Gaming Paradise in shambles *
According to numerous people on-site, organizers had not paid for the equipment, venue and hotel expenses, and players' passports are being held by the police.
Earlier today a scandal started coming to light, as apparently all the equipment Gaming Paradise organizers used has not been paid for, same as hotel expenses for players and managers and the venue.
All the production equipment has been confiscated by the renting company, yet all the computers are still there and it looks like the rest of the tournament will be played out anyway to figure out prize money distribution.
Players passports are being held by the police due to hotel and food not being paid. Obviously causes issues with dubai #JustCaster— Toby Dawson (@TobiWanDOTA) September 8, 2015
As of now players and managers are in talks with The Gaming Resorts CEO to draft new contracts and make sure the tournament is played out in the end.
Whether or not it will be streamed is yet to be determined, but players now face an entirely different issue, as police are holding all passports due to hotel expenses being unpaid.
To add insult to injury, three of the Titan players are reportedly "very ill" and are in need of medical treatment, which naturally causes issues with their trip to Dubai, which was originally scheduled for tomorrow.
Stay tuned to HLTV.org as more information on the entire scandal is coming by the minute and we will keep updating this post.
