Coach accuses orgs of “stealing money” from players with skin revenue

valorant champs skin

The Valorant Champions skin bundle was the first of its kind. For the first time, organizations and players got a taste of Riot’s cosmetics sales.

Riot split the proceeds of the skins 50/50 with the teams who qualified for Champions. The only problem was that it was up to the organizations how they distributed their money.

According to Upcomer, only two teams – Cloud9 and Vivo Keyd – gave most of the money to their players.

Sentinels and Team Envy did a 50/50 split while all the rest of the teams took the bulk of the money – to varying degrees.

The orgs who kept the highest percentages include Acend (75%), Fnatic (80%), Team Secret (85%), and X10 (100%).

It was these teams that prompted a tweet from Lucas Rojo, head coach for Movistar Riders.

“Some orgs out here STEALING money out of players,” he wrote. “Skin revenue is not prize money. X10 receiving 100% of the Champions Skins is an absolute disgrace.”

Lucas has a point. Without the players, these orgs wouldn’t be in the position to make any money from the skin bundle.

Orgs like 100 Thieves, that didn’t make Champions, never got a dime. That had nothing to do with Nadeshot, it had to do with the roster underperforming.

At the time of writing, none of the orgs have made a statement on the matter. Several other pros have replied, such as G2’s AvovA with a simple, “wtf.”

Imagine, life changing money and you don’t get ANYTHING. What a fucking meme.

We’ll keep you posted if any of the orgs respond to the backlash.

We could even be set up for a spicy Twitter beef between some of the orgs with a player-friendly split and those who kept most of the money for themselves.
