IBP should not be banned in the first place
United Kingdom cake1 
When IBP threw that game vs Netcode Guides years ago, skins had no value, they didn’t steal money, it’s like throwing a football match for Pokemon cards. There was no rule against throwing games. IBP or Epsilon did not break the rules so they shouldn’t have been banned in the first place. What IBP did was scummy but they were technically allowed to do it. You can’t argue against my flawless logic. There is no counter argument to me.

they robbed pixels?

It's done all the time, called pirating. Even though I don't agree with it. Someone steals a woman's purse, its gone, everything in it is gone. Pirate a game or movie, its still there.

are u new or something. skins had value back then. everyone was gambling and trading on lounge
2017-09-07 03:27
He means from a legal standpoint in that counter strike global offensive skins aren't a globally accepted currency with no government backing. Valve themselves admitted during the whole gambling fiasco that skins don't have any real value for the sake of their argument that opening valve cases isn't actually gambling since they hold no real value and you are guaranteed an item from a case. Not saying what they did was by any means ethical or okay but it was a very gray area. You throw a match and you get cash is one thing. You throw a match and you get items which hypothetically could have value is different. It's like when people get bitcoin scammed, there is nothing the person can do since it is not regulated.

Should have been banned for a year and bring the precedent they made in DOTA.

2017-09-07 04:58

They maxed out their bets on multiple accounts, that was thpusands of dollars. And Gambling skins are WAY different then average skins. Higher value for rarity and such. Even back then the skins used for gambling didn't even come close to a low price. What they did was immoral. Do I think they deserved a LIFETIME ban? No, not really. But in the end they got what was coming to them. And I'm alright with that
2017-09-07 06:30
yeah but i think they way valve did it was not okay do some research and punish every team that did it in the same way ( a lot of the pro teams did match fixing, some more some less at that time ) Permabanning 1 team as a "flagship" and letting the others go unpunished was pretty stupid and it shows how careless they actually are about whats going on.

There was never any evidence or proof that other teams were match fixing. It was speculation alone. Plus people just thought VP was match fixing because online they were terrible, especially compared to their LAN stats. They never let anyone go "unpunished" for no reason, it's because they had no reason to ban them

We just got to deal with the fact that DOTA 2 is Valve's golden child while CSGO is the black sheep. No matter what, everything favors DOTA 2 progress, major, and ban wise.

u r f u c k i n g s t u p i d d u d e if u get cheated and scammed i hope no one cares too
2017-09-07 07:25
it really sucks for the players of IBP especially considering that basically every pro team at that time was match fixing and csgolounge was even hosting irrelevant cups and showmatches just for this reason. VP was probably the most notorious of all match fixers, if you ask me. I think IBP should have been given a 2nd chance, but cheaters should get permanently banned.

I lost my most precious P250 Sand Dune on that game, perma-ban please.

They should just be happy they aren't living in south korea which actually has laws and regulations for eSports, in Korea it's not even the fact you gain monetary value for match fixing, the money is irrelevant there, if you get caught match fixing you go to jail whether you're gaining money from it or not.

They should be in jail
2017-09-07 12:52
To all the idiots who say they should be in the jail, chew on this: there were no rules pertaining to match fixing when they did it. The only thing they compromised were their moral values, and legally, they didn't do anything wrong. It is Valve's own fault for it happening in the first place.
