Official Statement regarding recent events leading up to MLG Orlando
PRESS STATEMENT - July 2016
Over the past few days operations within Awaken have led to unforseen and unfortunate troubles, and as a company, we regret to inform that we will not be taking place at MLG Orlando in August, and we will take full responsibility and would like to fully apologize to all our supporters worldwide for the situation.
Over the last 3 years, we have never had an issue like this before, and almost every player who we have worked well with in the past will attest that we are a very reputable and respected organisation but a company that has made a very big mistake.
Initially with two months of preparation time, we believed that everything was planned correctly, however with some personal issues with staff expenses, this is unfortunately the outcome of those actions, and we will put measures in place to ensure our future players well-being and happiness and that everything is fully secured without any issues from our staff's personal lifes.
To all of our previous players and supporters, we know many of you have had great experiences with us and we ask that you please remember us in this light and let us work to remind you who, as an organisation, we once were and show you who we will strive to become. and to our fans, we know we have also let you down massively. We will do everything in our power to rebuild our reputation.
Chief of Staff, Awaken eSports
