Epsilon players handed one year bans

Epsilon player Joey "fxy0" Schlosser has indicated that his squad have received a one year ban from all Valve-sponsored tournaments.

Although information is still forthcoming about the veracity of Joey "fxy0" Schlosser's post on social media, it would appear that the members of Epsilon involved in allegations of match-fixing have indeed been found guilty by Valve.

As a result, fxy0 indicated that the Epsilon team have received a one year ban from all events in which Valve is involved.


Joey "fxy0" Schlosser says Epsilon have been given a one year ban

fxy0's full statement on the situation is:

"Hello everyone, today i received an email from Valve in which it is explained that we are banned 1 year from every Valve tournament.

Hard punishment ofc, but I can understand, I have acted like a kid and now I have to pay. Now, we will see if every league, tournament will follow the Valve decision.

I hope not, 1 year ban from every major is extremely hard enough. Stay tuned!"

Whether this development includes Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, whom Robin "GMX" Stahmer indicated was not aware of the match-fixing, has yet to be determined.

I'd rather have 1 year. No point in killing talent when a 1 year ban in a game that is growing this quickly would be just as harsh.

2015-02-04 05:37
I guess that's what's coming.
2015-02-04 05:45
I can see Swag's ban being revised, but not the others. IBP scammed around $10k whereas Epsilol was in the hundreds (as far as i know).
2015-02-04 06:16
And how would you know? There is no official proof of 10k or 1k its only redditors talk.
2015-02-04 06:45
2015-02-04 08:14
Oh ok, but how is that steel or anyones fault? Swag already said that dazed came with the idea and implied that he forced it on them by whining. He might have got all the money.
2015-02-04 08:17
Except he didn't get all the money the other players admitted to being paid in skins, swag being one of them.
2015-02-04 09:28
Swag & Steel both said they received one skin only. So the rest has to be between the remaining members + pum/cum/dum whatever & dboorN.
2015-02-04 15:40
Forced it on them by whining. What a bunch of fucking pussies, grow a spine. How anyone can allow themselves to be commanded by that massive autist DaZeD is beyond me.
2015-02-04 13:37
I think Pepsilon have 1 year ban cause they didn't bet on themselves. Their friends did.
2015-02-04 07:10
I'm pretty sure ex-iBPs not bet on themselves either? Am I misinformed?
2015-02-04 07:32
ex-iBP used smurf account to bet. :)
2015-02-04 08:59
I thought dboorN bet for them?
2015-02-04 13:55
It does not make a different if Epsilon just did this to gain some skins rather than get alot of money aout of it. From what i have read IPB players gained 100$ each aswell.
2015-02-04 07:56
absolutely!

2015-02-04 07:57
Dear dumb muricans, Epsilon didn't bet on the match themselves, their friends got some free skins. Also, they came out with it themselves, before anything was fully proven. Richard Lewis asked ibp several times to come out clean and they refused every time. Even in RL you don't get the same sentence for the same crime. Some people get life-time in prison, others get 25 yrs or so, depending on the siutation

2015-02-04 05:59
Richard Lewis did pretty much this to Steel and few others. He told them he has all the evidence and even suggested they'd get a lesser punishment. They didn't want to say anything and were dumb enough to believe they'd get away with it. Epsilon has a bit more brains than muricans, they're not getting punished as hard now. They could've just said that GMX is mad over being kicked if they really wanted to go down that road, instead they handled the situation as they should and admitted all of it

There wouldn't have been bans if they hadn't received skins, there would be no way to prove it. But considering fxy0 come out with an apology makes it obvious that they received enough skins to be caught by valve. It also doesn't matter how long people have been asking ibp to come out, both teams apologized after they were caught, neither came out before.
2015-02-04 06:05
Yeah they admitted everything after GMX posted it on facebook because he got kicked. If you are that retarded to believe that they didn't benefit and threw for there friends then you are as stupid as muricans.
2015-02-04 06:47
beware of going full retard.
2015-02-04 07:21

2015-02-04 09:07
Epsilon came out because gmx was a rat... Had gnx not been a rat, you would have never known... Look at how long ago that match was.
2015-02-04 12:50
NA gets lifetime ban when they make over 10,000$ profit and Epsilon gets only 1 year because they didn't place any bets on the game.

If they dont make iBP ban one year this is total bullshit. They did the exact same thing, they should have the exact same punishment. The $ amount, by law, does not matter.
2015-02-04 06:00
the fact these guys probs made 1k off this and ibp made 10k+ and never once admitted yet lied even once found guilty would be enough to reason a perm ban to a 1 year ban ibp handled it wrong and were made an example out of because of it
2015-02-04 06:02
Epsilon did the same thing. They didn't say anything about it until they were caught just like iBP. This is LAW. Same crime = same punishment. The amount does not matter. Example - 2 guys break into houses, one steals tv other steals a lava lamp. They both get charged the exact same thing (If 18+)
2015-02-04 06:04
It's not law. Valve can ban anyone they want from their competitive tournaments if they say it's bad for business.
2015-02-04 06:05
Same Crime = Same Punishment. False Murder Court Cases never dish out the same punishment. Some go to prison for longer periods then others with similar circumstances. Unfortunately for IBP there case was more severe then Epsilon. fxy0 also probably helped reduce the ban by making an apologetic video before the punishment was announced, instead of denying it countless times. I too feel IBP should get a reduced punishment, but if i had to decide which team had to have the permanent ban, it would be for IBP The world is unfair, and this is how shit goes.
2015-02-04 06:27
And swag was <18 I guess. So no punishment. :P
2015-02-04 07:10
That doesn't mean no punishment lol just different and normally less severe
2015-02-04 07:21
Lol was just kidding. But don't think they do get punished. Generally they are sent to correctional facilities where they asked too do community Service. So may be 50 overwatch a day for swag. :P On a seriour note, IMO kids below 18 should not be allowed to bet either.
2015-02-04 07:42
50 overwatch a day LOL I love it
2015-02-04 07:53
lying about it for months vs. immediately admitting it once exposed legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/p..
2015-02-04 06:45
lol yea once they knew the bans would be lifetime. if ibp didnt get caught and this epsilon thing happened first you can bet that they wouldve denied it just like ibp did get off that bs
2015-02-04 07:42
No they didn't do the same thing, that's what you NA kids refuse to understand -____-"
2015-02-04 09:08
Actually money amount by law DOES matter... There's a huge difference in larceny and grand larceny. That's like saying I get 2 years in prison for stealing 3 dollars, the same as a guy who stole 3 thousand dollars.

