IF Xyp9x retires
Finland TuureBoelius 
If Xyp9x retired now, would he have enough money never to have to work again?

No he is accustomed to a certain lifestyle now
2020-08-04 22:49 Earned just shy of $1.8 million in tournament earnings alone. On top of that comes sponsorships and probably one of the highest paychecks in the scene. Even with Danish taxes etc., he would easily be set for life.

What are his expenses?
2020-08-05 11:54
My guess would be just as good as yours. But one can only assume that the majority of his expenses relate to real estate, which in essence barely is an expense due to the global interest rates. And yes, he will still easily be set for life.
2020-08-05 12:13
Those players dont seem to live an very expensive life. I mean you rarely see an established successful e-sport player with ferrari and a really expensive villa, watches which costs over 200.000 each and stuff like that.
2020-08-05 13:25
but all of that maybe apart from the villa is unnecesarry bullshit kids want and u dont aclly need for life I bet he isnt from a superwealthy family and is used to a normal lifestyle, therefore has more than enough money for his current lifestyle/invest in real estate for example which could keep earning him money forever
2020-08-05 13:29
New Zealand rOtten_97
What makes a villa stand out? Just get a normal house or apartment, you don't need more than that
2020-08-05 14:01
Its a living place that he could use as another way of income further in his life (renting real estate) so unlike a car it could bring him money back
2020-08-05 14:15
New Zealand rOtten_97
Fair enough
2020-08-05 14:46
Europe PowwneD
And still they could afford it, top 10 teams players earn between 10k and 40k a month depend of the contract without counting sponsorship, tournament earnings, major stickers (underated money source) ...
2020-08-05 13:37
Duphree got a really nice car
2020-08-06 11:27
He lives in a 2 million euro apartment, so probably kinda expensive with taxes etc.
2020-08-05 16:00
Does he own it?
2020-08-05 16:11
Pretty sure he posted the buy on instagram a few years back, and later a danish newspaper posted an article about it, confirming the price.
2020-08-05 16:13
There is leaked salary of €2.2 million/year of all astralis players too ez for him
2020-08-05 19:35
He will not retire
2020-08-04 22:49
Sure he will
2020-08-05 14:09
check xyp9x story instagram xd
2020-08-04 22:49
Damn !! I hope he returns soon
2020-08-04 22:58
Gla1ve posted the same story earlier :3 Seems like they're back lol

if he invests it, probably I don't know how much he has after the Danish gov't taxes the shit out of his earnings
2020-08-04 22:50
Brazil sakaaa
look at the size of his brains, do you really think he would keep his money on country that taxes almost 50% of wealth?
2020-08-04 23:20
2020-08-04 23:30
they dont tax wealth idiot. He already payed taxes on everything he made.
2020-08-05 01:11
Brazil sakaaa
yes, and one of the ways of evading this is simply opening a company somewhere else and get paid there. no need to be a dick, my friend. it was primarily a joke.
2020-08-05 02:26
lmao it really isn't that easy, especially not when we're talking about winnings that are on public record. The winnings go to the organisation first, then to the players.
2020-08-05 11:34
Brazil sakaaa
still doable. the company (astralis) can hire in two ways, one being an employee and this will make them oblige the local law for payments (both parties) and the other being hiring a company as a service. on this case, it would impossible for any government to tax this, aside from the country where this 'service provider' is registered. this is a very common practice. i actually get paid this way hehe anyway, focus on the JOKE, it was a JOKE (or an attempt of)

Brazil talking???
2020-08-05 14:14
2020-08-04 22:50
It depends. If he retires atm and does what someone like shroud did and become a streamer or maybe a coach for a team he could live off his earnings. Also if he brands himself then he could make moves
2020-08-04 23:03
He won't retire relax bots
2020-08-04 23:05
nt no scene. norway is the real bot
2020-08-05 01:12
wtf?He literally said xyp9x won't retire, what got you so mad?

