(though you always should tbh)
Valve Is totally a joke
Only dumb ass teens think they need to be told explicitly that they shouldn't match fix.
Deserved life ban. NEXT!
I agree that he receives a punishment (although there were no pre-established rules), so that this does not happen again (although being sincere happens every day and in 90% of the matches) and therefore this is An important point since it weighs a lot when judging a sentence.
You can not kill a player's career if a punishment was never established from the beginning. Here the guilt is again of valve for not paying attention to something so important.
The most well-known case in the sport is Juventus a famous football club was punished but none of the players and the same club had such a severe punishment. And this case was much worse since there were many party arrangements and other fraudulent maneuvers.
Remember that the career of a player of csgo is very short, lasts less than 10 years and a punishment involving that magnitude does not seem reasonable. Being 17 is not old enough, you are still a teenager and you can make these kind of mistakes.
UNDESERVED LIFE BAN

Kids 17, not like his life is over.
Match fixing is a completely different, premeditated choice to misrepresent a professional sporting organisation
Get a clue fuckwits. Valve did the right thing, set a precedent that you just don't do that shit !
ESL granted some leniency in case of unfair situations. KQLY story might not be totally believable, but what if he did carelessly test something to get an idea about cheating and educate himself ? that doesn't deserve career ending consequences, and Valve still keep VAC accounts out of the prestigious majors. ESL should be commended for seeing that this situation is not black and white, and has nothing to do with the other situation. Bitch about it endlessly, or consider you might be wrong and look at things deeper with an open mind not just react based on your feelings instantly.
VAC'd players are still not going to affect the huge, deep competitive scene we have now, with new talent coming out of many countries and big money going into making more and more powerful teams. I don't expect any of them give a damn about VAC'd players, noone out there with a VAC ban is important, hire someone else. So who gives a fuck ??
In every sport the phrase is bringing the game into disrepute. Valve couldn't stand for that, so those players can't go to the most prestigious games, majors. Doesn't stop them trying to play elsewhere, why is that so hard to understand?

mad respect for they way you stated your thoughts and opinions, regardless of whether or not I agree with you. This guy above you though....is full blown aids.
I can't help but to relate what iBP did to what former future hall of fame baseball player, Pete Rose, did with his team. And then I compared that situation to what you said in regards to Match Fixing > Being VAC'd.
If we compare this situation to an established league with set rules, regulations, and standards, such as baseball...you find the exact same results as what you said.
Pete Rose - Game Fixing and Betting Against His Own Team - Lifetime Ban From Baseball/Ineligible for Reinstatement or Hall of Fame. He was/is considered one of the best players to every play the game.
Now compare the punishment of what Pete Rose did to current and former players who've been caught and/or accused of using steroids (pretty much the worse way to "cheat" in athletics, especially baseball).
As much as I hate seeing them get the lifetime ban, i can't argue with what Valve did...they set a precedent and they set one so extreme that no professional player would ever risk their career on something so minuscule ever again.
It's pretty fucking obvious why they can't play elsewhere. Do you actually have a brain? Kill yourself.

"if they were just punished, we would be too" - it would open floodgates to matchfixing hell.
As much as I would love to see IBP on the scene "we" can't allow an exception.
Oh, cheaters should be permabanned too. Letting them play at non Volvo sponsored events makes a mess as teams would possibly have 6 players in rosters. What a fucking nonsense.
Don't get me wrong, if it wasn't like this and it was cheating for sure in competition, cheating is basically just as bad, inexcusable and deserves life.
Now you might say "i said well known team" in England they are very well known teams.
OM had to play the champions league final vs AC Milano days after and they dont wanted to get injured players.
Juventus bought MANY games in the 90's too, won multiple championships with that.
You sure you know Something about football?
Valve do fuck up and the whole csgojackpot style betting site thing should have been jumped on way back when betting started, but they are not the ones running unregulated gambling on outcomes of leagues/tournaments using their game. They didn't have any involvement except having item trading. Thankfully when they have the position to make a big call like this they don't mess around !
Now if they would just go kamikaze on these fucking cancerous gambling sites somehow ? remember when they banned all jackpots bots.. I thought good, precedent.. later they unban them and shit ton of other sites appear so fast. Hopefully it isn't too late, its an epidemic now. Constantly see spammers with their referral codes in twitch for example, comments here.. fuck off lol

If you get vac banned you are not able to attend any Valve sponsored events so no they NEVER unban anyone who got banned.
You are talking about shit like ESL? All those leagues well its their choice to throw away any chance they would ever have of hosting a major to allow these irrelevant players in their events? Sounds retarded and match fixing is way worse than cheating it's not even in the same league of crimes, especially organized match fixing.

Next day. He wakes up. he is on the floor because they cant afford bed. HE SPENDS his last money to go to csgolounge and HIS HEART IS BROKEN. His favourite player Braxton "swag" Pierce, that was his IDOL, he wanted to be like him, he wanted swag to be his fatger, HE THREW THIS GAME. and this poor african boy just understands that his life is over, that there is no hope in this meaningless life and he commits suicide, watching at his AWP asiimov and SWAG face, his last words were : "Who is m1?" His mother dies from ebola, his little brother is alone, he dont know what to do, his only way to survive is to play rank S under name "MarKe"
Braxton "swag" Pierce is ruthless maniac and terrorist, unban him and he will do it again and again and all children in africa will die, their brothers will play rank S
just think about it, when u will write #freeswag next time...
On the age thing, and others likely peer pressuring to some extent whether directly or not, I think it's a shame for swag. If he tried to win the game anyway it would've been more obvious and everyone hates/threatens him.. if he says no no guys don't don't.. they ridicule him and maybe threaten him.. it is not a nice situation to be in and you have to feel for the guy.
Shit situation because how could ska possibly have not known about it ? he probably said fine I won't fight you but I want no skins because fuck you I'm a competitor not a scammer. If so then swag should have done the same, right ? we all make bad choices especially when we are young and easily influenced, so some leniency is deserved, but taking skins is crossing the line.
Fair enough in all cases I think. ska probably did make the right moral choice and if so I personally am super proud of him.

Even the french players, the punishment should have been forever for the future matchfixing but not for these guys.
Okay this is illegal, you don't toy with people's money but in the first place Valve should have had clear rules on these betting website (and even with skin sites, which they did as we know it).
I don't forgive him for what he has done, but the punishment is way too stupid.
FREE THAT KID VOLVO FFS
Not against it.. just thought he was banned..
PS I think it's not "healthy" when you have 1 or 2 more players benched, they're used to own playstyles and can do things around it without saying a word. sorry for englando

It would also be a slap in the face to shroud and would likely cause him to play worse from feeling like he's just a placeholder.
oh well, it is a tier3 tournament so no one cares i guess
only IF swag gets unbanned though

Valve has been pretty black and white about keeping these guys banned - it's time to get over it.
You the man ska, come back stronger. Sometimes time on the outside looking in can change your perspective. Maybe he's studying device old vods and new vods :D what AWPer has made progress like device ? he's arguably the #1 AWPer on recent form, really scary in any situation
Swag and c9 are banking on the off-chance Valve shows mercy and grants him eligibility to compete again. Those chances get smaller every year to the point where only the delusional would think that the ban be lifted.
I see a lot of ppl writing " online game that no one gives a shit about" .
yeah, tell that to the people who lost money on skins.

Team nowadays throw on more than 1 online matches not getting ban
Lets say VP Kappa