ex-iBP stole much more money then Epsilon did. That being said i believe a 1 year ban is pretty solid sad but necessary. I do however feel that the ex-iBP bans were perhaps a bit to high to start off with.
2015-02-04 06:20
No one likes americans who throws for thousands of usd in skins.
2015-02-04 06:29
i don't like any team that throws for skins.... for all i care its a freaking dutch team bans are in order for any team that throws for skins. 1: they dissapoint and lie to their fans. 2: they steal from the community members who supported them. 3: this makes our e-sport look dumb and seriously bad. 4: extremely negative publicity for the organization they play for aswell.
2015-02-04 06:34
Maybe they support them but betting is not a way to support a team xD And the one who bet are not always the one who support ! There is a HUGE difference
2015-02-04 11:00
I understand there is a difference let me clarify. With support them i mean our e-sport as a whole as it has grown in rapid fashion.
2015-02-04 16:07
u don´t know how much other users bet
2015-02-04 06:44
seeying as the iBP throw was much more orchestrated then this one i think we can say for shure iBP made much more on this then just a few skins....also the odds were much higher on the iBP game then the Epsilon one.

no problem that's kinda cool to handle it this way from valve:)
2015-02-04 07:34
why is it just one year?
2015-02-04 07:41
Why the fuck do you bother setting a precedent if you're not going to follow it? These guys should either be perm banned or no one should be banned at all. Either reverse the original decision and warn of the potential for very severe punishments, or perm ban these guys.
2015-02-04 07:49
Are you really that stupid? Is everyone here so fucking dumb its mindblowing? Where the fuck did you read that ibp players got permanent bans? Learn to fucking read.
2015-02-04 08:36
Those bans have no stated end date. They're permanent bans, unless Valve decide to remove the bans in time.
2015-02-04 08:41
No. They are permanent when valve states they are permanent bans.
2015-02-04 08:44

2015-02-04 07:52
Guys you dont consider anything. Your question is ex-iBP got indefinate ban And pepsilon only 1 yr. The reason is because GMX ,the ex pepsilon player came out in open(bad intentions though) and told about throwing. Fxy0 came out and accepted his crime. Look at shameless iBP guys,they kept on defending even after they got caught. Now ask yourself. This is a fair 1 yr ban for pepsilon and justified in definate ban for EX-iBP

2015-02-04 08:01
When GMX first brought it up they openly denied it and said he was lying. They only came out after they knew they were fucked to reduce their ban. That doesn't mean shit.

2015-02-04 09:04
Use your brain for once. Several planned match fixings with incomes in the 10'000$ range versus a spontanious "throw" in the last match of an already decided ESEA season for skins worth around 200$. Of course those cases are totally equal and should deserve the same punishment! /s

Swag didn't plan shit and got very few skins from it, 1 game that didn't matter, just like french. But volvo forced same punishment on all ibp players regardless of their involvement degree. And i won't believe everything just because pepsilion says it before there are any confirmations, offcourse fxy0 will try to make himself look as best as he can it that confession video. All i know so far they threw the game and got some skins, plus their friends got more, nobody of whom got exposed yet.

2015-02-04 10:40
iBP's matchfixing involved several or more matches totalling tens of thousands of dollars and they denied the accusations passionately. Epsilon fixed one match receiving <$1000 and admitted it after being accused by a teammate. Just thought I'd break it down for anyone who is confused as the different length of times of the bans.
2015-02-04 10:41
Where is your proof on several or more matches thrown? Epsilon made less money but the people betting on them lost everything which is clearly more than 1000$. So your points not justifying the different lengths.
2015-02-04 11:33
Do your research. Epsilon made less than $1000. What about the people betting on iBP? If you're focusing on all the money people lost on the epsilon game, imagine how much people lost on the IBP games.
2015-02-04 12:15
Care to provide some proof of IBP fixing several matches?
2015-02-04 13:21
1 year perfect! But iBP ban must be shortened to 1 year too + cheater: 2 years.

ScreaM is dead since 1.5 years anyway, whatever happens to him doesn't even matter. I'm sure he matchfixed in that match or other matches anyway as he has shown he cares too much about skins (dAT v Epsilon game as example, the forfeit-case)

What do you mean "mad iBP-fanboys"? Anyone who is wanting iBP banned is just someone who is intelligent enough to understand that it's simply not fair for Valve to ban them "indefinitely" while other teams do it and get banned for one year. You are obviously very mature, how many skins did you lose on the game nerd?

2015-02-04 14:27
If people don't understand the clear difference between the two cases, they're retarded. That said, I think it's obvious Valve is gonna announce the same punishment for IBP, that's why they said "indefinite".
