Wonder if he'll have to actually work for a living now?

He made just over $8,000 last year through tournaments, a real job might be better for him.

How would that look on his resume? "I got fired from videogames for throwing tantrums"

That asshole had it coming.

Never heard of the guy, or the group he was let go from. I am guessing that he was a part of the professional gaming world. I have met a few pro gamers before. .. they are all shady double bags. Just saying.

Good player, anyone who snatches him up wont regret it. But they might want to buy him a leash.

At the end of the day, he'll get picked up by another team. His release is the biggest news in eSports right now, and whichever team picks him up next will get a lot of media attention and then become a direct competitor to EG. By all reports, Greg is a nice person in person, and does need some counseling. I am of the firm belief that everyone deserves a second chance. I sincerely hope that he manages to work through his issues and becomes a pillar of the community, and be a great example. He deserves another chance, but only one.
