We are very sorry for the inconvenience it may cause but we feel strongly about punishing a player who has not honored any of the commitments he had signed up for.
As you may have noticed (or unnoticed actually), Sjow has been absent from the European scene since he has joined Eclypsia. He has only played few tournaments and we can’t but regret his lack of results and motivation. Some may for example remember his elimination from the Battle at Ministry of Win in August right from the first group stage on a 0-2/1-4 score.
Sjow asked Eclypsia to have him join the Ministry of Win in September 2012. He had then committed to increase his gaming level and be more visible online. He was indeed supposed to stream his trainings.
We are today very sorry to admit none of these commitments were or are being honored. We really wish for this period to be enough to receive from our player a satisfying answer. We still hope to see Sjow at the top very soon.
Sjow at the moment is not playing SC2. This means we cannot pay him for being a SC2 player.
If SjoW wants to come back and play we will be glad to continue. If he doesn't however he will not be a paid member of Eclypsia. We believe we can resolve the issue so at the moment we have just ordered a suspension rather than removal.
If SjoW wants to leave the team he is free to go. If he wants to return he is more than welcome but as it stands we cannot pay somebody who is not playing the game they are paid for.
