While streaming on Twitch, One True King (OTK) veteran Emiru announced some upcoming shifts inside the player group. It has been a hard time for the OTK organization, prompting the prominent streamer to make an announcement during her live show.
This is the first time Emiru has spoken publicly about the scandal surrounding the expulsion of a colleague, and OTK member Rich Campbell after allegations of sexual assault. Since 2020, Rich has been a co-founder and founding member of OTK; therefore, his accusations have shocked many of the group’s supporters. After Rich’s departure from OTK was finalized on December 16, a message was sent through OTK’s official Twitter account. Rich posted from his personal account that he would explain his side of the tale soon, but he has not done so as of this writing.
In her Twitch show, Emiru hinted that positive improvements were on the way for OTK, although the specifics of these adjustments are yet unclear. Emiru assured her audience that the adjustments would be explained in the following months, despite the fact that few specifics were provided. Emiru said that these alterations may take any form “As bad as things are now, they are just getting better. For the time being, that is all I can tell.”
OTK is no stranger to criticism since this isn’t the first time it has happened. Lately, another player in the group got himself into serious trouble. Former housemate and broadcaster CrazySlick has accused OTK member Mizkif, who is also a member of the group, of covering up a sexual assault claim made against Mizkif in old messages. Mizkif has offered an explanation for his own actions and verified the claims against him. After this was confirmed, OTK gave Mizkif time off to look into the situation on his own, and he returned to the squad shortly thereafter.
Even though things have been tough for the OTK crew as of late, many of their supporters will be looking forward to the better times that Emiru predicts are just around the corner. It is unclear at this moment whether this will result in new people being recruited to the OTK team, but it is not unreasonable to expect that departing casters will be replaced by newcomers. Emiru herself is a recent addition to the OTK staff, having recruited at the turn of the calendar year.
