SK Gaming remove pyth
SK Gaming have removed Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi from their roster just two days after finishing third at MSI Beat it! 2013 Grand Finals in Beijing, China.
The Swedes of SK Gaming were en route to a comfortable second place finish in Beijing as they scored an early 11-4 terrorist side lead on de_mirage against fnatic in a group stage match before things went south.
The team led by Faruk "pita" Pita had to surrender the lead to a fnatic team who wound up stealing their bracket path and pairing SK up with VeryGames instead, with the former having to settle for a third place finish after a win versus Vox Eminor.
This SK Gaming roster only lasted one tournament
Upon returning home to Sweden for last minute preparations the team let Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi know he's been removed from the team, under fourty-eight hours before DreamHack Winter is set to kick off.
Mourujärvi announced the change on his own Facebook page, where he also stated his future plans of attending DreamHack Winter's BYOC qualifier together with TC:
"As I said there was big news coming up, sadly to say this but I got kicked from SK Gaming. This doesn't mean that I'm gonna quit playing I will still go to Dreamhack and play BYOC together with TC (zende kab0m max & hmp) and keep on playing because I still feel motivated and I am pumped for Dreamhack.
This move leaves SK Gaming with the following roster:
Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
Faruk "pita" Pita
Simon "twist" Eliasson
Jerry "xelos" Råberg
According to rumours in the community, a likely replacement for Mourujärvi is former fnatic member and both Larsson and Pita's MYM teammate Andreas "MODDII" Fridh, though nothing has been announced yet.
