> Ik he wont leave Vega, but if Vega started to perform poorly he would move.
I was talking about right now and nearly future. If you want exact numbers, I'd say mir is not gonna leave Vega in next 2 years.
> Vega wont achieve much in my opinion. They'll continue to be a decent team that can make upsets but they'll never be a top contender.
So what? You can say the same about many other teams: mouz, North, fnatic, Cloud9, NiP, Gambit, Optic, Misfits, Liquid...
> Most likely, mir will leave vega someday if offered to play in a more consistent and better team.
Everything is possible. Who knows what will happen in 5 years. I didn't say mir will stay in Vega forever.
> Yes he may want to play with friends and "achieve something together" but I doubt he would let his teammates decide how his career spans out.
He cares more about his team career than his own career. As well as other Vega players probably. This is from some interview with Vega:
"We did not really think about changes or anything like that as we are what you call a team. We are together, we are doing our own thing and we have a goal that we want to achieve. If we had some problems or if players were thinking that they would be leaving for another team, we would not have renewed the contracts. But we did it, these are long-term contracts, and we are happy with them".
I hope it tells you enough about their approach.
> Although, at the end of the day any smart pro player would be seeking financial stability and doing everything in their power to secure a comfortable future, as they are all aware that this occupation wont last forever.
Of course. But there are many other ways to do it if you want to.
> He's currently 22 years of age and I assume that cs is his full time job. If he is unable to find some form of employment in the e-sports industry after retiring (which would most likely be around the age of 30) its going to be difficult for him considering he will have no form of experience in the workforce. Do you really believe an employer is going to hire someone who has had no experience whatsoever, over someone who's had years of knowledge and mastery in that particular field?
Perhaps it would be difficult, but not impossible.
