Crimsix Claims He Was 'Underpaid' With His $380K Salary

Crimsix Claims He Was 'Underpaid' With His $380K Salary

As the most winningest Call of Duty esports professional of all time, Ian "Crimsix" Porter's stock is better than many, even if the previous two seasons haven't quite gone in his typical trophy-littered fashion. So when roster negotiations ensue and contract numbers are crunched, you can hazard a guess that he'll be calling for quite a bit more cash than his respective competitors.

Well, despite not winning a thing for in the Black Ops Cold War season, Crimsix's started another venture at New York Subliners, and managed to secure quite a bag.

But not to be one to be outclassed in anything that he does, Crimsix has now admitted that while the entire league is being vastly overpaid, in comparison to some of his peers, he himself was being sold short of a few quid.

Crimsix Confirms $380K Call of Duty League Yearly Salary

With rumours that Crimsix's now former organisation and teammate Paco "HyDra" Rusiewiez are bartering on a potential $1.5million three-year deal which would result in him being the second-highest paid player behind Seth "Scump" Abner, Crimsix has shared his thoughts on the inflated market.

Speaking on The Flank, Crimsix spoke about how the teams in esports are having a troubled time dealing with inflating salaries while the world's economy struggles to recover from the pandemic. He especially pointed out that this is a rough year for CDL teams too, given that there is a record number of free agents (approximately 33 restricted/non-restricted players from 60), and players are weighing up offers in bidding wars.

The three-time world champion then continued to detail what his yearly salary was at New York Subliners last year, simply saying, "380", coincidentally $10K for every major championship that he has won. 

However, the $380K isn't Crim's biggest total to date though, as he added, "Before I was dropped from OpTic, I was literally expected to make almost double that. On Modern Warfare (2019), that's how much I was worth." 

 

Crimsix Claims He Was Underpaid In Comparison To Other Players

Despite his hefty wedge, Crimsix wasn't happy with his sum, considering that other pros with less to offer than himself. "Nowadays there is no leverage for players," he said. "I'll be honest, we're being overpaid, big time. But, I was definitely being underpaid."

"There's players that were getting $400K. I ran the numbers. I had 56 times more followers, 38 times more championships, and some of these guys are getting paid that much. More than me."

He then claimed that the $380K was roughly 60% of what he should be getting, in comparison to other players, before insinuating that everyone else's should come down, in retrospect.

Crimsix will likely be looking to evaluate the market when looking towards his next team, if he doesn't retire, that is.
