9Pandas recently added a Dota 2 squad to its esports roster. However, one of the members of this squad is involved in the match-fixing controversy.
Last April 1, the Dota 2 team HellRaisers managed to win a place to compete in the famous Berlin Major. However, despite the brilliant trajectory, the team left its former organization soon after. Consequently, the team was homeless, but recently they have reported that they are now part of the Serbian organization called 9Pandas.
According to a press release yesterday, the organization has been preparing this change for over a month.

A player from the new 9Pandas squad is splashed with Dota 2 match-fixing controversy
9Pandas made its name on a reality show; now, it hopes to make its way and build a reputation with one of the best Dota 2 squads in Eastern Europe. The organization claims that despite creating interesting esports content, its main goal is to win as many competitions as possible.
However, amidst the euphoria over their new Dota 2 squad and sponsorship deal. One of the players found himself heavily accused of being part of the organization that rigged Dota 2 matches. We are talking about Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev; however, the 9Pandas player defended his name and reputation by setting the record straight.
RAMZES666 has commented that he has never been involved in match-fixing issues; however, he claims he has not been related to the organization behind all this. In addition, RAMZES666 comments that it would be extremely stupid to put your job and what sustains you every day at risk.
After being accused, the player states that this issue is fun and silly for him. Furthermore, he adds that he despises everyone involved in this disloyal affair; he refers to the other players mentioned in the video that exposed the match-fixing.
Morf’s mistake in accusing RAMZES666
Morf was in charge of making the accusations against one of the best players in Dota 2. However, after publishing the video, Morf apologizes to RAMZES666 and feels sorry for involving the best player in such a shady issue.
To clarify this accusation, Morf comments that there was confusion with the name, the person involved in match-fixing is called Ramsay and not RAMZES as he had claimed at the beginning. The video’s author thought it was a mistake of his source and did not know the player’s name, which is why RAMZES666 was implicated in this accusation. However, they were referring to another person, not the 9Panda player.
Now the situation is clarified, and it is known that RAMZES666 is not involved in the Dota 2 match-fixing issue.
