It's pretty insane that when we tried to buy out niko from mouz in kinguin/g2 the price was around 40k$ and faze bought him for 500k$+😵(1)

G2 / Kinguin had attempted to form a strong team. Ofcourse internal conflicts within Mousesports meant that they refused to let go of Niko for a small price. They were bent upon extracting the maximum revenue from the player who had behavioural conflicts with certain members of Mousesports.
