Update (10.08.2019): Happy wurde das Preisgeld nun vollständig ausgezahlt.
Some good news afterall : @mymTw_official paid me for mTw Legendary Cup. Got my money in full.
Really sad that it all had to be made loud on public, so i could finally get paid.

Update#2 (11.08.2019): mTw gab gegenüber readmore.de ein Statement zu den Vorfällen ab.
„The last days have been quite a rollercoaster. Due to very bad planning ourselves, relying on promises by other people that never came through and our inability to attract any sponsorship deal during the lasts months, we caused a situation that we actually wanted to avoid given mTw’s history and its impact on trust in eSport and WarCraft 3.
We deeply apologize for the empty and misleading promises that we made, especially since a lot of people put their hope and enthusiasm into our uprising team and project. We can only assure that we will work hard behind the scenes, to work out payment plans and solutions for all outstanding obligations, as we do love eSport, WarCraft 3 and failed to match our own ambitions and therefore, hurt and disappointed everyone following us, the games and the whole scene. First steps were made (started a communication about this issue with everyone involved, payed first participants in our tournaments, e.g. Happy, started a payment plan with Back2WarCraft), but there is more to follow, more to solve, and were are working towards that goal…
Things like this should never happen again, as eSport is still a place where people start working, playing and creating something together, purely based on passion, trust and reputation. We will focus on trying to repair the damage done, step by step, as fast as even possible.“
