Isak "cype" Rydman's team has decided to split up with the LGB eSports organization, the team have announced via Facebook.
The organization's short history goes back to October 2013, when it was created alongside its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad, which has since climbed the ranking to being one of the best teams in the world.
During those seven months the team was able to give NiP a run for their money twice in a row at Dreamhack Winter and Svecup Grand Finals and only a few months later ended up being 3rd-4th at the second major, EMS One Katowice.
They weren't capable of passing Virtus.pro once again at Copenhagen Games, which got them another 5th-8th placing.
LGB's inability to take part in more events due to insufficient support was more than obvious though, which seems to be the reason for the team to part ways with LGB to search for better conditions in another organization.
"The team and I have decided to part ways with LGB eSports. We have had a few great months but for us to keep evolve and become even better we are now looking for other options." Rydman told xtrfy.com.
"We want to thank all our fans for the support aswell as Xtrfy, who have been the people behind LGB eSports for the time being, both of which have been a big part of what we are today."
LGB had the following roster:
Isak "cype" Rydman
Dennis "dennis" Edman
Simon "twist" Eliasson
Freddy "KRiMZ" Johansson
Olof "olofm" Kajbjer
The team is now sitting at fourth place in ESEA Invite Season 16 with twenty-four points from sixteen matches, which means they have a chance to advance to the global finals, depending on how the rest of the matches end up.

The only thing that might come to my mind now, is either a "world known" organisation is picking them up (Eventually SK?) or unless something major happens within the scene the next couple of days, such as (example: fnatic disbanding) etc .. Then fnatic eventually pick 'em up.
It would be a big questionmark to me, why they should leave LGB - unless they have some major announcement incomming.
Would love to see dennis back in SK !!

SK would fit to them.
Do they want to get banned for not going to the LAN ? lol
As for now, we're TEAMGLOBAL, and is solely financed by our earlier won prize money and my personal savings. We will probably be TEAMGLOBAL at Dreamhack.
And don't forget that the squad is not splitting up, they're just changing their orga ;)

Being one of the best european teams i can see a good organization (deffo not 3DMAX) picking the up. Maybe SK if they can fund them properly
They get free chairs & desks, and some good financial backing. This could be huge!
”We are currently focusing on the FACEIT-leuge and the upcoming DreamHack Summer. We can, with the price money from Katowice take it easy, and thanks to the players enter all the upcoming tournaments, with or without an organisation behind us. Including to participate in DreamHack Summer and the ESEA LAN Finals in Dallas, if we would qualify, which right now are looking good, Jenderby says.”

PS: I want a SK HOLO Sticker in the market !!!!!!!!!
Heard enough shit about SK's poor reputation as an organization.
that logo is and always will be my favorite. i dont care if they recruit a 3rd tier team for their organizatoin.
that logo is sick.
"We've got a big announcement coming up later today and cannot wait to share it with you. Hint: 2004 - 2009 - 2014. Any guesses?"
