Hate to break it to ya, but people in Asian countries also like physical sports a lot more than e-sports. The best Korean baseball players are much more popular than any professional gamer in Korea.

If the cost of living was so great, they wouldn't be able to afford bringing their girlfriends over for a free ride. They'd be doubling or tripling up on rooms in a much smaller house. You make horrible assumptions despite the info that is available to you and make statements on other things that you have 0 info on.
Hello child #2, as it turns out Curse didn't buy or rent ****, their manager is a millionaire, and it's his place. They are all getting a free ride.

The TSM house is not a mansion, and if it was paid for by money made from gaming at all, it was likely from streaming money, as that's where the majority of their income comes from which they have stated many times. Same with CLG, Hotshot has been the most popular streamer for years now, and it's where most of his gaming income came from.

NO PROBLEM

"not enough to live on" can mean "not enough to afford payments on my NSX, my 4 bedroom 2 garage house with pool, live-in maid, the dinner parties i throw..."

come back with real data or shut up. that's all
I'm sorry I didn't realize you were mentally handicapped until just now. Sorry for arguing with you. Want some crackers?

so you're going to tunnel that i called it a mansion and completely disregard the fact that both tsm and clg have houses that are MUCH bigger than they really need. On top of that, it's not curse's "manager" that owns that house. The owner of curse owns that house and as the owner of curse, curse technically DID buy the house and the league of legends team uses it. Despite what the majority of their revenue comes from, the fact still remains. They didn't stream for months. Their time streaming doesn't cut into their practice time, because if it did, WE'D SEE THEM STREAMING. Herpa derpa.

it's not hyperbole when people say the asian teams eat sleep drink and breathe the games they play. if you can't match that drive, how do you expect to win?



no. the asian teams will all live together in a one bedroom apartment if they have to and still get the practice in. it's not sponsor money that's stopping the american teams from performing, it's ambition
So what you're saying is, American teams should just stop making money? That's moronic.

LOL how the hell did you come to that conclusion? He said that asian teams have the drive and dedication to be the best and you come around and interpret that as american teams shouldn't be able to make money? wtf ROFL.
