"The eSports industry, and companies like Evil Geniuses, would not be possible without the passion and support of our community. We, as a company, cannot and will not be supportive of anyone who does not show due respect and appreciation for the community that makes everything we do possible," the post stated.

IdrA signed with Evil Geniuses in September 2010 following the expiration of his previous contract with professional gaming organisation CJ Entus.

It is not the first time Evil Geniuses has taken action against its players. French StarCraft II player Ilyes "Stephano" Satouri was temporarily suspended without pay for inappropriate comments made during a live stream in October last year.

Evil Geniuses currently has contracts with teams and players across multiple games including StarCraft II, Dota 2, League of Legends, and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
