Chinese Starcraft players banned for match fixing

Blizzard banned seven Chinese StarCraft 2 players Saturday for offenses ranging from smurfing to match fixing.

Blizzard laid out the penalties last week for seven Chinese professionals for their illegal actions. The players in question are Pang “Punk” Hao, Wu “Coffee” Yishen, Yin “Silky” Yongxin, Zheng “JIN” Zhuoming, Chen-Zhang “BreakingGG” Yijie, and two players known only as JIN and 麦乐鸡块.

Punk has been banned from all official and sanctioned tournaments for two years for match fixing and smurfing, Coffee has been banned from all official and sanctioned tournaments for one year and half, for match fixing, Silky has been banned from all official and sanctioned tournaments for one year for smurfing, while JIN, Park, BreakingGG, and 麦乐鸡块 have all been banned from all official and sanctioned tournaments for six months.

All seven players have had their Blizzard accounts permanently closed, and have lost all the rewards from related tournaments as well.
