The manager of the ex-roster of Imperial Pro Gaming, who will complete participation under the same tag as part of the Dota Pro Circuit, but will subsequently perform under the Tequila banner, told interesting news. He showed how a bookmaker's representative approached him on Discord with an offer to take part in a fake match. He asked if Imperial Pro Gaming would like to merge the match within the Dota Pro Circuit, which will take place against VP.Prodigy. For this, the team would receive $ 12,000.
The person who introduced himself as Chen also reported that there was an alternative. If Imperial Pro Gaming does not want to be defeated in the match, then they can lose one map and get $ 5,000 for it. In addition, the representative of the bookmaker said that the office could work with players on long-term cooperation, in connection with which cybersportsmen could forget about financial problems.
Andrey "Zealoth" Lozinsky said that the team, without thinking, abandoned this venture, as it has its own principles. The players wanted to show great results in order to later find an e-sports club with which they could cooperate. As a result, they defeated VP.Prodigy with a score of 2-1.
Sergey Glamazda, General Manager of Virtus.pro spoke about similar offers from Chinese investors.
