sexter has an accounting degree iirc
Zero ruined his career by going to programming but if he likes it, good for him
SunPayus is an engineer, he combined his studies with playing for Spanish teams.
A few do, but mostly the older pros who actually needed a backup plan since esports was much smaller
u need degree if u are IGL
I know for Karrigan Snappi and Dexter only
most of them don't even finish school, what degrees are you talking about
I believe Ax1le is studying rn
feel like some of the older pros might have a degree because the scene wasn't nearly as stable and highly payed back then
Of the people in the CS scene as a whole, karrigan, maniac, sjokz and Richard Lewis are the only ones I can think of with degrees
Most t1 players don't have one simply because by the time they have finished their CS career they are basically set for life or can just take some sort of internal org position because of their experience
Org management will have some people with degrees but with how atrocious most of these orgs are ran I don't think you can speak to their quality/validity
I think Karrigan and some older players have a degree
styko and zero have one i think
Mostly older players because back in the days esports was not as profitable, degrees still had a higher value and esports as a whole was way more risky as a career choice. Nowadays it is pretty safe, as there are a lot of ways to earn money somewhat consistently.
didnt twistzz and/or Ethan drop out of highschool to go fulltime in CS?
Most pros have room temp IQ. I remember a video made by ESL like 2 years ago (not available atm) where pros were asked some basic questions like "at what temperature does water boil?" and some of them werent able to answer it.
kscerato has a degree in being the best in the world
all I know that
only one I know is monesy
Unexpected, but Apex is pretty smart. Not sure, if he has diploma tho
karrigan has two master's degrees, no wonder he's the most successful igl
they kinda should eventully. most pros getting washed in their late 20s. and if they're lucky they can be a sucssesfull streamers or coacher for another couple of years and that's it. and that's only applied for the tier 1 pros who makes more then min wage in the first place
im fairly sure thomas has one. he studied during endpoint
taz master degree in law, he can be a lawyer any time he want
maniac has a degree in something like psychology too
the goat JamezIRL has a bioengineering degree
Fallen served in the Brazilian army and became a painter there.
smartest ex-pro has to be valens
worked at google and tesla
MS in data science from standford
I believe tabsen was applying for art school, but they've rejected him.
Jame has a degree in economics and finance
why is my comment deleted where i said general basic knowledge is very important?
How does such a comment is against any rule?
I dont think modern pros really have the time to actually do degrees unless they are outrageously talented and can spend time on university while playing.
and if they are that talented better off spending the time on esports and becoming a t1 player rather than university.
Ex pros Adren and n0thing?
you act like if you don't play pro CS you automatically have a degree, rather than having a job that doesn't require a degree. ridiculous. there's more to life than having a useless degree lol
