He loves food, so he added his initials to the end of the word.
foodVW started playing Counter-Strike in early 2013. After high school, he attended college. While there he did a year-long internship. He really disliked it, which motivated him to try harder at his pro-gaming career.
He has been part of the NA CS:GO scene since 2016. He joined Team Singularity in October 2018 but left them for Swole Patrol in January 2019. However, this was short-lived, as he and two of his teammates transferred to eUnited a month later. He remained with them until they disbanded the team on May 6, 2020. He simultaneously announced his retirement from pro-CS:GO. He did so because he realized that tere were more pro-opportunities in Valorant than in CS:GO at that point.
He then went on to join T1’s Valorant team a week later. They released him on September 3, 2020. Fortunately, he was signed with Team Envy on September 14, 2020.
According to foodVW’s Twitch bot, he has around 290 subscribers. As he generally attracts over 3,000 viewers to his streams, he should minimally earn him $1,015 USD per month. This is before taking into account the additional revenue he gets from tips, tiered subscriptions, sponsorships, advertisements, his team salary, tournament winnings and Twitch cheer bit contributions. According to EsportsEarnings, his lifetime winnings are at over $84,000 USD.
In order to be a top player for a long time, you have to be able to adapt to different metas. And if you are stuck in one meta, your playstyle just becomes outdated.
