The TSMO responded with an official statement outlining that the shadow had not been misused. The organization believes Shadow made false claims because he was benched from the team. Moreover, TSM claims that GODLIKE does not intend to legally lend to Shadow, but seeks to secure him for free by transacting under wraps.
GODLIKE Ghatak took to Twitter a few days ago to ridicule TSM for calling them and not taking legal action to resolve the issue.
Do you want to know what childish sports are like in India right now? An organization is crying on the internet instead of taking proper legal recourse.

Godlike has also issued an official notice in this regard. They claim that Shadow was not tied to TSM when he was signed by GODLIKE. Based on GODLIKE’s official post, Shadow has already sent his closing letter. Therefore, GODLIKE did not need to be informed about the signing of TSM as it is acting as an independent entity.

We are taking action and there will be an update for the Indian gaming community in the future
