Kui eile kuulutasid G7′e mänguriigid CPL’le sõja, siis nüüd on kättemaksu aeg.
Mudamaadlus on juba alanud ja on üsna kindel, et G7 maksab peale CPL’i avaldust neile kätte.
Seal on paar väga huvitavat lõiku. Esiteks loobus CPL kõigist kohustustest raha küsimustes, väites, et selle eest vastutab kolmas osapool. Kas niiviisi on võimalik üldse turniiri korraldada? Nagu näib on paljud mängijad CPL’st auhinnaraha puudumise tõttu kõrvale jäänud. Kuigi CPL ei garanteeri kolmanda osapoole auhinnaraha, peaksid seal olema legaalsed tegevused, mis võetakse kasutusele, sest üks osapool ei saa korraldada turniiri ja siis veel auhinnaraha ka maksta.
Teiseks, võtab CPL tänu SK-Gaming’u ja fnatic’u võitudele palju au endale. See on nüüd küll kuidagi mööda.
[quote]Fnatic announced today that two teams from the G7 organization (SK and Fnatic) are not attending the CPL Winter Event in Dallas. The main reason given is: â€œthe organiser does not show the will to actually proceed with [prize] payouts.â€
We are saddened that two teams that were made famous and somewhat financially independent by competitions and cash prizes at the CPL have engaged in this type of action for reasons we are told are less honorable than â€œrepresenting the community.â€
Sam Mathews, from Fnatic, did present the CPL with a small list of teams claiming they had not received prizes, mostly from licensees of the CPL holding their own cash tournaments with their own sponsors. The CPL explained that while it is not responsible for prizes promised by third-parties, it has repeatedly attempted to contact these third-parties on behalf of the gamers.
The CPL also explained that threatening the league with a G7 boycott was improper and that our organization does not cooperate under threat. Still the CPL Commissioner went through the list and explained the issues involving each claim.
This was obviously insufficient for Mr. Matthews as he decided to act on his threat, and while the CPL respects his right to publicly post his views and to refuse to attend the Winter Event, management believes his action may have other motivating factors.
As a matter of record it is important to also state that the CPL does operate under strict deadline policies which are disclosed in the Terms and Conditions Agreement [link], and communicated repeatedly to all tournament winners via email after the events. Failure to comply does result in a forfeiture of prizes. It is also important to note that less than 2% of our winners in ten years have failed to comply with the deadlines and did not receive their prizes.
The CPL will continue to assist in any possible way the gamers that did not receive prizes promised at unofficial tournaments, but will not agree to blindly hand out checks just because some organization threatens it with negative publicity.[/quote]
