The Summit 2 is an upcoming Dota 2 tournament hosted by BTS (Beyond The Summit) boasting a huge prize pool of around $236,000 and it boasts sponsors the likes of G2A, Twitch and 100Tb.
Arrow Gaming, a malaysian e-sports group who are currently focusing on Dota 2, were all set to enter The Summit 2 when they were discovered to have been caught up in the recent match result tampering that has been terrorising the professional e-sports scene over the last week.
It’s stomach wrenching to find out this kind of information, especially with a team who I watched shine in the Ti4 qualifiers.
David “GoDz” Parker, a prominent figure in the professional Dota 2 community, has released a statement on the situation. Writing on Reddit, he says “It’s stomach wrenching to find out this kind of information, especially with a team who I watched shine in the Ti4 qualifiers.” states “Unfortunately, after further investigations into these match-fixing incidents, we’ll also be removing Arrow from The Summit 2 SEA division.”
The future for Arrow Gaming doesn’t look very bright at present and we’ll be watching close to see how and if they manage to pick themselves up after this incident.
Our management is at the moment investigating and contacting relevant parties regarding this accusation involving two players from Arrow Gaming in the ”322” scandal.
Pertaining to this matter, should an Arrow player be proven guilty of such unethical work engagement, it will not be tolerated by our management and strict actions will be enforced.
On a side note, Arrow Gaming team, since its first establishment in Jan 2014, has shown nothing but pure dedication and innermost determination to create a brand name for the team so that AG can be one of those admired teams in the arena of Dota2. The management will not condone any unprofessional involvement which can tarnish the team name and disappoint their many fans.
