Secret bench rigoN

Secret have announced the benching of 20-year-old Rigon "rigoN" Gashi due to "a busy education schedule", leaving the team with four players on their active roster.

The team most recently utilized Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer as a stand-in for rigoN during their DreamHack Open Anaheim qualifier run, which was cut short early on as the team fell in the round of 128. Secret also took part in the qualifier for DreamHack Open Leipzig, managing to attain a spot in the closed stage before suffering a narrow 1-2 defeat to Heroic to be eliminated.

rigoN is taking a step back to focus on his studies

Happy was officially cut from the active roster of LDLC on January 19th as the organization announced the signing of Avengers, signaling the end of his nine-month tenure as a part of the French team. Secret members Dionis "sinnopsyy" Budeci and Flatron "juanflatroo" Halimi were among a number of players who played alongside Happy on LDLC during 2019, with his release from the organization now leaving a possible reunion in the cards.

rigoN has been a part of Secret since the roster was first signed at the end of November, averaging a 0.98 rating as the team took part the aforementioned DreamHack Leipzig qualifier, the IEM Katowice 2020 qualifiers, and LOOT.BET Season 5.

Secret's roster is now:

Albania Flatron "juanflatroo" Halimi
Albania Dionis "sinnopsyy" Budeci
Poland Filip "tudsoN" Tudev
Israel Guy "anarkez" Trachtman

Switzerland Rigon "rigoN" Gashi (inactive)

It is troubling news when an org signs a player that isn't even able to commit to the lineup more than a month and a half. What were they thinking in the first place I wonder. How are they ever supposed to improve if they already have changes, at the minimum the lineup needed 4 months just to go over their basics... Not looking good for their future

Well when they signed him, probably he didn't say anything (or troubling) his education. But time tells otherwise. Also, it just doesn't make more sense if they only sign 4 players from m1x team lmao, cucking your own teammates

For pros - yes, for people that are just playing on low ranks (us) - no.
2020-01-20 06:07
Idk i mean, this is a aspect i´ve been thinking alot, how long do people intend to be pros? I would say max age is 30 (with some exceptions ofcourse) but what do you do afterwards? You surely didnt earn enough to not work for 50 more years, and if you dont have a good school degree you wont get a job either School is important even if its a pro
2020-01-20 09:31
dont really know in which world you live but noone works till they are 80
2020-01-20 10:45
yeah true its still atleast 58-60
2020-01-20 12:33
it honestly depends on what level you play im fairly certain people who regularly play on hltv can save quite a decent amount of money

Well if you're successful enough, like Zeus, shroud, ceh9, you definitely will either have audience or money, and both these things can help you make money with streams/blogs or business. But if you are someone like WorldEdit... well, then you're in a big trouble after retirement
2020-01-20 20:10
Thats the thing, Tier 3 players surely dont receive the same paycheck as Tier 1 players, and if they are playing everyday and not work its gonna be a problem

Fucking hell, is this really the best roster Secret could sign on their debut in CS:GO? Literally all nonamers, no way they ever win anything or go anywhere but shitty Tier 3 LANs and 3rd places on qualifiers. One of the greatest DOTA teams of all time, and they sign this flaming garbage...
2020-01-20 07:44
These guys impressed recently and pretty constantly showed up against tier 2/3 teams. Don't overrate secret and their budget. Even if this team played 4vs5 without rigon it’d still have been better than their previous team.
