Quantic raid Lurking and Working

May 6th, 2013 22:40

Quantic Gaming have announced that they have picked up Lurking and Working as their new CS:GO team.

Quantic had been left with just two players from their season 13 roster after Kory "semphis" Friesen, Spencer "hiko" Martin and Carey "frozt" Kertenian all decided to leave the team in the aftermath of their runners-up finish at the ESEA finals, in Dallas.

Sam "DaZeD" Marine and Trey "tck" Martin then sided with Neil "montE" Montgomery and Jon "hauNt" Wilson, bringing the team to four players just 48 hours before the registration for the new ESEA season was due to be closed.

However, it has now been revealed that Quantic have parted company with what was left of their season 13 team to bet on a recently-created project led by Friesen and Martin.

The duo will be joined by former Area51 team-mate Sean "sgares" Gares and by ex-Dynamic duo Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and Braxton "swag" Pierce.

As it stands now, Quantic will have to play in ESEA Open next season, but they could still be placed in the invite division via the traditional move-ups or the community vote.

Quantic now have the following team:

Canada Kory "semphis" Friesen
United States Spencer "hiko" Martin
United States Sean "sgares" Gares
United States Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
United States Braxton "swag" Pierce

Finland Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen (backup)

The following quartet are on the lookout for a new organisation to represent:

United States Sam "DaZeD" Marine
United States Trey "tck" Martin
Canada Neil "montE" Montgomery
United States Jon "hauNt" Wilson

2013-05-06 22:44
sucks for dazed tbh , major snaking going on here
2013-05-06 22:42
not really, DaZeD shouldn't be such a doucher
2013-05-07 00:05
2013-05-07 11:45
Curse are better
2013-05-06 22:42
Not from what I saw last night. Lost twice to them.
2013-05-07 00:08
wow way to screw over the other 3 guys who were dedicated to your team
2013-05-06 22:45
2013-05-06 22:47
3 guy? frozt did left.. only dazed and tck left from the original roster
2013-05-06 23:32
You mean other 2 guys? And how do you what was actually happening in the team and who screwed over whom? At this point this surely seems like the better decision by the orga
2013-05-06 23:33
2013-05-06 22:49
lol Curse should be now: Dazed, tck, anger, AZK, Skadoodle would be awesome..
2013-05-06 22:49
yep, would be a better team than quantic tbh
2013-05-06 22:55
Curse adreN anger AZK skadoodle stan they pracced against eachother yesterday. Semphis was accusing skadoodle of being an onliner haha.
2013-05-06 22:55
Leaving out adreN is just wrong :) Would rather see him then Skadoodle, even though he is sick aswell
2013-05-07 23:47
sgares is good ?
2013-05-06 22:49

except that sgares was 1.6 player and he can? He was good before he "retired" now i dont know i havent watched him.
2013-05-06 23:01
you know shit, dont forget about that
2013-05-06 23:16
he is a monster with that awp, before his break he was definitely top1 sniper in US

US cs go scene is quite intriguing!
2013-05-06 22:52
gl guys
2013-05-06 22:53
dazed didn't really get along well with the other players it only makes sense that the team would eventually disband because it's too hard to stay positive with any negative energy. I'm sure the members of quantic knew how good their teammates were but in the end if they're not all on the same page they won't work as a team.
2013-05-06 22:57
It's almost as if DaZeD is the US' version of RattlesnK. Not to mention they're both named "Sam".
2013-05-06 23:10
Nothing out of EG? :((

Yea, but it would be nice if they would support GO for a bit
2013-05-06 23:42
I used to think that, but EG's owner tweeted something that showed his interest in CS:GO.
2013-05-07 00:20

really? last time i checked he was laughing at the game

n0thing is still in contract with EG. The fact is that he's only doin' some commercial stuff with EG sponsors, because n0thing is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) member of EG organization and he's kinda like "THE FACE OF EG"
2013-05-06 23:56
He's to valuable to be sold. I agree, plus he beneficts a lot too :).
2013-05-07 00:19
face of EG is idrA no one cares about n0thing lol

2013-05-08 00:28
Don't agree. Otherwise n0thing wouldn't be held that long.
2013-05-07 20:00
and now EG have released their face

