Heroic & Tricked in conflict over JUGi

The Danish AWP player JUGi has signed a contract with Heroic that starts from January 1st 2018, the owner of Tricked says. As a result of this JUGi has been benched in Tricked, and they will be signing a replacement as they do not wish to develop a player that is set to leave their team.

Since Michael "Friis" Jørgensen was benched in Heroic the Danish team has been using Casper "cadiaN" Møller as stand-in, but he is not the player the team really wants.

In an interview conducted by Dust2.dk, the owner of Tricked, Morten "Phy" Jensen, says that the owner of RFRSH, Nikolaj Nyholm, contacted him to purchase Jakob "JUGi" Hansen. The transfer hasn't been completed yet, and according to the interview it probably won't happen.


JUGI will probably never wear the Tricked jersey again. 

Phy does also say that JUGi has been benched because he already signed a contract with Heroic starting on January 1st 2018. HLTV.org have translated the interview below:

Tricked is currently playing without JUGi and the rumors connect him with Heroic. Can you clarify the situation?

We are contacted by Nikolaj Nyholm ang. Interest of Jugi from heroic's side, and it was of course we need to act on. At the time, it's about 5 days since we had our last team meeting where we talk plans for the future vision and so on. So it surprised us a little when Jugi turns back and says he wants to leave for Heroic.
We then move on with the dialogue because we want to be fair to Jugi, even if it means another sales to our direct competitor in Denmark. The negotiations, if one can call them that, is pretty fast to the ground, and it ends up out of nowhere. We therefore choose to benches Jugi while all this is going on as we could tell there was friction in the squad, which of course is understandable, as we experience our second 'setback' in 6 months.
We have subsequently found out that Jugi has signed with Heroic per. 1 / 1-2018 which means he will most likely not going to be a regular part of our squad going forward, as does our desire less to develop a player that we know who slips to the New Year.

We were contacted by Nikolaj Nyholm regarding the interest of JUGi from Heroic's side, and it was of course something we had to act on. At that time, it was about five days since we had our last team meeting where we talked about the plans for the future, vision and so on. So it surprised us a little when when JUGi turned his back to us and said he wants to leave and join Heroic.

We moved on with the dialogue because we want to be fair to JUGi, even if it means another sale to our direct competitor in Denmark. The negotiations, if you can call them that, get stuck and it ends up in nothing. Therefore we choose to bench JUGi while all this was going on as we could see there were some problems within the CS:GO squad, which of course is understandable as we experience our second 'setback' in six months.

Subsequently we found out that JUGi has signed a contract with Heroic that starts from January 1st 2018 which means he most likely won't be a regular part of our squad going forward, and we do not want to put in our effort to develop a player who will leave us.

In the end of 2016 you sent niko the same way. Is this just your place in the food chain? Is Heroic a bigger team than yours?

We don't think so, but RFRSH have been quicker to establish a more lucrative setup. It's unfortunate that we haven't been able to convince people to have more confidence in our plan, we had been a contender for top 3, if we had been able to keep niko back then.

Why can't you keep them? Are the contracts too small? What do you think is the reason for the players to favor Heroic over Tricked?

I definitely think the contracts were too small if we look back at the deal with niko, and there was also international opportunities for him within a short period, which wasn't in the view with us. We roughly know the salary level now, and we can match it going forward. We had some players who were really 'hyped' after our last meeting as we raised the salary once again before the negotiation period. I think JUGi chose Heroic because he thinks the opportunities are bigger over there and he has some good friends in Heroic.

What is the status of the transfer between Heroic and Tricked right now?

Right now, I doubt anything will happen. They have used stand-ins with great success, so I don't see the urgency for them to acquire JUGi right now, and they have sabotaged our success again, although it probably wasn't on purpose.

You choose to use the word sabotage. Don't you think Heroic have been fair during the process?

No, I don't think so, but I don't have further comments to that subject.

Can you describe the process seen from your perspective?

For us, it has been too chaotic and messy. It made some unnecessary noise that you should be able to plan your way out of. Moreover, there has to be an understaning of the elements of sport here so these situations don't end like this.

I feel at least the player owned teams lack a little structure in situations like this.

How does the future look like for JUGi if the transfer doesn't happen?

He still has to earn his salary, but it will probably be through PR work and streaming, as we are already looking into other player options. We spoke to JUGi before he signed with Heroic, so he has been completely informed with this.

