Hiya. It’s been quite some time since I've discussed Team Secret with the community. As you may have read Kemal will be parting from our organization and John Yao will be taking on the role of CEO effective today. Despite some differences in opinion between Kemal and myself, we thank him for his time and wish him all the best in the future and hope we can both learn from our time together at Secret to make better decisions in future endeavors.
I would like to use this opportunity to address some of the drama involving previous players and our management. Ultimately, as an owner of Secret I am responsible for all aspects of running the company. I apologize to those players who may have felt team secret did not meet or fulfill their expectations. I also understand that some managerial decisions have affected/impacted players negatively. However, I’m glad to be able to say that we have fulfilled all of our obligations towards previous players for their time at secret. This leaves to address our present and future.
Today, as we experience a transition in management, I would like to thank our current roster for their support and understanding throughout these events. Their continued support to Team Secret has helped me immensely as a teammate, owner and friend. The same can be said about our fans who have stood by us, and though it did pain me to read a very black and white version of the situation over social media regarding previous events, I just want to say thank you to our supporters and I hope we can make you proud to be team secret fans for years to come. I can honestly say we are very proud to have you as our fans.
I know I could have said more, and we will certainly keep you updated on Secret moving forward. But for now, I think it’s best we focus on the future and our actions as Team Secret.
So it’s heads down in preparation for the Kiev Major qualifier next. I’m quite excited for the future of our team and organization. Hopefully we’ll see you at future events.
Thank you for reading,
Owner, Captain, hardware QA expert and 1v1 cage fighter.
