HLTV fantasy has always done it that if you pick a player from a certain team and he gets replaced, you get the replacement instead. Picking AMANEK for 180k would have been way smarter cause you could've gotten NiKo for a cheap price
yeah I wasn't aware of the actual rules. like the jerman brother pointed out above, there was a pretty big advantage for those who knew that your players can be replaced. so picking amanek would let me get niko for cheap.