What stops the negotiations right now?

The price.

Can you be more specific about that?

I have seen several write that we want $150,000, but that is not true - our price is below that. We think the price we have set is more than fair for the biggest AWP talent, which also has some of the best ratings on HLTV.

When do you expect to present a replacement?

Within 14 days.

After the interview with Phy was done, HLTV.org contacted Nikolaj Nyholm for a comment about the conflict between Heroic and Tricked:

"Needless to say, we’re happy that we have been able to sign one of the most talented players in Denmark from 2018 for Heroic. Right from the start, Heroic have have been a top 20 team with the potential to become top 10 worldwide. We have a clear strategy in regards to profiles and players to include on the Heroic roster, and I am confident, JUGi will be a perfect match in this context. 

JUGi will be a part of an international top side, and he will immediately be a part of a team on the international scene. At the same time, the RFRSH set-up provides facilities and an organzation, designed to help the individual players and thereby JUGi, the teams and the sport in general and to elevate the sport to a higher level on all parametres. My basic belief is that this is to the benefit for all, including other teams and players. Our mission is exactly that: To contribute to the Development of the Danish and international CS:GO scene by providing resources, physical as well as organizational wise, which ultimately will support Building an even stronger base for CS:GO on all levels.

Our general policy is not to comment transfers, contracts or any negotiation details, but we do want to make it clear that we only offered JUGi a contract for 2018 after it became clear, we would not be able to come to an agreement with Tricked for a transfer in 2017 and after Tricked benched him. We do things in an orderly fashion both in regards to players’ conditions, teams and in our organzation. This is also the case when it comes to the signing of players and any negotiation thereof.

I would like to stress that we in no way have been out to ”sabotage” any other team, as it is mentioned. This is not and will never be our purpose. On the contrary we strive always to talk to our colleagues in other organisations like North, NiP, Virtus Pro etc, in regards to developing the sports together. You will also see competing teams, Danish and international, use our new facilities for training, bootcamps etc. We truly see an interesting future for the sport and in this perspective all teams and organisations play important roles."

It seems that JUGi has to wait 11 months before he returns to playing official matches unless Tricked and Heroic find a solution.

+1 its ridiculous. Nobody gains from this. Tricked will have him on salary for the next 11 months, Jugi's chances on a toplevel team is most likely ruined and Heroic won't get the AWPer they want. Fucking triggers me that Tricked refuse to realize that they are a feeding team to the top teams in Denmark. So they get stubborn and refuse to sell to a rival competitor.
2017-02-08 16:54
+1 +1, fucking ridiculous.
2017-02-08 17:09
"I have seen several write that we want $150,000, but that is not true - our price is below that" From the way the Tricked owner expresses himself on the topic, I wouldn't be surprised if the price was $149,999. Anyway it is seriously ridiculous. Their lineup will change in a year anyway, so bench a guy for a year because he will leave after that is just pure BS. They obviously want to get a TON of money for him and this a way they will do it. Pressure Jugi so that he will pressure Heroic to help him and buy him out.

He prolly signed a contract till the end of the year and a better team gave him the opportunity to rise once the contract ends. Why would he refuse ? Tricked CEO is just acting like a total dick

It might seem ridiculous.. But I am sure it's just a business strategy, to get more money for Jugi.. And since Heroic ain't buying the bait immediatly, i'll bet they will reach an agreement on the halfway, within a couple of weeks. Like you said: nobody gains anything from the current situation, so both parties wan't to find an agreement:)

Yes, I also expect this to be solved within the next month or so. Similar situation with Dimitri Payet. West Ham also refused to sell him even though he didn't wanna play for the club. At first, they wouldn't let him go because because he wasn't cooperative (and acted like a kid frankly)Eventually though West Ham came to their senses and realized it didn't make sense to have a valuable player like Payet to sit n rot on the bench. So they sold him to Marseilles and everyone was happy. I expect the same to happen with Jugi.
2017-02-08 20:41
"Subsequently we found out that JUGi has signed a contract with Heroic that starts from January 1st 2018 which means he most likely won't be a regular part of our squad going forward, and we do not want to put in our effort to develop a player who will leave us." How does it not make sense? Why would you have him play on your team if he is leaving anyway and went behind your back to do so? Oh and the org who tried to screw you wont pay the buy out you want... Why would you want to reward a player or org for going behind their backs to swoop up one of the best players in Denmark? We would never do xyz to hurt an org... Yet we went behind that orgs back and signed their top player for a contract and then tried to buy him out for less then he is worth for the year hs is in contract with you.. So dr what is your roll in the heroic org? lol How are tricked being stubborn and unwilling to sell? "We moved on with the dialogue because we want to be fair to JUGi, even if it means another sale to our direct competitor in Denmark. The negotiations, if you can call them that, get stuck and it ends up in nothing." They tried to negotiate. Heroic went behind their back and signed him for 2018 while at the same time trying to negotiate for him in 2017. That is shady AF. They clearly wont pay the buy out fee tricked are asking for. So, here we are. In what possible way is tricked wrong here?

