Over at Cadred, Richard Lewis reviews the South Korean Starcraft betting scandal that has rocked e-sports. The article is a highly researched and brilliantly written piece for those of us in the West who know a little about Starcraft, but may not be aware of the betting scandal which has hit Korean esports recently.
"At a little before two o’clock in the afternoon the site news.naver.com broke a story that would send shockwaves not only round the country, but around the world. It alleged that it had uncovered details of an illegal gambling ring that was fixing the outcome of high profile Starcraft matches to buck the odds and earn significant profits. It also alleged that unnamed notable players had been involved with the scam, as well as key members of their organisations."
