Starcraft gamers accused of match rigging!

Post by Kenny on Fri Apr 16, 2010 10:25 pm

Police in South Korea are investigating allegations of match fixing by professional players of sci-fi-themed strategy game StarCraft. The game, made by World of Warcraft developer Blizzard, is enormously popular in South Korea.

Leagues of professional players compete in televised tournaments and receive coaching and sponsorship. However, some players and officials are alleged to have accepted bribes from gambling websites to rig the games.

There has been little coverage of the event in the country's mainstream media but the Korea Times website claims that the Korea e-Sports Association filed charges against individual players and coaches in March 2010.
