    M2K Unplugs his Relationship with EMP
    Empire Arcadia (EMP) has announced that the famed Melee player and "Smash God" Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman will no longer be playing under EMP until further notice on Twitter today. @Mew2King followed shortly after and confirmed the split by releasing a statement (below). He specifies that it was his decision to leave EMP due to owed back income and having loaned more than $1,000 USD to the organization. The split with EMP follows just months after Mew2King left P4K due to an alleged failure to pay any amount per contract terms. Mew2King used both the P4K and EMP tag through the summer of Smash, including at EVO, MLG, and CEO. Earlier this year Mew2King also left the team Clash Tournaments.


    The owner of Empire Arcadia Issaiah "Triforce" Johnson included with this announcement that this would last indefinitely until issues concerning back pay and money owed were taken care of due to them acquiring a new monetary partner in Cyberbox who will be helping to negotiate terms to bring M2K back to the team as well.


    Unfortunately this is not the first time EMP has been known for possible issues involving paying sponsored players on time including incidents with NuckleDu, Tampa Bison, and Smash's own Armada. With Apex around the corner it will be interesting to see if any large sponsors want to add M2K to their roster.

    @Mew2King released a statement regarding the split, where he indicates that the failure of EMP to pay in a timely manner and pay the full, agreed upon amount was the reason he left.

    SmashCapps can only imagine what being sponsored is like. Follow him on Twitter and discuss this interesting news!

    M2K please. Make the right choice. With your popularity, you could honestly afford a much better sponsor. We all make mistakes, please learn from their shady history.

    He could get waaaay better sponsors if he bailed on EMP. Either way, this'll be interesting.

    Nice and confusing the way they title M2K as a "Smash God" when Smash God is an actual player. I thought it was about both of them for a minute.

    M2K should go the NASCAR route and get a bunch a not-game-related sponsors plastered to his jersey.

    Dunkin' Donuts * Shake Weight * Rogaine * Cover Girl - M2K has a certain ring to it.

    The same crap keeps happening to him, unfortunately. He got screwed by Play4Keeps as well during October with pay, if I remember correctly

    Good to see one of the greatest players of all time is no longer signed to play for one of the least professional "sponsors" of all time.

    M2K should get sponsored by me. I'll pay him if he starts entering PM brackets with Roy 24/7, and Melee locals with Roy more often.

    Mew2King? Oh, he's not important. He's only considered to be the world's greatest smash player of all time.

    Aside from isai, of course.

    I'm sure M2K wants his pay, but at the same time... at what costs? Sounds like it might be time to just take losses and go to a better team. IMO.

    M2K I know you are not going to be reading this but you should definitely go. You would get a so much better sponsor if you left.

    In response to the delayed payment, M2K has demanded seven additional sponsorships.

    He did kind of had a spotty repute before 2013 because he used to split and also was kind of irritable. He's improved a lot though, not only as a player but as a person.

    C9 Liquid` Alliance VGBC |SS| CLG TSM PL MVG | Mew2King sounds promising ^_^

    It's like they think getting suspended from EMP is an actual punishment.

    For real though, if EMP is actually getting it's **** together (Don't get your hopes up), then good on 'em. Otherwise, M2K, you can do better.

    Regardless of any of this, what exactly do you guys think about this? Do you think M2K's gonna leave EMP for good or they're gonna win him back somehow? I'm more hopeful towards him leaving.
