DPG or Basilisk?

Serral + Reynor at Basilisk would be outright illegal. I can see DPG needing a reinforcement as they are poised to lose both Dark and Cure to military service.

Honestly, wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t offer a renew.
He played really poorly this WTL

Of course he’s still one of the best players in the world, but for them it was a question of results

They would be crazy not to offer a renew, they don’t have enough players without him anyways. It’s probably basilisk money indeed

I beg to differ. Reynor and Oliveira do well for Kaizi into the way fans should expect too.

If you wanted to say Kaizi didn’t do well in regular season matches, DPG also did so in some of seasons as the team just barely made into the playoff bracket. DPG didn’t sack Rogue, Zest, Cure, herO or Dark for the poor performances in regular season matches.

I think it is more like they want to cut the budget, just like what happens to Solar before? Couldn’t offer much needed into negotiation?

Reynor did well in the playoffs, which is by far the most important time to show up. They’d be crazy not to renew for underperformance. Far more likely is they just don’t have the money to pay his salary demands (and another team *ahem Basilisk* does).

Nah, it’s only because Reynor chose to not extend his contract with Kaizi, while he had a done deal with Basilisk before that time, according to scboy.xiaose.

Ok, that makes sense. It seems like Clem too has been courted into the team based on unconfirmed rumor.

All pinch of sea salt but word flying around is DPG lost one of their investors and might go back to KZ (DPG was split off KZ in the first place).
