Player contracts

On February 1, 2003, SK Gaming became one of the first clubs in FPS gaming to legally bind players to their clan.[5] The specifics of their contracts are not disclosed; however, it is known from interviews that the contracts include a salary, which according to interviews was not large by itself, but the players are also entitled to shares of prize money. On May 18, 2004 they were the first western electronic sports club to receive a fee for a player transfer after rivals Team NoA bought SK Counter-Strike player Ola "elemeNt" Moum out of his contract. This also prevents players from leaving an organization for a rival before the end of their contract. However, teams are sometimes willing to let their players go on a loan deal to another side. The first eSports loan deal is thought to be that of Lukas "MohammedZaherSzah" Baranowski, a Battlefield 2 player, from Team Dignitas to Team Wilda in 2006.
