Refuse lose team
Serbian team ended their cooperation with Refuse today and also confirmed that they have made a lineup change, removing Nemanja "k1Ng0r" Bošković and adding Nestor "1NTEL" Tanić.
After two months under the Refuse name, Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović's team decided that it's best if the two sides parted ways.
The only LAN event they attended under the organization in that period was DreamHack Bucharest, where they didn't make it past a group with VeryGames and Lemondogs (now known as SK Gaming).
Meanwhile, they also finished 9-12th in RaidCall EMS One for the second season in a row, missing out on the LAN finals but securing spots for next season's cups.
NiKolinho & co. leave Refuse
The team's in-game leader Trifunović commented on the matter, saying there were no problems with the organization, but the two sides had different goals:
"Refuse are honest and ok people, but we were unable to reach an agreement that suits both sides, so we thought it was best if we part ways. We wish them all the best in their search for a new team.
"We will be going back to our old name iNation for now, and the plan is to focus on RaidCall EMS One Winter season, Fragbite Masters and DH Winter qualifiers."
Another piece of news from them is confirmation that Nemanja "k1Ng0r" Bošković is no longer in the lineup due to internal differences:
"We still respect him a lot as a player and I believe he is one of the best players in the Balkans, but we felt that he hasn't been a part of the team for a while. We tried to resolve the issue, but it didn't work so we were basically forced to make a change.
"Currently we're testing a lineup with our old teammate Nestor "1NTEL" Tanić who will play with us at this weekend's Gaming Festival in Belgrade.
"We think that our future as a team is bright and you can expect more news from us soon." - Trifunović said to HLTV.org.
iNation now have the following lineup:
Nikola "NiKolinho" Kovač
Janko "YNk" Paunović
Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović
Luka "emi" Vuković
Nestor "1NTEL" Tanić
The team will be attending the $1,350 Gaming Festival in Belgrade, Serbia this weekend where they will be the main favorites for first place, while they are also in the last stage of Fragbite Masters Qualifier #1, set to meet Danish team AESTHETIC on Thursday for a spot in the group stage.
