ropz's financial report gives insight into earnings

A financial report gave insights into the earnings of the Estonian superstar.

Details regarding Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool's finances in 2022 were recently made public by the Estonian Centre of Registers and Information System (RIK). The report was initially brought up by Reddit user u/Antichraldo, and includes information related to the earnings of a company set up in the player's name. Though the exact sources and distribution of his income aren't clear from the report, the figures likely involve his salary, prize earnings, and sticker money for the year in which the 23-year-old won three Big Events and a Major alongside his new squad.

The RIK report indicated an income of 40,673€ in 2022 from sources within the European Union and 750,504€ from outside the financial bloc. The European figure could include outstanding revenue from his time with MOUZ, such as prize money and wages from the late months of 2021.

ropz earned nearly 800,000€ in 2022 according to a financial report

The amount transferred from outside the EU would cover most earnings from his time with American-based FaZe, including prize winnings, salary payments, and the sticker money from the organization's appearance at the PGL Antwerp Major. The figures are likely not to include revenue from the last months of the year as tournament organizers usually take around three months to pay players and organizations.

ESL, for example, takes between 90 and 180 days for the payments to be completed according to section 2.12 of their rulebook. This only applies to prize money, and does not include how teams and Valve themselves distribute sticker revenue. The report could very likely include portions of ropz's sticker earnings received before the end of the year.

This means that prize money from tournaments such as the IEM Rio Major, BLAST Premier Fall Final, and BLAST Premier World Final could not be included in the 2022 financial report. FaZe also struggled to claim high tournament placements following the summer break, meaning the impact on the missing revenue from later in the year could be minimal.

It is also difficult to give an exact answer on how much ropz earned in prize money from 2022 as the public is unaware of how much FaZe takes from the total, and what the percentage is rewarded to coach Robert "⁠RobbaN⁠" Dahlström. Websites such as esportsearnings do not take these factors into account, and the value published of $358,016.67 in earnings for the 23-year-old is bound to include both the organization and the coach's cut.

IEM Cologne was the last tournament won by FaZe in 2022

ropz currently sits in the No. 17 spot of highest-earners in CS:GO in terms of prize money according to the same website, with total winnings north of one million dollars, of which a good portion came from FaZe's dominant first half of 2022.

ropz joined FaZe in January 2022, making his first-ever transfer in professional Counter-Strike after nearly five years with MOUZ. The move worked wonders from the get-go and the European mix quickly took over the scene with victories at IEM Katowice and ESL Pro League Season 15. Trophies from the PGL Major Antwerp followed, securing FaZe around $1,490,000 of prize money over the course of just four tournaments.

FaZe win Intel Grand Slam Season 4

FaZe's earnings recently skyrocketed in March following their victory at ESL Pro League Season 17 as the tournament win sealed the fourth season of the Intel Grand Slam for Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen and company. The Europeans took home a total of $1,200,000 that night, moving both Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard and Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken into the top ten highest-earners in CS:GO history.

Yes, and for some people salary is a private or at least delicate matter. It may just be the case for Ropz as well - the fact is that we don’t know, but we do know that people’s salary is something that many aren’t loud about. Therefore I consider it rather indiscreet or even a bit inappropriate for HLTV to post an article like this as if they were some paparazzi scum media writing about celebrities’ private lives.

People might not like to talk about it but it's still public information. I can go to my towns city hall right now and get information about all of my co-workers salaries and put it on the wall at our office. Of course I wouldn't do that but I just wanted to make a point. Everyone can get information on tax income.

I can since I'm elected at that position in my fackförbund/union but you can ask for some public information, yes. The following is public information: Decisions on taxation, information about registration in accordance with the Swedish Tax Payment Act and about special registration and declaration numbers, information on whether natural persons are registered for A-tax or F-tax, information on registration for employer contributions and VAT, corporate identity number, name and type of business or company (for legal entities). Is it not like that in Denmark?

2023-03-31 22:36
did you know the only reason ppl dont talk about salaries, is because companies dont want you to speak about them because you are all getting paid different. 2 workers do same job, other gets 2500 euros other one gets 2200, if talking about salaries were public and accepted, they would realise this and ask for money money. Companies want to keep it very hidden information to save money.

