IMT’s Noah’s letter to player regarding the PEA drama

Esports Asia News
The news of PEA has quickly snowballed in the past few days. The latest installment in the discussion concerning the PEA league, teams, and players comes from Noah Whinston, Immortals’ CEO and a Player Relations Committee Member for PEA. Whinston’s letter opens with six “TL:DR” points:
1) The intention of the PEA League is to create a better league for both American players and organizations. It is not an exclusive league. The teams will continue competing in non-PEA operated leagues and tournaments. 2) It is not financially viable for organizations to run a PEA CSGO league and also participate in all of the other existing online leagues because of issues with over-saturation. 3) PEA proposed a compromise to WESA to resolve the over-saturation issue, which WESA declined. 4) Though PEA organizations unambiguously have the contractual right to decide where their players compete, the organizations have decided to offer the players the choice to either participate in the PEA league or in the ESL Pro League North American division. 5) Financially, the PEA league offers more money to NA players. The PEA league pays out a guaranteed minimum average of $81,250 per PEA team (prize money + minimum guaranteed profit share), compared to a guaranteed minimum average of $21,428.57 (see per NA team in ESL Pro League (and a maximum average of $49,857.14 per team if NA teams took all the top 6 spots at the NA/EU EPL LAN final). 6) We sympathize with the players’ sentiments around not feeling more included in the decision-making process and we acknowledge that we could and should have done better. That’s why, in good faith, we’re going to give this decision to them.
