KILLERFISH’s matches will no longer appear on CSGOLounge following suspicious betting activity in the German team’s matches.
According to CSGOLounge’s Robert “ML” Yakubovski, who acts as a spokesperson for the website, red flags were raised after “suspicious betting patterns” were discovered in a series of matches involving KILLERFISH.
This is not the first time that the former WinneR team are involved in a betting scandal: back in February, Robin “r0bs3n” Stephan’s side were disqualified from ESL One Katowice due to a suspected involvement in a match-fixing case that Valve is still investigating.

Later on, the German team signed for KILLERFISH and finished runners-up to mousesports at the ESL Spring Championship finals, which took place in Duisburg last month.
“Recently we’ve been tracking the betting patterns behind all matches Killer Fish are involved in,” CSGOLounge said in a statement.
“What we found was very suspicious activity, with over 100 accounts max betting either for or against them – and winning the bet with 100% accuracy.
“These betting accounts were all on the same i.p. and seems very suspicious to us – so much so, that we feel uncomfortable hosting any of Killer Fish’s games going forward.
“We hope you understand our decision to protect the CS:GO scene and the integrity of CSGOLounge.”
KILLERFISH are currently taking part in Acer Predator Masters, which is where some of this suspicious betting activity is believed to have happened.
