First of all I would like to start with saying that when we merged with eSahara and got their StarCraft 2 players, Counter-Strike 1.6 team, and oGs, all those players were contracted under eSahara and paid by Ryad Abour. It was Ryad's responsibility to pay for StarCraft 2, not mine. Their contracts continued for at least 3-4 more months after we merged, and after that period of time we would discuss if those players were worth keeping or not.
Sadly enough we couldn’t support them under Absolute Legends. We did offer Babyknight a contract and he did agree (Didn't sign it yet, just agreed), that's why we announced the contract renewal. However, after a day he decided to sign with FXO, that is another mistake we learned from. Even though we were not obligated to pay or support any of these players we still sent them to events. We even paid 1.000 € to Deathangel to get him back from Korea since he needed to get back and his Visa was almost expired because eSahara couldn’t pay for it. We also paid for various events for Deathangel and I even gave him cash money on Gamescom, but after his results there we decided to not continue with him.
Regarding the so called hotel we didn’t pay
I was not there at dreamhack so he might have contacted the players before me, yes, but again we received no proper invoice at first so we couldn’t pay out. We handled the issue with the hotel manager directly and we paid out after receiving what we need to legally pay out.
Regarding the statement of GoDz
We took in this team while they were playing really good and we knew they were from Australia and this wouldn’t be easy. We still tried everything in our power to get them what they deserve. During the time they were here we did send them to Dreamhack which cost for those 5 players over 10.000$ and we did pay for the hotel at The International ( and bootcamp ) I sent the money for it through paypal. And yes, it is true they had a delay of salary from 2-3 months and before we parted ways with them we paid it out.

Regarding Matt Adams, our previous LoL Caster
His first job was a tournament for Bigpoint where he would get money for a PC. Bigpoint did pay him, but only half since they weren’t allowed to run the tournament by Riot and they were unhappy with Matt being late for the first tournament. We continued to pay Matt always in time even when we had delay of payments. Matt even said to me "I can’t continue this if I don’t get this money, my dad doesn’t see it as a job if I don’t receive this money." so I decided to pay him 1.000 € in advance out of my own money not knowing if I would actually get it back or not.
Regarding Xinec and our previous League of Legends team
Xinec was under contract with us and alongside other teammates did things that broke the rules of our contract which holds a penalty. They didn’t respect their contract and Xinec decided to trash talk us in interviews while we were still negotiating about them.We have paid money to those guys that we didn’t even owe them. We paid some money for rent and bills just so they could continue to play 24/7 even when that wasn’t even obligated from our side to do.
As I said before, I made mistakes in the past and we started this organization with no support or money. We had a bumpy road to begin with. My past being something that has to be always brought up because I was 14 years old and cheated in BroodWar. I am not proud of it, I regret it and if I could do it all over again knowing where we are now I would have never done it. Years later when I was over twenty years old and I started playing League I could have chosen to be someone else, but I thought it was only fair to pick up the silly name WetDreaM again so people know about my past and people not wanting to deal with me because of that have all right to do so. I am far from perfect and I admit I have made mistakes, but that doesn’t mean people have the right to make false accusations towards us.
