poizon signs with Windigo amid contractual dispute with Bpro

Windigo have signed the young Bulgarian player Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev despite Bpro laying claim that the player is bound to their organization.

On the night of October 24 poizon tweeted he would no longer play for Bpro and was immediately linked to a possible move to Windigo. The Ukrainian organization's CEO, Maksym Bednarskyi, then tweeted an offer had been made to Bpro but no agreement was reached between the two sides.

poizon's signing could lead to a contractual dispute with Bpro

As the rumours of Windigo's interest spread, Bpro's CEO Alexander Gerenski made a statement to HLTV.org saying that the player was to remain put unless the two organizations could strike a deal.

Having been benched from his team, poizon then claimed to unilaterally break the contract with Bpro, prompting Gerenski to once again say that the player would still be bound by the contract as "he is not allowed to play or represent any other organization until October of 2019, and failure to comply with these terms will result in legal proceedings."

"On behalf of BPro Gaming I would like to inform you that Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev’s contract with our organisation is valid until October 2019." Gerenski told HLTV.org

"Windigo Gaming's offer and its terms are not acceptable and explicitly rejected by us. Considering the preceding, any relationships with our player will be considered illegal and qualified player poaching. Maksym Bednarskyi’s statement that poizon doesn’t have any legal obligations is completely false."

Bendnarskyi has now sent out a tweet welcoming poizon and stating that an official announcement would be made soon despite Bpro's recent claims of contractual rights over the young Bulgarian player.

bulgaria and contract disputes
2018-10-26 14:41
will be interesting to see if these contracts have any power behind them. I dont think bpro will just bend over and take it up the ass, bring on the lawyers.
2018-10-26 15:01
"poizon's singing could lead to a contractual dispute with Bpro" singing? lol
2018-10-26 15:10
who signs with who amid contractual dispute with who?
2018-10-26 15:12
Apparently when @GuunaR cannot buy a player he steals it. @poizonCSGO stated that he is leaving and signed for Windigo within 24 hours while breaching his contract. This is well planned and organized theft of a player by @WindigoGG twitter.com/Bpro_gaming/status/105579754..
2018-10-26 15:13
Theft of a player? First he is benched, secondly not much u xan do if the player wants to leave, he is going to leave.
2018-10-26 15:26
Xan do = xans = you lil pump?

Holy shit let's get Tom Brady to join the 49ers cause he wants to then.
2018-10-26 16:31
if you have valid contract, you can do actually a lot...just take this to the court lol
2018-10-26 17:53
Im only knowledgeable about these things in the us. It will be a little different since hes in a very different country but if they dont just release him im sure a fine will be involved
2018-10-26 18:01
well yea, different countries have different laws but the principles are more or less the same...
2018-10-26 18:13
They want to bench him and hold him hostage they can fck themselves imo. And its not poaching if the PLAYER voided his contract before signing.

But what does it matter that he signs a new agreement? Why even take photos of it? He can apparently just walk away anyways? What a spoiled little shit kid. Read the contract before signing.
2018-10-26 15:36
Hes not to blame believe me
2018-10-26 16:17
So Windigo forced him to breach his contract with Bpro? What did they do, hold him at gunpoint?
2018-10-26 16:33
Denmark pistolen
OFC he is. He was never forced to sign anything. And he would be completely moron if he didn't read what he'd sign. He is a douche bag and definently the one to blame. I hope this team will be shit tbh.

Read this first: hltv.org/news/25188/poizon-announces-bpr.. When poizon became a part of Bpro, he was a casual player. But become something bigger...
2018-10-26 17:48

So what? One wrong saying in a heated public case is not enough to conclude that it is fair to break the contract. It's still a contract and he is acting like a kid. I really hope they take legal matters and sue his ass cuz this shit is bad for the sport.
2018-10-27 10:21
when ur from denmark and u dont know whats going on and reading stupid hltv articles better if u shut up and listen eh?

You mean they are doing pretty much the same like Windigo did to their player Spellan who is on the bench for eternity
2018-10-26 19:50
who the fuck would bench spellan and keep pNshr on the roster tho, that seems so stupid either -pnshr +spellan and let poizon stay in bpro OR -pnshr +poizon and release spellan
2018-10-27 00:00
They benched him cuz he said that he wont be playing for bpro anymore
2018-10-26 21:28

So Bpro cannot strike a deal with another org for a player who said he isn’t going to play for Bpro anymore? Sounds like a shitty and/or delusional negotiator has been over this. Either Bpro doesn’t pay salaries, or they are doing this out of pride.

looks like their player already planned to jump ship and didn`t care whether there is a deal or not what deal are you talking about
