Epsilon suspend CS:GO team
Epsilon have announced that they have suspended their CS:GO division pending the outcome of an investigation into match-fixing claims.
Robin "GMX" Stahmer revealed on Saturday, just 48 hours after being dismissed by Epsilon, that his former team had lost an ESEA match against OverGaming on purpose to profit from weapon skins sold by friends on CSGOLounge.

Epsilon have now revealed that they are in shock with the news of their team being involved in a match-fixing probe and have suspended the players until the results of the investigation are announced.
"It became apparent yesterday that a statement from our ex player, GMX, had surfaced accusing his ex team-mates of throwing a game some months ago," a statement from Epsilon reads.
"We at Epsilon had absolutely no prior information about this situation and were as shocked to read this as everyone else.
"Since this information came to be known, we have been working behind the scenes to gain as much data ourselves and also liaising with other bodies within the CS:GO scene such as Valve.
"Firstly, we at Epsilon would like to make it clear that we absolutely do not condone cheating and exploiting systems in any way.
"We have now decided to suspend the whole CS:GO team pending the results of ongoing investigations by both Valve and ESEA.
"We will of course provide any more information, both when we have it, and when it is relevant to do so."
Epsilon currently have:
