Western Wolves have announced on their official website that Nichlas "Nille" Busk has left the team with immediate effect.
The change comes as a huge surprise as it takes places just days before The Blast #5, an event that will attract almost every top Danish CS:GO team out there.
Due to personal reasons, Nichlas "Nille" Busk has decided to step down from the active lineup, with this being the first roster change the team have undergone since picking up Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen from Copenhagen Wolves in December.
The former Anexis team were very successful in their events with the new lineup, finishing runners-up to Ninjas in Pyjamas at Mad Catz Vienna and then, under Western Wolves' banner, at Copenhagen Games.
But in recent weeks they appeared to lose some steam as they placed third at Mad Catz Birmingham before finishing runners-up to TCM-Gaming in the RADEON Offensive #2 online tournament.
To field a five-man team for The Blast, Western Wolves decided to pick up EYES ON U's Sebastian "izenb0" Riising, who will be playing for the team on trial.
After the event in Rødekro, which will kick off on Thursday, Western Wolves will decide whether to keep Riising in their ranks or look elsewhere for a new fifth player.
"It's sad to see Nille leave us, but he's been struggling with some personal issues lately, and has not been motivated nor focused on the game, as much as he would like to," team manager Kevin "kevz" Mikkelsen told Western Wolves' website.
"It's a mutual decision that Nille is leaving us today, and there are no hard feelings whatsoever.
"This means, that a new face will be joining of for The Blast #5 which starts this very Thursday, the new face will be Sebastian "izenb0" Riising, who will play as our new fifth at The Blast #5.
"We're not sure who we are going to bring in as our new fifth yet, but it is something we will have a look at after The Blast."
Western Wolves' lineup now consists of the following players:
Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander
Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen
Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen
Jacob "Pimp" Winneche
