Analyst Duncan Thorin Shields spoke about pricing in the professional CS: GO scene. On Twitter, he stated that team owners prefer to spend large sums on star players rather than buying ready-made rosters. At the same time, the clubs had the opportunity to buy a potentially strong lineup for $ 4-5 million.
“Evil Geniuses bought the current roster for $ 3 million, and some organizations are asking for a million for each star player. This summer, the potentially strongest super team in CS: GO could be bought for $ 4-5 million – all the clubs refused. On this stage, they only know how to chat.
The owners of CS: GO teams would rather overpay for a can of soda than invest more and save on the distance by opting for a full two-liter bottle. Much worse, in this situation, they are confident that they have spent less and are happy about their business success.
“But now it is much more expensive!” Not. It’s more expensive to pay six-figure sums each year to average players who aren’t even in the top 10. It’s much more expensive in the long run. “
Thorin did not specify which “superteam” he was talking about. The analyst also did not begin to indicate specific clubs that have a similar transfer policy.
Evil Geniuses bought out NRG Esports CS: GO roster in September 2019. The full roster was rumored to have cost $ 3 million. Clubs did not confirm this information.
