Anexis release CS:GO squad

As this turbulent day was nearing its end, German organization Anexis also came out with the news of releasing their British CS:GO squad due to poor results at recent events.

Anexis' CS:GO division recently finished 3rd at Prague Challenge after losing to international mix team Nostalgie who went on to win the tournament.

Despite grabbing a 2,000€ check, and only losing to the eventual champions, the result was considered an underpeformance both by the team themselves and the community.

Anexis at Prague Challenge

After four days of mulling over that finish, the organization announced that they will be releasing the team due to poor performance at both Prague Challenge and RaidCall EMS One Summer, where they failed to qualify for the LAN finals.

One of the original members of the former mousesports lineup that signed with Anexis back in February, James "Mx" Smale, stated their thanks to the organization, thus showing that the two sides parted ways on friendly terms.

"I would like to thank Anexis for the support they showed us over the past 6 months, especially through the up's and many down's. They never gave up on us, and respected our many changes within the team. But sadly there comes a time where something can't continue. It's been a pleasure to work with Anexis, especially Toni and Stefan, and I hope they will find a team deserving of their time and effort.

I would like to thank Razer, and Ficken Liqeours for there trust in promoting their products. As a lineup we will be going our separate ways in trend with the current reshuffle in the scene, the games changing and people need to be able too adapt to change.

A closing statement - Anexis needed a Top sniper." - James "Mx" Smale's statement for

Team manager of Anexis, Toni Milicevic, explained that this is not the end for the organization within the CS:GO scene and that they will be on the lookout for a new squad, while George "hudzG" Hoskins was unable to say what the future holds for the British lineup.

Ex-Anexis lineup:

United Kingdom George "hudzG" Hoskins
United Kingdom Sam "RattlesnK" Gawn
United Kingdom James "Mx" Smale
United Kingdom Daniel "RE1EASE" Mullan
United Kingdom Lewis "Hughsy" Hughes

The team was expected to make an appearance at ESEA Season 14 Global Finals despite sitting in 5th place at the moment, but this news puts the North American event in jeopardy of not having four European teams attending, as all of Na`Vi,, ESC Gaming, fnatic and Copenhagen Wolves have also made changes to their lineups after ESEA's roster lockdown, and are thus ineligible to participate.

OMFG.. enough with the news already.. OVERLOAD

Anexis probably just released this squad to pick up 5 of the teamless players right now. Today is the perfect day for big orga's that want a better team to go for it. So new Anexis = ex ESC/VP
2013-07-19 03:57

After this day we won't have much spicy things... Enjoy it (except the fact that ESC are gone :[ )
2013-07-19 00:57
Oh boy... And the Nostalgie effect makes yet another victim. . .
2013-07-19 00:57
don't think Anexis have dropped them because of this 1 loss
2013-07-19 01:00
Of course not, but it may have been the breaking point. Just think about it... All these teams in the news today... All of them had "contact" with Nostalgie in one way or another... It's like a freaking curse, lol!

Sad for rattlesnk and co. Tbh, I thought they had improved quite a bit recently under the anexis banner, putting out some good scores including some good wins against reputable teams. Really thought they were going up but this is a set back. Mx also implying there might be a disband is sad as Britain once again will go without a team capable of competing at the top.
2013-07-19 01:19
loosing 16-0 to a mix in deciding match probably was too much .
2013-07-19 01:21
Are you sure Mx was not just making a joke? Because even Fifflaren knows the Rattlesnk comment was taken out of context.
2013-07-19 02:09
"As a lineup we will be going our separate ways in trend with the current reshuffle in the scene, the games changing and people need to be able too adapt to change.“

NOSTALGIE did all of this! - markeloff leaving NiP due to argues on NaVi-Nostalgie match (even relation states that Ukrainians were arguing on second and third map) - Anexis releasing CS:GO division due to loosing vs mix team - VP stars teaming up with markeloff <3 Nostalgie!
2013-07-19 01:47
markleoff leaves NIP !?? :p

