GodLike Esports responds to poaching allegations made by TSM

- Advertisement -

GodLike Esports was recently facing slander from a large part of BGMI fan base as TSM alleged them of player poaching and recruiting TSM’s ex-IGL, Shadow, to their own roster without approaching TSM in a standard manner.

GodLike has now responded to these allegations and mentioned that Shadow was acquired after his contract was terminated. The organisation is also set to file multiple lawsuits against the people that are releasing private chats and making defamatory statements against GodLike.

TSM and GodLike were caught in a controversy a few days ago when the latter announced that BGMI pro, Shadow, has joined them. TSM had mentioned that Shadow did not leave the organization on legal grounds and that he was still “contracted to TSM.”

Shadow made a revelation of his own in a social media post where he stated that TSM was “harassing, exploiting and threatening” him in some ways. He had asked for the support of his fans and soon afterwards, he joined GodLike Esports.

GodLike did not immediately respond to these allegations and now, they have released a comprehensive statement explaining the matter of Shadow’s acquirement in the organization as well as their stance on facing constant defamation on the social media. The issued statement is as follows:

There is constant slandering against GodLike in the media by an organisation with whom Shadow was associated with. The controversy is being created despite there being none. Shadow legally terminated his contract by sending a termination letter, post which he approached GodLike. We, at GodLike, followed all the legal and ethical procedures while engaging with Shadow, as he was not bound by any agreement in existence. However, Shadow’s erstwhile organisation started defaming Shadow as well as GodLike by releasing his personal chats on social media platforms, which is a violation of privacy and punishable under Indian law. If his erstwhile organisation had any legal ground then we fail to understand why they are defaming and slandering Shadow and GodLike on social media platforms rather than exercising their legal rights. They know they are wrong but are harassing us by creating a hype on social media platforms. Due to constant slandering on media portals and news channels, we are constrained to make this statement that we are in the process of filing a criminal as well as civil case against the people who are releasing private chats and making defamatory statements against GodLike and also against one of the players who is openly abusing Shadow and GodLike on social media platforms. We have never acted below our dignity and never released any personal chats and have never cried foul on social media platforms or harassed anyone we believe in certain ethics. However, there are certain vested elements who trying to pollute the Indian gaming scenario by targeting the players, Indian organisations and the brands endorsed by them. As Indians, we would now definitely like to teach such elements some Indian ethics and law.

According to this statement, Shadow had legally terminated his contract by sending a termination letter to TSM after which he approached GodLike Esports. Shadow was acquired by GodLike by following all the legal and ethical procedures but TSM then started defaming Shadow and GodLike by releasing his personal chats on social media platforms, which is a violation of privacy and punishable under Indian law.

GodLike has also questioned TSM’s stance of slandering them on social media rather than taking a legal recourse to address this contractual issue. GodLike has also said that TSM is wrong and they “harassing us by creating a hype on social media.”

A criminal as well as civil case will be filed by GodLike against the people who are releasing private chats and making defamatory statements against GodLike and also against one of the players who is openly abusing Shadow and GodLike on social media platforms.

GodLike finished the statement by mentioning that the organisation does not take any threats lightly and they will be teaching Indian laws and ethics to certain “elements”, referring to TSM.
