ESIC issues 35 bans for betting-related offences in Australia

The esports watchdog group has released the latest findings of its large investigation into betting activity in Counter-Strike.

The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has announced that it has banned 35 players for periods ranging from 12 months to five years for breaches of its Anti-Corruption Code in member events in Australia. These bans are in addition to the sanctions handed down to seven players in October for placing bets on ESEA MDL Australia matches.

The offences, which include betting on an individual's own team and against it, have been reported to local authorities as they represent a potential breach of the criminal law in Australia, ESIC explained. The association noted that it has not yet made a ruling on whether there have been acts of match-fixing as the investigation — which is being carried out in conjunction with law enforcement — is still ongoing.

Akram "⁠ADK⁠" Smida and Daryl "⁠Mayker⁠" May, two of the players suspended on October 23, have had their bans increased to 24 and 48 months, respectively, "following newly-available evidence".

ESIC added that "the presence of collusive behaviour by close associates" of the offending parties was detected during the course of the investigation. These non-player associates, who in several instances "placed identical bets to those placed by the offending parties", have also been referred to the authorities.

While analysing the data at its disposal, ESIC created a sanctions matrix with five levels to ensure that the bans were "were consistent and proportional to the offences". You can find that matrix below:

Betting on matches - 12 months
Betting on own games - 24 months
Aggravated betting (over 10 matches) - 36 months
Betting against team - 48 months
Aggravated betting against own team - 60 months

Below is the complete list of people who have been banned by ESIC for betting offences in Australia since October:

*Bans started on October 23, 2020

These bans will have effect across ESIC's members, which include ESL, DreamHack and BLAST. The esports watchdog association called on non-member tournament organisers to honour these sanctions.

ESIC underlined the need for "a unified understanding of the implications of inappropriate betting behaviour and observance of anti-corruption mechanisms" to prevent esports from "facilitating attractive fraud opportunities for bad actors". It also reminded that "professional players (at the very least)" should refrain from placing bets on the game from which they earn an income "in order to preserve the integrity of the esports landscape internationally and mitigate the potential for bad actors to take advantage of our sport."

The watchdog association added that it is still conducting other investigations into potential betting offences in "a number of other CS:GO leagues, including leagues located in North America and Europe, and a significant number of other leagues in multiple game titles." Further updates on these probes and the cooperation with law enforcement authorities will be issued "as and when it is appropriate to do so", ESIC said.

Correction: An earlier version of this article referred to Noobster as being a member of AVANT. The Australian organisation has since clarified to HLTV.org that the player only filled in for the team and was never signed.

Absolutely. That's also why the NA scene is dying now, instead of orgs buying out nonexistent tier2 teams pushing for the top. Without the sub-top, there's no transition of talent and barely any sponsors in the domestic scene.

Having this kind of "talent" banned is better for the scene in the long run. Integrity over perceived health. Purge em! NA scene is dying because of other underlying issues. OCE scene has vivid lower-tier teams and they'll manage.

Well at least now people can now realize that match-fixing/betting while being a pro actually is a problem. Really wish ESIC can finally punish the NA MDL scene and the ASIA scene, for me it's where the sketchy shit happens all the time, also the Bulgarian teams should also be looked at.

The AU CS was a plague, except the top 5 you could be sure every second match is fixed 1s people played stupid things, couldn't aim anymore etc. Glad they cleaned it a bit! Now they should keep going to Asia, CIS, NA and finally EU

ye it's like that in most sports for good reason tbh. if you a pro --> no bets on your sport!

Didn't read the whole thing, but according to: "ESIC noted, however, that it has not yet made a ruling on whether there have been acts of match-fixing as the investigation — which is being carried out in conjunction with law enforcement — is still ongoing." If there wasn't any match fixing(at least it seems like it's not entirely), what's the issue with betting on your own team?

Bet on yourself to win, pay the other team to throw, profit. That aside, it should just be proper that pros dont bet on matches, even other matches as a lot of players are friends and can get insider info.

2021-01-22 13:12
Pro player shouldn't bet on matches AT ALL, they have insider info on their own team and other teams/players. Say for example you know that two of your teammates are going through a slump this week or maybe a certain player has a minor wrist injury but you know this due to your status as a pro. You know your chances of losing is high so you bet against your team. Morally wrong and also every tournament org has anti betting rules.

Seems crazy to me that betting for your team will net you 24 months and against is 48 months. Betting against your team is clearly wrong since you can throw the match and make that outcome happen. Betting on your team to win though... Well isn't that basically what every tournament with prize money is? A bet that you'll win and get some prize money? Hard to see why that is even immoral much less deserving of two year ban.

The ennemy team can contact you to say they will throw. Then you split the profit, it was used in real sport as well. Some pros thought they would evade most consequences that way, nope.

Now everyone who didnt even read the acticle will think that all these players are dirty matchfixers but it is not true. Because some of them made bets (not against themselves) on other CS:GO games like a lot of players in all regions do ESIC decided to kill all competitions in the region. With this amount of banned players scene will be dead soon, gj

No, they aren't, what a stupid take, breaking rules means they get banned but it doesn't mean they are matchfixers if they didn't bet against their team

Why the fuck ESIC is banning for just betting? Yes, players have inside info. And so? It doesn't violate a shit. They hadn't any info that ANY betting is forbidden. ESIC is a dumb fucks. More ban for ADK for betting on own team in a match, yeah yeah yeah

Are you retarded or what ? Do you think it is normal in any sport to have inside info and let the guys to bet on?? Even they play these matches and can influence it. They just think they are untouchable behind the PC. If they catch you in soccer, you can go to the prison. This guys received only ban for 12 months. Do you realize how many people are affected because they bet on their matches with given results? So many matches in that ESEA shit events ended with weird result and nobody gives a shit until ESIC. Thanks for their work.

Sure I'm mad when I lose money due to guys fixing. So you have to skip china matches, low tier eu, na matches etc. Imo it is better to clean the scene from fixers than let it go like nothing happening there :) If you still dont see problem, then it is waste of time with you I guess.

They should do it asap. It happens everyday some weird stuff. Imo it is worse with that corona situation because they play from their home and it is easy for them to matchfix. These magic pauses or unreal comebacks are there so much often last days to be just coincidence. It really wont be lose if some shit teams get banned because of matchfixing between themself (to be honest, I'm not surprised they are fixing with these tourney structures where you play qualification and whole tourney for more than month and prize is only for first two place).

so i understand all of these bans except the 12 months one. when exactly is someone considered a pro? if they give bans like this there should be a strict definition of a "pro". if i have a match on hltv and won 200 dollar from some shit cup and the next day i bet on astralis vs navi i am considered a pro that could have inside information? do i need to be signed to a team? imo thats a bit weird.
2021-01-22 15:31