No he don't give a shit, they have bought in Guardian as replace + f0rest can awp aswell. No worries
2013-07-19 04:02
makes sense tbh. One more question which I dont think anyone has brough up on this site and I think is a serious issue considering they are the best team in the world and have lost like 2 events ever; -fiff?
2013-07-19 04:14
You guys needed a Top sniper
2013-07-19 01:49

Fair enough it's a nice moment as the team didnt work out without you and Sam is a dick but you need to be playing at that level in a good team rather than enjoying this moment. gogogogogo
2013-07-19 03:37
I'm joking, me and mx are friends
2013-07-19 11:02
im not joking though and that team was a cuntbag coz Sam is a knob. gogogogogo and make a team already of non knobs with no arrogance and gl.

2013-07-19 02:10
Expected from the beginning of the squad honestly. Hopefully Anexis will be a bit wiser when picking their next roster.
2013-07-19 02:12
Every team that has Rattlsnake on it is doomed to fail it is just that simple. Also CS:GO if it continues like this wont last 2more years.

Finally, some good news today. Maybe now Anexis will pick up a team that isn't made up of oxygen thieves.
2013-07-19 02:45
agree with Mx, Rattlesnake worst and most overrated sniper in Counter-strikes history.
2013-07-19 02:46
It was a joke...
2013-07-19 09:23
He is awful though.
2013-07-19 10:01
He's not awful, he would still destroy most of the people on this forum. He just isnt up to par for the top tier at the moment.
2013-07-19 11:22
If he could do that he would have tried, but he can't.
2013-07-19 14:46
I'm obviously comparing him to the other top teir snipers. Like people calling fiff awful. Yes sadly they are both awful awpers compared to the other top teir awpers in the game right now. Fiff keeps improving last I saw though. RsnK has stood completely still since the game started having events.
2013-07-19 15:44

really sad, that last event was their best chance to make it and sadly, anexis choked in the later maps against nostalgi, despite having momentum and looking the better "team". can see why anexis had to cut them though...they haven't had any notable results. Hope the guys find a new home, together if poss or in different teams. So much talent there. It's not really an excuse, but UK has a habit of piling so much pressure on our athletes & teams. The fans and community are so quick to judge and say "he's shit, always has been etc" or whatever. Would be nice to see UK fans actually supporting THEIR representative team and showing some national pride... (and yeah, this also includes accepting Andy Murray as British! ;))
2013-07-19 10:41
This goes in every country i know. They got opportunities at Anexis and they are away due to bad results. Simple. Anyways they should go separate ways with hudzG and it would go ok.

Sad news. Hoping to see the players carry on within the scene....Maybe it was bad timing for the guys with exams taking priority over prac times...Who would've thought their future outside of gaming was more important..xD Really hope they carry on within the scene in some form, I would like to see Rattlesnk take up a coach/manager role for some up and coming UK team, can imagine he has a tone of knowledge that any up and coming team would love. It was certainly fun following you guys, just like the bloody England national footie team, bags of potential but a headache to watch at times. Best of luck guys!

I highly doubt Anexis will be picking up any top teams. You have to remember that they lost their last team(WW) because they weren't able to support them.
2013-07-20 09:35
exactly not. they dropped WW and picked bunch of UK noobs with high salaries. they increased their support a lot and got less out of it. that actually is what makes their decision so wrong lol
2013-07-21 15:16
That's because the whole valve community is devided into two parts: 1.6 and source players and CS:GO players.
2013-07-20 11:36
thats 3 ...
2013-07-20 12:06
I wrote not correctly. I meant 1.6 and source is one part of community and cs:go players are the second part. sorry
2013-07-20 12:15
gl in future anexis.
2013-07-20 11:57
Sad to see this, was my favourite team. Hopefully they'll stay together, even though Mx stated they're going their separate ways.
