It's time for the latest segment of Esports Transfers, WePlay Esports' new independent platform designed to answer some of the most important questions in the industry: how much are esports athletes worth? How much does it cost to transfer a player? Do organizations overpay for their players or not?
We conduct an in-depth analysis of both statistical and in-game data, through which we obtain a result that is accurate to market value. The calculations are based on five different points: leadership, marketability, stability, skill, and demand. It's worth noting that each point is composed of various sub-factors as well.
The star of today's episode is non-other than Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski, OG's sniper. Born in Poland, mantuu moved to the United Kingdom at the age of 5 when his family relocated in search of better working opportunities. As a child, he played a lot of football and videos games, namely Call of Duty and League of Legends. He was eventually introduced to Counter-Strike by his friends, and joined his first amateur team, n0_0rg, in 2015, where he met Dustin "DuDe" Großmann. The pair would play together for the better part of four years, playing on n0_0rg, Entropy Gaming, PANTHERS Gaming, and finally ALTERNATE aTTaX. Amid his time playing in the German scene, mantuu was actually a rifler, anchoring down bombsites and only really using the big green gun during double-AWP setups. He won a number of German tournaments, such as 99Liga and ESL Mesteirschaft, especially while representing AA.
After performing really well in the tier 2 scene versus German and international squads, mantuu was approached by Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen, who were in the process of assembling a team for the legendary Dota 2 organization, OG. Understandably, mantuu was quite surprised by the offer given that OG was looking for a primary AWPer, while mantuu had only ever been a hybrid player in the past. Still, he welcomed the challenge with open arms. With his teammates being Valdemar "valde" Vangså, Issa "ISSAA" Murad, NBK-, and Aleksib, mantuu was by far the least experienced player on the squad. However, OG's investment immediately payed off with the rookie posting a 1.15 rating at first tournament with the international squad, cs_summit 5. In fact, accross the 303 maps he has played for OG, mantuu has averaged a 1.13 rating. While nearly half of his kills in OG have been with the AWP, the 23-year-old has proven to still be very deadly with the rifles and pistols. OG certainly struck gold when it signed mantuu, a promising player who was destined to play in the upper echelons of Counter-Strile, but the question remains: how much is mantuu worth today?
