SK Gaming's CS division in shambles
Time: 2012-07-26 18:42
Game: Counter-Strike 1.6

According to rakaka, the coach of SK's Counter-Strike team Anton Budak has left the organization along with Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund.

Following SK Gaming's decision to not send the Counter-Strike team to GameGune it seems the team has now disbanded. Budak told rakaka that Dahlström has already acquired a job and that the two star players Alesund and Lindberg are also no longer part of the team.

Both Alesund and Lindberg have been seen playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive extensively with mixteam Rockstar, that even featured fnatic player Richard "Xizt" Landström at times, in the recent months. They have participated in the recently announced ESL Go4CSGO Cup series' on the last two weekends.


Budak leaves SK as the CS team folds

The plans for Johan "face" Klasson and Marcus "Delpan" Larsson are currently unknown, but neither has teamed up with their now former teammates' Rockstar in CS:GO so far, which makes it seem unlikely they will continue to be teammates in the future.

Anton Budak had joined the SK Gaming organization as coach of the Counter-Strike team in 2007, but has also decided to leave because according to him it doesn't feel like the same team anymore. He also mentioned he has received a new offer from another team which he will announce shortly.

SK Gaming's final formation:

Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
Johan "face" Klasson
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström 

Alesund has furthermore announced his plans to attend FireCore 4 in Manchester, England on August 4-5 with Swedish mixteam Coldgame, featuring WinFakt's Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson among others.

Have you ever played this game? Gimme your steam link and make profile open to public. Man, the game is great, it's just difference from 1.6.
2012-07-28 09:22:08
rakaka.se - no more to say.

2012-07-28 00:30:29
But sometimes rakaka provides information without sources. And as a result, the information is incorrect. Sad.
2012-07-28 08:57:02
Well, I actually came here after reading GeT_RiGhT's facebook status, sounded legit to me :D

sk disbands - cs1.6 proscene died.
great times were in 1.6 with sk, great players, great teamplay. so sad :(
2012-07-26 18:46:04
Bad move from SK organization.
2012-07-26 18:46:22
bad? they couldnt do shit against ESC/NAVI (especially ESC) over the last 1-1,5year so it's pretty good decision from sk.
2012-07-26 18:54:14
So not true. The fact that they couldn't win doesn't mean they shouldn't attend. Counter Strike teams make a circle. Maybe they could have won the gamegunue. fnatic 2 years ago could win a shit. Does that mean that the organization should not send the 1.6 division on tours? What logic is that?
2012-07-26 18:56:13
When the team you send to events is not training and they're not putting any effort for the game they are being paid for play (and win), whats the point on cover their travel expenses and send them to compete?
2012-07-26 19:00:00
They were training. LOL YOU GUYS! SK IS THE 4RTH MOST POWERFULL TEAM!
Stop telling about Sk not trying. I think you underestimate fnatic , ESC and Navi. They are top teams! Not easy to win against. So SK players don't have the right to have a bad season? I mean they were dominating back in 2010 and 2011. 2012 is the year of fnatic so far. We shall see how it goes. Stop speaking as Sk is a noob team.
2012-07-26 19:03:29
Did you read what TheSlaSh said some days ago? They didn't practice for their own country event (DH), why would they practice for GameGune?
2012-07-26 19:16:18

2012-07-26 20:28:41
2010?
2012-07-26 19:21:49
why especially esc ? NaVi is way better than g5, stop fanboyism
2012-07-26 18:57:31
just in 2010
2011 esc's year
2012-07-26 19:00:00
2011 navi skipped a lot of tournaments, havent trained enough and pick 3rd place of the year...
on 2011 and 2012 they just lost a lot of finals and semi-finals for nonsenses and silly mistakes !
2012-07-26 19:06:12
and what that means
2012-07-27 11:36:26
they have won several times against na'vi and esc dude
2012-07-26 19:04:39
by several you meant once in a gropustage (dont even remember where) and twice in those showmatches, right?

There was a time some months ago when SK was winning event after event with ESC/NaVi attending.
2012-07-26 21:29:16
they owned ESC fanboy
2012-07-26 20:47:00
when?
2012-07-26 22:11:13
when they had 40 games winning streak ?

2012-07-27 10:38:10
CS started dying in the early 2010
2012-07-27 12:33:03
you will see, soon will be SK.CS:GO, because CS:GO=money,money,money, SK always wanted money money money, THESLASH wants money money money, and no more.
Really sorry for players
2012-07-26 18:50:06
The fact is: Players want money money money as well. :)

You can be romantic, but you better not be a penniless romantic...

Though I live in Russia I always supported SK as for Na'Vi for FNATIC.MSI and &#1052;5 certainly, but that that SK leave it is bad news. but I think &#1082;&#1089; 1.6 won't die, tournaments will be there will be new teams and everything will be normal, all old teams will leave sooner or later as they say the road young, we will get used as &#1085;&#1080;&#1073;&#1091;&#1076;&#1100; personally I won't pass on &#1082;&#1089;: &#1075;&#1086; and as I will play in 1.6 and as a last resort I will leave in a Dota 2

This is pathetic, please stop saying cs 1.6 is dead.

They will probably join another team and everything is going to come back to normal.
You guys are just too delusional.
2012-07-27 03:19:11
^^^ normal?? are you delusional. what's normal bout having only half as many tourneys as last year (or less).

that's practically the nail in the coffin for 1.6

=\

2012-07-27 11:07:57
Meanwhile in Ukraine Na`Vi prepares to dominate CS 1.6 scene.. Not really, but 2 years ago this statement would have been legit :(
2012-07-28 00:37:01
Frankly speaking children I don't trust that cs 1.6 will die, well it will have recessions but new tournaments will appear over time, simply it is not possible that &#1082;&#1089; died at it because it play 120 million people if to count NON steam, and I think that over time everything becomes better
2012-07-27 11:00:02
And that number comes from what sources? The Russian Parliament isen't a credible source.
