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.

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 www.anexis.de.
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.

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, Virtus.pro, ESC Gaming, fnatic and Copenhagen Wolves have also made changes to their lineups after ESEA's roster lockdown, and are thus ineligible to participate.
