Esports betting generates lucrative opportunities for some players to make money. Reddit user u/Ajijijiji recently posted a link to a Weibo post with a series of screenshots suggesting that former Invictus Gaming player and The International 2 winner ChuaN might be involved in match-fixing.
Another reddit user provided translation for the first picture, where OP’s source allegedly talks to ChuaN. In that chat the famous player discusses someone he knows, who has “done it multiple times”, but “is going to stop for a while” and “play properly”. At the end of the screenshot section ChuaN asks: “How much are you going to transfer me after this round?”
Another part of the image contains screenshots of ChuaN’s bank account with money transfers around 5000 Chinese Yuan (supposedly), roughly $80.
So far, the only thing that creates a semblance of credibility to this story is a comment from ChuaN ’s former coach. In the original Weibo thread, the coach called ChuaN a bad person and the only former member of IG team whom he deleted from the contact list on WeChan (a popular messenger like WhatsApp).
The last comments don’t directly support match-fixing accusations but add a layer of controversy around the Dota 2 star. We will let you know once this story gets a development.