I agree that it was super dumb that Jugi signed a contract 11 months from now. First of all it's kinda BM to tricked who are trying to negotiate, but also considering anything can happen in CS 11 months from now. And yes, Tricked has every right to not sell him, but I think it is stupid that tricked wants to keep a player who wants to leave? why? they gain NOTHING from it. Neither does Jugi or Heroic. Everybody loses because Tricked refuse to realize that they are a feeding team for the bigger teams. From an outside perspective Tricked appear as stubborn and non solution oriented. Like they would rather stick to their principals rather than finding a solution where everybody wins. I acknowledge that don't need to sell him but I dont understand tricked's logic behind keeping an unhappy player. They gain more $ by selling him now for a high price rather than waiting until his contract runs out and letting him go for free.
2017-02-08 22:32
I bet his contract was about to end 2017 anyway, so he just wanted to make his future a bit safer. Which is fine by me. You don't give him a contract for 2018, why couldn't he find one of his own.

thats what happened with neymar, he signed a contract with barça and only left 1 year later, so he played the fifa club finals against barça, already signed by barça
2017-02-08 16:38
i think its different when you buy a player but leave it on loan at a club, lets imagine heroic buying jugi but letting him play until end of 2017, that would make sense, but i dont think neymar signed contract with barsa 1 year before going there without santos knowing that?

2017-02-08 17:34
No. Just contact the CEO and buy out the player's contract. Remember the controversy between SK and LG?

Argument was: "Why would we invest in player who is already leaving." + Smth like that already happend with them in past with niko. I completely understand Tricked. Players can go fck them self, without organizations they would still be in MM in moms basement. U have contract with Tricked, and they can either let you play, or not. Ez as that.

Well, if you dont care about the org of the team then they are back to square one, flippin burgers on mcdonalds and praccing CS at night, cant attend any tournaments cus if they travel abroad all the time they need to take vacation from mc donalds job literally 30 weeks a year, and then get fired so they live on the street instead. Orgs are the reason CS isn't just an online game, orgs are paying for the fun, so you cant just ignore them, then they will ignore you as a player too. no benefit for nobody.

Of course, it's unethical, to say the least. Imagine if you own a company, and your best employee signs a contract with another company without letting you know... you will invest your money and time to a guy who has decided that don't want to work for you anymore. That's exactly what JUGi did! The same happened between Luminosity and SK about FalleN's squad.
2017-02-08 17:57
But an employee invests in your company and your business, not you in him, lol. HE MAKES YOU MONEY AND NAME. And still, it's his rights to leave, because your contract with him ends before 2018.
2017-02-08 18:05
The Company has a plan, and the employee is a part of It. If you plan to move to another Company, no problem, you can do it, but be man enough to not do It behind the scenes.
2017-02-08 21:19
Why do you think it was made behind the scenes? He signed it for 2018, because owner of Tricked doesn't let him to go to better team now, obvious. And it means owner knew about situation days and weeks before.

He did contact his org though. They tried to negotiate a price for jugi, and since tricked wants 250k$ (i know he says hes not that expensive - he's lying) Heroic said no, and then he went off to sign the new comtract from 2018. If thats stupid from jugi, thats another question - but he didn't go behind trickeds back.

