Why would I spend the entire day here? I send a lot of sms as well yet I wouldn't say I spend the entire day on my contact list.
This being said, I spend a lot of time here indeed. Something between 1 and 3h a day with hltv website open when i'm in an hltv mood.
But since it is my only computer hobby (and watching some tournaments) as I don't play anymore, it is not a lot of time spend on computer recreative activities compared to a lot of hltv users if you add their time spend ingame.
But what the fuck I'm doing here instead of fucking whores all around the world?
I'm very settle, I am married, my wife still works, so I have a lot of free time once day to day asset management, newspaper reading, and sport routine done, few meetings, etc..
I came back on hltv after something like of 10 years because I was in a wheelchair, not sure to walk again. And I wanted to help something that was not very popular but important to me when I was young. My project was to invest in a professional team. And I came here to prospect how the market evolved, what sponsors, how maturate was the market, etc..
And as I saw a team was too expensive for my budget (according to the profit/risk related to total cost) I felt in love with the forum and got my interest for competitive cs back so I kept coming.
To me, rhetoric is a real hobby, arguing with people and sometime baiting are somethings I like, so why not?
No mention it train my too poor english as you noticed.
Also, I'm not doing just that, I do that while I watch tv show, movies, documentary, news, conferences, etc..
And finally, it is a very good way to have access to international mood not related in news.
For instance, Bolsonaro was obviously a serious competitor according to hltv. But even more important, the trends in the youth, as you are people of hltv, in term of consumption tendencies, etc..
Fortnite was a big shot to not miss (and then Epic and then Tencent, that's a reason of this bank account in Hong Kong, so part of this money was made with your help).
And to know something first helps a lot when it comes to investments. Hltv, not is not just a hobby, but also one of my "secret" thermometer compared to classic investment banking that is barely able to analyse reddit/twitter trends in a fast and fine enough way.
Sorry for the long post but then you (and other reading) know it all, now take it as bait or not, I don't really care.
In this topic but also in a lot of other such as scientific or politics one, I answer to share my experiences and knowledge in order to help you fox and had fun talking with people I would never met otherwise.
Have a nice day
TL;DR : HLTV is a win (fun) win (share) win (knowledge) to me
