1. We consider the entire cycle of StarLadder Major Berlin 2019, from Minors to the Grand Final, as one project. And talents are being paid in one transaction for all stages of the tournament. Usually, when we collaborate with talents all payments are made within 45-90 days from the date of the project completion. It’s been our understanding with talents for years. This is due to the fact that all tournament organizers receive sponsorships and other payments within 3-6 months after a tournament is over.
2. As we all know, the Berlin Major ended on September 8. Most of the payments towards talents were completed in November, 2 months after the Major.
3. The last payments, to Spunj and Machine, were made at the beginning of this week. So, as per usual, we’ve paid in full within three months after the end of the project.
4. The transfer for HenryG was sent on November 8, but unfortunately, there was a delay in a correspondent bank. HenryG was aware of this situation, we provided all the documents confirming the payment, and also asked him to contact the bank and provide these documents in order to expedite a resolution to his situation. As for us, we are doing our best to help HenryG to resolve a problem as quickly as possible.
5. There are no outstanding payments to CS:GO talents for StarSeries tournaments and StarLadder Major Berlin 2019 (except for season 8, which ended on October 27).
