"They were offering a lot of money". Dosia shared his experience with match-fixing in Gambit

Forward's Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov said that he encountered organizers of match-fixes while competing for Gambit. In an interview with Cybersport.ru, the Russian esports athlete told that the offers amounted to "tens of thousands of dollars" for specific actions during matches that wouldn't decisively impact the final result.

When we actively competed for Gambit, we have encountered the 322 offers. They texted via VK, found us in Telegram, and were offering a lot of money. <...> They offered tens of thousands of dollars, something like that. Without getting into specifics, they required doing basic things like losing a pistol round, buying a certain weapon, something else. Nonsense like that. I feel like now these people who texted then and tried to reach out specifically to players and teams, are already simply creating tournaments, teams for these tournaments and doing what they want.

Fake tournaments and teams 100% exist. Advanced League at ESEA, for instance, – half of the rosters are completely unknown, the players are unknown. Although there are no betting during the regular season, it becomes available at the playoff stage. Well, it's also clear that one slot in Advanced costs from $5K. Sitting like this and farming $5K per month is also not bad, in fact.

Notably, Dosia represented Gambit from 2016 to 2019. In addition to winners multiple big tournaments, together with his team he also secured the PGL Major Krakow 2017 title.
