The so-called East Power Cup was managed to promote several Dota 2 matches before the fraud was revealed. It is suspected that the organizers were Russians.
Cybersportsmen from China announced the forgery: they were announced to participate. Several well-known e-sports clubs simultaneously reported that they did not give their consent to the use of their logo, details, etc. Some of them have even turned to law enforcement officers with a corresponding statement. The tournament administrator also communicated the bettors in Russian, expressing several ambiguous phrases. Bookmakers have closed the lines after the release of information received from Chinese clubs.
The tournament itself was suspicious, experts and eSports fans noticed it at the start. For example, it was strange that the server resources of Singapore were used, despite the fact that the competition was laughed at by the participation of only Chinese clubs.
This is not the first case: back in October last year, the esports navigator iquipedia.net warned of possible fake tournaments using its database.
