  • A senior representative from OG reached out to AFK Gaming to provide additional clarification about the EWA claiming to be partnered with OG.
  • Screenshots provided to us by OG suggest that EWA had posted a manipulated version of the same email in its statement.
  • The EWA has also removed a number of elements from its website including the partners tab and a link to its press statement.

Shortly after we published an article about accusations made by various individuals against the Esports World Academy (EWA) and its allegedly false partnerships with OG Esports (OG) and Gen.G Esports, a representative from OG reached out to AFK Gaming to provide additional clarification.

OG sent us a screenshot of an email which suggests that the Esports World Academy had posted a manipulated version of the same email in its statement. 

Here is the screenshot that was sent to us by OG:

OG's Screenshot of the Email Sent to EWA


Here is the screenshot that was included by EWA in its official statement:


Going by the screenshot provided by OG, it would seem that the organization had not given any permission to EWA for use of OG’s logos on its website. 

EWA has allegedly doctored the email to include this sentence:

“We always love a bigger fan base. Use our logo and send fans our way.”


After the reports about EWA were published on our website, the following incidents have taken place:

  • EWA removed OG Esports and Gen.G Esports as partners listed on its website.
  • Shortly after, the website also took down the 'Partners' tab along with the link to its press statement.

We have reached out to EWA for comments.
