35 CS:GO players banned for betting on matches

In October, the Esports Integrity Commission, a body established in 2016 to investigate and prosecute "all forms of cheating in esports, including, but not limited to, match manipulation and doping," suspended seven Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pros for betting on matches—a big no-no in professional sports. (Just ask Pete Rose.) It also warned that those sanctions came as "part of a wider investigation," and that "there are a high volume of investigations being coordinated by ESIC relating to match manipulation behaviour."
