SicK_cs grew up playing video games and enjoyed single player story mode games. However, once he got into fps games, he no longer found them to be as enjoyable due to the lack of adrenaline and competitiveness.
He started playing league matches in January 2015 and remained in the competitive CS:GO scene for about five year before he began feeling burnt out. His first foray into professional esports was in early 2016 when he was signed under Team SoloMid on to their professional roster for a year. In January 2017, he announced his departure from TSM in favor of joining Misfits. He also remained with them for a year before joining Rogue. He then transitioned to compLexity Gaming in March 2019. However, when his contract ended, he announced that he would be retiring from the CS:GO circuit in order to pursue fulltime streaming. He did this upon gaining a beta key to Valorant in April 2020. That declaration was short-lived, as he was signed on to Sentinels pro-Valorant roster later that same month.
According to SicK_cs’ Twitch overlay, he has around 930 subscribers and generally attracts over 5,000 viewers. This means he should be receiving at least $3,255 USD per month. Before acquiring further revenue from tips, advertising, sponsorships, his team salary, tournament winnings and Twitch cheer bit donations. EsportsEarnings puts his total tournament winnings at over $210,000 USD.
I feel bad for anyone trying to make it in the NA scene at this point, with the odds being stacked against you the way they are. Online CS is dying and you will gain very little experience against good teams. The path I took to "make it" probably isn't possible now.
