TNC Predator has just revealed that they are yet to receive over $150,000 in prize winnings from the China Top 2017, a tournament organized by the General Administration of Sport of China in November 2017.

TNC Predator won the China Top 2017 beating out teams like Digital Chaos, VGJ.Thunder and Invictus Gaming to win ¥1,000,000 / $151,935 in prize winnings.

The organization posted on Reddit stating that:

“Last November of 2017, we were invited to play in China TOP 2017 and we are thankful to the organizers for giving us the opportunity to compete in their tournament.

Since then, after being the champion in the said tournament, we could hardly hear from them with regard to our won prize. As for our end, we did and furnished them all the necessary details and documents needed to eased the settlement, and yet, our claims remain unsettled.

We are appealing to the organizer to settle our claim and we are also asking for understanding in using the social media to address the issue, but there is no longer person, directly in charge to reach out to.

-TNC Management”

After the post was made, former pro player Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho also confirmed that his team, ‘Digital Chaos’ which also competed in China TOP 2017 has also not received the prize winnings.

Later, Complexity’s manage Kyle "Beef" Bautista, also chipped in stating that:

With other Chinese non-DPC tournaments like World Cyber Games on the horizon, it will be interesting to see how the situation develops and whether TNC Predator and the other teams receive the money they’re owed, promptly.