I mean (if what I heard is true and his contract was about to end in 2017 anyway), why not. By the end of the year, after such a long time rotting in a noob team like Tricked is, Heroic might not even want him anymore. As long as he was not tied to Tricked for 2018, I do not mind him signing the contract at all. If his tricked contract was also for 2018+ and he still did what he did, he's a dick.

between 500k-1mill, so close enough
2017-02-08 18:06
Seriously...? That's ridiculous lol. He's a newer player on the scene, good awper but he's not world class just yet.
2017-02-08 16:22
dude above me says it isnt true, so im not sure. but everything above 200K dkk is ridicilous for a player this "new" in my opinion.
2017-02-08 16:24
Yeah I thought someone like JUGI would have a 15-20k USD max buy out tbh.
2017-02-08 16:24
would make more sense, but they probably just wanted a ridicilous buyout because heroic keep taking their players. first niko, now jugi. but it's sad for the players that they have to deal with this. now he has to wait a year to be able to play for a team, and he wont be playing for tricked in the meantime. a year in cs is a long time.
2017-02-08 16:26
rumours are it's between 70-150k USD
2017-02-08 17:47
Yeah just a crazy amount to pay for a player like JUGI... He's good but he's not a god tier player just yet.
2017-02-08 18:02
esports is an ever growing industry and it definitely has attracted a lot of interest and investment in DK. Compare it to Neymar's Barcelona deal.. He was only a talent playing in the brazillian first division but still sold over 100mil €.. If that really is JUGI's worth we have come a long way since 150k USD ScreaM to Titan deal..
2017-02-08 18:16
Hmm there might be more investment but we are years and years behind football type money, especially in terms of player worth. I get your point but that type of money I don't think is worth it just yet.
2017-02-08 18:24
of course we are 100mil euro and 150k dollars is a hell of a difference
2017-02-08 19:34
Disagree. Neymar was already a reality when Barcelona bought him. He already was brazilian best player and lifted Libertadores trophy, the biggest title possible for a South American team.
2017-02-08 21:29
let's then compare it to the XXXX amount of talents being bought for over 5mil€
2017-02-08 21:50
no it's not :) just look at k0nfig's trade from CPH Wolves to Dignitas when we was "unknown" :).. and thats over a year ago.. Times changes, a player in k0nfigs kaliber would be sold for far over 200k DKK today

it is "too much" considering he is still somewhat unknown, at least internationally. having good stats on HLTV can only mean so much, considering hes playing against lower tier opponents compared to other awpers. considering that scream went for 150K dollars when he was at his best, it's just absurd to want anything between 70-150K USD for a talent that barely has proven his worth internationally yet. the only reason why the buyout is so high is because tricked feels heroic is taking all their players, which is understandable to some degree, but it's still stupid that jugi has to be benched for 11 months to be able to play again. either lower the buyout or let him play for tricked for the duration.
2017-02-08 19:48
Are you a moron? It's obviously not a far stretch when for example the standard salary has grown up to triple the amount it was back then.
2017-02-09 16:26
For a talent that hasnt even proven his worth internationally yet? Yes it is. The entire FaZe squad was bought for 700K including coach (I think?), is he worth just as much as those type of players? No lol.
2017-02-09 17:38
You fail to see the rate that money is growing in CS. It's exploding at the moment where players have standard salaries around 20K USD a month before sponsors, streams etc. is added in. When Scream got bought for 150K, people were bragging about having the highest salaries at 5K and we can assume that if Scream was peaking atm his price would lay around 500-600K
2017-02-09 18:05
It's not that long ago that FaZe was bought though. Wasn't it in 2015? Possibly the biggest year of CSGO, at least major-wise and viewership while gambling was booming and such. But yes, I guess with the recent additions with the 76ers and other football/NBA teams getting interested in eSports, the prices are are going up rapidly. But this is a deal between two top 7 teams in Denmark. If prices really are that huge right now I understand why a lot of orgs don't want to buy anyone out of their contracts, because it's simply so much money for one single player. I even remember C9 commenting about this months ago.
2017-02-09 18:35
Ask yourself, which other country has a scene like Denmark? You have a great scene where talents gets to test the waters and international exposure. However if this was the Norwegian scene I'd be surprised if the buyout was even 8-10K. In CS:GO a month is almost a year, you can't compare to stats from 2015, 2 years later.

2017-02-08 17:38
how can you know it was behind their back? if his contract ends in 2017 (as I heard it does) it is basically none of their business. and what is that shit about "not putting effort into evolving somebody that is about to leave in a year"? it's not like he is sitting on his ass not doing anything - he plays under the Tricked banner and everything he does, every crazy shot he hits, he hits in Tricked's name, so wtf

It all comes down to JUGI's contract, there's no moral punishment in this story besides benching him, a decision which actually makes a lot of sense. Heroic didn't want to buy him out of his contract, so the contract is still in place. They can't just cancel his contract as this would be against Danish law. (There is possibly a way to do this, but I'm sure they would have to pay a huge settlement).
2017-02-08 17:56
it's like every sports, they are saying this to show they want the amount they said and heroic will have to pay. Actually i would be with tricked on this one, signing contracts behind org backs, you can't complain about the result being bench , as tricked said they loose a good player so i doesn't favor them, all this situation favors heroic so he's right to bench jugi and ask for money. How moron will it be to release a player that worth money and give him for free?

