I was being sarcastic. Look at the difference in prize pool, that explain why they will allow this one without batting an eyelash.

naah it really doesnt. It might have a high prizepool, but how do you think its getting financed...

Yes, but since it's a higher profile one hltv isn't going to shoot themselves in the foot without evidences. Hltv is a business as well.

but you know , even if they get banned they don't care because the mafia literally controlled the whole asia cs scene and people would still gamble on it the only way to combat matchfix is to boycott small online chinese / east-asia tournaments

I agree. They only get banned if its proved, and id say that 95-99 percent cant be proved. It's not like they aren't smart about it, and nobody has the resources required to investigate every single match that involves a comeback, or upset. Boycott is the only way to go.
