CSGO professional players go public with CSPPA (CSGO Pro Union)

CS:GO professional players have officially gone public with a new CSPPA which aims to preserve player rights, serve as a union for all professional players and to provide them with legal assistance when negotiating new contracts. 

Quote

The Counter-Strike Database-Link-e1521645463907 Professional Players’ Association (CSPPA) has officially gone public, announcing its founding leadership board. The board consists of seven professional CS:GO players from around the world including Epitacio “TACO” de Melo and Tarik “tarik” Celik. Within the first year of operation, the association’s members will need to confirm this board or elect a new one.

 

To date, roughly 90 top players have joined the association. According to the CSPPA’s announcement on HLTV, “Any player who is contracted or actively seeking a contract as a professional Counter-Strike player and ‘who competes at an elite level’ is eligible to be an active member of the CSPPA.”

The daily operations for CSPPA will include legal council for professional players, assist them in signing contracts with new professional teams and negotiating brand new contracts. Døi sent a statement to HLTV regarding the matter. 

Quote

 

"As any other players’ association, we will work to secure the best possible working conditions for players in CS:GO, while of course taking into account the special nature of the industry," Døi added.

"In any sport, it makes sense that players can influence their employment conditions. There is certainly a huge difference in how CS:GO contracts are structured, and there will definitely be players that could benefit from guidance when signing them.

"Our goal is to represent the players in the best possible way and help the entire scene grow in a positive direction. We see a lot of possibilities for doing that."

 

How to join you may wonder? As long as you're contracted or are actively seeking a contract with a team and competes at "Elite level" is eligible to join CSPPA. The CSPPA will be reaching out to players to inform them of eligibility. 

 

Imho this will end up being a literal shitshow, unions for pro players barely work, even if they do they are run like hot garbage, I do really hope that this can be a thing, but I have my doubts.

And yet, lowly IT workers don't have a union.

 

I know we could use one here in Virginia.

What if they go on strike to prevent the players from going on strike - a counter-strike. 

 

My view on this topic consists of:

1) It's not a sport

2) I don't think they are badly done by considering a CSGO player is two-a-penny these days and they play games all day.

This isn't really much of a union. It's a cross-nation association, so it's more of a players coordination group. It should help bring certain standardizations to the scene, which is good.

How many eligible players are there?

QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Hundreds, thousands even, If you're playing at a professional level and or have experience in the pro scene (Premier / Major / Minor event history) then you'll be contacted by CSPPA from what I'm reading.

I'd like to see the books, genuinely interested how an organization like this can fund itself with the type of work it intends to carry out.

Mads Øland is involved; this could turn into a shit show. But the idea is sound if done right. Things are quite messy so maybe this'll help bring things in order.

 It kinda is, even I who played CS since 1.5 acknowledges it's too outdated nowadays, sure as a e-sports there is still no better game, however VALVe really forgot about it and left it in the past.

 

Just the fact it's still running off a 2003 game engine to this date should be enough to tell any one how much VALVe cares about the game itself... only the $$$$ matters.

No new content for years and has been losing players big time for the past two years, it's dead and buried, it's a corpse.
