ESEA investigates GMX claims

ESEA has announced that it is looking into Robin "GMX" Stahmer's claims that Epsilon lost a match against OverGaming on purpose.

Robin "⁠GMX⁠" Stahmer revealed earlier today, just 48 hours after being released from Epsilon, that his former team lost an ESEA match against OverGaming on purpose to profit from bets placed by friends on the Spanish side.

French veteran Steeve "⁠Ozstrik3r⁠" Flavigni, a well-known figure in the French scene, has since confirmed that he knew Epsilon were going to lose the match and that he placed a bet on the Spanish team, albeit one with a very low value.

ESEA has now revealed that it will not stay indifferent to these claims and that it has reached out to Valve to discuss this matter.

"Recently, reports have surfaced regarding a former European ESEA Invite team, Epsilon eSports, allegedly fixing a match," ESEA co-founder Eric "lpkane" Thunberg said.

we've reached out to Valve and provided all information we presently have available, and will continue to investigate this matter internally
as mentioned in this post: https://play.esea.net/index.php?s=news&a...
match fixing has no place in professional gaming, and we plan to continue to do all in our power to combat it

"We've reached out to Valve and provided all information we presently have available, and will continue to investigate this matter internally.

As mentioned in this post, match fixing has no place in professional gaming, and we plan to continue to do all in our power to combat it."

GMX's claims come just a week after the stunning match-fixing scandal in North America, which resulted in bans handed by Valve and several tournament organisers to seven people, including five professional players.

GMX maybe did the right think but I think people are more angry about his timing... He could have told that BEFORE he was kicked and then it would have been about sportsmanship or fairplay but now it is just because he is angry at his teammates because he was kicked due to his low skill level.

He would have been banned himself in the process and thus ending his career in CS. Now that it is over anyway, he might aswell come clean.

yeye I'm not denying that. I just don't like the people who praise him because he tells the truth about some matchfixing. I mean he is a bad person and the only reason he told about it was because he could not benefit from it anymore. I don't like the rest of Epsilon players too because of the throw of course but right now we are talking about GMX :)

Yes but he had nothing to lose by doing so now,in fact he gets revenge. But when he had something to lose (when he was in the team, which is his spot in th team) he decide to keep his mouth shut. Do you realise what a fucktard GMX is now? Its true the others deserved to be banned, but it is almost as though GMX is manipulating valve to do so as an act of revenge. GMX is wrong, Epsilon is wrong, 2 wrongs doesn't make one right but i say GMX deserves a punishment for the way he is acting.
2015-02-01 15:56
People are wondering why GMX didn't admit before he got kicked. Are people seriously this stupid, why the hell would he admit if he was still in the team? Use brain please. Yes it was a "bitch" move, but too bad, they are all at fault for match-fixing. Epsilon needs to release them before they all get banned to save some Reputation.
2015-02-01 04:01
1 reply
If he had real morals and not a vengeful motive he should have admitted when he was in the team. But he didn't had morals and all he had done is reveal the matchfixing as a form of revenge rather than "doing the right thing" I hope Epsilon doesn't get ban just to make GMX GMAD, banning everyone even GMX only allows GMX to get what he wants.

2015-02-01 07:42
Hopefully Valve will come to realize their unreasonable judgement on the 6 NA players. Alter their current statement with a fair judgement, like 2-4 years, when judging this case.
2015-02-01 07:59
good luck banning them when they weren't stupid enough to bet with their own accs or accs linked to them. Even gmx admitted that there isn't any actual proof or paper trail. No doubt epsilon has been throwing for a long time with the forfeits and shit, but valve won't do anything because there isn't any evidence. What are they gonna do? ban everyone on scream's friendslist? epsilon will get away with it, the same way skadoodle didnt get punished because he got paid via paypal.

Fxy0 gets let go, says nothing for the longest time ( and he's the toxic one ), GMX let go, 48 hrs later he starts a petty witch-hunt with no definitive evidence. Something just doesn't seem right.
