eMonkeyz responde a la demanda por despido improcedente y niega los hechos

La respuesta de eMonkeyz a la demanda por despido improcedente efectuada por un exjugador y desvelada por eldiario.es hace dos días acaba de producirse. El club de esports español niega los hechos relatados en dicha pieza periodística, pero ha decidido no realizar “manifestaciones que puedan afectar a la resolución del procedimiento “.

Esa demanda presentada en un juzgado de lo Social de Madrid hacía referencia a una supuesta percepción de un salario inferior al SMI, infracotización a la Seguridad Social, indemnizaciones y vacaciones impagadas y cambios unilaterales en su contrato, además del despido improcedente. Dicha reclamación también ha ido dirigida a la Liga de Videojuegos Profesional, organismo que organiza la competición en la que está presente el club.

eMonkeys: se le abonó al jugador “la totalidad de las cantidades que le pudieran corresponder”

“Las condiciones de los contratos suscritos con los trabajadores de la entidad son siempre consensuados de mutuo acuerdo entre las partes, cumpliendo con la normativa de aplicación, si bien conviene aclarar que debido a la novedad del sector no existe una regulación específica en el ámbito de los eSports”, expone el club en referencia a la modalidad por obra y servicio que se usó en este caso y a la aceptación en primera instancia del jugador.

Sobre la base de la demanda, el despido improcedente, el equipo argumenta lo siguiente: “Finalizada la causa que da origen al contrato, se comunica al jugador la resolución del contrato y se procede a su liquidación en los términos que establece la norma, abonando la totalidad de las cantidades que por todos los conceptos le pudieran corresponder.”

Por último, tampoco se evade uno de los asuntos que trata la noticia, las jornadas laborales por encima de lo regulado: “Resulta absolutamente falso que los jugadores excedan las jornadas laborales que le pudieran corresponder”. Desde Xataka Esports seguimos sin respuesta desde el propio jugador, por lo que ahora es el turno de los estamentos judiciales para dictaminar sentencia.

Since Epic introduced the massive Fortnite esports pool, the company has tried a wide variety of different formats for events. 

The Summer Skirmish lasted eight weeks and each week changed the format a little bit. The Fall Skirmish had people sorted into four different groups and then duos took home the final grand prize.

Right now we are in the midst of ShareTheLove division play, another interesting competitive format that Fortnite hasn’t seen before.

This has all be leading to the Fortnite World Cup. Most players expect that to be the most massive Fortnite event to date.

While we have no idea what the format for the World Cup will be, Fortnite fans and Epic Games itself is still searching for the best way to hold competitive Fortnite events.

One format that may be the best possible option is a Fortnite League. The structure would be similar to how the H1Z1 Pro League operated, without the visa issues and lack of a player base.

The best comparison to traditional sports is racing like NASCAR or F1. Basically, players would compete week after week with the results being tallied on a cumulative scoreboard. This helps prevent RNG by playing the most possible matches. The more matches played, the more chance the best player comes out on top.

The H1Z1 Pro League’s scoring was based around kills. Each kill was worth one point and the placement of the squad added a multiplier to their kill total. It worked like this:

1st: x2

2-5: x1.5

6-10: x1.25

11-15: no multiplier

They dropped in the same 60 people game after game and eventually, some squads took a lead. Right now, most Fortnite events have used a “shelf” system which awards extra points for reaching a certain number of kills or placement. While those shelves do exist in H1Z1 in placement, having the multiplier means the decision of whether to rush an opponent or not becomes more complex.

Fortnite could adopt the same system. Each week squads, duos or solos could drop into events and through the consistent competition, rivalries would develop between players and the hype would build as they neared the end of the season.

This would also provide a more clear structure for esports organizations, pro-Fortnite players and consistent fans. Many esports are moving towards competitive structures more similar to traditional sports and Fortnite could be next.

Would you watch a Fortnite League that uses this structure? Or do you like the current unpredictable state of competitive Fortnite?
