Former Copenhagen Flames (CPHF) CS:GO coach talks about the buyout price of the previous CPHF lineup.
According to vorborg, despite CPHF dropping the buyout price by more than half, there were no potential takers.
Complexity Gaming was supposed to buy the former CPHF roster but eventually the deal collapsed.

The Danish esports club, Copenhagen Flames (CPHF), has found a lot of success in the last two years. After its run at the PGL Stockholm Major 2021, where CPHF achieved a 9th-11th placement, the promising roster was put on the market attracting a handful of interested buyers.

Soon reports surfaced that Complexity Gaming had turned out to be the top candidate and was ready to discuss offers with CPHF between $500,000 - $750,000 USD. However, nothing transpired and the Danish organization stated that the deal had fallen through in the end.

Commenting on the situation, Daniel "vorborg" Vorborg, former CPHF CS:GO coach revealed that the buyout price of the entire lineup had been brought down to €160,000 ($169,075) yet no organization or team came forward to sign the team.

Former CPHF coach, vorborg, recently revealed that last year when the Danish club was trying to search for potential buyers for the previous iteration of its CS:GO roster, they had dropped the buyout price from $500,000 to $169,075 but still found no takers.

At that point in time, CPHF had to make the tough decision of continuing ahead with the same lineup as the deal with Complexity had collapsed and fallen through. This turned out to be a fruitful decision for everyone involved as the team went on to improve on its previous performance by reaching the playoffs at the PGL Antwerp Major 2022.

The team placed 5th-8th at the tournament after having reached the quarterfinals and proved that it was a mistake to leave the lineup hanging like that despite CPHF reducing their buyout price by more than half of the initial offer.

Following the incredible performance in Antwerp, Fnatic swooped in to sign both Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi and Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen, while Heroic claimed Jakob "jabbi" Nygaard, leaving Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen and Rasmus "Zyphon" Nordfoss on the team's transfer list awaiting potential offers.

Now, CPHF is on its way to building Flames 3.0, another new CS:GO roster from the ground up with the aim of reaching the Majors once again in the near future.
