‘What does EMA gain by ending MJT partnership?’

Slava NovozhenyaBut Mr. Novozhenya does not see any link between the two: the sponsor contract, and the cooperation in MORSE (the Mahjong Online Ranking System Europe).

So now he asks the visitors of MahjongNews to give their opinions. "MahjongNews readers could lead EMA to make right decisions", he says.

His question to the visitors of MahjongNews is:


"What does EMA gain by ending our partnership agreement before its expiration date? Is this decision fair for EMA players, who lost MORSE tournaments?"

Clearly they don't literally have anything to gain, but from reading the other articles on this site, the problem seems a little bit more complicated than the question posed by the headline of this article. This online newspaper is free to write whatever it wants and quote whomever it wants, but when it publishes an article only quoting a source on one side of an issue *and has a banner-ad by that same source on the same webpage as the article*, one starts to wonder about its objectivity.

As said in another article ( http://www.mahjongnews.com/en/index.php/nieuws/reports/436-mjtproblems.html), EMA have trouble to get answers from MJT.
If EMA have something to gain, it's make MJT react and communicate with them.
It would be better if they react by friendly speach, and not try to turn players against EMA. Giving arguments in favor of MJT will be great too, but they didn't seem to find any.

Pointing out there is no alternative servers for now* is not a argument to justify a partnership.

*I mean in English and with Chinese Official rules.
