Myunb 0ng blev fyret fra New York Excelsior uden hans videndeS0d
The New York Excelsior esports organization has announced that Seo 'Myunb0ng' Sang-min is leaving the Overwatch roster. It was later revealed that the player learned of his dismissal from Twitter.
Myunb0ng commented on the situation as follows:
I was notified during a feedback session that I had been fired from the organization. It seems to me that I was suddenly kicked due to a mistake by the marketing or SMM team.
The sudden news was the result of a mistake from another department of the club, but that I have not heard anything about a possible dismissal seems highly unjustified.
NY Excelsior later released a statement apologizing and explaining the error. The reason is said to be poor communication within the organization regarding this decision.
The club's management gave the following comment:
Myunb0ng, we are very sorry for our miscommunication and putting you in this position. And while we would like this communication to be better, we truly appreciate the time spent with you and sincerely wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
The 23-year-old South Korean esportsman joined NY Excelsior in early January of this year as a support player. During his time with NY Excelsior, they took part in the qualifiers for the Overwatch League 2022 - Kickoff Clash, where they stopped in 11th place, which did not allow the club to qualify for the main stage of the tournament. As part of the Overwatch League 2022 - Midseason Madness - Qualifiers, the team could not improve their result and also took 11th place, not getting into this championship.
Now the Korean roster of the organization from New York is participating in the qualifiers for the Overwatch League 2022 - Summer Showdown. The NY Excelsior have already managed to defeat the Houston Outlaws. To travel to LAN, you need to get into the top 8 of the standings.
The composition of NY Excelsior is presented below:
Recall that Overwatch League 2022 - Summer Showdown will be held from September 8 to 11 this year in Toronto, Canada. The venue will be the Mattamy Athletic Centre. 12 teams will compete for a $225,000 prize pool and OWL points.
