LS takes sponsorship from esports betting website known to facilitate match fixing high elo ranked solo queue games


Recommended Posts

Recently LS has taken a sponsorship from an esports betting website (proof)known as https://esportsbet.io/. This site allows betting on competitive esports matches such as League world championships, Dota, CS:GO, and Valorant.

However, the website also has a"streamers" tab which contains links to place bets on League streamers, as well as streamers from many other competitive games. The list shows live streams (unsure of what the criteria is) who's games are about to start, when you are able to bet on them, their win/loss history, and more. As you can see in the screenshot, my own stream is on there, among many others.

The problem with this is that the existence of these sites ruins competitive integrity among games. My own games on stream, as well as the games of other streamers, such as Tyler1, have been consistently queue sniped by high elo players who have realized they can run it down for profit by betting against the streamer.

Tyler1 in particular has been getting targeted the worst of all, and has been calling this out on his stream.

Example 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXqt4Ialiyo

Example 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLE9D_oFLKw

Example 3: https://youtu.be/-0zeI_5ufv4

Tyler1 explains that he gets games remade constantly on-stream because the players attempting to snipe him and bet on his games sometimes fail and are placed on the enemy team, and instead of playing it out will simply AFK to remake, so the bets are cancelled. This places the control fully in the hands of betters who are then able to freely snipe again and again until they are on his team.

In example 3, the enemy amumu attempts to AFK and remake but fails, so the bet still goes through, while T1 is running it down, and T1 literally predicts him reconnecting to try and counter-run it down.
