Twitch star Blaire "QTCinderella" took to Twitter on November 2, 2022, to announce that she's no longer part of Team SoloMid (TSM).
In a five-part Twitter update, the streamer said she was "thrilled at the opportunity" to join the esports organization and had turned down "even more lucrative options."
After jokingly saying that she left TSM after fellow streamer Eric Lamont "Erobb221" Robbins Jr. joined, QTCinderella stated that the decision was "heartbreaking" but was the "right one" for her. She revealed:
"I did still leave TSM though. It was a heartbreaking choice but the right one for me."
QTCinderella claims joining TSM made her realize that one should "never meet your heroes"
QTCinderella shared a screenshot of a recent Reddit comment that detailed her experience as a member of Team SoloMid. She claimed that after joining the American esports organization, she learned that one should never meet their heroes:
"I wanted to explain more here because I am just like all of you. I've loved TSM for years, the only team I've ever cheered for, the only merch I ever bought, and the only games I showed up to. Sadly, after joining, I learned that you should "never meet your heroes."
The Los Angeles-based content creator revealed that "no one cared to support, congratulate, or encourage" her after she created the Streamer Awards and got in touch with TSM:
"When I created the Streamer Awards, TSM was the first group of people I messaged and no one cared. No one cared to support. No one cared to congratulate. No one cared to encourage. This was supposed to be my TEAM. This was the pattern whenever I came up with ideas."
QTCinderella then described a "devastating" experience that served as the "ultimate factor" in her decision to leave TSM. She revealed that she developed a content strategy for the entire organization, which was approved up until the day she was supposed to sign:
"Then when my contract was up for re-negotiation, I came up with an entire content plan for the ENTIRE ORG, that was green-lit until the day I was supposed to sign. It was devastating. But was the ultimate factor that made me decide I needed to walk away."
The Reddit comment concluded with her saying:
"There are a lot of great people at the company now and I do believe they can do something great. But I just really need a TEAM. So I had to choose to leave. I will still be a fan, like the rest of you. And I remain optimistic that TSM can make us all proud again."