Jugi got benched before the contract was signed. He got benched as the negotiations started, and since their negotiations didn't go anywhere, heroic signed a deal with Jugi starting from 2018. So basically Jugi got annoyed that he got benched for no apparent reason other than that Heroic was interested in him.
2017-02-08 17:42
that's not what they said on itw but , even if you were right about this, it doesn't change anything.

Well, why keep a benched player for 1 year (Also 1 years full salary because he talked with another org??) Problem solver 1: Sell him to Heroic Problem solver 2: Release him from contract instead of keeping him benched and ripping his CSGO carrier so he can sign for another org. My guess is that Tricked will go for Problem solver 1.
2017-02-08 16:29
well obviously but they want to make it last for heroic so they will agree to pay more They probably wishes to have him for IEM Katowice so they might start to pay very soon

>they have sabotaged our success again No? That's why contracts are able to be negotiated, or you let them buy your player out. No one is forcing you to bench JUGi for nearly a year. What a messed up situation for JUGi
2017-02-08 16:25
sabotage because you had a team for future plans and your player will not be part of future plans, in result your young talent is being bench for signing in another team , you want to get ride of the player but there is a right price , probably heroic is playing on this fact that he is bench so they want him for much less than what tricked want. tricked isn't wrong here what they are doing make sense.

Pretty sure that anyone will sign a contract with tricker after shit like this :D. Just what others org with MORE AND MASIVE MONEY they just realize the player o sell it fairly We think the price we have set is more than fair for the biggest AWP talent, which also has some of the best ratings on HLTV. ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahahahahaha

But if CSGO is to ever be taken seriously, contracts needs to mean something. Otherwise this is all a joke. Signing a contract with a player that doesnt start in 11 months, considering the unstable nature of the cs go scene, just to push down the asking price is however a fucking disgusting move.

Denmark LasZe 
If CSGO is ever to be taken seriously, contracts should be negotionable, so if antoher organisation offers a player more money then his current organisation should match the offer or sell him at a fair price. Trying to buy a player free from his contract, failing to come to an agreement and then signing a contract with the player that starts when his current contract is done. How the hell is that a disgusting move? The only disgusting move imo is that Tricked benched JUGI, "because they do not wish to develop a player that is set to leave their team." IN ALMOST 11 MONTHS FROM NOW!!! WTF??? They have plenty of time to accomplish something with JUGI on the team for almost a full year before moving to Heroic....
2017-02-08 17:27
it's not disgusting move it's the right move, you have to learn your lesson. for the contract part , you are quite funny.
2017-02-08 18:18
So the richest teams should just be able to outbid the owning team on salary and pick up the best players in the world? Yeah that sounds like an amazing idea. A Saudi billionaire comes in, decides he wants a winning team. Says he wants Fallen, Cold, Simple, Device and Snax. Offers them $500k a month. GL to the existing teams. Its fine to sign a contract when the other one ends (although rules should be implemented to prohibit it being done this far in advance) with the intend of picking him up at that time. Its not fine to do it just to be able to push down the price, which is what being done. With the way CSGO works, its not even certain that Heroic has a team in a year, at least not a competitive one. Not saying that they wont but in no way is it certain, meaning that they wouldnt sign Jugi and Jugi wouldnt sign for them unless they were fairly certain that they could use his signature to drive down the price. EDIT: As to the price. We dont know what it was. There are rumours yes. Whatever the price is, its obviously what Tricked considers fair. Heroic doesnt seem to think so. Who then decides what is fair?
2017-02-08 19:21
they probably set that date because that's when the tricked contract ends lol, "just to push down the price" u wot m8? if tricked release jugi instantly then he would sign another contract with heroic for 2017 as well

