Good day, PGR21. This is Jun Byeonghun, the honorary president of KeSPA.
Though you may feel it very uncomfortable and immodest, I humbly ask you to endorse our scene again.
The material below is a statement that I posted on my blog and facebook.
Though we still have quite a ways to go, please support our Proleague.
Today, 2016 SC2 Proleague starts its schedule.
It should be a joyous day, but somehow it feels sad.
Especially, 2016 Proleague took a lot of effort; it was hard to get the cooperation of SKT. Also, it was hard to decide the teams.
Which means, Proleague would not have held had it not been for your advocacy.
I, as a former president of KeSPA and a fan of esprots, am doing my best to uphold the reputation and history of Proleague.
I do understand your feelings; I do always feel despair when I heard of matchfixing. I always request KeSPA to take every possible precaution and deal sternly with the issue.
However, there is a certain limit as to what KesPA is able to.
KeSPA is neither governmental, nor an institution that have the power to investigate things. Though we`re doing our best that we can do, it is very disappointing that we cannot prevent this issues from happening.
However, SC2 fans, we would beg you a favor. Please ignore that corrupted 1% and protect the passion of 99%.
If you abandon and doubt their play, the place where they can play will be demised.
I love you, fans of esports and SC2.
Me, KeSPA and all esports representatives will do our best to improve our esports to entertain you more.
Though we`re having a hard time, Still I hope you to love our SPL, which we`ve been honouring altogether. We shall appreciate and trespass upon your hospitality.
