prior information about this situation and were as shocked to read this as everyone else.

"Since this information came to be known, we have been working behind the scenes to gain as much data ourselves and also liaising with other bodies within the CS:GO scene such as Valve.

"We have now decided to suspend the whole CS:GO team pending the results of ongoing investigations by both Valve and ESEA.

"We will of course provide any more information, both when we have it, and when it is relevant to do so."

Epsilon currently have:

Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel
Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom
Joey "fxy0" Schlosser

Morgan "B1GGY" Madour (stand-in)

Lol, so they did throw.

They should get a fine from csgolounge like 10x their profit or smth and a year exclusion from tournaments

Don't forget the "pending the outcome of an investigation into match-fixing claims." part.
2015-02-01 18:23:30
If they remove the team, they must already have enough information to believe there has been match-fixing.

I'm sure they confirmed that the match was thrown already, and now they're just trying to investigate who did what to help Valve punish accordingly.
2015-02-01 18:33:43
The team hasn't been removed. Look up the definition of suspension.

2015-02-01 19:03:51
they dont need to throw only had to sign uzzii & B1GGy , and then max bet against yourself every single match = profit . well they need to throw against oG because they suck even more.
2015-02-01 19:30:05
OverGaming wasn't/isn't really that bad, they have beaten a few t2 teams back in 2014, but since B1GGY placed a bet against them this is obviously a throw
2015-02-01 20:05:51

it's funny :D
2015-02-01 18:47:24
GMX, what a shame. This guy has no honor whatsoever. I hope if he ever come back in CS, he gets no teammates to play with. He gets kicked out and his first reaction is to rat out his friends, how shameful is that. Some of you may say that with that with what I say there will be no information on malicious behaviour in the future and I say it's wrong. If GMX really regreted what he has done, he could have gone forward far before he got kicked. Don't get me wrong, match-fixing is wrong and Epsilon's player should be punished if this claim reveals itself to be true, but GMX has no kind of honor.
2015-02-01 18:47:37
"say that with that with what i say"

2015-02-01 19:16:17
And there's worse : it's a public vengence. I mean, if he had gone secretly to an ESEA admin because he felt he should report it, why not, even if it is still somewhat wrong, but here he just did it publicly and probably crushed his friends' career just for a revenge. It's shameful.

No, the next in the line would be silver 4 players, you're silver 1 if you're not cheating, so yeah, gotta wait.
2015-02-01 20:53:55
I like how Epsilon org is handling the whole thing.
Let's wait and see. Meanwhile I will grab some popcorn and wait

NaVi could benefit from it, -starix +ScreaM (great bet) since nationality seems to be no problem in NaVi

Hahahah , Bitches .... I love this , keep bans coming for every little shit out there.

In real sports these gentlemen would have been in jail by now ... Ban is the least to do for those shitheads when real money is involved.

So , more bans please... F... them as much as possible as they do/did to us by throwing.

nothing's proven yet.... yet people are extremely quick to jump ship :)

so much for being supportive of the scene.
2015-02-01 21:24:09
Valve added skins to make money off of it.
Skins > Integrity
