Max Katz “purest” shared the report on September 12, explaining that players will face significant pay cuts if they decide to stay with the team.

A few days ago, EG released four players from the team’s reserve roster, Vincent “Apotheon” Le, Brendan “BcJ” Jensen, Jacob “icy” Lange, and Jeffrey “Reformed” Lu.

EG also fired Addison “zecK” Gorzeck and Tony “Zikz” Gray, who were the team’s successful coaches during the 2023 VCT season.

While the North American organization has yet to make an official statement, as of this writing, EG players have expressed their concerns on social media, strongly hinting that the team has made significant changes, in line with purest’s report.

Ethan “Ethan” Arnold said on his social media,“I miss old esports where if you were good, you were on a good team. Where there was something to grind for, and if you did it successfully, you got to reap the benefits. Where winning was everything.”

He added a few hours later, “Winning is cool, sucks it doesn’t matter anymore.”

“No matter what you do, it doesn’t matter,” said Corbin “C0M” Lee. “Winning doesn’t matter. Just loved this year and the people I was around no matter what.”

“Nothing is perfect. Winning doesn’t mean anything,” said Alexander “jawgemo” Mor. “Until next time.”

EG’s in-game leader Kelden “Boostio” Pupello also expressed his skepticism but provided no further context.

EG had a rocky start to the year, with the North American team struggling in VCT LOCK//IN, finishing in 9-16th place. When the VCT Americas League began, they fell down the standings with a 1-5 record just five weeks into the regular season.

When their roster finally stabilized with the addition of Max “Demon1” Mazanov, EG got into their groove and has stayed that way ever since. They had an incredible run at the VCT Americas Playoffs, finishing third, which qualified them for the VCT’s only Masters tournament in the 2023 season.

The NA team continued to improve, finishing second at the Tokyo Masters in Japan after losing 0-3 to Fnatic in the finals.

EG exceeded all expectations by winning the 2023 Valorant Championship in Los Angeles, California. The victory was significant as they captured the Valorant World Championship in their home country and defeated Pacific League champions Paper Rex 3-1 in the Grand Finals.
