As you can see in the email above, it was sent from DG Gaming on February 18. The email said that they were having a small delay and players will receive their prize money before March 15.

However, it is March 18 today and no player has received anything yet. The man named Zuko has disappeared and gave zero response to the matter. Not only players but the casters and admins who participated in the tournament were also not paid. Even players and teams who have been sponsored by DG Gaming in the past also revealed about not receiving their dues.

Up until this point, it is likely that players won't be able to get their money from DG Gaming. Esports is a really big juicy pie that everyone wants a bite of it. That why some would just jump in without any experience, knowledge and blow it after a while. This is not first the first time an incident like this happened and it won't be the last as esports is growing in India. But it is important for the community to stay wise and aware of things like this in the future.
