qk-Mantis inactive; /10/ add smn
/10/ have announced more changes to their team, as Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein has stepped down from the active lineup.
The German team were last seen in action at DreamHack Summer, where they gave in a disappointing account of themselves, finishing at the foot of their group, with two defeats from as many matches.
After the Swedish event, /10/ were rocked by internal problems that led to a heated exchange of words between Anil "cLy" Gülec and Hendrik "strux1" Goetzendorff.
qk-Mantis becomes inactive
With Gülec out of the picture, /10/ picked up Robert "TORNADOTONI" Radosevic, but that was not the end of it, as the German team have witnessed the departure of Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein, who has lost the drive to play on an active level.
"This has nothing to do with the players on the team or the performances in the 4PL Cup, it is just that the passion for CS:GO is missing," Oberlein told 99damage.de
"I wanted to wait to see if my motivation increased, but I prefer to leave now than when the team start practicing more intensively.
"I'll be inactive for the time being, maybe in a few months I'll regain motivation, but as you can see now I have no motivation: I have eight hours on Steam in the last two weeks."
Taking Oberlein's place in /10/ is Simon "smn" Beck, who decided to quit the former n!faculty team after it was dropped by the German organisation.
/10/ are signed up for the Prague Challenge, but sources close to the team have told HLTV.org that the team's attendance is in doubt.
The German team now have the following lineup:
Dimitrios "stavros" Smoilis
Hendrik "strux1" Goetzendorff
Azmican "asmo" Berberoglu
Robert "TORNADOTONI" Radosevic
Simon "smn" Beck