Literally a moronic reddit take. You say that either because you're a child and don't know better, or you're an adult that's lived a relatively sheltered life. The reason people don't talk about their money is because you (the other person) have no business knowing how much money I have, earn or spend. You literally have no reason to have this information. The exception to this are people in positions of power (i.e. holders of government office, highly public personas with direct benefits from the public sector and the like) to maintain a check on that power for the benefit of the general public, and provide transparency that this power is not misused for the further enrichment of the public persona and their corrupters at the cost of the immediate general public. Additionally, as you can see, the article isn't actually about what ropz's income is. It's about the revenue the company established in his name has taken in. This doesn't account for recurring operating costs of that company, any potential staff and so on. It is effectively guessing. Not unlike millionaire lists, such as that of Forbes, which are not operating on actual income statements of private individuals BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT PUBLIC. Beyond that - let's address the more general question: what is the point of this article? None. It simply exposes a private individual to the scrutiny of the wider public on misleading, or at best partial, information. This same information could've been obtained from the site (esportsearnings.com) the article cites as maintaining salary listings of players and that would be that. Why didn't the author of the article reach out to Valve, the tournament organizers or the organizations to confirm any of the claims made by either the cited site, or the author themselves? Because they'd be immediately told to fuck off really far away because of the above reasons (private information). At best, this article is in bad taste. At worst, it's reckless. This is the type of information that is paid for in the criminal world for target selection, i.e. individuals for robbery and extortion. This is why you don't open your damn mouth about how much money you have. But stick to that bullshit about companies not wanting you to talk to your colleagues about your money. That probably makes you feel like you're somehow libre and a free thinker in this world that doesn't know what's good for it. Fuck the fact that in virtually all jurisdictions that type of clause is illegal in a job contract that is not graded with some form of non-disclosure based on objective reasons (do read upon this).

Also, just to note - how's your argument work in countries that mandate publicly published job advertisements to also publish the salary range of the position? Additionally, if you think the companies decide to pay employee A one salary and employee B another and the employees just go "okay :)", you are either (a) a child, (b) have never been employed or (c) actually stupid. During a hiring process, you negotiate your salary. If you failed to negotiate a salary that matches that of another equally qualified employee of that same position, that is on YOU, not the company. You literally AGREED, BY SIGNING A JOB OR EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT, TO THAT SALARY.

"You literally AGREED, BY SIGNING A JOB OR EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT, TO THAT SALARY." and now I have more information and negotiate for a better salary. If someone deserves more money for the same job, because they have better skills or more experience, that can be talked about. But usually thats not the case, companies just take advantage of peoples lack of knowledge. And thats not good business practice, a well run business doesnt need to rely on exploiting their employees. Transparency benefits everyone in the long haul, arguing against it just makes you look tike a tool.

You seem to be confused. I'm not arguing against it. Nor did I ever said you couldn't discuss your pay. Of course you can and you should do market research for your job/position/role. That's part of job hunting. If you're not doing it - you're doing it wrong. The discussion is about WHY people don't talk about their pay or their cash flows in general, unless they're speaking to someone they specifically trust. This, however, is unnecessary if you live in a country that mandates job advertisements to include pay range. You then get to compare that to other employers to gauge what that skill set/position/role is actually worth to a business. To say that it is BECAUSE COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO is just dishonest. Failing to do the above, and then failing to negotiate for a higher salary, is on you, not the employer, because again - you agreed to it. No one forced you into lower pay. Also, having worked for 3 US Fortune 500 companies in the past 15 years, I can tell you that the notion that people don't discuss their pay is simply wrong. People DO discuss their pay with their colleagues as well. Not all, but generally they do, if you ask the question correctly and your intent is clear. But there isn't this visceral reaction to these questions that people like to image. If what #379 refers to was real (and it's not - it's comedy and exaggeration), you'd have people repeatedly locked up for assault.

