On a more important note, what Arkanum describes below is why players HAVE to be careful with contracts they sign.

Why I have to leave competitive Halo

Earlier I tweeted that I was going to step back from competitive halo and stream still. Lots of people have inquired about what brought this on especially considering my love for competing. What I will say is this situation is not what I ever wanted and I'm going to shed light on it to the best of my abilities. This past IG Columbus I had gone to the event as Annex under the Annex organization I was teaming with killrelevant, omega, and former teammate shooter. Great guys, but we didn't play well as a team. We performed sub par and I was unhappy. Post event, I got an offer from Devon and Contra to team with them and Blaze. Initially I wanted to stick with my team and try to make it work but decided this was by far the better offer and a much better team and figured this was for me. I told my team my thoughts and one of them beat me to telling the guys at Annex. I spoke with them (Annex management) and they said if I felt this wasn't the place for me they couldn't force me to stay and they wished me the best. They then decided instead of releasing me, like implied and assumingly agreed upon in our first conversation, that they weren't going to release me and instead force an unreasonable sum for any team to get me out of contract. Now I am stuck here, yes partly my fault for trusting in a small org and rushing into this pre columbus, but I tried an alternative route and it didn't work, I tried some negotiating and that didn't work( Annex won't negotiate at all). So here I am trapped, unable to compete at anymore tournaments this season, binded and seemingly imprisoned with no choice but to stay solo and stream and focus on "irl" things. In all this all I want to do is keep competing and get the team I feel I deserve and can contend with my peers and create something for myself, but that isn't happening this season it appears. Thanks to all those who support me and I hope you continue to support me. Much love - Arkanum

 To the eSports Community,


My name is Sri H, Vakulabharanam, I am a Co-Owner at Annex. I would like to take this time to explain our Halo team situation with Jacob (Arkanum). I would like to begin by writing out a timeline in which actions by Jacob and Annex took place.

Dec 13th (IG Columbus): Annex Placed Top 12 at Columbus, the team (Other players) and Jacob felt that they underachieved.

Dec 14th (IG Columbus): After long conversations the night before and on this date, Jacob said to me personally “Unless I get an offer that I think is going land me on a top team, I will not be leaving this team” after that statement he also stated “but I don’t think I will leave Annex”.

Dec 15th: After a long weekend. I contacted Jacob in regards to his status as a player for Annex Halo, and I came back with the assumption that he wants to stick with Annex.

Dec 16th: I was contact by Jesse and Yousef stating that Jacob has decided to part ways from the Halo team, and explore his options.

Dec 17th: Jacob approaches the Annex Management and voices his opinion that he wants to be released, he also claims that our contract between him and the organization is invalid.

Dec 18th: Annex as an organization took this day to contact our lawyer to confirm that our contract is in fact valid, and that by Jacob disclosing the contract to his family and friend he has breached the terms of the contract.

This was also the date that @ClanLuckyStrike Announced their new Roster with Jacob being a part of it, without Annex releasing him, Annex as an organization was not informed by Jacob or CLS that this transaction was in process. https://twitter.com/CLS_Halo/status/545778473042968576

Dec 19th: We approached Jacob in forming him that the contract is valid and asked him to get Annex in contact with a CLS Representative. 

Annex and CLS representative were able to chat for a brief moment through a Chat Medium (Skype), in which he made clear that he was not interest in buying out Jacob, hearing that news Annex was willing to talk out options in which Jacob or CLS would not have to buy out the contract. Annex asked to set up a Skype call, the CLS rep politely stated that he was not available to talk on this day, so he subsequently set up a Meeting on Saturday, Dec 20th (Yesterday) at 2 PM CST.
The CLS representative did not appear at the set time.

Now we are at a juncture where Annex is being wrongly accused by the Halo community as a “Shady, Fraud” organization. If any member of the community would like to request screenshots of any skype conversations or a singular recorded call throughout the past week. We are more than happy to make that information public.

Myself and Annex Management understand that Annex is not a prominent organization by any means. We pride ourselves in being professional and transparent. If this situation upsets anyone in the community we apologize for that. If anyone has any questions please ask in a polite manner and we will be more than happy to answer them. 

Due to the fact that Clan Lucky Strike has not gotten back to us, Jacob has been released by Annex effective Immediately . Annex has done nothing but abided to the terms of the contract, due to time and poor communication the situation was blown out of proportion. It is never our intent to stop a player from doing what he/she loves, and that is playing the game. 

On behalf of the entire Annex Managment,

Signed
Sri H. Vakulabharanam

Not sure how this shows players have to be careful. He breached his contract and they released him anyways. Seems like the orgs need to be careful since the community will always side with the player even when they're wrong

I mean in the end it worked out for him. But honestly, he messed up by signing that contract if he wasn't 100% sure of what he was signing or if he didn't intend to honor it. A bigger org may not haven give in so easily and released him - especially if its a more known player. But I agree that the org is the one that got the short end of the stick in this particular situation. It definitely makes the scene less appealing because they are basically investing in these players. Its just something that players need to be aware of.

Ola just retweeted this as well, I hope all is well with Ola he's one of the best people in this community IMO. He was going to give his parent's most of the money from the H4GC if he won, talk about a selfless person.

Tell me if this is right:


 


People can make new teams for HCS cups at any time, but all points from previous HCS events are attached to the teams that earned them, not the players. So, new teams will have poor seedings, but can still compete.

Has Ola ever been dropped from a team (since 09)? I think TD did in 2010 but not sure.

I am not sure if Pistola was so much "dropped" from that team as he did quit because he didn't enjoy playing the game. Afterwards he didn't play anymore CoD so I would say that he just quit playing.

 

Also look what happened to SK's career once he dropped Pistola from tD, still one of the worst decisions ever but as a FB fan one of the best  :)

Wonder what happened with eg cuz. Im not sure this new squad will be able to play clg so tough will have to see though.

Either the Pistola hurt rumors are true, or he's done playing the game as people are speculating. I feel like it must not be the injury--would Lethul really want to quit teams for something that would be temporary when Ola got back?
