You retarded? They were literally dirt poor. Throw for money WAS their only option to survive effectively as they won't make enough off streaming alone and NA events at the time had at most $20k prize pools, nowhere near enough for 5 players to survive for months hence why it was a big deal at the time.
Now, unless their team is orgless, there is no excuse to throw games for skins especially with the trade hold bullshit that has happened. If I were them I would have done the same thing to keep myself afloat. Keep in mind in 2014, the esports audience and CSGO audience in general was developing and hadn't even fully flourished yet.
They should be unbanned as given their situation, 5 or more years is extensive with teams now and in the future being perma banned if they were to throw games themselves. The thrown game is not even remotely a big deal today anymore given that it has been 5 years since the incident and players who did get scammed would have likely got their $60-400 back anyway.
