Ocelote responds to accusations of inaccurate income

Ocelote has provided onGamers with a statement in response to accusations about inaccurate income numbers.

Yesterday, onGamers published an excerpt of an interview with SK Gaming Managing Director, Alexander 'TheSlaSH' Müller in which he claimed that Carlos 'Ocelote' Rodriguez Santiago's claims of making 600,000 Euros per year are inaccurate. Stephen 'Snoopeh' Ellis responded to the statement indicating that Ocelote had artificially inflated his salaries and social media platforms.

onGamers reached out to Ocelote for statement and was provided with the following response:

Regarding that income topic, it's pretty simple:

Nobody except me and my accountants know the sources of income and where is all being invested in. And will keep being this way, as I'm not here to teach people how to make their companies or fan bases grow.

Would be pretty silly thinking you know how my companies profit.

Especially when sometimes they are working under my 'playground', business-wise, without even knowing it.

Changing topic...

I can't help but cringe, seeing how a Club or a Player react when their par is doing better.

When an organization needs to devalue a player that left them, in order to get some value back... Then you know the bottom was reached.

Same example goes for players that use the same mediocre marketing strategy, using the hypocrisy with mother tongue English skills to enchant the crowd.

My Father always told me:

'There are two ways to succeed in life,
One is working your ass off,
The other one is leaving corpses behind.'

I use the first one, and it's going pretty well actually.

Meanwhile others spend their hours trying to devalue others, I spend mines building my future and growth.

With a smile in my face, bringing smiles to all those around me.

At the end, they are harming themselves and they don't even see it.

Said this, stay tuned, the evolution of peripherals is on its way. Never seen before.

By the way, where the hell am I and what am I gonna do with all these empty square meters?

I wonder how many League fans actually care about this topic? I personally don't, and the more people keep talking, the worse everyone looks in my opinion.

You can't counter shady stuff by talking even more shady stuff. Fail

I feel like this just made many people look petty, jealous, and foolish. Also, is it possible that maybe there was a loss in translation, that when asked "how rich are you?," Ocelote heard "how itch are you?," and his response was "600,000-700,000 anally," but with his thick accent and the context, we heard "anually" as in income? I think we can all celebrate the fact some LoL pro players have made an outstanding living with their fame, and that as the scene grows, more do as well, and that the minimum is also raised. Otherwise, we're all just butthurt and could also use some rectal creme.

I did not see the original interview. but the severe lack of tact at the end of that response. wow.

E-sports players really need to start taking some notes in how professional (traditional) athletes compose themselves. If Kobe Bryant, for instance, had put together a letter like that, he'd have destroyed his brand, and done sufficient damage to his career.

Next time just stop after "nobody outside of myself and my accountants are privy to my current financial situation."

Now pivot, turn your statement into something positive, and at the same time get some free promotion.


" I'm currently looking to grow into (these new areas)"

" My fans can look forward to me doing (some activity) in the near future"

if you're really butt hurt and need to address the specific persons in your response. give them a short and vague "fuck you".

" I don't know what would cause (person yadda yadda) to say these things, but wish them the best in their future endeavors."

DON'T talk about hypocrisy, mother tongue, or walking over corpses. AND DO NOT take a photo of some house on a shitty day, at least wait for the sun.

Lol the problem is, with the above comment, is that you didnt see the original interview. Which is very easily found. You are talking about kobe bryant. If a group of media came out and said, "kobe lies about his income, there is no way he makes that much" im pretty sure he would respond in a pretty similar way. Plus youre comparing multi-multi million dollar a year athletes to an esport player. I think he had to right to say what he wanted, basically saying, you dont know where my income comes from, and you dont need to know, and you will never know, but in the mean time, look at my house. peace.

well played ocelote.

are you kidding me? kobe bryant would tweet some shit. obviously dannygraves doesnt know anything. he reminds me of myself when i was younger and i had increased my vocabulary and writing skills. i would go on the internet acting older than i was by being a smartass, just like him, even though i didnt know how to write properly. if youre going to bother with that, learn how to use proper grammar and punctuation, learn all the writing rules. otherwise, dont go out telling someone they responded to an accusation improperly. wtf? who does that? idiot wannabes.
