One of the biggest breakthroughs of the PGL Major Copenhagen was w0nderful, a Ukrainian sniper of Natus Vincere. He only recently came to the team as a substitute for s1mple. While the nineteen-year-old player performed greatly in the capital of Denmark, his market price only a year prior was not that great.

In July 2023, w0nderful was transferred from Team Spirit to Sprout. According to Daniel Paulus, one of the former executives of Sprout, the exact sum of the transfer was €70,000 (~$ 75,700).

W0nderful spent three months in Sprout, and after that, Natus Vincere invited him. How much did the Ukrainian club pay? We don't know, but we can for sure tell that even if s1mple is back to NAVI, the club will earn money since w0nderful's transfer value greatly rose. The Esports Transfer portal estimates his price to be a whopping $1,000,000! Six months ago, this number was way lower - around $400,000. 

It would be interesting to see how Natus Vincere will decide this roster dilemma, but it won't be resolved in a short amount of time.
