Team Liquid player Jake Stewie2k Yip spoke about the tough schedule of matches and tournaments in CS: GO. On Twitter, he complained about the morning official meetings and, in response to criticism from fans, said that in the current situation, esports players have to put up with an unstable schedule.
“Fuck the matches at 10:00. If it’s that simple, why don’t you do it yourself? Or can’t you? I am not complaining about my position, but about the huge number of tournaments with matches at 10:00, 12:00, and even at 15:00, the lack of time for training and other problems. “
After the first report of the morning matches, many CS: GO fans made fun of Yip for complaining about what they perceived to be minor issues. At the same time, the position of the Team Liquid player was supported by other e-sportsmen.
Anthony Vanity Malaspina from Chaos and his former teammate Owen smooya Butterfield tried to explain the situation. They said that the teams physically do not have time to prepare for such meetings, and the players cannot give their best due to the violation of the usual daily routine.
Stewie2k tweeted about the difficulties with the tournament schedule after losing to Evil Geniuses at ESL Pro League Season 12.
Engin MAJ3R Kupeli from Sangal Esports joined the discussion, started by Team Liquid member Jake Stewie2k Yip. He recalled that cybersportsmen make money on the game, and stressed that only for this one already needs to be grateful. At the same time, mousesports captain Finn karrigan Andersen disagreed with the Turk.
“Guys, listen, I think you don’t know what we are doing. We fucking win money playing video games. You just have to get up at 10:00 and play… People get up at 7:00 and go to work until 21:00 their whole life. Stop complaining from scratch, don’t go to bed at 6:00, watch your sleep routine.
Many did not have a real job due to their early age. But reality can kill a person mentally. Some people don’t understand that we got a chance to play and have salaries. God blessed us, of course, you have to get up at 10:00 and play. “
Karrigan entered into a dialogue with the Turk. He believes that the work of an esports player is still highly stress-related, especially given that players often receive threats.
“In the days of university and normal work, 100 thousand people never followed my every step. If I am tired while playing, threats will start coming to me and to my family. “
The Dane objected to MAJ3R that it was impossible to change his schedule overnight and still play at his peak. “For the best result, you need the best shape,” Andersen concluded.
