The investigation into the match-fixing report that rocked Southeast Asian MLBB scene has finally come to light as officials of the MLBB Pro League Malaysia have declared Nik “Dominus” Muhyyiddin, a midlaner of Bountee Esports MLBB team, as the one behind the shady activity.

Per an official announcement from MPL MY, Dominus was found guilty of trying to rig a match in the ongoing MPL MY Season 13 competition. Additionally, officials revealed that he also tried to sway his own teammates to throw a game in that tournament.

The statement reads, “Nik “Dominus” Muhyyiddin attempted to engage in match-fixing and offered financial incentives to two Bountee Esports players to throw a match. These are serious violations of integrity and professionalism.”
