Quote from foxw0w on the 8th of October 2016:
What you all fail to realise is that most of you pay more for ESEA league+subscription.
Yet with this you have access to tournaments with prize pools every week, like ESEA a pugging system which is still trying to be bettered with invite restrictions etc.
How is a business sustainable if it doesn't make any money? Stop being so quick to hop on the bandwagon of "cg is a money scamming website" and think before you type. Youre literally not even going to have to pay that much extra for your season and on top of that you get benefits...
Do not use ESEA as a comparative. Regardless of how much you pay for ESEA, in Open it's 10$ per player, 50$ naturally per team, the pug fee many people are happy to pay due to the quality of the ESEA pugging system, at the very least it's anti-cheat.
Premier, sure, a bit more dear, but the top two teams get all fees paid for flights and accommodation to a global LAN to compete against the best teams in the world.
Tell me that compares to the 4k first prize that CG offers in CS:GO CGp and I'll happily accept these new fees lmao.
