Probably the new super secret mod chat.So he uses Discord?
Aumm... WRONG! If people would have just left him alone 5 years ago, he'd be just fine!I wouldnt be surprised if someone does go after that lender upon seeing the hardship letter
What a fucking joke. His 'hardships' are his own doing and his life isnt 'hard'. Hes just lazy and entitled
Yeah but I doubt that's what happened. If I had to wildly speculate I'd say $1800 sounds an awful lot like the fees for a bankruptcy attorney.
That would make sense. It's just hard to believe a mortgage holder would buy his hardship bullshit given that his tax returns would almost certainly show income of >$100k. I'd love to look at his 2018 debt and 2019 debt lists.Yeah but I doubt that's what happened. If I had to wildly speculate I'd say $1800 sounds an awful lot like the fees for a bankruptcy attorney.
Pays his wife a salary from the “business”, she still won’t help with the bills, lolNahh perfectly legal as far as I know - just a quick easy way of getting cash flow back.
Worked for a dude in a small business once and his bimbo semi-exceptional Ukrainian wife was treasurer for the entire business and his 18 year old son was VP just so he could siphon tax free cash back to the homestead.
But I guarantee that’s what pools done here - there is literally no other reason to have her pay slips on his laptop - even if she sends him the payslips from the ???job??? She does IRL that’s kinda weird to save them on your desktop like that..
As an example of how good Phil is with money, look at his story of going to Evo. He says he spent his entire life savings and took out a credit card and maxed it out for the event.
Figure out the costs. A round trip flight to Vegas was probably a couple hundred. Evo entrance and registration less than a hundred. Hotel for let's say three nights, under three hundred. He said he didn't gamble or leave the hotel so no expense there. Food for one person, knowing Phil, three hundred. Courtesy shuttle from the airport. No rental car.
So at 23 years old, Phil went into debt after spending his life savings and maxed out a credit card for a $1000 trip.
Given the years he was going, even at its peak; the payout wouldn't have been more than a few thousand at best. The FGC has no doubt been one of the longest running competitive scenes, but has always maintained its poverty status while things like Counter Strike, Quake, and other games were taking off in the early days. This day and age, you see pretty nice (not big) numbers for games, but the payout always vary. You have a good portion of entry costs per player to go into the pot, and now-a-days, you'll have sponsors or game devs actually kick in money to a game's pot. In the earlier days, it was nowhere near as big as it is now; it was always grass-roots driven, had people on websites and IRC chats. Gonna keep a long story short, but the thing is, it was a lot smaller back then and the money being thrown around was smaller than it is now, and the money now is a pittance compared to the big e-sports titles. Then there's also the whole deal of where you get money; Top 8 is where the money is, and it's divided between them. For as long as I can remember, and they talked about changing it after this years EVO; the split was 1st-60%, 2nd-20%, 3rd-10%, 4th-4%, 5/6th-2%, 7/8th-1%. So even at his best, he'd get 4% of the pot for his Super Turbo run in 2005. Seeing how it was a long time ago, there's no way in hell he broke even on that trip; and while I'm not going to try and go through archives, he did win qualifiers on the East Coast, but I'd wager that EVO win was the best payout he had; unless he'd bully kids at locals for lunch money, which is doubtful. Even if he did get the 60%, in 2005, he may be able to break even, maybe, if he was frugal with his spending.Anyone know what the payout would have been if he'd have actually won the event? I'm pretty sure it wasn't lucrative enough to wipe out your life savings and then some.
True, but 78% of people in America live paycheck to paycheck.What a fucking joke. His 'hardships' are his own doing and his life isnt 'hard'. Hes just lazy and entitled
Can confirm that's roughly what we paid.If I had to wildly speculate I'd say $1800 sounds an awful lot like the fees for a bankruptcy attorney.
Or if he just put down money to give the CT Kahndo the equity so he can sell it, recoup some cash, and then put like 20% down on the WA Kahndo he'd have saved literally hundreds of bucks (over 1k easily) a month freed up for tendies and lotto tickets. But this is Pig, who autistically did his school work without trying to understand it at all (to the point I suspect mommy and daddy actually helped him a lot like usual) and proceeded to prove why sometimes kids need the shit beaten out of them physically or metaphorically to slap some humility or life perspective on them.In 2013 he was most likely debt free or close to it. In 2014 he bought his condo for what? 250k? Based on his unwillingness to actually pay for his condos I assume he didn't go with the 20 percent down payment. So he probably paid 30k or something. So he went from good situation into massive debt again in matter of 2 years. He also took out a business loan after copyright saga of 2015. If he had just stayed in CT until idk 2020 he'd he very wealthy right now.
Remind me what he could try and do in bankruptcy? I thought there was one version of it that he would have a harder time achieving due to the amount of income he has, but I can't remember.Yeah but I doubt that's what happened.

With chapter 7,you discharge your debts. They just go away. That's hard to qualify for.Remind me what he could try and do in bankruptcy? I thought there was one version of it that he would have a harder time achieving due to the amount of income he has, but I can't remember.
