Nexplay Esports will be replacing the managers involved in the alleged mismanagement raised by the team’s women’s Mobile Legends: Bang Bang squad, Monday.
Based on reports, the managers inside the boot camp were Macy Kalaw and Baby Ignacio. The former was the talk of the town last Sunday as screenshots of her messages to the team surfaced online.
The issue came to light after a member of the women’s MLBB squad namely Myca “Yshin.” Pascual, with the approval of the entire team, posted a lengthy Facebook status that detailed their experiences inside the boot camp.
Nexplay Esports, however, did not identify the manager who was dismissed.
According to the statement, the organization is also conducting an internal investigation on the matter and is currently reaching out to the individuals involved.
“The management of Nexplay is currently conducting its internal investigation on the matters raised by one of the participants in the recent boot camp concerning allegations of mismanagement, among others, and is currently reaching out to the concerned parties,” opened Nexplay Esports’ statement.
“Nexplay management appeals for sobriety and understanding and assures the public especially its supporters that the matters raised are being addressed objectively. Furthermore, the replacement of new boot camp managers is on the way.”
Yshin also cried foul as Nexplay Esports allegedly terminated the squad without due process. The said termination was reportedly done via call. Also part of the complaints were bad food, unfair treatment, and unpaid reimbursements.
The organization’s boot camp consists of two houses. One housing its MPL team and the other its female MLBB and League of Legends: Wild Rift squads.
Nexplay Esports also warned the public for its defamatory remarks against the involved parties.
“While similar incidents may sometimes be unavoidable, everyone is encouraged to likewise be circumspect in their actions as any further defamatory remark against those concerned may result in legal action,” said Nexplay Esports.
“We assure the public that this boot camp shall be a success, that Nexplay shall continue to support Filipino gamers, as their success is yours and our success.”
