Addressing Past Controversies

EG’s recent history has been marred by controversies, particularly concerning player welfare. Earlier this year, the organization faced criticism for not adequately supporting League of Legends player Kyle “Danny” Sakamaki during his mental health struggles. This incident underscored the need for better player support systems within the organization.

Financial Adjustments Post-Championship

Following their victory at the VALORANT Champions 2023, EG encountered financial challenges, struggling to maintain the same pay rates for its championship roster into 2024. This led to significant changes in the team’s composition and raised questions about the organization’s financial management.

Organizational Restructuring

In addition to financial hurdles, EG has been working on improving internal operations. Reports of extreme working conditions and a wave of layoffs have prompted the organization to focus on creating a healthier work environment and better employee support structures.

Focused Future: VALORANT at the Forefront

As part of its strategic realignment, EG is now concentrating its competitive efforts on VALORANT. This shift comes as the organization scales back its presence in other major esports titles like League of Legends, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike.
