    Update: Baby Ignacio told SPIN Life that the problem has already been settled privately by parties involved.

    A FORMER team manager of Nexplay EVOS has broken her silence two months after she departed the organization, to air her experiences with team management during her tenure.

    "Sobra na, I need to speak," said Baby Ignacio in a now-deleted lengthy Facebook post that details allegations of non-payment.

    She went on, "I started working sa Nexplay last September 2019 pa. I resigned October 2021. So almost 2+ years na ako na nagtatrabaho sa kanila. At kanina lang, after sending my clearance almost a month ago, NXP financial employee told me na I will receive ZERO. At kahit sa MPLS8 Regular Season Week 1-4 na pinagtrabahuhan ko, ZERO ang makukuha ko."

    The 28-year-old esports personality, who departed from the team with little fanfare, also alleged that she did not receive any final pay after two years and one month of service.


    Moreover, she also bared the reasons why she left the team, and how the work culture within the organization may have contributed to her departure.

    "I resigned dahil sa MENTAL BREAKDOWN," she explained. "Walang mental or any kind of training na binigay ang NXP sa akin. Sobrang hindi organized. Anraming roles ang hindi na-fifill. Hindi maayos ang pamamalakad. Hindi patas ang trato sa mga lalake at babaeng players. Ayoko yun. Never kong i-totolerate ang ganyan, kahit tanggalin pa nila ako. I fought really hard for my players kahit ikatanggal ko na ang mga ginagawa ko."

      Ignacio also apologized to the former players under her watch. "Sa mga previous talents naman ng NXP na nag-PM din sakin at umalis sila dahil walang napala sa pagiging NXP talent, I’m so sorry wala ako magawa sa talent side," she wrote. "Pero naka-close ko kayo. Naintindihan ko kayo. At alam kong di kayo naalagaan ng maayos."

      In terms of official announcements, NXP has so far announced the departure of Yawi, one of their big three players alongside John Paul "H2wo" Salonga and Renejay "RENEJAY" Barcarse.

      In addition, analyst Neil “Midnight” de Guzman has also left his role as team analyst for the upcoming MPL-PH season 9.

      Ignacio finally left a message for the growing local esports community.

      "PLEASE DON’T DO THIS TO YOUR EMPLOYEES/PLAYERS/TALENTS. Maawa kayo.Don’t let your employees’ mental health suffer para lang sa kapakanan ng kumpanya niyo. Don’t hire too much people if you can’t take care of them."
