CE-Oh no

Simon Boudreault is the 23-year-old CEO of the Quantic Gaming eSports team, and he owes a lot of people some money The Daily Dot reports. For starters, pro StarCraft II player Ko Hyun has been owed $23,000 in salary and prize money for months now. What's more, numerous people on the Quantic Gaming staff are owed thousands of dollars as well. Upwards to $40,000 is owed to numerous employees.

Simon has dropped off the map since December 17, and no one knows where he is. Shortly before disappearing Simon told people he was going for a biopsy on a lump on his lung. Simon has disappeared for weeks at a time before with no explanation, but this time people aren't expecting him back at all.

The entire situation is downright sad, and Daily Dot's report sheds a lot of light on how things work behind the scenes with the ever growing field of eSports.
