myRevenge in betting scandal
myRevenge's German CS:GO division lost their match against VOLGARE on purpose, according to CSGOLounge.
Last night, a showmatch between myRevenge's German team and Hungarian side VOLGARE took place, with bets being made available on CSGOLounge.
Despite myRevenge being highly favoured for this encounter, with odds favouring them 79%-21%, VOLGARE came out on top rather easily as they beat their opponents 2-0.
Soon after the match, suspicions were raised that myRevenge had lost the match on purpose, and evidence collected by CSGOLounge appears to point in the same direction.
"We have done some investigating and have found very hard evidence of MyRev throwing," a statement from CSGOLounge on Reddit reads. "Not only (apparent) ingame throws by tomfoolery, we have found significant evidence that they threw.
"For two out of five members, 90% of their friends placed against them. Those friends had alternative accounts which they also used to bet against them.
"Another piece of evidence was some of these alternative accounts and maxbets as their only bet, which was against their friend and the majority favorite.
"Finally, one of myReve's team members placed a maxbet against themselves, we have found it just to return skins to all users.
"Sorry to all legitimate Volgare betters, but this was a necessity. Sorry for the inconvenience!"
Moreover, CSGOLounge has indicated that bets will no longer be available for matches played by myRevenge.
Meanwhile, myRevenge have issued a statement on this matter, which you can find below:
"We are very sorry about the mess that happened today. Even our management has no clear information about what happened.We just want to apologize for the disappointing match you saw today.
"We will sit down with the team in the next few days and find out what exactly happened and make a statement with them.
"Of course we will keep you up to date."
