low costs in general, "Central" europe to work with ping
cheap good and frendly people and more secure than the top eu countryes in this days people respect the autorities also
We have bad ass food, most pretties girls, best night life in Europe, cheap life expenses, our hospitality and service are always on point, we have excellent geo-position and almost every second Serbian speaks english.
It is cheap, no travel restrictions (but harsh restrictions in other ways), decent/good infrastructure for esports and you get low ping to all EU servers, which mean you got a wide pick of scrim partners, all from UK, Iberia, CIS, Scandinavia, central Europe etc
The most cheaper country in europe is still Ukraine, especially internet quality, even rusian teams last time bootcamping here.
everything ppl said already plus good night life
just look at NiKo, cold and ynk
I mean, 3 out of 6 people from faze live there ( Ynk, niko, cold) and for the other teams, its insanely cheap and they have good lan centre like relog media ( not sure if the name is correct) and its central in eu which gives good ping in almost every match
best girls, good food, good ping, and for a fair price.
most serbians speak english
>Cheap for foreigners
>Good looking girls
>Good food (also cheap)
>Nightlife is good
>Clubs are if not the best in most of EU
>Most of the new generation speaks English
Overall its good here.
Belgrade is not as cheap btw
Cuz it's cheap and no visa issues, cuz no EU
Non of what people said
but it has 99.9% to do with travel restrictions/how to get into Europe etc.
the main reason is probably related to EU factors since the EU is closed, it's harder to get into.
Then there's prices ... outside Poland and Bulgaria i don't think any EU country can be labeled as cheap.
Ukraine is closed also, so that is not an option either.
Because it doesn’t use schengen visa days which they save for later for tournaments and if they spend time outside EU for 180 days they get another 90 day stay.
Very cheap, less restrictions,not that Bad of a ping and ofc its not part of EU so there is less traveling problems.
I would take Copenhagen or Stockholm instead, but thats just me I suppose.
Because they didn't have immigration sanctions, at least that's what FalleN said, he couldn't get into other EU countries aside from Serbia
The European Union is closed to Americans and Brazilians, so they have to pick one European country that isn't member of the EU. Serbia is the best option available as they don't have as many restrictions.
People forgot the most important thing. Serbia as a country is not part of the European Union which means foreign players won't have to bother with visas and other things related with this virus. It's a relatively cheap country, we don't have ping issues, nightlife is great, people are warm and if you spend enough time around us you will become a chad like Lobanjica.
obv serbia removes kebab that's why 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎
Yea best place for cheating :P
pretty sure Faze use Serbia since Ynk, NiKo, and Cold are already there plus a bit of convenience I guess
it's proven to be good for other teams
it's cheap, belgrade is a huge city, good internet etc.
Because best country EU Keepo
Everything is cheap and internet is good and cheap too so thats why I guess..
I asked myself too but here are the reasons when you sum it up:
Relog is one of the best internet caffes on balkan they have tournament equipment
Internet is stable and good if your playing on german server around 30-40 ping
Real estate is cheap 300€/month they can find a penthouse for 600-800€ a month with a pool etc
Food, drinks everything us very cheap for western countries for us it isnt becouse we earn from 300-500€ /month but if you are from na its very cheap
+belgrade is a huge city and it has alot of stuff for them to have fun etc
With their paychecks everything is so cheap
because NiKo invites them to party
It has loose restrictions compared to EU members, it's cheap and the internet is decent.
cuz serbia is a great country and way safer than london berlin paris etc
2nd best serbia after bosnia&herzegovina
Because Serbia is great place for partying and it is also crap cheap ;)
its cheap,nice girls and alots of places to go out at night,alot of ppl around the world comes to serbia just for parying
everything people said but also
as far as i remember first was FaZe and i think its because niko ynk cold already in Belgrade, on top of that NiKo YnK are friends with owners of Relog and relog is providing everything a top tier team need for bootcamp
after FaZe it was 100t probb cuz of kassad
than g2 prob cuz nexa,hnt etc
and than obo rush, MiBR, imperial... prob cuz they saw that place is legit deal
Cause its pretty cheap to rent and its not as bad as people might think.
Serbia might be a good country, but Croatia is better :)
