I hope that you all just watched the NiP vs. Fnatic series. If not, you guys missed one of the best series in CS GO history.

 

I can't wrap my head around what I just watched.

I don't know much about CS so can someone explain to me what they actually did? Did they fix their matches or were they betting on their matches or something?

They bet against themselves in a match in August. They were like 20% to win or something. They made around $10,000 off of in game skins from the match fixing

Here's the whole story

http://www.dailydot.com/esports/match-fixing-counter-strike-ibuypower-netcode-guides/

 

They had a match scheduled against a team they easily should of beat, they had a third party bet weapon skins (that are worth real money) that the other team would win, they threw the match and as a result earned 10k worth of weapon skins for doing so

 

They basically stole from innocent fans, skim that article tho, it's very informative and interesting

 

 

I WAS a IBP fan so this is pretty shitty news

Ohhhh ok gotcha, thanks. When I read the snippet I was like "who gives a shit about weapon skins" lol. But since they are worth money I get it now.

Wonder who will step up in the NA scene now. Hoping JDM can play well at clutchcon with SKDC, always been one of my favourite players.

A few bits in there that could be beneficial for most skill levels.

 

Adren puts out great vids to help you improve. Also enjoy Steels content even though he's banned now.

Tried playing CS:GO last night for about the first time... or at least the first time I actually tried hard..... I am straight up awful. This game is insanely hard. I have played CS in the past but never things other than huge servers of Office 24/7 which is a night and day difference.

 

If anyone from Beyond is also terrible and looking to play let me know. I would hate to drag down good players but having some folks to play with would be cool.
