At the very start of every competition, before the lights and the fandom, there is something truly beautiful.

A group of people united in passion. Pushing the game they love to its limits, in the hopes that one day, their dreams will be realized.

It’s a path esports fans are all to familiar with. But in the pursuit of every great competition. There is a darker side to the journey.

This is the story of matches thrown and careers lost. The story of what happens when the dark underbelly of professional competition rears its ugly head.

A story of kids who messed up and paid the ultimate price.

This is the story of match fixing in esports.
