"after all he still is a top IGL on the market"
and thats the point. igls are scarce commodity and they know that. look at col and aleksib/blameF case...btw sure, we dont know how his contract looks like but it will be more or less like all other contracts with performance clause, bench clause etc etc. there are only few players that can actually make silly demands and im like 100% sure that alex who came from t3 ldlc and got a chance to play on t1 level isnt(or wasnt when he signed with vitality) one of them
/edit btw look at those orgs...c9 is esport org with the highest network, geng is 7th. faze is also rich AF so why would they ask for 300k or something? i mean you have washed up players like snax for 300k and you would ask the same for the best igl on the market? why?