2017-02-08 16:33
This might be the most ridiculously petty shit I've seen in a while. You won't release a player from his contract, but you also won't let him play with the team either? It's ridiculous that Tricked are playing the victim here. They're upset that Heroic are trying to "steal" their player, yet they aren't even using him because of it. The only person getting hurt in all of this is JUGi. This is the ugly side of CS, unfortunately.
2017-02-08 16:34
ugly side? he has signed a contract. By the looks of it his team is making an example of it as to not have situations like this in the future.
2017-02-08 16:39
Did he sign a contract that effectively removed his ability to play for his team if he was approached with another offer? Do you know what's in that contract? Do you know the rules therein? This isn't about him having a contract, it's about punishing a player for looking for other options. Get a clue.
2017-02-08 16:44
rofl, triggered much. Exactly, he has a contract with them now, meaning they can choose not have him in their starting lineup if they don't want to. Why should they let him play with them when they know that he doesn't want to play with them anymore once his current contract is up? It's his own fault for signing a contract 11 months in advance without thinking about the consequences
2017-02-08 16:47
You made an asinine statement without any correlative evidence. He signed a contract 11 months in advance because they wouldn't transfer him. Which is whatever, frankly that was a stupid decision on his behalf. But make no mistake, they were going to do this to him even if he hadn't signed that contract. And while it may or may not be their purview to bench him due to him searching for a new team, it's still dirty business. Tell you what. The next time you go looking to find a new job, think about if it's fair that your current employer could dictate not only that you can't move up to a better position, but that they could effectively ruin your experience on your resume for an entire year. Let that sink in.

2017-02-08 21:38
That's the entire point. Very few industries bind people to term-contracts in the same manner as CS. It does happen (for instance, government contracts here usually are term-specific). Now I'm not stupid, I realize this is mostly a sports specific situation. But often players get their contracts terminated in these kinds of circumstances. But, also, when teams bench players they are usually required to still cover their salaries. Tricked gave a statement that seems very dubious in this respect, and that's pretty silly if they agreed to pay him a salary but are dictating terms outside of what he agreed to (which may or may not be the case, actually, but I'd be surprised if there are clauses saying that you can't earn salary if you're benched).

Moron he signed a contract that starts after his tricked contract is over tricked is the party involved that is causing all the problems. If tricked really wanted to resolve this and not tarnish their brand they would release jugi from his contract or sell him not bench him for 10 months ruining his career. What they are doing is childish and will hurt them and jugi more than heroic.
2017-02-08 18:54
My biggest issue with this is that they're benching him for the rest of the year, which is absurd. There's no way both parties can't come to a reasonable agreement at this point. Why even hold on to a player you don't want to use?
2017-02-08 20:12
Indeed he did, but he is still under contract with them for another 11 months, and if they don't want to field him in their starting lineup during those 11 months then they have every right not to. Dick move or not, they are in their right to so, as players should be aware of when they sign contracts.

Denmark dR_JaCkPoT 
Exactly! This will most likely ruin Jugi's chances to ever play on a top level. All due to Tricked acting like a stubborn little girl.
2017-02-08 17:02
I don't know why Tricked think this is a good idea. The only thing it's going to do is discourage other players for wanting to sign a contract with them. While their reasoning seems sound (bad chemistry in the team), it's really just an excuse to keep a player from improving later down the line (why develop a player who will leave us). That development statement alone is crazy to me. No one should anticipate a player staying within an organization indefinitely, it just doesn't work that way. If it's a detriment to develop a player who might leave you, why have a team at all?
2017-02-08 17:08
The problem that apparently no one knows, is that Tricked is owned by "Lars Seier" who is a big shot in Denmark. The organisation won't accept players leaving for better teams, making it impossible for themselves to be a topteam in Denmark.
2017-02-08 18:27
It has nothing to do with Lars Seier. It's the CEO (Morten) who wants Heroic to pay up, as they got Niko really cheap a few months back.
2017-02-08 19:52
I mean, I'm not going to speculate on the reasons. It's just a really silly situation, you know?
2017-02-08 20:13
But why would the rest of the team want to play with him, as he obviously wants to leave? In that sense, the benching makes sense. Regarding the price, etc. I have no idea, that's entirely between the two orgs.
2017-02-08 20:34
I'm not really questioning why the team should want to play with him, it makes sense why they wouldn't. But it's also silly to keep him in contract with those same people for 11 months, for no reason other than because someone didn't pay a sum for his transfer. I mean, they're talking about how he has to earn his salary through things like streaming and PR? You think that's a clause in his contract? I mean, this is the main issue here: none of us know what that contract entails, and who's to say that Tricked are even honoring their end of it? The bottom line is that they are willing to lose money on keeping a player around that they don't even want representing them in-game. None of it makes sense. The only reason I can see them doing this is they're hoping to leverage his buyout, and frankly that's a bad reason (I get this is a "business" thing, but if North call their bluff they're stuck with a player they have to pay for 11 months, which doesn't benefit them at all).

someone whose contract ends by the end of 2017 + a person who kinda wants to ensure his future, because rotting for another 11 months in a noob team like Tricked with basically little to no chance of improvement could very well mean the other better teams might very well lose interest by the time your contract ends.

