INTZ, on the other hand, didn’t reveal her departure from the group. She reportedly submitted a lawsuit versus the group on May 26.
Mayumi was signed at the exact same time as Tainá “Yatsu” Santos in August 2019 when she was 17 years old. She just played cope with INTZ in the ABCDE Super League at the end of 2019.
Her play throughout a video game as Nautilus support went viral. Highlights of her private efficiency surpassed 13,000 likes and 800 comments on Chinese social media site Weibo. She was ranked Challenger when INTZ signed her and expected to compete with the group in the nationwide league.

Mayumi’s legal representative declared in the claim that her function on the team altered from contending to marketing around mid-February. She reportedly felt in this manner because she was no longer being called in for scrims or getting counsel from the team’s coach.
Mayumi supposedly no longer had a desk or computer at INTZ’s video gaming home and was excluded from group meetings. This resulted in numerous weeks of inactivity. She reported that she didn’t get an answer from the staff when she reached out to voice her issues.
Her lawyer likewise said her contract was in fact only utilized to “optimize its own earning by exploiting her image” and to “turn her into a poster lady.” This apparently resulted in her not participating in training sessions and made her feel “humiliated” by being “just required marketing actions, since of her gender or age.”

Brazilian Dota 2 group DISCOMFORT Video gaming was condemned on the same legal grounds last month.
As a result, Mayumi and her attorney are pursuing the cancellation of INTZ’s contract and the payment of financial compensation for the months she worked without being signed up as an INTZ gamer and was, for that reason, paid less, in addition to discontinuance wage and indemnity for ethical harassment. If the agreement is thought about valid, they claim the payment of the legal termination fee to be the employer’s fault.
A hearing has actually been set up for July 21. INTZ stated all legal commitments were fulfilled and it had the intent of putting Mayumi in matches in the second stage of the 2020 CBLoL, which began on June 6.
Mayumi told START she won’t discuss the circumstance till the juridical act has ended.
