Bookies Parimatch and 1xBet reported that there were odd bets on a game between Cyber Legacy and Vikin.gg at ESL One Germany on October 18. match and then dive again to sites taking bets on the second card despite Vikin.gg being the big favorites. Parimatch has removed the game from its betting line and several other betting sites have done the same. 1xBet raised similar concerns and said action was taken on other CL matches six months ago. He claimed that many of the bets made came from recently registered accounts. No further evidence has been raised to show that CL actually started the series against Vikin.gg, despite losing 2-0. In response to these claims, Cyber Legacy CEO Vladislav Grechkin said his team was innocent. “Cyber Legacy always adheres to sports ethics and has great respect for the public,” said Grechkin. “Participation in ‘fake’ matches is unacceptable to us. Vikin.gg was initially the reunion favorite. Based on the fact that our Dota 2 roster is in a “restart” state, and on the results of the last few games, one could predict that we would lose. Grechkin also said nothing from the team has been suspicious, citing the growth in team following as a potential reason for odd bets or ulterior motives from bookies who have spoken out against the team. . Another suspected match-fixing case emerged just a day later, as Team Yellow Submarine, another CIS competitor, reported that some of their players had received offers to throw in their series against Na ‘ Vi. Dmitry “Korb3n” Belov, the first player approached was the off-plan Magomed “Collapse” Halilov. He was offered 1 million Russian rubles, or nearly 13,000 US dollars. The money was offered to be split between him and two of his teammates who would also be brought in as part of the deal if they didn’t tell Korb3n and agreed to throw. Sharing the image, Korb3n even added that he was skeptical of the arguments between CL and the bookies as there was no evidence, but seeing his players being approached, he changed his mind. A larger investigation will likely be launched after the conclusion of ESL One Germany on November 1, with a particular focus on teams from both SIC and CL.
