APEX LEGENDS STAR IITZTIMMY REVEALS WHY HE TURNED DOWN TSM STREAMING OFFER

WHAT HAPPENED?

Apex Legends Twitch star Timmy ‘iitzTimmy’ An has reportedly turned down an offer to join esports giants TSM.

The streamer revealed that despite joining the organization being his “dream”, he’s “not sure” if he wants to join a team.

Do you want the truth? I have an offer from TSM. So then you’re going to be like ‘but wait Timmy, why don’t you join TSM?’ I have a lot of offers, chat, from a lot of orgs. It’s not like a flex or anything, but I’m not sure if I want to be in an org. It’s an honest opinion.

“”

I don’t want to say those reasons why on stream because that ruins the perspective of orgs in general, but as a content creator ⁠— especially someone as big as me ⁠— what can an org do for me? That’s the reason why you join an org.

“”

There has to be some beneficial value. That’s money, but the funny thing is orgs don’t really pay you that much. Some orgs don’t pay enough, their sponsors block what I want as sponsors.

When I got my TSM offer, it wasn’t that the offer was bad, but I’d gotten to this point as a streamer where I felt like I didn’t need them. There’s that passion to join these orgs ⁠— TSM, NRG, Liquid, there’s so many of them ⁠— but why do I want to join them?

 Timmy did set a price tag that he would sign for any org on the spot: “If someone is going to offer me a million dollars for a year to sign for an org right now, I’ll do it.’’
