CSGO players contracts usually have a high buyout. It is rare for organisations to pay the buyout, but we have seen exceptions in the past. Especially when it comes to an organization wanting to build a stronger team without having to wait out a contract. When you wait for one players’ contract, the rest of the players might have signed up for another team. This does put the players as a ticking time bomb.