nice name man
2020-08-06 13:06
lmao Im not mad kiddo, he just dont know that. Xyp and Glaive will try another round for sure but its likely they will retire soon after to pursue other things and save their bodies. They are both big brainers.
2020-08-05 19:33
he has millions, imagine all the money from majors + salary of a tier 1 team for years, If he invests into like property hes set for life
2020-08-04 23:14
they literaly won every tournament in 2017, 18,19. Even all the 3rd places in majors, that a ton of money
2020-08-04 23:16
not 2017*
2020-08-04 23:36
he still won a major in 2017, and came 3rd in another one
2020-08-05 10:40
but they won only 2 big events that year
2020-08-05 11:03
"only 2" lol i mean i guess a major is an only
2020-08-05 11:57
dude you said "they won every tournament in 2017", and you were wrong, just stop it
2020-08-05 13:24
well technically if you want to act smart they also didnt win everything in 2018 and 2019, its metaphorical kid
2020-08-05 13:40
They won more than %80 of the tournaments they attended in 2018 and 2019, so its technically not wrong
2020-08-05 13:41
k f off now lol
2020-08-05 14:12
Well,they definetly didnt win 80% of tournaments they attended in 2019
2020-08-05 14:16
maybe not %80 in 2019, but %60
2020-08-05 16:32
Wait until the Danes tax you.
2020-08-05 01:08
they already did idiot
2020-08-05 01:12
Portugal MCDOUG
I don't know how the legislation works on e-sports, but his salary is obviously taxed in Denmark just like any other guy. Now prizes from lan tournaments on other countries, I'm not sure, because they're not physically working on Denmark. Do the players win the prizes directly from the tournament organizations or are the prizes paid first to the team org and then they distribute for each player?
2020-08-05 11:11
Pretty sure the orgs gets it, and then pays out to the players. And if you live in Denmark, you pay danish taxes. Doesn’t matter where you earned the money. And all the players probably have set up a company, so they can decide themselves how much they get paid, and also maybe avoid some taxes.
2020-08-05 11:23
Earnings, no matter which country they're earned in, will be taxed by the country you are legally living in. If he wins a tournament in the USA, he will be taxed by the Danish government for it.
2020-08-05 11:36
I'm not quite sure prized are being taxed. If they do, it is another tax rate, which I'm pretty sure is lower than income tax rate.
2020-08-05 16:15
The team get the prize money. The org distributes it. After that depending on which country the tournament its played in and how the contracts look like for the players they will get the prize money/their income paid as salary and/or prizes. Xyp and Glaive have most certainly already paid tax for everything they have earned so far. All the prizes and of course their monthly salary. The most taxes they can be behind is one year, so its not like they will have to pay a lot of money if they retire now. They got the money they made. There is no wealth tax like some kids seem to think. The only way taxes are falling behind is if players have their own companies where they put the money to "invest" or maybe they got an option in their contract to get a bigger stake in the Astralis company instead of some prize money or salary. If they do that money will be taxed when/if they sell their shares.
2020-08-05 19:36
Not even close if he starts a family.
2020-08-04 23:23
why not? UNI is free and students get payed over 1000 euro per month to study.
2020-08-05 01:13
1000 euro??? Easy now with the numbers dude.
2020-08-05 13:30
2020-08-05 13:58
fine, its about 900 dollars, over 1000 australian dollars is what I meant. but still a family wont break their economy in the same way having a family with kids at uni in Australia does.
2020-08-05 19:36
That sounds better son 👍
2020-08-05 23:27
xyp9x and gla1ve are returning soon dw

Switzerland OHMOHM
NO Tax,Living cost,House With $1.4M I think he can live without working 10years at maximum
2020-08-04 23:26
10 years? you mean he's spending $140k a year?
2020-08-05 00:48
Switzerland OHMOHM
I heard Danes taxes veri high mens also house,wife,kids,car Nah fuck that he's coming back to cs
2020-08-05 00:59
you think he only has 1.4 mill?
2020-08-05 11:02
to be fair probably around that
2020-08-05 11:02
Switzerland OHMOHM
Maybe lower than that ( I might be wrong obviously ) Look at dane tax men
2020-08-05 11:15
Not really. Not even if we're generous and say he's earned 2M through out his career from salaries and winnings. Not to mention how much of it he already spent.
2020-08-04 23:28
Probably yes, but even he doesn't, he can still be a streamer and earn enough
2020-08-04 23:33
hey need help i am aboutto buy a computer only to play cs can anyone with some experience tell me if this hardware can handle: Gigabyte GA A320m-h (1.1) 2x8 gb 2400mhz ddr4 APU ryzen3 2200g 3.5gh
2020-08-05 00:51
plz GOD does not let Andreas retire, I need to watch more magical clutches.
2020-08-05 01:01
Just watch broky for magical clutches can confirm have done it
2020-08-05 01:07
he has won the most out of any player (1.7 million) in prize money alone on top of his salary and any other sponsorship deals he does but maybe not living in denmark if he moves to cheaper country and buys a house there he probably could
2020-08-05 01:07
If he moves to Eastern Europe, yeah.
2020-08-05 01:17
I could turn his 2 million into 20 over the course of his lifetime! He should contact me, I am a financial genius! 😎👍
2020-08-05 02:37
ofc he does. he earned the most money by playing in tournaments, leagues etc. dont know about his salary which is also on of the highest for sure since he is a member of the best team of all time. even people like idk, byali, olof, zeus, taco etc dont need to work until they die if they are smart, every one of them is a milioner, if not they have a car worth of 200.000$ or a house they can sell and have a good life ez.
2020-08-05 02:38
Finland Jupe_
He doesn't retire but yes he would have enough money. He posted "glad to back" and playing deathmatch in his instagram story yesterday
2020-08-05 02:41
2020-08-05 10:43
ye lol he could of gotten a better car for someone with 4 majors

