TIMELINE

The Match Fixing Scandal was an incident in which Korean pro players illegally fixed and bet on professional StarCraft matches. The players were approached by online betting websites and agreed to throw games for financial gain, either from the money the websites paid them, or by betting against themselves. These activities are strictly illegal under Korean law. The 11 players involved were banned from professional gaming, and some of them face criminal charges and the possibility of jail time. 5 years later, a similar incident was discovered in StarCraft II.

Waxangel made a post on TeamLiquid[1] about rumours of match-fixing in Korea and some people were involved in finding out more information. This led to a blog post from TL user Rekrul about the match-fixing[2] on April 10th, 2010 spawned the idea that some progamers had been fixing matches for personal gain.

Some people, eSpecial">Specially Kim Carrier, have felt that an extremely harsh punishment must be exacted on the offenders, though the debate was ongoing as to whether a harsh punishment is necessary. Ultimately, players were fined, put on probation and into programs depending on the severity of their involvement.

As of the June 9th 2010, these 11 players were permanently banned from progaming by KeSPA. [6][7]

In October 2010, aside from being banned the players received the following fines and penalties:
