Ikka tuleme tagasi antud teema juurde, G7(ehk siis pikemalt, need organisatsioonid, kes on espordi eesotsas) ning CPL(küberatleetide prof. liiga) veavad juba pikemat aega vägikaigast selle üle, et kas osaleda CPL’i tulevastel turniiridel või mitte. Üks fnaticu ajakirjanikest pani kokku ka artikli, milles on näga nii G7 kui ka CPLi teadaannet antud teema asjus ning lisaks ka community, ehk siis meie arvamus. Mul endal õnnestus ka kaasa rääkida, ning teise lehe peal on ka minu enda kommentaar – tegemist on hea ning hariva lugemisega antud vallas, et võite pilgu peale visata.

First of all, let’s start with G7 itself. What on earth is G7? Some bunch of wannabes trying to “do” something for the eSport and games. Well, idea itself is great, I support it, but when we start looking deeper…for instance, what have they done so far? I bet you know the answer for that, they have done nothing. G7 is just “something” that is on paper â€“ you have to agree on that one. Now, years later after establishing it, it starts to raise the head…well, isn’t it a bit too late or is it not? I bet that without the G7, teams would have done the same thingâ€¦not attend CPL.
Month after month it is becoming more obvious that CPL is in a role of titanic â€“ going down slowly. Halo3 event with 1 million US$? Publicity stunt? Maybe but not as good as the roccat one though. And CPL coming out with a statement that they received some negative feedback from the community?! Best excuse I have ever heard…not. The statement that was made by CPL about the prize money, of course nobody wants to be blamed for not paying out prize money but when you rent out your brand, trademark (..or whatever) you should make it rock solid that it will not harm your brand/trademark in the end.
Now there is a situation where CPL claims that they are not responsible for paying out money for “others”, but still they are the ones that get all the dirt, so whose fault is that? And the fact that CPL or some “other” companies that rented the name for a tournament have not paid out the prize money is 100% correct; I know it from the people that were supposed to get that money.
To conclude this I think that G7 did the right thing boycotting CPL. Only solution I see for CPL is to run CPL Summer as good as they can and pay out the prizes in cash, right on the spot, on the stage. Just try to save what you have left…
