Sid Shuts Down Allegations of Payment Issues in S8UL Esports
S8UL Esports Manager Siddhant “Sid” Joshi recently denied accusations of not paying its players and challenged to name a single person from S8UL’s Esports division who has not been paid. He clarified that while the Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) esports division is currently not receiving salaries due to a suspension of the game, the organization’s players for other titles are receiving their pay. Additionally, Sid claimed that the salary earned by S8UL Esports’ BGMI players after winning the BGMI Pro Series (BMPS) was one of the highest figures in the entire industry.
Sid shuts down allegations of payment issues in S8UL Esports
In a recent livestream, a viewer told Sid that S8UL Esports may not be paying its players after hiring them. The exact words were, “Hey, Sid. Don’t play a stooge for an unpleasant business phase for S8UL. If you are not paying good after hiring anyone, and think that your org’s namesake would get their life settled, then think again.”
Sid refuted the claims and asked the viewer to name a single person from the esports division of S8UL who was not paid. He then stated that everyone from the organization is getting paid but also acknowledged that the BGMI esports division is currently not receiving salaries due to a suspension of the game. “Who is there, in S8UL, you think, to whom we don’t pay? From our esports division. Is there anyone in S8UL to whom we don’t pay? Our New State players are getting their salaries. Our Pokémon Unite players are also getting their pay. BGMI esports is on halt, so they are not getting salaries. Do you think you seem cool when you write ‘stooges’ and all?” he said.
Sid clarified that S8UL Esports’ players are getting a salary, and content creators do not get a salary in any organization. “Who in S8UL is not getting any salary? The one who should get a salary and is not getting any. The rest are content creators, and there is no meaning in paying salaries to content creators in any organization. Then who is it?” he said.
Sid further asked whether the viewer believed S8UL Esports’ video editor Adi was not getting paid and questioned how he would be able to afford basic necessities like food if he wasn’t being paid. “Do you guys think Adi is not getting paid? Is Adi working here for free, just for exposure? So, how does he buy his food? Why do you comment, ‘you should pay them, not just the namesake.’ Who is it?” he said.
Additionally, Sid also claimed that the salary earned by S8UL Esports’ BGMI players after winning the BMPS was one of the highest figures in the entire industry.
S8UL Esports is one of the most successful esports organizations in India, boasting rosters in BGMI, Pokemon Unite, and New State Mobile. However, its operations are not only limited to competitive esports; it is one of the most successful content creation organizations in India as well. It has also won the “Content Group of the Year” award at the prestigious stage of Esports Awards 2022.
