Mom and Dad are fi- agreeing, again?

Money is the root of all evil. And by that, we mean VALORANT teams spending more than CS ones so taking all the good NA talent.

Anyway, FACEIT's Product Manager was talking about how he thought it was wrong to incentivise people to play FPL with money, because that's not really the point. Which is... fair, actually.

If you're in esports for the money, you're in it for the wrong reason. Not... not that we would know.

An ESEA representative agreed with them, which was cool, but strange. It's like seeing the Gallagher brothers agreeing, or KFC retweeting a Burger King advert, or someone who knows what they're talking about complimenting this newsletter.

Both of the organisations appear to be moving money away from pugging and more towards team play - cash cups instead of Rank S. The idea being it makes the scene better, as people learn to grow  as a team and not as an aimer.

Cool idea, or a waste of time?

We love the idea, but we're not sure how much of an effect it will have.
