Kaboose is housed under an organization once again
As previously reported, the roster of F1-racecar-PEEK has signed with Vision Gaming after pulling out of negotations with BlackOut Gaming, who were also looking to acquire the MDL squad.
According to tweets from Nathan Blum, the co-owner of BlackOut, BlackOut offered the team travel support to Tokyo in Tulsa, Fragadelphia, and $2,300 in salary for the first month. The players of F1-racecar-PEEK later abandoned negotiations with the organization due to Vision promising greater compensation for the players than what BlackOut had offered.
Based on a tweet from BlackOut's CS:GO manager, Jeremy "Jeremy9000" Gray, Vision offered over at least $100 more to the roster in their contract. Taking Jeremy9000's comments at face-value, the salary proposed by Vision could be anywhere from $2,400 to $2,800 or more, with travel support for Fragadelphia and Tokyo in Tulsa likely being similar to BlackOut's offer.