It’s been a pleasure driving home for Christmas this year in my new Mercedes A220 4MATIC 😍 what a shitpost LOL
2020-08-05 19:29
if he had an a45 amg he'd either be home 4 hours faster or be dead in a car accident
2020-08-06 04:04
Some invest and never has to work a day in their lives again other go bankrupt within 5years (if we go by WAY richer sports people). I have no clue how much Xyppe is worth, but you could retire in the nordics with 10 million(1 million dollar) invested (but you are forced to live a normal life, no luxury here). But let's say you are worth 20-30 million, have invested it well, perhaps moved to a cheaper country, still is active on social media and such( a bit of influencer and shit), its ez never work again.
2020-08-05 10:49
idk about that, 10 million is a lot of fucking money, you can buy 10 properties for a mill and rent them for 3k a month, 3 times 10= 30k a month lol, basically what he earns rn probably
2020-08-05 13:14
off of prize money alone he's set for life, but he's got like a 6-7 figure salary from astralis so he's got no problems
2020-08-05 10:52
I can't imagine him having THAT much money from his career alone. Dude is only 24, the rest of his life is a very long time and money disappear quickly.
2020-08-05 10:59
He has earned 1.7m from just prize money, + all sponsors, salarys, etc
2020-08-05 11:27
Which is nowhere near enough to not work for the rest of his life.
2020-08-05 11:32
If he doesnt live like a millionaire and lives a basic normal life, its enough
2020-08-05 11:35
Even if he lives a basic normal life, it really isn't that much at all. You need to take into account pension ages as well and compare to how much a person would have earned if they worked their entire life. Also think about children and expenses. An average person in denmark with a "basic life" makes 39k (googled). With working ages from 24 (his age now) until 65 = 41 years = the average person would make 1.6 million during that time before tax (let's even ignore that xyp9x is probably paying much higher tax right now than the average dane since he has higher earnings per year, so a higher tax band). If you then live to 85, you have another 20 years of living off of that money without being able to work. That's estimating the AVERAGE person. Which means he can't go too crazy buying a house, has to watch his money constantly. People really don't know that a million is really not much at all
2020-08-05 11:41
he made just 1 million alone with salary not to talk about sponsorship and commercials they took part at. im sure 2 million any person in the west can retire and live a healthy life.
2020-08-05 16:36
2 million? delusional man. It really isn't as much as it sounds.
2020-08-05 22:34
avarage person monthly outgoing is max 4000€ 5000€ if u live a middle / high class life. u probably can get 100 squaremeter flat for 2000€ a month in copenhagen. u dont need more than 1000€ for the rest of the month. we'Re not talkin dan bilzerian lifestyle. just a avarage gamer lifestyle. if u cant live 100 years with 2 million$ on that ur a fool.
2020-08-06 11:14
That’s 3.6 million if he lives another 60 years. That’s barring any big purchases like a house + that’s barring having kids
2020-08-06 11:18
hes almost 30 he will not have another 50 years.
2020-08-06 11:15
He’s 24. 84 is a normal expected lifespan
2020-08-06 11:18
sure look outside. world literally going down in the next 25 years if the human behaviour doesnt change drastically.
2020-08-06 11:18
Hahaha ok maybe try arguing the actual point instead of bullshitting about irrelevant thoughts. Point is that several million is not as much as people seem to think it is
2020-08-06 11:19
ur just retarded thinking u cant live ur life with 2 million haha the way u live it now.
2020-08-06 12:48
The way I live it now? Yeah not a chance in hell.
2020-08-06 23:15
A couple of million is not enough money to say you don't have to work again for the rest of your life- unless you forsake any kind of luxury at all.
2020-08-05 11:32