I don't blame quantic for doing it. The "we are gonna play with IRL friends" thing is not promising. Quantic are aiming for the better teams, and they have got one now for sure.
2013-05-06 23:06
news these days are so exciting im gonna dieeeeeee
2013-05-06 23:08
god this is so annoying any more. the flipflopery is very noobish. rip NA.
2013-05-06 23:13
quantic picked up a real team instead of sticking with the remnants of a dead one, sounds like a good deal to me
2013-05-06 23:33
wow thats fucked up i mean great team they picked up but quantic did dazed dirty as fuck.
2013-05-06 23:35
nvm read the comment semphis left dazed got what was deserved lol
2013-05-07 05:19
Best pick for Quantic. There's no doubt, this lineup is the strongest in the US.
2013-05-06 23:39
yet not played a game together and get that sponsor, aswel at at esea, semphis and hiko were the worst performers tck clutch king and dazed were so much better...
2013-05-06 23:58
I guess that n0thing & co knows what they are doing if they picked hiko and semphis over players as tck / frozt / dazed etc. There are things behind the scenes that we as spectators don't know, so.. I'll just have to guess that this team should be pretty damn good and the chemistry is good as well.
2013-05-07 00:31
maybe they asked dazed and tck, but they wouldnt back stab semphis and hiko, and then BAM lmao! na im just fucking wi chu, but i dont think they would be as good as a team with dazed running because dazed is a pritty sick player
2013-05-07 00:43
DaZeD is indeed great, but I've heard some people saying he's a douche.. that's also a problem. Just like RattlesnK , he's a great player but a big douche !
2013-05-07 11:48
the thing with rattlesnk and maybe dazed, they can see what people do wrong and i dont think id be as bad because id let it go until the end of the game. but they require perfection which isn't a bad thing because when you get to there levels its not on there aim its on the caller making the right calls.. so when they fuck up a smoke or flash its on the callers shoulders because its his responsiblity to make sure his players can do it.. rattlesnk is known as a perfectionist which is why he has done so well. although i dont always agree how he does it at the beguinning of the next round which can result in players getting there heads down. sorry for long paragraph
2013-05-07 17:23
The best ingame leaders I've seen were pretty calm. RattlesnK attitude is just shit and that's why his team isn't performing well and changing lineup every week.
2013-05-07 18:28
well no, i think his attitude suits the players he has now, like the players he has now might perform better under critism. like if there is a calm in-game leader is good no doubt, but players like prb i would assume would go shy if he gets shouted at. release,hudz,hughesy. come across as trying to prove him wrong and doing something crazy. and i doubt they will be chopping and changing again i hope haha. like his attitude hasnt stopped him in the past so i dont understand your arguement for it now :s
2013-05-07 20:59
I think it's an endless argument since we both see it from different point of views and we will not agree with each other.. so let's just end this here instead of talking about it over and over :) I saw a comment from Semphis saying that DaZeD tried to backstab him , and hiko & co. didn't agree to do it. That's making the story a bit more clear I assume.
2013-05-07 22:32
Dumb move in my eyes. Why do they kick a better team for them? It's about popularity i guess, because there is n0thing who is till now shit in CSGO. DaZeD's team was way better without a doubt. EDIT. If i said something wrong correct me please. Didn't want to attack anyone!
2013-05-06 23:54
how is n0thing shit in CSGO? u new bro?
2013-05-07 00:07
n0thing is shit in CSGO.
2013-05-07 01:44
rofl you clrearly know n0thing top 3 in quantic was dazed, semphis and hiko
2013-05-07 02:12
I know n0thing. He was very good in 1.6, but he isn't even near his form in GO. And compared to player like f0rest, shoxie and even DaZeD he is shit.
2013-05-07 03:24
2013-05-07 00:04
Why they just screwed such a good player as DaZeD ?
2013-05-07 00:20
5 good players > 1 good player
2013-05-07 00:21
monte is better than anye one on the new quantic squad, just wait and see And tck and dazed was by far the best two players for qauntic, kind of a dick move to pick up a new squad that just abandoned another org.
2013-05-07 00:28
Yea cool story brah
2013-05-07 02:26
Feel so bad for dazed hope he finds a good loyal team.
2013-05-07 00:43
2013-05-07 00:44
DaZeD is a big rager. No wonder he didnt get along with them.
2013-05-07 00:59

2013-05-07 03:45
dazed got screwed so bad lol hope to see him in a good team soon.. gl to the new Quantic, lets see if they can fill the shoes of the old one
2013-05-07 02:35
yea, Curse should drop stan^ pick up DaZeD, just don't let him be IGL.
2013-05-07 03:39
Stan was beaat vs verygames
2013-05-07 12:37
was what
2013-05-08 04:24
2013-05-09 13:01
What truly happened was I came back from ESEA Lan and a day before my Vacation to Puerto Vallarta and Dazed tried to cut me, Hiko sided with me and wouldn't do it. TCK and frozt didn't want the team to cut me or break up but dazed said he rather leave than play with me anymore which resulted in the team disbanding and me and hiko forming our new 1.6 all star team. I still like tck and frozt a lot and they are great guy's nobody should blame them for anything that went wrong, all the blame should be directed directly to dazed and you should understand that every team he's been on has died or he's been cut from because he's literally impossible to deal with and lacks any form of human empathy.

2013-05-07 05:26
cant argue with that!
2013-05-07 11:51
cool story brah..
2013-05-07 06:28
Dazed is raging because he can't grow a beard!
2013-05-07 13:43
discussing this kind of things in hltv.org threads,priceless
2013-05-08 04:23
Anyone who has watched his stream knows who dazed is. He is one of the most intelligent yet harsh and aggressive persons I know in CS. His leadership style of pointing out, fixing mistakes and calling strats has made him and his teams great. If people put aside their personal feelings and play for the end result of not making mistakes and winning, that is what happens and does happen under him. It's not like hes a sociopath according to semphis who himself is a notorious rager, there's obviously two sides to the story that semphis is omitting, that said gl
2013-05-07 04:51
loving the 1.6 talent that is on this roster
2013-05-07 04:48
hehe drama out of 20 yr olds

erm isn't fRoD linked with n0thing and swag?
2013-05-07 08:09
Frod is in HRG with storm and warden. It literally tells you on hltv homepage
2013-05-07 08:31
dazed should join mOE team they fit together. imagine 2 big ragers in one team.
2013-05-07 08:44
Is sgares good in GO? Never saw him playing this game. Sad for DaZeD, he is such a beast.
2013-05-07 10:30
alot considered sgares to be best awper in cs go after dreamhack winter tournament.
2013-05-07 10:37
It's been a while since DreamHack Winter took place.
2013-05-07 10:41
errr, well that's one way of doing it.

2013-05-07 14:57
Life would be terrible if we do all the foolish teen promises. lurppis gave the word, lurppis took it back - so he is the master of his word.
