With all the CSGO Lotto drama and the ensuing clown fiesta going on, another CSGO company flew a little bit under the radar - this time owned by folks actually fully involved in the esports space: CSGOWild is apparently owned by FaZe's Nordon 'Rain' Shat and Ricky Banks.

As the video states above, these two were allegedly a little smarter in setting up their company, as they own several shell companies that are listed on the CSGOWild paperwork.
While this should be taken with a grain of salt for now, as Eight_Thoughts' Youtube channel is currently suspended - thus, he's unable to totally supply his evidence. Still, the evidence does exist that these two have made videos with CSGOWild in a similar way to TmartN and others involved in the CS:GO Lotto incident.
They've both gone on record denying these allegations, for now, although it was stated in Eight_Thought's video that Ryan Morrison (the Video Game Attorney) was aware of that case as well.
