Match-fixing is prohibited, and Valve currently makes it perfectly clear with yet another celebration captured will be prohibited. Omega Esports is sadly another case of match-fixing in Dota 2 Esports, Note that it wasn’t simply one naughty gamer in the group that was match-fixing, however the whole lineup was included. The young boys did have a propensity to win or lose as a group, and they will get prohibited as a group.
However, the current choice has broader effects on the league and groups associated with the DPC circuit. What are the best actions moving on?
BTS drops life time restriction on Omega Esports
On November 23, the Southeast Asia DPC League revealed the main restriction of Team Smart Omega, aka Omega Esports. The restriction reaches numerous active and previous Omega Esports gamers and coaches.
BeyondTheSummit broke out the news, however is yet to share additional information on how the whole procedure decreased, and which matches remained in concern. The result of the scandal is outright as Omega Esports loses their Division 1 slot in the Dota Pro Circuit 2021-22(DPC2021-22).

On the other hand, Omega Esports launched a declaration that they have actually not gotten a main copy from BTS concerning their restriction. They as soon as again declare that they do not excuse any type of unfaithful or game-fixing.
While it will spend some time up until additional updates on the case, the effects of the restriction impacted lots of uninvolved celebrations too.
Implications of the Omega Esports scandal
Worse yet, fans feel ravaged for the current additions of Omega Esports, Lee “ Forev” Sang-don, Ramzi “ Ramz” Bayhaki, and Liew “ Eren” Jun Jie. The trio, now totally free representatives, will most likely not make it for the DPC 2021-22 SEA Tour 1. Forev is actively aiming to fill any coach function as a desperate effort to return into the Dota 2 professional scene.

However, Ramz and Eren, who are appealing gamers, simply lost their grip on the popular side of DPC 2021-22 Their wish to get approved for the Major simply ended up being more far-off as they will have a hard time discovering a good group after the post-TI10 lineup shuffle duration.
BOOM Esports in Division 1
It’s not all problem if you ask BOOM Esports. They now keep their Division 1 slot after losing the “fifth-seventh” location tiebreaker in the last DPC 2021 season to OB Esports x Neon and Omega Esports. Fans are confident for BOOM Esports to provide after the Indonesian powerhouse revamped their lineup with skilled Filipino gamers. They just recently won the BTS Pro Series Season 8 and 9 for SEA area, making them a powerful challenger.
Meanwhile, Execration, which just recently hired Van Jerico ” Van” Manalaysay, needed to discover a replacement instantly. They just got a week prior to the Division 1 matches start. Regardless, an unforeseen lineup modification like this might interrupt the group’s synergy, particularly considering that Van was an offlane core gamer.
While we are on the subject of match-fixing, this is the 2nd huge team-wide restriction this year. Previous TI champs Newbee recieved a comparable restriction in early2021 We either have a wide-spread match-fixing issue progressively in strength just in the Asia leagues, or groups are getting captured quickly due to an abundance of security systems. I hope its the latter.
Let this be a lesson to the Esports neighborhood that match-fixing is no longer a practical approach to make a fast dollar. Sure, $322 in cold, difficult money is appealing, however the effects are valuable.
