Shroud feels TenZ’s buyout could fetch a high price for Cloud9

Shroud offered his take on the entire situation in his stream and provided insights into TenZ’s situation.

” I heard TenZ’s buyout, started at 2 million dollars. Do you guys know if that its true? Just a little rumor that I heard that his buyout starts at 2 mil, what you guys think? Too high, too low, you are literally lost if you think it is 5 mil, 2 mil I can understand, in my honest opinion, I feel 2 mil is high. My guess was around 700k to a mil was a little more realistic, you are literally lost if you think anyone is paying 5 million, 700k to a mil I can see that”

The streamer also reaffirmed that a massive buyout of 2 million dollars could be in the book, as TenZ is just too valuable. The professional player brandishes a massive fanbase, and his routine stream usually brings in 30k viewers.

Sentinels have recently announced that it has extended TenZ’s loan, thereby confirming that a massive buyout is on the book. It is quite possible that the orgs could not conclude the buyout and the tricky situation with Sinatra compelled Sentinels to ask for an extension. Safe to say, this will only delay the inevitable and TenZ will eventually find his way into the team.
