Yesterday we reported, that MacSed a StarCraft 2 player from China is suspected of match fixing in a game against Seventy91. A TeamLiquid Forum user was the first to break out this story by sharing his observations regarding betting manipulations. In the game, MacSed made obvious mistakes which led to him losing to a cheese.
In his response on social media MacSed explained that Rail, another participant of WESG 2018 finals, coached Seventy91 to go for proxy gates, which helped him win. MacSed thought he was blind countered with a hidden base, and that’s why he didn’t block off his own base natural.
The part of the story that Seventy91 got help from Rail is corroborated by both of them, but it doesn’t account for other problems, such as and not limited to:
- The Probes used to cannon-rush were sent late.
- The position of the second Pylon inside Seventy91’s natural is questionable.
- MacSed revealed he was cannon rushing ahead of time.
- MacSed failed to cancel two cannons and didn’t even finish the job of cannon rushing the opponent.
According to a WESG admin, there is an investigation into the matter.
