Absolute Legends disband
Absolute Legends have announced that their CS:GO division has disbanded.
The Swedish team were recruited by Absolute Legends in October with hopes of establishing themselves as one of the top sides in Europe, but successive roster changes and disappointing LAN results prevented them from scaling great heights.
Since the start of the year, Absolute Legends had replaced Andreas "schneider" Lindberg and Jim "zneel" Andersson with Dennis "dennis" Edman and Olof "olofm" Kajbjer, and things seemed to be finally going their way as the team qualified for the group stage of RaidCall EMS One via the last cup.

However, it has now been announced that the team have decided to call it quits, just days before they were expected to attend Copenhagen Games.
"We have been trying time and time again to fix people that wants to play and have the same mindset in terms on how much we want to achive as a team," Alexander "rdl" Redl said.
"It's just too sad to keep on stumbling upon unprofessional players. We announce that we are putting this on ice for now, we might resurface later on, or not.
"Time will tell what happens. Just want to thank Tim and AL for all their efforts that they have made."
Contacted by HLTV.org. Redl stated that the team will still compete in EMS One, in which they will lock horns with ESC Gaming, k1ck and LDLC.com, but most likely as a mix team.
This means that there will be an extra vacant spot in the next ESEA Invite season. The Swedish team came in seventh place this season, with seven victories from 16 matches.
Absolute Legends had the following roster:
Markus "pronax" Wallsten
Jonathan "lidde" Lidgren
Alexander "rdl" Redl
Dennis "dennis" Edman
Olof "olofm" Kajbjer
