Growing Pains: A History of esports' worst, most infamous and game changing scandals

7243 ratings | 482314 views
From media laughing stock to media craze, from thousands of viewers to millions—esports has eclipsed all expectations in the last decade. But while competitive gaming has come a long way since its humble beginnings, it hasn’t been without its own controversies. And that’s no real surprise, just look at sports. From the NFL’s Deflategate and head trauma controversies to the MLB’s doping scandals and match fixing that dates back to 1919, one thing is pretty clear when it comes to professional sports—sometimes the spirit of competition gets lost in the money and fame. And esports is no exception. Now, in 2017, with the announcement of NA LCS franchising and the continued anticipation of the soon-to-come Overwatch League, esports takes yet another step towards maturity. As the industry continues to move forward, the interest and investments from the sports world is bound to lead to more professionalism, stability, and yes, scandals.

About that gender divided tournament. Its stupid, for sure. I think esports tournaments should be "gender neutral", as in both men and women (and attack helicopters) should be allowed in the same teams and tournaments. What I don't get is, there are female only CSGO tournaments etc, but no one is losing their shit because of that?

Alright calm down, iBUYPOWER wasn't nearly as good as this video is making them out to be, they weren't even top 10 in the world, arguably not even the best in NA.

“So we found this new site” meme perfectly underused.

Seriously though TMartn and Syndicate couldn't have done a worse job at not getting caught. They literally left all that information in plain sight in public. No clever tricks or attempts to obfuscate the information they were literally publicly listed as the owners and operators.

The craziest part about the no female thing is that now the female leagues don't allow males. But the male leagues still allow females, they're just hardly ever good enough to play with the males.

interstellartravel (2 months ago)
The all random match is the biggest bullshit in the history esports. That should have been allowed because they all earned the right to be there. They didn't intentionally throw, they made a much more exciting match.

Glad you included the original big scandal (sAviOr and others matchfixing in SC1). I remember how sad it was watching that unfold in real time, waiting for translations of loads of Korean things, waiting to see who else you liked would be implicated..

Life was a really good player, I kinda wanna know how he is doing today in StarCraft II. It was disappointing to hear about such scandal.

i don't see the problem with the all random mid fight as long as both teams still try to win what would it matter... yea not how the game is ment to be played but how is it cheating?

Leaving out the League eloboost scandal and adderall doping scandals? Those were some of the most talked about things in the forums for a solid 6 months or longer.

Y did skadoodle get banned? Anyone know
sampletext (3 months ago)
He isnt banned and currenly signed by cloud9. Ibuypower basicly had someome who would bet with multiple accs on ibps loss. So ibp threw the match and everyone got paid with skins - except for skadoodle. The dude did not have enough skins to pay all of them and skadoodle was left unpaid, so valve decided to let him go

Whats so wrong about the all random match? There was no money riding along or incorporated in the agreement so there should be no issue

These players are not too bright. The very same communities that follow them will expose them and these players will get caught.

No hate im sure you have your reasons but why is there no Call of Duty E-Sports. As please dont take this as COD Fanboyism but COD was at the X-Games thats significant to mention even if its brief.

Well, in all realism whens the last time you watched female esports and it was cool \_•_•_/ i mean they arent even at a pro level compared to male teams. Watch the video on C9 vs some no name female team.
Sakkehattu (19 days ago)
The point is, you shouldn't exclude them. If there's a good female HS player, why not let him play in the same tournament? Its about giving an equal chance.
