Beyonder555 (23 days ago)
One of his players gets paid about 700k per year.... Nadeshot, being the CEO most likely makes at least double or triple that.

I went to high school with Matt, and ended up playing a lot of Gears of War with him on gamebattles (started the clan UYC [unplug yo controlla!]). I remember him always asking me how my Guitar Hero gaming was coming along and genuinely being a real nice person. I'll never forget gaming with him before he was Nadeshot and going pro. So incredibly happy for him and the rest of his professional endeavors. Thanks for being a huge part of my gaming past. Nade is the fuckin' man.

It absolutely broke my heart when he was talking about his mother passing, something I wish no child should go through. He is very tough mentally which is not that easy. This video made me respect Nade, dude is clearly a good leader!
Oscar (1 month ago)
Nadeshot knee when to step down and even tho he struggled, he was able to win and understand his time was up. Others like Censor need to learn from Nade. Good video, inspirational.

All the nostalgia!!! I remember watching nadeshot play back when no one ever knew competitive cod existed!!! He is by far the most humble and successful entrepreneurs from the gaming scene and I’m so proud to see him make it! Rip to his mom she would really be proud of him too! Didn’t know he has a LOL roster but to hear their success is awesome too!

Ethan Peters (2 months ago)
Morale of the story, Optic were assholes to Nade from the start and never really gave him a break. Sidelines, to ultimatums. To blaming him for their losses. They were so mean to him that he left for greener pastures
