Match fixing is the true enemy of sports spirit and culture

Match-fixing really messes up the world of sports. It makes games feel fake because the results are already decided, not by the players skills or hard work but by someones dishonest plans.

This causes fans to lose interest and trust, as they no longer see the point in cheering for their team if the game is rigged.

However, please note that nothing is official yet, and the officials are still looking into the matter.

We are still not sure if a player, coach, team, or organization fixed any of the games so far, and it is best to wait for the official decision.

Until then, there is not much to do but to watch other leagues, such as LCS and LEC.

Right now, you can tune into the LCS 2024 Spring Playoffs and catch the action at the highest level of competition.

NRG Esports and Dignitas are already out, and there are only four teams left: FlyQuest, Cloud9, 100 Thieves, and Team Liquid.
