EternaLEnVy discloses Secrets

Dota 2 Andreea “divushka” Esanu

Another drama cloud is hovering over the Team Secret name as EternaLEnVy reveals in a blog post made earlier today, Team Secret’s shady business, payments delays and the dark side of his former captain, Puppey.

A bit over six months after Secret’s management was firstly called out by Evany Chang for delayed payments to their players, Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao makes a rather long blog post in which he is disclosing the same issues and a bit more.

A Secret Story” by EternaLEnVy talks about the organization still owning him money, unpaid salaries for months, percentages cuts that were never discussed, unfulfilled streaming deals with Panda TV and ends with a hefty part entirely dedicated to a very dark face of Clement 'Puppey' Ivanov.

Backing up his accusations with screenshots from his conversations with both Puppey (owner of Team Secret) and Kemal Sadikoglu (Director of Team Secret), Envy walks us through his entire stay at Team Secret, from the very first days of negotiations, even before joining the team, up to the post TI6 shuffle, when his new team was supposed to be an NA squad of Secret.

What is striking, after going through the entire blog post several times, is that in their conversations actual player contract terms never come up.

Moving on from the sponsorship and money issues, EnVy reserves a large part in his blog to the $1.25M + $250,000 in Donations “PandaTV deal”, where Puppey and Areezy should have had to stream on the Chinese platform a minimum of 30 hours per month and EnVy 60 hours per month. According to his statements the deal went off after Puppey failed to accomplish his part. “Noticed that not only did Puppey not uphold his end of the deal, but he didn’t even try. Streaming not 30 hours a month as promised but 12 hours in 3 months” EnVy says in his blog.

Towards the end of his post, EnVy describes Puppey as an “egotistical and aggressive” person, with real anger management problems, who gave up practice hours and did not show for scheduled scrims during TI6 in favor of drinking nights. He is depicted as bullying his players, with alleged discussions between Puppey and w33 that would often end up with Secret’s captain yelling “do you want to fight?”, “If you guys want to talk about who's right or who's wrong, why don’t we fight.”, or with broken keyboards.

Although his only proof for what he describes about Puppey would be his teammates’ word, EnVy reveals at the end of the post a short video for which he was threatened to be kicked out of Secret if he made it public. “ He [Puppey] told me that if I ever leaked the video he’ll kick me from Secret. Well, I’m not part of Secret anymore. “

According to the same post made by EnVy, Misery will be the next ex-Secret player to bring into the lights the issues he faced with the team.

[update]Rasmus 'MiSeRy' Filipsen posted his version of the story in which he is backing up EnVy on the delayed payments and you can read the entire blog post here.

    envy is sick guy

    If this stuff is true, and the video is rather strong evidence, then this paints a rather disturbing picture of someone who was once my favorite dota 2 player. RIP my love for Puppey. :( Players being cheated out of their money is wrong. Being always in command is one thing, but threatening violence when subordinates disagree is an entirely different thing. Etc etc etc.

    Also, did anyone notice that the reason for what little money they did get, at least according to EE (who, being the protagonist of his own story, may be unreliable, but the current evidence supports his case), was from a sponsor he himself got for the team, rather than the organization getting said sponsorship? And, looking at the numbers, he delivered on his part of the contract (averaging over 60 hours/month in the 3-month period), despite it requiring him to spend at least two hours a day on stream? And that by offering 60 hours himself and 30 for the other two 'main' players for the contract, he was already pulling double the weight? Yet he only gets $24k out of $312.5k? /sadface

      Actually, at the end of the post, he said that he gave Misery/w33 around $29000, which left him with a net loss of $5000 for the entire time he spent with Secret. Sad, really :/
  • Mike "MikeXray" Xray ,
    Link to Envy's blog desn't work for me. Is it me or did russian hackers try to save puppey's face? ^^ No seriously, can someone provide a functioning link?

  • Pradeep "buzzer_mad" Gupta ,
    As per the post by EE, with all those logs as evidences, it is utter bullshit by puppey. It's an eye-opener for a guy like me who once supported Secret cause of its captain. RIP SEAcret. I hope u pay for all these shady stuffs you are doing in the scene of the game which we all love. MP, MidOne and Forev - do have a proper contract before working with this guy puppey. Insane.
