New match-fixing scandal in China

On Monday, after a two-week vacation, the LPL returned to the game, but instead of newcomer Bo, Tian was replaced by the team due to his health problems. As it turned out earlier, Zhou “Bo” Yang-bo reported to the LoL Pro League disciplinary commission that he participated in match-fixing when he played in the LoL Development League.

FPX has removed the player from participating in LPL, and together with him we will fully cooperate with the investigation.

Our redaction are not sure whether the confession will free them from liability, however, these testimonies endanger the eStar organization, which also has a membership in the LPL. FPX jungler has performed with the Star Young academic team at the LDL. Then the team took 5th place, which allowed them to participate in the playoffs.

The players themselves talked about being pressured by "bad actors" and the possibility that Bo was subjected to similar pressure.

Match-fixing are widespread in China, and with the advent of esports, they've gotten a whole new spin. For example, we can recall the recent incident with the Newbee team, as well as numerous tournaments in which unknown teams play extremely suspiciously.
