JW asked why he hasn't gone pro — now the FPL-star ropz answers

1
The Estonian star Robin "ropz" Kool is getting called out daily for cheating by professional players in Faceit Pro League. After a comment from Jesper "JW" Wecksell blew up on Reddit, Kool decided to host an AMA on the site where he answered Wecksells comment.
Robin "ropz" Kool is the Estonian seventeen-year-old who got into Faceit Pro League in January this year. Kool has during his time in FPL proven that he can challenge most of the pros in the league, yet still hasn't decided to become a pro player himself despite receiving several offers. Instead, the 17-year-old has decided to focus on his education, rather than advancing his career as a CS:GO professional. As a result, many pros commented on his decision, and have begun calling him out for cheating. Fnatic AWPer Jesper "JW" Wecksell commented about Kool during a FPL-game, and also provided a further explanation via a Reddit comment.

"Okay so let me explain it a little bit better, i expressed myself abit clumpsy cus of getting rekt so hard (16-3) but here is what i think about it:

It annoys me that someone that is this good, dont take the chance to jump on a team, (really good teams have asked this guy), he is getting firstpicked all the time over the best players in the world, he can become the best player to ever touch the game and obviously also earn money that "kids" in his age can only dream of, to me there is simply no logic behind not joining a pro team and going full time CS in his spot. He is playing like 10 FPL games atleast per day anyways, so the time is obviously there? Why not take 1 year off school to try it? I did and it paid off.

Im actually putting down alot of time and work to make FPL a good progress and something we all can be proud of, to find the stars of tomorrow, but with people turning down some of the tops teams in the world, in my opinion they should not have a place in FPL, just my two cents.

Also its kind of the MEME in fpl right now, as soon as he kills someone, you instantly calls cheat, no matter how bad the kill was or not."

As a result, Kool created an AMA via Reddit, where he talked about his path to FPL and how his parents learned more about the scene in order to support him. According to the 17-year-old, he has received offers from a number of Tier 1- and 2-teams, but that he can’t leave school for them as they can’t guarantee any stability in the long-term. He claims to have a number of pending offers from organizations he is still in discussion with.

When asked about being called out, he replied that it proves who has more experience in the scene. He explained that those who accuse him of cheating have been a part of the scene for an extended period of time, while the new pros support him. The comment from Wecksell attracted much attention and users asked for his point of view.

"I respect what he and some others do, to help the platform, but it's wrong to twist someones words and make your own conclusion. I know that kids my age can only dream of what I could potentially achieve and that's why I'm trying to find a good solution for this, which could benefit my future the most. I also understand his point, of taking off 1 year in school and try CS, which eventually worked for him. Though for me if I was to take 1 year off I wouldn't be able to return to the same school and things can go downhill very fast."

According to Kool he has two more years left in school, and if he leaves he may not be able to return to the same school again. Instead he’d be forced to study at the Estonian equivalent of adult education. "If you enter this type of school you’ve somehow chosen the wrong path in life," says Kool, which means that society looks down on you and without the education it’s hard to get even the easiest of jobs.

It is common knowledge that in sports teams generally have a material home advantage. Some of the impacting factors are the lack of travel – which is far, far more substantial in North American sports leagues, despite involving mostly domestic travel, than in Counter-Strike – having your team’s support staff and functions available at all times, and most importantly, friendlier whistle (i.e. referees).
