HLTV.org gave up on covering Chinese LAN after suspicious matches
HLTV.org consultant Peter Milovanovic reported that the coverage of the Chinese ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup 2 has been terminated. In this way the authoritative portal reacted to the suspicious play of the contestants, which was pointed out by journalist Richard Lewis on his Twitter.
And I am very convinced that Chinese TOs are fully aware of this.— Petar Milovanovic (@Tgwri1s) May 6, 2021
All of them insist on running round robin, and when we tell them either change it or no coverage, they complain we're biased.
No TO has made an effort to fix this issue in Asian CS, including Perfect World
Three years ago, Milovanovic, as COO of HLTV.org, announced the decision to suspend coverage of all Asian online tournaments except for regional qualifications for major championships. According to him, management made a mistake when it decided that ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup 2 could be added to the site because it was in LAN format.
ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup 2 takes place May 5-8 in Wuxi, China. Six competitors, including established teams TYLOO and Wings Up, are competing for a $30,000 prize pool.
