EPS Manager Bastian Veiser über nicht gezahlte Preisgelder
Gestern Abend verkündete GoOdy seinen Abschied aus der EPS, da er seit zwei Jahren keine Preisgelder erhalten habe. Nun äußerte sich der Produktmanager der ESL Pro Series, Sebastian Veiser, auf Teamliquid.net zu den Vorwürfen.
To have no delay in prize money has been our most important priority for a long time.
The ESL has paid out close to $11,500,000 since it started. We paid out $1,194,727 prize money this year, including current as well as outstanding prize money.
ESL does not operate on investment money, therefore the prize money gap cannot be closed instantly. While there are complaints, and for a few months there may still be some, we have reduced outstanding prize money by 50% in the last five months.
We plan to pay out another big chunk in the coming weeks (including most of what GoOdy was referring to).
I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused to the players. It’s the personal priority of mine to make sure the ESL Pro Series is on schedule with the prize money. This is what we are all working towards.

Fazit: Alles wird (hoffentlich) gut... irgendwann.
