Origen has seen their staffing drop to less than half of what it used to be in less than twenty-four hours, as several staff members announced their departure from the organization on Wednesday.


According to many of the Tweets made in the series of announcements, including those made by Origen chief editor and social media manager Ioana “Ch3rryBomb” Popa, working with Origen has been a stressful experience that included unnecessary drama and a number of internal conflicts.

After the series of Tweets, Origen’s general manager Marck “PapaB3ar” Hernandez followed up by posting a screenshot of a Skype conversation between himself and the mother of Origen’s founder Mari “XMOM” Carmen Martinez. The conversation was captioned with “Apparently all of the sudden I was fired and not the other way around so here is for you all to know.” The screenshot has since been removed, but a Reddit user was able to translate it from Spanish in the thread’s comments section. According to the translation, at least seven individuals have chosen to walk away from the organization for all of the same reasons.

Origen has yet to comment on the issue, which took place just before the announcement that they have acquired Augustas “Toaster” Ruplys and Benjamin “Zhergoth” Sánchez.
