I know nhat nguyen has ten years of experience under his belt, and is only 23.

I'm interested in a different statistic: Who holds the title of oldest professional league player? That is to say, is a part of a competitive team and earns any income annually from it.

Even if it's not a very strong team, to be in the top 10% of League players is enough for my criteria. Give us middle-aged players some hope of keeping up with the best of the best!

Does anyone have any clues or info about older players who play professionally?

Could you imagine in the future if pro gamers were like 40 or 50? I mean, video games as an industry have been around roughly 40 years (depends what you consider a video game) competitive gaming I'd give 12-15 years max. When pro gamers grow up what will happen to them? Will they still even play? Will it work like that? In truth we don't know, we only assume one day they'll grow up and move on, but what if E-sports grows and they could justify staying?

Team ROMG of KR was made of people in late 20's~mid 30's playing LoL in their spare time.

They made it to 16's in Azubu summer champs.

Not gonna happen. Twitch muscle deteriorates.

Now if Master of Orion or Galactic Civilizations became an E-sport, maybe.