In case if his previous contract ends in december 2017, and he will play in new team from 2018, transfer price is 0.00 because player is free at this future moment.
2017-02-08 17:56

Perhaps Friis had a contract that expired and they didn't want to prolong it? I have no idea how it works, but I imagine 12 or 18 month contracts aren't unusual.

11month What the fuck just release him ffs #FreeJugi
2017-02-08 17:17
sounds more like Heroic are pretending they are not in fault, yet by signing JUGI they are just trying to force the matter and putting pressure on the org. To try to say they are pushing players forward is laughable, they are just buthurt and don't want to pay the price. Go Tricked!
2017-02-08 17:21
also bit surprised their contract allows the player to sign another contract (even if its in the future)
2017-02-08 17:23
2018 WTF Lmao, this team will not even exist until there
2017-02-08 17:26
Why would they sign a contract that start after a full year? It doesn't make any sense for JUGI or Heroic. The whole e-sports scene is so volatile. There might be no Heroic in 2018. What if they scout some upcoming AWP-talent in the next 6 months? They might not even need JUGI after 11 months. And Tricked? They might not exists either in 11 months. Why don't they just use JUGI for the next 11 months and take full advantage of him? The whole thing doen't make any sense.
2017-02-08 17:32
RFRSH Entertainment represent four brands within Counter-Strike: Astralis, Heroic, Godsent and Norse. Over the next two to three year they will add €27 million to the project, to make their teams more successful (paraphrasing). business.dk/digital/dansk-e-sport-faar-k.. I don't think Heroic are gone the next year.
2017-02-08 17:42
its just about HEROIC putting PRESSURE on TRICKED, by using the player. and then trying to be the good guys...
2017-02-08 17:47
Jugi is gona get a guarantee salary for the next 23 months. Anybody would sign that. Easiest money he will ever earn in his life.

Phy is just such a fucking retard, who doesnt understand that tRICKED isnt a top 10 contender - and would never be. This reminds me a whole lot about the inzta case in some FACEIT qualifier. Inzta had asked Phy when he got replaced on the roster - if he could play faceit etc, just with mixes and so on. Phy had agreed to this, with absolutely no limitations. Inztas contract with tRICKED obviously says something different - but Phy being the owner gave him special permissions around this. As in, they had a written agreement. The mixteam inzta played with, went on to face tRICKED in the qualifier - beating them - and then it became a problem for Phy. He started threatening inzta with a lawsuit if they didnt forfeit the game. Fun fact: They did forfeit in the end after Phy being a dick threatening to ruin inztas life - but tRICKED didnt get to proceed beyond that round. Fuck Phy, and fuck tRICKED.

2017-02-08 18:12
Thats exactly why I cant take him serious, exactly because of that faceit qualifier bullshit that happened with Inzta some months ago. It's such a scumbag move to bench JUGi because he wants to sign with Heroic in 2018. Bench him 11 months? What the fuck. He can't play anything remotely competetive during those 11 months. The only reason why the benched him is because they are salty and want Heroic to buy him out of his contract and if they won't they're just gonna bench and ruin competetive CS for JUGi for the next 11 months. What an outstanding organization.
2017-02-09 02:21
If its true about the FACEIT qualifier, then any respect I might have had for the tricked owner is gone. Is this exactly what happened, or is there more to it - what are your sources? I am genuninly curious, because this is the first I heard about the case, so I want as much info as possible, if you can give any

