NBK no longer playing with Guardian for DH’s qualifier
Portugal LADY_NINI - HLTV.org 
Things have been tough for Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, last week he was benched from OG. This week, despite assembling a roster with the likes of Guardian and Calyx, he won't be allowed to compete in the open qualifier of DreamHack Masters Spring tonight. Do you think these rules could be more flexible somehow? Source: twitter.com/NBK/status/13674685138672762..

Og will be part of the DHM spring, so he can not play, like other pros that have been bench like (Roej, Hoxie, and kristou)

He is still under contract with North, but he can play like roej, because their team will not be part of the DHM spring.

Yeah but I've never been a fan of general punishments or "rules" because there is a slight chance, except when it's about serious matters where it could go seriously wrong.
2021-03-05 23:30
Well OG is waiting at the next stage so it kinda makes sense he cant play tho
2021-03-04 18:21
i guess OG would be really happy if they could stop paying his wages and release him from the contract.

If OG released NBK then he could play, but instead they are keeping him on the bench so he can't play.

idk ask him. He obviously was willing to be, but they didn't allow him. He loves the game, and wants to continue playing.

nbk doesn’t need the money, he has been a pro for so long and he’s still playing after the salary inflation, i’m p sure he wants to play dreamhack because he wants to compete

Yeah could it be because twist wasnt ever going to play in a tier 1 anymore and no tier 1 orgs wanted him.

2021-03-04 18:53
do you even know how contracts work you basement deweller? They just can’t release him on the fly. Players themselves ask to be released. It’s more like nbk is planning his steps while he sits on the bench. twist had already decided what he wanted to do

#39 Plenty of orgs release the player immediately and let them decide their career. OG are greedy little rats who will punish NBK, and so we should ban AleksiBot from all CS events as repercussions.

WTF he is their player they are paying him. Same with GuardiaN his contract wth NaVi expired just few days ago so he couldnt play but they payed him. But the thing is hate the rules not orgs
2021-03-04 20:42
I think if someone is benched he cant play till the end of contract ;)

2021-03-04 19:10
Makes sense and its not even OG's fault that the rules say this The least they could do is release him though, then he can get straight into another team, OG dont have to pay him and save money for better players later on

Yes!
2021-03-04 18:55
They already do like loaning right? The issue is that not orgs will want to try and do this, and it isnt like sports where you can just slot generic players for another one, in some instances a team will need a specific type of player to loan
2021-03-04 19:14
Yeah but unless there's a clause, I don't think he can really/or would want to get out of the contract, even OG who can get an payday off his Buyout.
2021-03-04 19:07
1 reply
Yea 100% its in his interests to be paid on the bench rn, gives time for his buyout to drop in 8-10 months whilst he can improve himself or start working on igl'ing again Probably not in OG's interest though, I only see another French team wanting him and with the combination available rn its possible that such a team could get top20 but struggle finding an org

SAD! But make sense. Would be weird if bubzkji would play for another team, or nbk and then face OG/astralis etc, easier to just ban everyone, no reason to complicate shit and go case to case.

the difference is they have pretty much kicked NBK from their roster. They should just release him and let him play
