Popular streamer Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang isn’t holding back on his first venture into the VALORANT esports scene.
In a livestream on Monday (16 January), the Taiwanese-Canadian content creator revealed that his team, Disguised (DSG), currently costs about US$500,000 a year.
This is higher than the US$300,000 grand prize that LOUD, the winners of the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) 2022, received last year.
Disguised Toast said on this stream that this was significantly higher than what he had budgeted in the first place, which was about US$250,000 to US$300,000.
When pro player Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik asked Disguised Toast about the players’ salaries in a co-stream, Toast told him to guess, and he’d tell him if it was higher or lower.
Subroza consequently asked if his players are paid US$5,000 per month, to which the DSG founder said that the amount was “higher than that.”
Disguised Toast’s team is led by former 100 Thieves and T1 player Josh “steel” Nissan and coached by former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro player Kyle “OCEAN” O’Brien.
The other four players are Damion “XXiF” Cook, Drake “Exalt” Branly, Joseph “clear” Allen, and Amgalan “Genghsta” Nemekhbayar.
The team quickly proved that Disguised Toast was right to believe in them after qualifying for the VCT North America Challengers.
