According to rakakaworld.com, Lions are on the brink of losing their Counter-Strike division.
The Swedish team's contracts with Lions run until the end of the month, and it is believed the players are not interested in an extension after reportedly becoming unhappy with the organisation's lack of support.
Meet Your Makers, who have been without a CS squad for a month, and Dignitas, whose managing director, Michael "ODEE" O'Dell, was spotted chatting with Björn "threat" Pers at the IEM5 World Championship, are both mooted as likely destinations.
Lions have had the team since August, when they signed the Swedes from H2k Gaming.
After a convincing first-place finish at ASUS Summer, the team has only captured silverware again just once, at the IOL 3 Finals, placing third at MSI Beat It, DSRack and DreamHack Winter and second at the EPS Nordic III finals.
In December, Lions lost hot-shot Richard "Xizt" Landström to fnatic, bringing in Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl in his place.
The move has, however, produced few results, as the team finished 5th-6th at the IEM5 European Championship and did not go beyond the group stage at the IEM5 World Championship.
Lions have the following team:
Niklas "niko" Johansson
Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström
Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson
Björn "threat" Pers
Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl

Sk unfortunately have only normal robban and f0rest on de_train. It's not enough imo.
I think that they're frustrated after IEM EU and GF.

"the players are not interested in an extension after reportedly becoming unhappy with the organisation's lack of support"
just sometimes try to read the news, then u will realise that its not "sad"
thats looks cool :D
Hope for all orgs to leave their "employes".And finaly CS will be shut down : P
they will just change orga, what's so sad about it ?
I think it's pretty good for them, becouse they need support, they need to attend events, so good decision...
read the news !
the players are not interested in an extension
though i cant tell for sure if it's the organisation who suddenly got problems with their economy or if it's the players whom have gone greedy as of late.
every team gux join start to act strange...burn him pls...
and they kill all
however i think that the team like this will find a sponsor without problems...
and the switch Gux - Xizt kinda both teams win from that.. Xizt is a fantastic player who will learn alot with fnatic while Gux is also a fantastic player with more experience than Xizt so will bring something new to Lions or whatever team they will be heading to
GL Gux & co. Hope you find a great organization to support you! :)
