WePlay Esports media holding company officially joins Esports Integrity Commission

Joining forces with ESIC will aid WePlay Esports in creating new tournament circuits.

WePlay Esports has officially joined the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), who fights for fair play in esports. This will aid efforts in detecting malpractice and any type of manipulation of competitive matches during WePlay Esports events.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, esports betting has been on the rise. Unfortunately, this has also led to certain players seeking lucrative means of gaining profits. The nature of many esports titles creates ways to manipulate match results, and it’s important that the esports community has the means to stand up to the offenders.

WePlay Esports has cooperated with ESIC before by exchanging information during match investigations and supporting a recent ruling regarding the CS:GO “coach bug” exploitation. Officially joining ESIC was a natural step for our media holding company that, in 2021 and 2022, plans to expand to new esports titles and create new tournament circuits.

Oleh Humeniuk, General Manager at WePlay Esports media holding company says, “We are taking competitive integrity very seriously and apply a zero-tolerance policy to match manipulations of any kind.”
