It has now been confirmed that Absolute Legends have decided to let go of the team, and while the reason for this move remains a mystery, there is no bad blood between the two parties.
"It was a mutual agreement, we both felt that it was time for a change," Alexander "rdl" Redl told HLTV.org.
"We are looking into getting a stable organisation for Dreamhack and hopefully the EMS One LAN finals.
"Our first priority will be the Dreamhack tournament and we hope to secure a sponsorship before that.
"If anyone is interested in supporting us for Dreamhack and perhaps further than that send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, I will give you more information and we can discuss this issue more in detail. See you guys at Dreamhack!"
Until an organisation is found, Markus "pronax" Wallsten's men will be playing under the name Team X.
The Swedish side have been drawn in Group C in the group stage of RaidCall EMS One, where they were pitted against Ninjas in Pyjamas, fnatic and Anexis.
Team X have the following lineup:
Markus "pronax" Wallsten
Jonathan "lidde" Lidgren
Alexander "rdl" Redl
Christian "Spitfire" Schiölde
Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi
