In some bizarre eSports news, players in the G-1 Dota 2 league have suffered DDOS attacks supposedly as a result of hacking by some one trying to fix the results in order to win $20, 000.
As reported the attacks started on 14 April during a match between eSports superstars Evil Geniuses and Absolute Legends, players from Evil Geniuses disconnected from the game, unable to reconnect. The match was postponed, but eventually the win was given to Absolute Legends after a long pause. Absolute Legends had the advantage at the time of the attack.
This was the first out of a series of attacks, going on through the next day. Team Dignitas and QPAD Red Pandas suffered the worst of the attacks. After a short lived game, two Dignitas players disconnected followed by an attack on streamer Ayesee, who was shoutcasting the match. Admins had no choice but to postpone the game.
