CLG has reportedly set a steep $500, 000 buyout for several previous players as well as their own coach, according to a study from Jared “DeKay” Lewis.

The list of names apparently included as part of the large cost are Steve “reltuC” Cutler, Kenneth “koosta” Suen, Ethan “nahtE” Arnold, and trainer Steve “Ryu” Rattacasa. The remaining players through the former CLG roster, Ricky “Rickeh” Mulholland and Pujan “FNS” Mehta, were supposedly not included in the $500, 000 amount.

The actual North American organization’s extremely high buyout cost is similar to that of FaZe Clan’s Nikola “NiKo” Kovac and Team Envy’s Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom. ScreaM’s record-breaking 2015 transfer from G2 Esports (formerly Gamers2) was approximated to be $160, 000, but NiKo’s rough $500, 000 purchase overtook ScreaM’s in February when he transitioned from Mousesports to FaZe Group. If another organization were to accept CLG's buyout price, it would likely signify the greatest purchase of several players in CS: GO history. A week ago, CLG withdrew from professional Counter-Strike completely, releasing both of its male teams-CLG Academy and the main CLG team. However at the same time, the organization additionally kept its female team. Apparently, the team cuts inside the CS: GO division of CLG stemmed from “financial woes. ” It’s possible that CLG has set the large transfer buyout sum to recover from its company losses.

As of late, reltuC, nahtE, and koosta have been playing with Ryu as coach, while under the team title Unemployed for Xmas. They’re currently trying out various talent from North America, but cannot compete in events until their contracts either run out or even are bought out, Ryu said upon stream Cheap CSGO Skins last week. Rickeh and FNS, however , will not be included in the brand new lineup. Rickeh wants to explore other options like a main AWPer, while FNS’ future is still unclear.

If a potential organization were to field the current Without a job for Christmas roster, it’s possible which they would also obtain North American region slot machines in both the ESL Pro Leagueand the ECS League. This really is due to the leagues' general rule that slot machines will only remain with a team if it keeps three players through the previous qualifying roster. Those available places would also explain the $500, 000 buyout price because of its members.

Ryu jokingly responded to today's statement on Twitter, stating that with the steep buyout price the team should right now call themselves “Unemployed for Easter”-which is actually a cryptic hint that their contracts may end in April 2018, if they’re not really bought out before then.
