HuomaoTV fires employee who offered to fix matches ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

HuomaoTV has fired an employee after he made an offer to forZe to fix matches. 

HuoamoTV' PR Department released this statement via Twitter regarding the matter: 


On February 19 2020, HuomaoTV was told that one of our DOTA2 team staff name Haotian Xu (Discord ID: MAX XU # 8219) had contacted Team Forze suggesting match-fixing in a DOTA online tournament ( Arena of Blood). HuomaoTV conducted verification immediately and this employee had admitted the fact of him doing it by taking advantage of his role in HuomaoTV. HuomaoTV has fired Haotian Xu and reserves the right to pursue the matter due do the bad influence on the company brand.

No further details have been released from forZe or HuomaoTV about what was offered, but regardless, match-fixing is a severe offense. 

A match-fixing scandal in CS:GO was carried out back in 2014 by the then iBUYPOWER and NetCodeGuides teams. The match took place at CEVO Professional Season 5, where the heavy favorites in iBUYPOWER threw their match against NetCodeGuides. A series of bans were issued to varying members of each of the teams. 

It is great to see that HuomaoTV was able to resolve this in its early stages before it turned into something much bigger.
