I'm in a process of getting original ticket cost fully refunded from Simon himself, and I'm thankful that he made the decision right away. Due to technical difficulties, process will be finished before 10/4/2013. In detail, the payment will be made in total of two transactions, one with $999 which already happened as of 10/3/2013, and rest tomorrow.
Edit: As of Oct 6, 2013, 01:12:58 PDT, last payment is received and Simon has fully refunded the ticket which was problematic. For the last time, thank you so much. I wouldn't have received a cent without support from the crowd.
Following is a joint release from myself, Simon, and Quantic on behalf of this incident:
As some may already be aware, an unfortunate miscommunication involving the departure of Harry “MaSsan” Cheong resulted in a misunderstanding. Since the incident occurred, we have been in constant contact with MaSsan. We are currently in the process of resolving the financial aspects of this matter to ensure that all parties involved are taken care of properly. We have always put an emphasis on taking care of our players, especially in the event of a misunderstanding. We have enjoyed having MaSsan as part of Quantic Gaming, and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
Quantic's Simon Boudreault, said "MaSsan and I have been friends for a long time; he even lived with me for a number of months. Obviously, I wish cooler heads had prevailed, but I am making sure the situation is being fully resolved. Because of our friendship, I harbor no ill feelings toward MaSsan. I am not perfect, and when friends get upset with one another, things can become emotional. I’m sorry that I allowed that to happen".
MaSan said “I’m very sorry to Simon’s family to be even mentioned in this matter. I’m very thankful for my stay, and I do not mean any harm to them or Quantic over this. In fact, I do want them to thrive in their paths. I really appreciate my supporters on this incident, and I hope you continue supporting Quantic and myself. I really enjoyed being in Quantic, and wish that amazing players like HwangSin and Hyun will continue their success along with Quantic.”
Professionalism is important to Quantic and we realize the handling of this matter was less than professional. We want to re-affirm our commitment to the community that we will make every effort possible to act professionally in the future. We express our sincerest apologies for what has unfortunately occurred.
