Time to call some more people out. Today we share the news of our experience with Revoland, a gaming company that offered to sponsor a tournament for our guild. The company promised a $5000 USD prize pool and we eagerly agreed to host the event, excited to provide our members with a thrilling gaming experience and a chance to win some serious cash.
The tournament was scheduled to take place over several weeks and our guild put in a lot of hard work to make it a success. We reached out to players, promoted the event on social media, and made sure everything was ready to go. We even had some great matches and saw some incredible gameplay from our members.
However, after two weeks of running the tournament, Revoland abruptly canceled the event. They blamed their 3rd party tournament partner, 2Easy, for the cancellation, claiming that they had not provided the necessary support and services to run the tournament successfully. 2Easy for their part refute this and say they were never paid for the services. This came as a huge shock to us, as we had not encountered any issues during the first two weeks of the tournament.
We tried to reach out to Revoland to understand the situation and see if there was any way to continue the tournament, but we were met with silence. Eventually, we were blocked by the company, and all communication ceased.
Unfortunately, it seems that our experience with Revoland is not unique. We have heard reports of other gaming companies and guilds who have had similar issues with this company. In fact, we learned not long after that, an Indonesian company, SyntaxQ had to take legal action against Revoland to get their issue resolved.
At the time of Revoland’s cancellation of our tournament, our guild, TAGInk, was left in a difficult position. We had invested a significant amount of time and resources into organizing the event, and the sudden cancellation left us in a precarious financial situation. However, pursuing legal action against Revoland was not an option for us at the time. As a small gaming guild, we did not have the funds or resources to take on a legal battle with a larger company. We had to accept the loss and move on, while also sharing our experience with the gaming community to warn others of Revoland’s unethical behavior.
It is clear that Revoland has no regard for the gaming community or for their reputation. They seem to be only interested in making a quick profit and then moving on to the next victim. We strongly advise against investing any money or resources into this company, and we urge other gaming guilds to be cautious when considering any partnerships or sponsorships with Revoland.
In conclusion, we want to express our disappointment and frustration with Revoland for their unethical behavior. We hope that other gaming guilds will learn from our experience and be cautious when considering sponsorship from this company. We also hope that the gaming community will take notice of this situation and demand better from gaming companies. It is time to hold them accountable for their actions and ensure that they are truly dedicated to supporting the gaming community.
