" Next year, if someone from our league with a lot of money is saying: 'I'll pay a million buyout and pay him a 2 million salary', eventually some of Astralis' players are going to leave. I don't care what the team name in the league is, I care which players are in the league Duncan "Thorin" Shields " Did he mean that Astralis players are so selfish they care more about money than playing game for fun and for team fans?

retarded statement. Imagine you can go to the rival company but you get paid a lot more. Will you have loyalty to your other company?

lol this feels like "figo" when he abandoned his former club just to run after money and play to the rival club
2020-02-18 16:42
I watched a Tifo football video about the Figo saga. Makes more sense when you know the context you should watch it
2020-02-18 16:55
You realize its not a company, its a TEAM that have fanbase You really think that Real Madrid players would join to FC Kopenhagen and forgot fans if they get paid more there?
2020-02-18 17:04
What is there to care about fanbase to a player? Oh yes, leaving a brand would lead to haters and abuse on social media. So much for reason to care about fans.
2020-02-18 18:09
Who you think pay their salaries? Without fans do you think that there even would be PRO scene in CS?
2020-02-22 10:29
team plays salaries, team earns money from sponsorship deals, sponsorship deals are for advertisements. The advertisements aren't necessarily targeted towards "fans", any eyeballs will do.

He is salty Astralis left flashpoint trash league. Astralis were clear they told b site they need to sign at least 2 more top teams to give the league credibility. They didnt so Astralis left. Lmfao rip flashpoint tier 3 league.
2020-02-18 17:38
where's the info mens?
2020-02-18 18:02
Astralis owner said this. He has no reason to lie. The fact that flashpoint failed to sign any other top team is proof enough. If you were Astralis would you join a league with no top teams? Cmon man. Thorin is clearly uninformed and goes and posts shit on twitter then apologizes for it. It has been happening all the time these past few months. Just go search his apology tweets.
2020-02-18 18:37
"He has no reason to lie" did you forget he has the word LIE in his fucking name?!
2020-02-18 18:48
No i didn't. And yes he has no reason to lie. If flashpoint was such a good deal, other teams would already join and Astralis wouldn't leave. I'm not saying it wasn't a good deal, all i'm saying is all the other top teams declined it. End of story. Thorin can cry on twitter as much as he wants but that's not how bussiness works.
2020-02-18 18:51
I was being sarcastic bro, I agree with everything you said. Thorin's behaviour really surprised me, I often agreed with him and supported him for all the work he's done over the years but this time he's acting like a literal manchild. What Astralis did is perfectly normal from a business perspective and Thorin behaves in the most unprofessional manner you can imagine. Did he and people behind Flashpoint really believe that they could win the 'war' with the biggest juggernaut in esports? Did they really believe all the top teams would jump ship to a new, unproven league just like that? It honestly baffles me..

2020-02-18 19:59
Sounds to me like you can't find a reason he'd lie. Let alone you're just piggybacking off Thorin without taking a look at any of the info. There's no reason a top team would pay money to join a league with no good teams in it, when they can continue what they have been doing in the past and has worked well for them. Edit: page refreshed and you were being sarcastic. oops. my b. +1 to literally everything you said in your response post.
2020-02-18 19:15
No worries bro, I know detecting sarcasm on the internet is a treacherous bitch. Although I hope Thorin can get his shit together, it kind of seems like the guy is slowly descending into madness..

2020-02-18 17:47
What is there to be loyal about when talking about companies? You can be loyal to your friends, but to be such to a brand is just foolishness. Other than just fulfilling contractual obligations.
2020-02-18 17:52
right, Thorin appear naive for once

thorin is just mad that esl wont hire him because of the poland comments and his style his a lot more derogatory than other analyst. He is shilling flashpoint because he his hired by them simple as that.
2020-02-18 18:39
What he's saying is that his league is a huge gamble for the teams in it, if one team gets all the monies and use them for a buyout of a top player from another league, that just means the teams in the league lost a lot of monies and weakens.. I think this is bound to fail. let's see how this goes
