The Controversial History of Denial Esports: Four Years of Scandal Explained

by devaccess



Denial Esports is a name that comes with a lot of baggage. For years the org was mired in reports of late or nonexistent salary and prize money payments and now they’re back in the news, for all the wrong reasons.

First up, it's in the name. Denial Esports…Deny. There is a lot of power in what name you have. Second, the stem of debt mismanagement is rooted in the business system of the org itself. The new CEO is using the same business acumen of the former. I don't blame the new CEO. He envisioned how to revive the org and give it a new face. But he used the old system management practices the old CEO used to run Denial. IMO, Denial should be shut down completely.

Now the current CoD team that was under denial own the team license and are looking for a new org to represent them at CWL Anaheim in two weeks. So it looks like they might shut down again.

The biggest issue is that a lot of these players are younger guys who aren't as business/contract savvy. Any other person would quit pretty quick and file a wage claim if they didn't get paid for 2 months. They are being taken advantage of by assholes

You see Zach Smith's "It's not personal, it's just business" Twitter motto?

It perfectly describes how he's a rich scam artist that uses contractual loopholes to legally steal from his players.