"To say that it is BECAUSE COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO is just dishonest." Its not. This literally happens. Companies like amazon, walmart and others have it in their playbook to prevent employees from talking about their salaries. Going hand in hand with union busting and other shit. Companies regularly put it in their contracts, even though they know its not enforcable. So stop talking about whatever you claim to have done and show it in your posts. Because you sure as shit dont.

Don't know how it works in your country, but in mine everyones income/salary is publicly revealed. This is not just to expose possibly corrupted politicians but also to help others know what to expect in terms of salary from your employer. Otherwise you might get abused because you don't know. But that being said I think you have a point. This article feels kind of dirty, because the only reason you would write this article is to gain readers (because people in general are obsessed with money-).

Right, because Adam Ruins Everything doesn't prefix that with the disclaimer of "in American culture". If you're employed, when someone asks you how much you earn/are paid, is the first thing that comes to your mind "I better not say anything, because my supervisor/manager/boss might get mad". Are you meaning to tell me that you've never spoken to a colleague about how much you're paid? Have you suffered institutional repercussions as a result? I find that very hard to believe. Also, are you really subscribing to the idea that THAT IS THE ONLY REASON WHY PEOPLE DON'T TALK ABOUT THEIR PAY? That's absurd. Even the premise is non-applicable to most of the world, because people DO talk about how much they earn, so that pretty much counters that...

You are right about it being public information, but I do not agree that it should be "shouted" around simply because that's something private...

Public information or not, at least HLTV should've asked him before posting it (I hope they did), otherwise that would be kinda disrespecful towards him.

If your politicians had financial transparency like that, imagine how hard would it get to take bribes etc...

Of course, there are some arguments against it, but in the end I think it just makes more sense and builds a more trustful society in general, also it really limits the corruption options, and limits pretty much all shady money shenanigans in general... it's really hard to argue against that. It's not impossible, but really, really hard

Right to privacy and confidentiality trumps transparency in these things, in my opinion. That being said, I know Finland has public tax records and all that, so I see where you're coming from. Most people can estimate rather accurately a t1 player's earnings, so I really don't see the need for articles such as this. I personally wouldn't like people prying in my financial affairs.

dude you're the one who's clueless. It's his salary as well, faze isn't a legal entity in Estonia, so most likely they have a contract with ropz's company to employ ropz as a player.

3 replies
First, Faze does not need to be a legal entity in Estonia to be able to employ ropz. Second, we don't know whether ropz is an employee of Faze or he is working as a contractor for them. Either way, if ropz gets paid through his company by faze, that is a business to business transcation, so at the end of the day must be reported in the financial statement. Idk whats so hard to grasp about this concept

You don´t have to create a company to be employed by a foreign company. It´s better for Faze this way I am sure, and I would presume it´s better for ropz as well (tax wise). Not needed tho, legally. And yes, his salary is included in the earnings, but tax wise and legal wise it´s not salary but earnings, so he is correct.
2023-03-28 20:32

Stop making it sound like HLTV violated Ropz by posting this article. Its public knowledge and he has agreed to that so it makes no sense to talk about privacy. You can disagree with the ethics all you want and complain about the value of the article. Fact is that so many people are violated on behalf of Ropz and it makes absolutely no sense, since there is nothing illegal about what HLTV posted. I dont mind the article at all, I find it interesting to see what pro players earn.

2023-03-29 06:05
due to prize money inflation these kind of statistics heavily favour newer players. just look at the fact that get_right has half of bits earnings, even though he dominated the scene for as long as bit is a professional player. He also allready overtook the old fnatic core, which doesnt reflect their achievements at all. No disrespect to bit by any means.

Also giving this info to an average 5iq HLTV user isnt good, same as when people know how much EG players make and harrass them because of that

No? Faze won fuckton of tournaments and get tens of thousand in salary per month. Both of these were already know, thats it has to be well into six figures. What was not know is how high the numbers can actually go. I would very much find it interesting if somebody would shit him from earning 800k instead of 400k for example.

Good to know, as expected to be honest, but this info doesnt really need to be made public for ppl to see. Its ropz’s personal data even if made public legally.its not really ppl’s business to know anyone s earnings.

