Neither did G2 buy NiKo for 1.5 mil but for half this figure actually

Shox's one is most likely wrong as well
"Vitality closed one of the most expensive buyouts in CS:GO as they bought out Richard “shox” Papillon from G2. NeL reported that Vitality paid somewhere between $350,000 and $450,000"
Device is 1 mil for 6-8months, that's the thing
