30-year-old Australian former CS:GO player Chad Burchill, known as “SPUNJ,” had lastly played for Renegades in between 2015-2016. Currently, he is a freelance analyst for the tournaments.

A few days ago, on his official Twitter account, SPUNJ shared his thoughts about the prize money and wondering if there should be money for all of the teams who are attending the LAN.

Here is what SPUNJ said:

“Thoughts on making tournament prize pool distributions more top-heavy? Not sure why we still give teams who are coming last prize money. It’s so small in most cases it’s pretty much negligible. On top of that, gone are the days where teams needed that money to cover expenses.”

FaZe Clan coach YNk replied:

“I’m all for it, no reason someone going 0-3 in a tournament should be rewarded, perhaps you can earn prize money per win with a bonus for making the next stage. Teams get travel, accommodation and food from the TO, so don’t think getting 2.5-5k for last place is really relevant.

Maybe you still keep it for T2-T3 tournaments since you could legit have a team without an org make the qualifier and for them that money would actually be significant but I think a change would be good for T1 tournaments”

Co-founder of ENCE, Tomi replied:

“50% for winners, only playoff teams get paid.”
