Duty pro-player BRAC has challenged the response of the former CDL team, Toronto Ultra, to the concerns raised by the COD community about the treatment of its contracted player.
The Call of Duty rostermania call has made it even more interesting as usual. The inaugural CDL season saw the Dallas win the World Championship with the Empire, before releasing the experienced cluster.
A similar roster has been seen at several companies, including Move Ultra, which fired from Crimsix on social media after releasing six of their ten contracted players.
He Accused The organization of “forcing their entire 10 roster to stay in Toronto amid the epidemic”, as well as “threatening not to pay non-starters when they go home”.
3. Rumor has it that these clowns are looking to win a 50/50 prize from their team next year when they get their due salary. If the prize is split, then the salary must be. This is just the opposite of what they are doing. Most player opposition organizations I’ve seen.

He gave them a brief description of what he saw in competitive sports in his time as “one of the most anti-player organizations”. Understandably, Canadians had public opinion against the agency, but they have now reacted.
In the first of two official updates, Paolo Senra, vice-president of Overactive Media Group, defended the agency’s actions, saying all decisions were made in the best interests of the players.
He added that all players who needed it were compensated, and concluded: “All our decisions were and will continue to be based on the health and safety of our players and our staff.”
The first statement provided to the Canadian Sports Podcast can be seen below:
Following the first statement, Ultra provided another official response centering on BRAC, one of the players at the center of the allegations.
Ultra claimed that they paid him in full when he asked to travel home, as well as “a very generous period to produce adequate medical documentation proving his illness so he could understand when he would return.”
They say they then “cleaned his belongings from his residence before leaving Toronto for a family emergency, indicating to us that he would never return to his work responsibilities.”

The statement concluded: “Given the reluctance to cooperate and a significant amount of sympathetic leave, we could not reasonably pay BRAC’s salary … We believe our behavior has been completely justified – even marked as being generous to BRAC – and we will stand by our behavior and our people.” . “
Toronto Ultra’s full statement:
Over the past few days the Toronto Ultra has been treated with its players and it has been questioned and some complaints have been made that simply do not match the information we know. We are posting this statement to provide our perspective on these false and harmful allegations. We love our players, our fans, our tireless staff and those who care about the Toronto Ultra.
BRAC came to us to return home to stay with his family at a difficult time. We certainly freed him from the obligation of the team to go home on sympathetic leave. We want to make it very clear that we continue to pay BRAC his full salary as sympathetic leave, even though we had no contract or legal obligation to do so, so that he can stay with his loved ones without financial pressure to return. His job.
A few days later he came to us and said that he was sick now and indicated that he would not be able to return to Toronto. We continued to pay him. Finally, we gave him a very generous period of time to prepare adequate medical documentation proving his illness to help us understand when he could return.
We later learned that he had cleaned his belongings from his residence before leaving Toronto for a family emergency, indicating to us that he would never return to his work responsibilities.
Given the reluctance to cooperate and a significant amount of sympathetic leave, we could not reasonably pay BRAC’s salary.
We are a proud organization with great people who really care about our work and each other. It has been a difficult year for everyone. But at some point, an organization has to stand up for itself and protect its people and its reputation. We cannot allow these false statements about the management of the Toronto Ultra to remain unanswered. We believe that our behavior has been perfectly justified – even marked as being generous to BRAC – and we will stand by our behavior and our people.
