Contract disputes and violations are a familiar experience for Dota pros.

Poking fun at the controversy surrounding the contract dispute between Turner “Tfue” Tenney and FaZe Clan, Dota 2 content creator Jake “SirActionSlacks” Kanner has taken to Twitter to post a brutally honest takedown of the professional Dota scene.

It’s true that Dota players have had trouble understanding their contracts in the past. Just last year, Du “Monet” Peng attempted to dissolve his contract with LGD.Forever Young, citing a clause that he believed would allow him to do so at will. When LGD denied his request, Monet threatened legal action before leaving the team to join Royal Never Give Up.

SirActionSlacks himself is no stranger to confusion regarding forms and contracts. On his podcast, he infamously described the story behind his involvement in The International 2016, when he was fooled into filling out an “information sheet” that was actually an application to work the event as an interviewer.

A considerable amount of money is hanging in the balance as a result of Tfue’s lawsuit, and the potential exploitation of esports competitors is a serious issue. But SirActionSlacks’ humorous message is a reminder that contractual disputes are nothing new within the world of esports—and that he has stayed abreast of the issues that matter most to the esports community at large.
