Former eSports team owner captured by FBI in massive hacking scandal

Former eSports team owner captured by FBI in massive hacking scandal

For the second time in under three months an eSports organization has been embroiled in allegations of cyber crime, and this time the crime has reached James Bond-like levels of international intrigue, with the theft of hundreds of millions of dollars.

The sad part is that the effects of these crimes are going to be felt in eSports, and the press still has an uncomfortable question to answer when it comes to how to cover this sort of crime. We talk about athletes and their own bad behavior, of course, but dealing with this stuff when it comes to video games is still new territory in some ways.
