According to Dexerto, In December 2021, SumaiL filed a lawsuit against EG over a contract he signed with the organization in 2016, shortly after winning The International 2015 – one of the biggest accomplishments in Dota 2 esports. At the time, SumaiL was considered one of the best players in the world. SumaiL’s lawyers claimed that EG “took advantage of a young, naïve and vulnerable” player during his time with the organization, alleging that the team pushed “draconian obligations and forfeitures” during negotiations for his release from the Dota 2 team in 2020.
