Facing Challenges Beyond the Game

EG’s recent history has been marred by controversies, including allegations by journalist Richard Lewis about the organization’s attempts to block player exits despite buyout offers.

  • High-profile departures include Ethan Arnold and Max «Demon1» Mazanov to NRG Esports, and Kelden «Boostio» Pupello to 100 Thieves.
