A Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team has been accused of match fixing to gain as much as $ 20,850 in in-game items.

Steam has incorporated a betting system in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, but instead of betting cash, you turn in in-game items. Polish team ALSEN allegedly bet on their rivals before the game began, and then intentionally threw the game to win those items later. Three members of ALSEN were directly implicated, although their teammates also stand accused of knowing about their plans and not acting on it.

Since money was not directly involved, the team may not face any legal liability. However, this is suspicious activity for sure, and it would be unusual if the team did not receive any punishment, from either their Polish sponsors in the ESL Pro Series or Valve itself.