he just move to Astralis Valorant division
2020-08-05 11:33
2020-08-05 11:37
house with land = around 200k, buy goats and lambs, chickens etc for food and drink, a filtration system for rain water or a well and solar panels. He can live fine with the money he has
2020-08-05 11:42
"house with land = around 200k" Bruh that has to be the smallest house you've ever seen on the smallest plot of land. If you want land for goats and lambs and chicken and a well, all of that, look forward to paying 500k+
2020-08-05 11:43
mate you are so wrong its unreal, in Northern Scotland you can find a cottage with land for like 60k lmao, for 200k you could probably outright buy a farmstead
2020-08-05 11:48
60k LMAO ok link me to a 60k house with land right now and I'll believe you. You're either trolling or delusional. Also a 60k shack that is crumbling will require 100k+ in restoring anyway. show me a house that you can actually live in + land for 60k
2020-08-05 11:58
Just checked 80k cottage with 0.5 acres of land if you went up to the highlands and asked people around for properties I guarantee you can find one for 60k
2020-08-05 12:33
Needs work. Will require like 200k to restore this thing. It literally says "no home report because NOT habitable"
2020-08-05 14:17
Who would want to live in a shithole like that?Easy 100k for renewal
2020-08-05 14:29
literally liveable
2020-08-05 15:35
literally isn't. It says it on the actual fucking ad "No home report because NOT habitable"
2020-08-05 16:03
you can still live in there
2020-08-06 03:49
Grasping at straws now buddy, and you know it.
2020-08-06 09:39
it depends where the house is located, what country etc, uk is quite expensive, whilst in poorer countries you can get a mansion for 200k
2020-08-05 13:11
I'm aware, I own a house in the UK. 80k for a home with land that is actually habitable is ridiculous.
2020-08-05 14:18
outside capital cities u can easily find something for 200k and he doesnt look like a guy to me that needs 10 rooms and 10000 squaremeter. buy 1 house / apartment for urself and one for real estate rental and ur life is settled.
2020-08-05 15:46
in cyprus. Not in Denmark.
2020-08-05 16:02
Yes, cuz he's probably has some Astralis shares for sure like F0rest and Get_Right had or has NIP shares.
2020-08-05 12:02
Denmark giefleve
Did they confirm they have shares or are you just guessing?
2020-08-05 14:01
I'm guessing but it's about 60% true cuz top players who win 3 majors in a row have shares of org for sure.
2020-08-05 15:13
For sure lol
2020-08-05 13:13
You would be suprised how much life costs in scandinavia/other rich countries. 1mill $ is like ´9-10 mill SEK/Danish krona which is not nearly enough to live a decent life. Normal workers earn more than that working 30 years.
2020-08-05 14:06
men hes playing 4 years in astralis now and probably had a 10-15k or higher monthly salary, im sure that guy is good to go unless he falls to the material devil.
2020-08-05 15:43
Yeah just sayin' kids that only use their economy on buying monster think that 1m $ is alot of money for adults which is really not
2020-08-05 16:25
Why do so many people think he wants to retire?He is pretty much the best player at his role,any org would kill to get him. He might be able to be settled for life if he would sacrifice some of his quality of life.But I think he would be bored at some point and either start streaming,become a talent or just work in a normal job.
2020-08-05 14:20
what is there to gain when u reached u'r endgoal already 4 times?
2020-08-05 15:49
why the fuck would he retire? he's 24 yo
2020-08-05 14:21
INS | 
Australia CLEGGY
because he looks 50 yo
2020-08-05 15:17
He is back online, I think he will play 4 astralis soon..
2020-08-05 14:48
depends on his lifestyle, but for sure if he wanted to yes
2020-08-05 15:13
every tier1 player can retire for a normie lifestyle. buy house/apartment for 500k and enjoy life with the other 1 mil
2020-08-05 15:39
most of them will just end up in astralis managment or other esport roles.
2020-08-05 15:40
easy 1.7 mil from price money and since 3-4 years 10-20k monthly salary for gamer he can live 3 extra life like that.
2020-08-05 15:42
look pasha, he doesnt need to work anymore either. he turn on his stream 2 -3 times a month to collect some donation and some subs and for the rest, hes settled even his son/daugther is settled for life.
2020-08-05 15:52
Denmark giefleve
Yea, but pasha lives in Poland. Its much cheaper compared to Denmark. But i think anyways Xyp9x has enough moneys to retire
2020-08-05 15:58
Depends on his lifestyle. Also, I hope he's just leaving Astralis as the org is a fucking joke behind the scenes.
2020-08-05 16:28
lol like slavery wasnt astralis their own company with the 2017 or 2016 karrigan lineup? i dont understand how this could happen
2020-08-05 19:33
Not anywhere near as bad as slavery, but the org has done some pretty fucked stuff.
2020-08-05 20:43
Afaik Xyp9x pays danish tax and with his income we're talking 45-50% atleast. On top of that there's a 25% VAT on all goods and services in Denmark and a car is taxed up to 180% of it's price here. So no, he hasn't made enough money to go sit on his ass for 50 years.
2020-08-06 03:58
He would yea
2020-08-06 03:59
Ofc, brother
2020-08-06 04:02
Finland Juseboy
he's got like 1.7m from just winnings so im sure hes fine for the rest of his life
2020-08-06 11:21
he could easily retire now and never work again for the next 50-60 years. 2 million only from tournaments + salary in his whole career he probably comes above 3-4 million in total. the question is why would he retire ,when he is making money with his hobby?
