SK - can't they not get a team due to owning vp as well?
Dignitas - have female team, not sure why no regular team.
TSM - Multiple report that they looking
100T - Don't blame them after Brazil forgot to take out to dinner first
EG - Why the fuck they no here
Secret - Female team iirc
Kaliber - who?
theres no money in CS , thats why they left
tK - I think every player knows that org is shit so I dont see anyone going to them ever again in cs
TSM said cs is too expensive for them to invest in right now or something along those lines
SK wont cuz VP have a team
100T idk I know Nade loves CS but there arent any teams I can see he him investing in unless you can name some and his first and only experience with buying a team was ex immortals and that went awful
Secret and EG no clue
Dignitas said theyre done with male cs correct me if im wrong
There's not a lot of money in CS.
There's a lot of money generally in esports. Certain orgs like C9, G2, Liquid, Fnatic, Faze etc have done a really good job spreading it around to many games and building "household" brands.
To me this means a couple things. If you are an NA org for example and you get lucky like Team Liquid did then having a prescense in CS is absolutely worth it. If you are TSM or EG then it might not be. If C9 can't bring in local talent off a lesser org like NRG then there's no chance you are going to be able to without outlaying a huge amount of cash.
The same is really true in Europe. It's not like there are S and A tier players just lying around. Maybe Sunny and that's it?
Not only that from an organizational perspective the really succesful rich orgs are super interested in franchising. That's why being involved in League is the main focus of pretty much every big org out there. That's why Overwatch got so much attention in the beginning.
I wouldn't want a franchise type of system in CS because I like having independent tournaments but I totally understand the appeal. Just using C9 as an example their London Spitfire team and LoL team virtually ensure them a huge fanbase and good cash flow. Their fortunes in CS have risen and fallen based off the whims of players. If I'm running the org as a businessman and not a fan of CS then it's not going to be my first focus either.
100theives be like wtf kngv said a swear word >:((((((
Actually u need a shit ton of money to get a good team
