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:

"Hey everyone,

"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.

"Sincerely, pyth!"

This move leaves SK Gaming with the following roster:

Sweden Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
Sweden Faruk "pita" Pita
Sweden Simon "twist" Eliasson
Sweden 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.

No he can't, don't mess shitty pugs with pro plays! How old is he now? 28? 29? Too old, no consistency, no 1ms reaction, he's not the same as in 2006. And stop calling names to people you don't know. You wouldn't dare to say it in my face.

reaction problem in 30 y/o? What the fuck i just read. Say it to Buffon, Klichko, Roy Jones, Fedor. imo spawn can't be those "spawn from 2005" only coz he has no time for games anymore.

2013-11-26 20:49
And do you think if they bring MODDII they will get the team chemistry in two days?No...at least they practice with pyth,they should kick him after this tournament,not now or at least before MSI.

I don't understand. SK pays off n! to buy Pyth before his contract is over, then he has one mediocre performance at a LAN so they immediately boot him? There must be something going on behind the scenes because this makes no sense. SK's chances at making it out of the groups were already slim considering they have to play AD and CPH, but now they're basically zero IMO
2013-11-26 20:21
Yes...MODDII is a free player now and they want him,so kick the new guy.
2013-11-26 20:22
and fuck up any team chemistry that might have existed just days before the tournament? .... good luck SK
2013-11-26 20:26

2013-11-26 21:32

2013-11-27 09:38
yes i know n0thing, Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert retard, you know a better worth orga available for ex-VG? EG has no csgo team same with mTw, and if SK disband (ofc ex-vg is bette than SK current line up so why not) and LDLC though are good enough and they havent csgo team too! tell me about other available orgas bro, virtus pro? Anexis? Epsilon?
2013-11-27 22:03

2013-11-28 06:22

2013-11-26 20:53
moddii goes to sk with no signing contract, he leaves sk to join fnatic again for 3rd time! Then sk makes a fuss about Moddi breakin contract!!
2013-11-26 20:56
So I'm guessing MODDII in for SK, won't help their chemistry though

2013-11-26 21:05
Why the teams best players kicking from teams? Edward ? Pyth ?
2013-11-26 21:08
even today hltv wrote about pyth being in SK... the csgo scene is so unprofessional it keeps surprising me how any company actually puts money to support it..
2013-11-26 21:09
"csgo scene" no dude this is just business as usual for sk
2013-11-26 21:10
i mean csgo in general check top team lineups from two months ago and see how much changed if i had money to invest in an eSport it definitely wouldn't be csgo ..
2013-11-26 21:12
I guess the reason is that individual skill is such a big factor in CS generally.. The grass always looks greener on the winners side of the fence.
2013-11-27 12:11
right, but how often do you see games decided by stuff like lack of communication, lack of coordination, poorly timed bombsite retakes, poorly timed entries, poorly timed spam, etc? instead of focusing on switching teams all the time and blaming someone else, they should really focus on improving their team play

what is wrong with SK they aint true sweeds stick together through the hard times.. JESUS probz kicked for a player like moddi who is known for conflict with everyone maybe because he is a grade A prick or just a massive ego thats why he can't stick with a team so if SK pick him up i give it up to DHW then they will be looking for a teamplayer :\
