"Through a joint investigation with ESEA, the esports watchdog association found seven individuals who were involved in placing bets on MDL matches, including in their own games."
"including in their own games."
If you bet on your own game that is matchfixing hellooo
You dont bet on your own match if you dont know what the result will be
But, as there is a lot of misconception with the recent statement we are here to clear some things up. These players did indeed bet during the MDL Season, not only on other matches, but on themselves to win. They tried their hardest and put 100% into every game they played bet or no bet, not a single match was ever fixed, there was no conspiring, there's no proof of any throwing and this wasn't really explained in the ESIC statement which led to hate towards our players.
"not a single match was ever fixed, there was no conspiring, there's no proof of any throwing"
They bet on their own match thats matchfixing doesnt matter if theres no proof of throwing they did the crime its on them to prove that there was no throwing which is virtually impossible so tough luck
They deserve all the hate, they are morons and deserve punishment
One year, they got off easy
Ultimately, all 5 players deeply regret the decision they have made, realise it was a mistake and the small amount they won was NOT worth the year ban they have received. We expect other players learn from the mistake and ensure they don't bet on games in there league as it is not worth it. We hope to get into contact with ESIC about the situation
It's not matchfixing, ESIC specifically refer to them as betting offenses at this stage, as they only have proof of the bets, not any sort of rigging/fixing. The actual matchfixing investigation is still ongoing, and involves NA MDL also.
Betting on their own games should really avoided, but if they only betted on their own ML that's not match-fixiing. ML aligns with their motive to win so not really a problem. Issues are if they dip into props.
lmao! nice try but those insults still doesn't affect me in the slightest bit and I didnt exploited anything because I made a moneyline bet on avant vs rooster not knowing its a 5v4 and yes I intended to annoy other people with my comment, that is the purpose of it & just like what charlie sheen said- winning...
