semphis, hiko leave Quantic
The news comes as a huge surprise as Quantic were the losing finalists at the ESEA Finals, going all the way from the first round of the Lower Bracket to the tournament decider, in which they fell short against Ninjas in Pyjamas.
With the new ESEA season just around the corner, it seems that internal problems have taken quite a toll on the team, resulting in the departures of longtime members Kory "semphis" Friesen and Spencer "hiko" Martin.
These two players have already found a new team, called Lurking and Working, together with former Area51 team-mate Sean "sgares" Gares and ex-Dynamic duo Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and Braxton "swag" Pierce.

The last player on Lurking and Working's ESEA roster is Finnish veteran Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen, who recently won the ESEA Finals in CS:1.6 with Netcode Illuminati.
Quantic are now in the market for two new players before the start of the new ESEA season, on May 12th.
