Korean authorities arrest 8 for  StarCraft II  match-fixing

Korean authorities arrest 8 for StarCraft II match-fixing

April 21, 2016 | By Christian Nutt

Korean authorities have arrested eight after an investigation into allegations of match-fixing in StarCraft II pro tournament games. One player was allegedly paid 70,000,000 Korean won (over $61,000) to throw a single match, while others were paid closer to $30,000 (35,000,000 Korean won.)

11 individuals were indicted; eight were arrested by authorities, two were not, and one remains at large. 

These details come from a translation of a report issued by the Changwon Regional Prosecution Service posted on pro-gaming site Team Liquid's forums. 

The translation offers the in-game monikers of several players -- as determined by the original poster, though withheld by the prosecution in its official report -- including at least one top-tier competitor.

More details on the incident can be found at Team Liquid's liquidpedia wiki.
