Dota 2 player accused of betting on his own team to lose competitive match

The professional Dota 2 scene is not unfamiliar with controversy, and a new moment of shame has popped up, as a player has received a lifetime ban for betting against his own team.

The player, Alexey “Solo” Berezin, bet $100 that his team, ROX.Kis, would lose an important match in the Dota 2 Star Series. His team did lose, and Berezin won $322, but there were some suspicious elements to investigate.

The team put on a “suspiciously horrible performance”, which has led to a lifetime ban for Solo, along with 3-year bans for his teammates, BzzIsPerfect, Yol, Dread, and dnq, and a one-year ban for the RoX.KIS organisation.

The team has said that the claims are false, and that the “evidence base is very uncertain in this case”.

ROX.Kis also claim that Solo’s Skype account was hacked, making it possible that his personal information was stolen and the bet made with his egamingbets account.
