The Leaderboard: This week in esports
On this week’s edition of the Leaderboard, the panel discusses Marcin “Kori” Wolski, the player who tried to leave European League Championship Series team Meet Your Makers, only to return following threats made against him and his family by the team’s manager.
The discussion dives into the culture in competitive gaming that allows this sort of event to occur, and touches on what could potentially be done to stop similar things from happening in the future.
We also tackle the continued problem of match-fixing in Counter-Strike and Valve’s attempts to ban perpetrators, the triumph of Evil Geniuses at the Dota 2 Asia Championships in spite of the team’s recent roster turnover, and an unfortunate development for the Project M community.
