this man is a tier 3 player and will receive more money in 3 years than entire hltv people in their entire lives. I mean if a new guy like him receive this much how many does s1mple or zywoo receive? CS:GO economy looks crazy even out of the game

Yep but still very high to a new player
2020-09-19 20:27
he gets like 11k a month, thats quite a bit but nothing crazy
2020-09-19 20:28
Yeah, nothing crazy. He would earn 11k a year in a normal job.
2020-09-19 20:32
Thats why he choose esports as his job. Now stop being salty about it
2020-09-19 20:35
Im not salty at all lmao, props to him for securing the bag, his future and all but saying that player like him earning 11k a month is nothing crazy is just ridiculous. Moreover, you are now portraying it as if any player that enters the scene is earning as much. This kid has zero experience against decent opposition, I am all up for a new team entering the scene and boosting the competitiveness, but so far this team is shaping itself to be the biggest meme in the history.
2020-09-19 20:49
you think broky or bymas got less then 11k a month in faze? or frozen when he joined mouz? I highly doubt it, its just that player salaries are pretty unknown and looks to me that you are kinda surprised they are this high.
2020-09-19 20:52
Then you become a pro if it's that easy, if it's profitable for the org why not pay that much?
2020-09-19 20:52
Dont put words in my mouth, I did not say its easy. Obviously he spent a lot of time in the game to become what he is, all Im saying is that throwing this much money in the face of a 20yo kid who has never played against tier 1 team is absurd.

Giving football players those immense salaries still allow the business to make profit, so it's justifiable. Whereas for CS:GO , every top team loses hundreds and thousands of Euros a year sometimes millions, so it kind of shows how inflated the CS:GO salaries are and it's just not financially viable in most cases.
2020-09-19 20:27
Some football teams actually losing millions tho. Also if you think 11k per month is too much, just check LCS player salary. Now that's insanity.
2020-09-19 20:37

Cloud9 is one of the absolute richest organisations in the sport. A lot of other orgs do not pay this much for their players. And if you go outside of the tier 1, these salaries do not exist. There's no way TeamOne, Gambit or Sprout players are paid that much, for example.
2020-09-19 21:56
yeh ik, but it doesn't invalidate the fact that csgo salaries are inflated

I mean, I guess, but are they really? As an esports fan, I can say that I want my sport to progress into the mainstream, to be considered on the same stage as football, hockey or motorsports. With this, it's only natural that salaries would reach to similar heights. These salaries we are seeing right now are still not bigger than salaries in "regular" sports. So for esports salaries to be considered inflated, you also have to consider salaries in other sports to be inflated, which I guess is also true, depending on your opinion. If the two sports were of the same size, s1mple and Ronaldo would be making the same. Do both have inflated salaries? I also want to add: for every team that pays their players the numbers that C9 does, there's 100 other teams, playing under smaller organisations or no orgs at all, that hardly get paid enough to live off, if anything. I'd say if you averaged out the salaries of every single CS:GO player in the Top 200 HLTV rankings, if they were all known, you'd reach a much lower number. On the contrary, if you would average out the salaries of every player on the Top 200 football teams in the world, that would still be a very large number. I think esports salaries are fine and as long as other sportsmen are paid a similar amount, I think they could keep growing. It's a growing incentive to join the sport and compete, which will only grow the scene further. It's always easy to say "well he's getting stupid rich just by playing CS" but in the same way you could say "he's getting stupid rich from kicking a ball into a net".
2020-09-19 22:06
You can't compare football clubs to CS:GO orgs. Nearly every single football club turns over tens of millions in profit at the end of the year despite the immense salaries given to their players. Whereas, with CS:GO every single top org loses hundreds and thousands of dollars per year, sometimes more than a million. Having salaries above the 30K threshold should not be a thing, it was fine when everyone was in the 15-25k region. Yes there is some more viewership in the scene and more progress but that advancement should not warrant such salaries. It's just putting CS:GO orgs into more and more losses per year. FCB pay messi like 80 million a year, but his value alone is worth that and FCB make like 900million in revenue a year, so it is not a problem for them. C9 pay ALEX 420k a month, but at the end of the year, C9 probably lose more than a million dollars. On top of that, we have the sponsorship and CS:GO issue, where companies are hesitant in sponsoring csgo teams due to the "terrorist" , war-crime type game. It is just not financially viable to sustain such salaries

