It feels strange calling it “eSports” when I think of what kids are earning these days. I clearly got into competitive gaming at the wrong time!
I played as an Engineer for AK47, for Team Fortress Classic. We won the Wireplay UK Championship one year, that was pretty cool.
I also represented Finland for Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004. Yep, Finland. Despite not having Finnish blood or having ever been to Finland. Things were a bit more relaxed back then!
I have a career earnings of around $3000. I don’t want to think what it may have been today.