No need to make a report of such things. Yes, the information is public, but I can confidently say that nearly 98% of people who watch professional counter-strike are not searching for players' salaries through government websites. Salary transparency is great but you guys over there at HLTV should know that revealing someone's salary to a large community will have negative effects. Furthermore, what purpose does reporting just ropz's salary achieve here and what does this do for a consumer of professional counter-strike media? In my opinion, next to nothing.

2023-03-28 20:18
It's weird that they single out ropz for this article. If they wanted to make an article about pro earnings, they should at least cover like 20 pros from different teams and not single out one individual.
2023-03-28 20:19
1 reply
Its a rarity to have the transparency we have in the tax system. Also Ropz makes for a prime candidate for top-level earnings since they won so many matches and even the major which gives lots of sticker money. Ropz also played pretty much every tournament. There are maybe handful of players that may have made more money lats year than him in csgo. We don't really need to know how much every pro makes. But its quite important to understand how the top salaries are developing. For example it gives context to prize-money amounts or sticker-money or tranfer-fees or, well everything money related. Maybe they could have taken somebody else with some extra effort, just for context. But in my opinion that could put even more pressure towards ropz with him earing so much more than others. I don't really mind either way.

My take on this is that; We don't really need to know how much every pro makes. But its quite important to understand how the top salaries are developing. For example it gives context to prize-money amounts or sticker-money or tranfer-fees or, well everything money related. And basing it to concrete numbers is always better than estimates. Ropz is just prime candidate because he represents the top level money, not many earning above him. But its not about Ropz.

Idk why people whine that its personal info. IT IS NOT. He created a public company and its financial reports are public to everyone. Those reports are not personal tax reports which are classified. BUT for more spicy information. He has only one employee, probably himself and average net salary is 10 500 €. So he does pay quite a lot in taxes every month. For a net 10 500 salary you have to pay 7500 in taxes. Massive respect for that. But the point of this article is unclear since this report shows pretty much nothing. Those amounts could be from Faze "salaries/services", prize money or from some other sponsorship sources.

2023-03-29 09:24
Seems an unnecessary news post, whilst public information there’s really no need to raise attention to this. Having said that people spend enough time talking about the theory of cs finances that you can see why hltv have assumed people would be interested in such a post…
2023-03-29 09:42
If this report was only published on other websites and not on the CSGO town square (HLTV), maybe the impact to the player would've been minimal, it saddens me that a place where players are interviewed, talking about their mental health issues and the scrutiny they face, hltv still went ahead with this. Respect lost. It makes me sad that HLTV, knowingly and well aware of the mental difficulties that being a pro player brings to the players, still went ahead with this article ( even if the player didn't do anything wrong ) is still bound to shake him a little, he just got singled out on his finances even tho it's just speculative, that makes him a little exposed, no? This article serves 0 purpose when it comes to the game, the scene or anything in between, it makes me a little stupefied as to why this was even released in the first place, either: (a) HLTV lacks empathy and went ahead well knowingly this might affect the player in a negative way (when the article is just hay and has no point whatsoever) (b) HLTV is ignorant, (c) HLTV doesn't give a dam about the scene, the game and just cares about views. The fact that this was published with no purpose and with the last major of CSGO on the way makes me a little mad. We might've been denied a godlike ropz performance by HLTV and for what? Please do let us know HLTV. *ironic claps*

People acting like a sportspersons contract shouldn’t be in the public domain. One of the few things that HenryG did right with the colossus project. This is the second best thing we can have.

Everyone freaking out and losing their shit here is exactly why companies will keep getting away with underpaying every single one of their workers. All of you, or at least the ones old enough to actually be working, here.

Peoples think it will expose him because peoples get embarrassed by such high earnings and for good reasons, working 50hours/week in factory will not earn you more than 1/10 that he makes monthly. Ofc it will make peoples upset about it and some peoples are willing to hide it from others. I rather live in a society that doesn't hide earnings of the citizens that one that do.

CS players have a short career. And when they finish at age 30, unless they are one of the few to become a coach, it's not like they have the background required to make a whole lot of money for the rest of their lives. So let's be glad that at least some players like ropz can make enough money to give him a comfortable life.