Like I said: I want the sport to grow to the same size as football. The salaries will increase. But what comes first? The chicken or the egg? Do the bigger viewership come first, which grows the sport, which allows all teams to raise their player salaries? Or do the bigger salaries come first, creating incentive for people to join the sport, and engaging more people in the sport? Side note: I think your "probably" in the sentence about orgs losing money is a key word. We don't know and it's different for every org. C9 and G2 are examples of two orgs who can afford this as they are involved in many esports and have several revenue streams coming in. Besides, C9 would not have the budget to support these salaries if they were losing money every month. They will not go bankrupt because of the salaries. Also: for the record, you got the numbers wrong. ALEX does not earn 420k every month. He has a 3 year deal in total worth 1,65 million dollars, including his transfer fee from Vitality. This was previously reported to be 600 thousand dollars, so let's assume it's still in that region and that his 3 year salary is 1 million dollars. That equates to roughly 28k monthly. Still a lot, but in my opinion perfectly fair for a team that's aiming to be the best in the world. I can get behind the statement "sportsmen's salaries are inflated". I can even stretch that as far as saying all entertainment salaries are inflated. Do actors really deserve tens of millions of dollars for making a movie? While an engineer working to improve the state of our overall living on earth, only makes a fraction of that in a year? But, the fact of the matter is that's the world we're living in. Professional CS:GO players are sportsmen in the same right as football players. Their sports are nowhere near the same size yet, but they will be. And for the very best of the world, I think a few tens of thousands of dollars is more than fair.
2020-09-19 22:46
its not inflated, it will rise day by day.
2020-09-19 23:23
zywoo probably makes like 40-50k/month, shox probably also is close to that region, simple probably makes much less than zywoo but probably still around 20k
2020-09-19 20:25
pretty sure no one in CS is past the 35k/month CSGO salary threshold, pretty sure the boys at complexity are the closest to that
2020-09-19 20:28
vitality probably is, they are a pretty big org with big sponsors
2020-09-19 20:29
probably but all I know is that no one earns more than 30-35k/month, the average seems to be 25k

2020-09-19 20:28
but ALEX proved himself as one of the best igl last year, brought vitality to top 2 and plays for 3 years now so he will obviously get a lot of money... mezii hasnt proved anything yet and is already getting paid 11k per month like wth
2020-09-20 18:56
It's one of the lowest salaries in a top team it's normal to have 10k

$11k a month for someone on C9 isn't a lot tbh, whoever they are To put it into perspective, ALEX is getting, what, $35k a month? More? It's a modest salary for a newcomer like Mezii but it's not ridiculous.
2020-09-19 20:38

3 year salary, so its fine
2020-09-19 20:44
It's over a 3 year period. The actual buyout was around 80k dollars. Mezii gets paid around 9k a month which is probably less than someone who would be benched on a top 20 team considering a top player makes 3x more a month. So why not? If he is 3x worse than someone like flamie then why not pay him 3x less? C9 are a rich org anyway and you just sound salty that you're poor and bad at CS :D

Keep in mind that playing cs for a living is not a long term job so you must make the most you can while it lasts. Also they start playing young so they won't have any qualifications to pick a new job once their professional career is over.

38k per month for alex omegalul
2020-09-19 22:16
hardware, betting and skin market is a huge deal, why isn't that obvious? and gaming market as a whole only keeps growing. Esports are like cherry on the cake, companies pay millions and millions for advertisement. 11k is nothing to tier 1 roster, in future years top players might get 100k+ and thats only for good. It will allow higher competition to happen and therefore more entertainment for viewers to watch.
2020-09-19 22:55
+1, most important is betting. LOTS OF PEOPLE bet and don't even play CS. Every tournament is sponsored by betting companies like 1xbet and a lot of pro tier 1 teams are sponsored by betting companies, like NaVi or Virtus pro
2020-09-19 22:57
I dont believe its the biggest among all, majority will always stay distant from betting, kids and students are the main preorities when it comes to advertising, and these people dont really have much money on their own, they can only ask for PC upgrade or w/e pc related. betting is still second biggest thing, I think all esports combined are scale of a tennis and tennis is a huge deal in terms of betting.
2020-09-19 23:17
I'm a student and I was betting CS:GO games when I was 14 yo ^^ Golden CS:GO Lounge times, skin betting. But yeah, lots of companies pay a lot of money for adds

Thats awright 400k is the price of a decent apartment
2020-09-20 15:24
?_? In Romania with 40k you can buy a 3 room apartment if u r not from Bucharest or another expensive city.
2020-09-20 16:03
U ve answered to your question yourself - in romania
2020-09-20 17:14
just saying.. if that's how expensive apartments are in Deutschland then I won't be moving out of Romania anytime soon.
2020-09-20 18:01
I mean u can find something for 80k but it would a 1room in a rundown building An ok appartment is like 250k at very least
2020-09-20 18:44
well if u think about it, it's normal... I mean salaries are way bigger in Germany so of course apartments are more expensive
2020-09-20 18:46
Yeah, but income tax... And you cant hoard all your salary for an apartment, so mortgage is the only way out
2020-09-20 18:49
WOW, that's cheap if it's located in the major cities. Do you need to pay tax afterwards?
2020-09-20 18:15
Wdym of course u gotta pay taxes U gotta work like for 15-20 years to afford a decent flat or take out a mortgage and pay it for next 30 years I dunno but most of buddies just rent places if u got the money of course buy one but if u dont i dont think a flat is worth a 30 years dependence to the bank
2020-09-20 18:48
In cologne for 400k you get a shit house. On a village, you get for 100k easy 300QM + landscape and a big garden.

"this man is a tier 3 player and will receive more money in 3 years than entire hltv people in their entire lives. " 400k is more than some people here will earn in their entire lives? My gf makes 58k a year. So in less than 8 years she'll make more than some people will in their entire lives. In almost every fulltime job with decent award rates, you'll be looking at numbers that make your statement seem pathetic. A call centre worker here in aus is making that in 10 years lol. "I mean if a new guy like him receive this much how many does s1mple or zywoo receive? CS:GO economy looks crazy even out of the game" 130k a year is a decent amount but less than half of what S1mple is making minimum if he's anywhere close to the average wage of 25k a month people quote everywhere. Representing a T1 brand name like C9, that seems like a decent amount.