What's wrong with CadiaN he's a great player overall even when he IGLs he's the 2nd or best player on Rouge and on Heroic he was alwayd 2nd or 3rd sometimes best player of the match. Sure JUGI is doing great vs tier 3-4 teams but CadiaN imo is better and has more potential. #SignCadiaNFor2017Atleast
2017-02-08 17:46
I think, his contract with Tricked is ending 31 dec 2017, so he can make everything he wants from 2018. Any problems, cancerous Tricked owner?
2017-02-08 17:52
How is this Tricked fault? They gave him contract 1st, with idea develop good player for their team future. He went behind their back, and signed another contract. + This happens twice with Tricked. Absolutely understand Tricked side of the story.
2017-02-08 21:15
Another contract is not a business of Tricked, man. He's free to do what he wants after 2017. And I know, why the player did that: he wants to go to a better team just now and develop his skills, but Tricked owner doesn't let him to go (so jugi signed a contract for 2018). Absolutely understand JUGi's side of the story.
2017-02-08 22:25
that's not exactly true... many athletes contrats don't allow you to negotiate a new contract while in one
2017-02-08 22:48
exactly. 99% of contracts (sports etc) are containing special terms. the club/org has the option to talk to the player first. means: before the contract ends, they negotiate with the player if they renew (with better conditions for example) it or end it. and the players are not allowed to sign new contracts before this negotiation. normal bizz. also normal is that the player still has to do his marketing jobs etc. when it is part of the contract. they get salary for this. look at schweinsteiger for example. angry mou kicked him out of the team last year. they have to pay him and he has to do marketing stuff etc., but there is no guarantee to play. thats bizz and part of the good life they can have nowadays.

I dont really know much about this, but i would like to understand how this works. Can he even pre-sign like this? Oskar did something similar once he was in HR with mouz and they also did similar thing, but that lasted for 3 motnhs. These things should not be allowed to players unless their contract is close to the end, should they? The bad thing is, that this is literally loose-loose-loose (lul) situation. They should "sell" him for reasonable price.

Not surprised by this when some of the investors behind Tricked are famous cheats. Doped Tour de France winner Bjarne Riis for example.

In era where organisations acts like kiddos changing players every half of year, teams like Virtus pro, Fnatic, NiP or NaVi being a examples how it should look like. F*ck Astralis, North, Heroic, Tricked, Faze etc. stealing players from other organistations every 2 months.

Market rules are cruel but it's the school of life for him (Yugi) for next year... Sadly he's the victim of business, and the cruel party is his employer. TRICKED tricked this player , their name fits them perfectly.
2017-02-08 19:53
Did you hit your head? Player behind present teams back signed contract with another team. I would say he tricked them... Completely understand Tricked side of story.

yeah gg im sure hes gona be so pissed off that he's getting paid a salary to do fucking nothing, this guy can literally just play MM and get drunk everyday and still get money

how many pro players would've done the same thing as he did? this way he could get salary and play, but salary without being able to play matches and attend all those lans is not worth it if you are a pro player.

well number 1, he's bad. im sure he doesnt give a fuck about going to lans if hes getting paid.

"I have seen several write that we want $150,000, but that is not true - our price is below that. We think the price we have set is more than fair for the biggest AWP talent, which also has some of the best ratings on HLTV." Yeah, 100k for a noname retard. lol.
2017-02-08 21:52
nonamer ? newfag LUL
2017-02-08 22:27
100k means nothing in pro scene in 2017 with a huge amount of leagues and tournaments that provide 250k-750k in prize money
2017-02-08 22:30
its a 100k for an uproven player. g2 full team sold for 700k with real talent in it. lol
2017-02-08 22:38
Maybe it's a fake info about 100k
2017-02-08 22:39
Why the fuck would you sign a contract to play for another team a year in advanced? Ofcourse your current team is going to be pissed off.
2017-02-08 22:10
It's obvious, man. I think he had a talk with owner to make a transfer in 2017, but owner said 'nope, you are mine for this year, no way'. So you will be pissed off in his case.
2017-02-08 22:33
That makes sense, just doesnt seem like the smart thing to do but I guess when his org wants a massive buyout and he wants to leave, maybe his emotions are high and trying to force them to let him go buy signing. You just know this sort of situation is going to get ugly.

Love that #Freejugi stuff - which basicly undermines our entire wish about having a pro and serious 'sport' going here. Yes to the salary and pricemoney No to acting like a professional and respecting a goddamn contract. Kindergarden, Yes? Serious Sport, No.
2017-02-09 15:15
Tricked will never become top team, they need to realise they only 'feed' top teams with players. But if I remember correctly, Tricked did the same with Jugi and Niko, which they stole from Aplha? #FREEJUGI
