Cloud9 Owner Jack Etienne Says FNS' Buyout Cost $200,000
On Twitter, Jack Etienne responded to a comment about the amount of money spent on Pujan "FNS" Mehta's buyout. It was supposedly worth $200,000. That's sizable sum for Jake "Stewie2K" Yip's replacement.
FNS is the person we wanted. His buyout was 200K— Jack Etienne (@JackEtienne) 19 мая 2018 г.
How much was enough to satisfy you?
This all started when a fan thought Cloud9 failed to find a suitable replacement and complained they weren't willing to spend the money. Etienne was quick to respond with the actual amount of money. Even though he was trying to prove a point, it does add a lot of pressure to the roster and FNS to now provide results after that amount of money was spent.
So far, they haven't been holding up to their end of the bargain. While other teams are making changes with poor results, Cloud9 has spent too much money and time in revitalizing this team after the major. Losing Stew to SK Gaming was a big blow and no one has stepped up to fill the void that Jake left. They'll need to have a competitive summer or we'll see more changes hit this roster.
