VeryGames have decided to drop out of SLTV StarSeries V despite a 3-0 start to their campaign in order to focus more on preparing for the upcoming LAN events.
The third place finishers at Mad Catz CS:GO Invitational went on to state that during the month leading up to the event in Vienna, they had to play twenty-four official matches on the internet, which made their preparation suffer.
The French side had secured wins over Faith, KerchNET and mousesports in the league, and were heavy favorites to clinch one of the four spots at the finals in Kiev in a month's time.
On the team's website, Jérôme "NiaK" Sudries furthermore stated that despite clocking in tons of hours in-game, the team wasn't being as productive as they should have been due to continuous matches, an average of six per week.
VeryGames were expected to face off against Ukrainian Natus Vincere yesterday, but decided to use their wildcard to postpone the match. The team is expected to still take part in RC EMS One Cup #4 next week to guarantee a spot in the main round.
