Qudans Claims To Not Have Received $60,000 Payout from True Gaming Invitational in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

By on July 29, 2020

Pro Tekken player, Qudans, has claimed that he has not received his payout from the True Gaming Tekken Invitational at Gamerscon.

The True Gaming Invitational was a tournament held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on March 28-29, 2019 with a prize pool of $110,000 USD. Qudans won the first place prize of $60,000 USD. The rest of the top 8 payouts were as follows:

  • 2nd – Chanel – $25,000
  • 3rd – Knee – $10,000
  • 4th – Sora – $6,000
  • 5th – CallMeNoob – $3,000
  • 5th – Madwolf – $3,000
  • 7th – Ghassan – $1,500
  • 7th – Arslan Ash – $1,500

Qudans tweeted on July 29, 2020 that he still hasn’t received the prize money for the whole year and some months since the conclusion of the tournament. He expressed the demotivating feelings of having to train so hard and end up in this situation. He stated that he sees this as a hindrance for the growth of esports and hopes the situation is resolved soon.

Qudans statements are as follows


According to Tekken Master, none of the players involved in any tournament (MK11, Tekken, Smash, Rocket League, etc.) were paid at all from this tournament.


True Gaming seems to be placing the responsibility of the payout to a company called the Khayal Company, who organizes exhibitions and conferences. True Gaming has made an official statement that is Google translated below:

Most importantly, True Gaming would like to assure the community that it has and always go above and beyond for the gaming community and all of its citizens, but for this case in specificity the responsibility ends by sending the winners list to the organizing company, Khayal , who are entirely responsible for handling all post-event duties which includes the distribution of the prizes to the winners. True Gaming is in no way responsible for anything aside from operating the competitions as per our written agreements with Khayal.


We hope that True Gaming or Khayal Company can resolve this issue to pay what is due to the players that promote their tournament.
