A few days ago, it was reported on Dotesports that the Niko deal with Mousesports was worth $50 million. This number was unsubstantiated and they did not publish proof. A community that was eager to know details of the deal lapped it up and circulated it around as facts.
A few days later, Mouz have revealed that the data is actually factually incorrect. They reprimanded Dotesports for bad journalism without stating their source of facts. It will be a big impediment to the actual credibility of the e sports website which now might be suspect of fabricating data.
@kyurenzCS if you don't know something for 100% you shouldn't publish it. just a tryhard move to get your name under a storyline!

Its a tryhard move to get your name under a storyline. if this is indeed true it speaks very ill of the professionalism of the writers over at Dotesports. We definitely do not commend such reporting by the website
