With the apparent absence of success, following our RMR run last week, we spent a lot of time reflecting on our situation together as a team.
After intense and careful deliberation, we have recognized that we need to make extensive changes in order to be well-positioned in the competitive scene, especially now as we await a new era with CS2, without losing sight of our philosophy.
In the past we have paved the way for young talents to emerge and join the big guys as we accompanied and teached them intensively on their journey. We enjoyed seeing them flourish and blossom as our most recent youngsters did, lauNX and Staehr. In regards to the aforementioned challenges, we are excited to announce that we will be fulfilling a long-awaited project this summer by creating an Academy-Team. We are fully committed to take our talent promotion to the next level, building this Academy-Team from scratch to the best of our abilities and being a mentor for the talents throughout. In hopes that we raise the seedlings that may be the foundation for our future main team.
Speaking of, there are necessary short-term changes taking immediate effect as we enter the period of roster readjustment officially once again. First, after a rather brief journey, parting ways with Aaron ‘AZR’ Ward. We thank him for his efforts and the experience he brought to the team. We wish Aaron the best for his further journey.
Despite the sudden and challenging nature of this alteration, we are fully committed to pushing forward and work hard in order to achieve our long-term goals. In regards to the roster, we are now going back to trialing for an IG Leader, which will extend to both our officials and practice games. This may result in weekly changing players taking part.
That being said, we are dedicated to making progress and continuing to grow as a team to emerge steeled for the challenges waiting ahead.
