20 years-old Turkish VALORANT Erdem “Toronto” Soğukpınar made a long statement about the allegations made against him on his official Twitter account.
First of all, hello everyone.Erdem “Toronto” Soğukpınar
I have been silent for a long time and did not give any explanation, first of all, I apologize to all of you for this silence, I was trying to understand the situation and resolve it through justice, but I think it’s time to make a statement. With each passing day, something is added to the claims without looking either right or wrong, and it continues to harm me more and more every day.
First of all, I wanted to state that my leaving OXG has nothing to do with these issues.
Since these allegations first came out, I have tried to exchange ideas with club owners, managers, players, lawyers, everyone and try to understand the event and explain it here as well as possible. And legally, I constantly researched the situation and went after it because waiting for it to be resolved silently does me more harm than good every day. I can help you by explaining all the details of what I’ve been through and what I know, wherever necessary.
I tried to do it and I hope I succeeded. I applied to the Office of the Chief Public Prosecutor with a petition to find out if there are any investigations, secret investigations or lawsuits filed against me at the moment, and I gathered all the documents I could. There is no case-file about me, but as I stated below, I did not give up on the subject, and I will continue to do everything I can.
The reason why I waited until the events were resolved and I took part in the last tournament with NOM Esports was that I had so much success at the age of 20, and I did not want to end with a bad ending like in the last tournament because I still think that I am at the very beginning of everything in this field of “esports”, where I sacrificed my school, family, social life for more than 20 hours a day. I am very ambitious and all I want is to achieve my goals in this career that I have scraped with my nails from the beginning. Don’t think that I’m backed out by making this statement.
Thank you for reading this far.
