Official statement regarding prize money
Over the last 12 years the ESL has paid out over $12,000,000 in prize money. Historically, there have been issues with some prize money being paid late. We have worked hard to eradicate these issues over the last 18 months and are now working on the final, remaining backlog of overdue prizes. We can announce today that this process will be completed by the end of February and there will be no overdue prize money at that point.
If you or your team have not been paid prize money by then, please use our ticketing system available here: http://www.esl.eu/eu/prizemoney

We apologise for any inconvenience you may have gone through during this period.

We are taking this topic extremely seriously and to address any further concerns our CEO Ralf Reichert will conduct a Reddit AMA about this topic early next week.

good move ESL
AMA in which subreddit?
I guess in the AMA subreddit, as it will be relevant to many different subreddits. We'll announce the exact place/time via ESL news before hand.
Good :>
As manager of Team Synthesis I have to state that the above post made by user "SynthesisLeague" in no way represents Team Synthesis' real intentions or requests.
While people blaming ESL for their (mostly 1-2 month, big deal) payment delays Id like to thank them for maintaining competitive esports presence in Europe for such long time. Blame all you want, but there was no company that made so much for european scene. Thank you.

In a lot of the cases it's been half of a year or even a whole year, the comments really shocked me. I'm glad this is being resolved tho, I'm just sad that it had to be done this way.
Will you also pay the money from the last ems season until the end of feb.?

Looking at your profile, I assume you are talking about the EMS Winter 2012 in Crossfire? The final was played in December, so the payment is due 3 months after that, next month. We expect to pay it punctual.
YAY, I got my money after long two years :), well done ESL
