Astana Dragons lose CS:GO team

Astana Dragons' team have announced that they have parted company with the organisation.

Created back in July following the disbandment of the old squad, Astana Dragons have failed to live up to the hype surrounding the team.

A third-place finish at the ESWC finals did raise eyebrows, but then the team gave a pale account of themselves at DreamHack Winter and at the StarSeries finals, finishing 5th-8th and fourth in these two events, respectively.

More recently, it was announced that the team would not be able to attend the ESEA Finals in Dallas in January after being denied a visa permit to enter the United States.

As many feared, all is not well within the team, who have now decided to cut all ties with the AD organisation.

"We regret to inform that we have left the Astana Dragons project. The decision was mutual," team manager Sergey "lmbt" Bezhanov said.

"We are very grateful for the support that the organization gave us

“Sometimes we have had to face bitter experiences, but the team have decided to stay together, no matter what.

This is the beginning of something new. You will see us in 2014 with the same lineup, but with a different approach and with a new organization. Stay tuned…" 

Astana Dragons had the following lineup:

Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
Ukraine Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov
Ukraine Emil "kucher" Akhundov

+3 GamePub disbanded AD hhahaa (if i said corectly)
2013-12-30 20:59
GamePub made AD disband yeah ^_^
2013-12-30 21:32
How did they make AD disband if they're going to play with the same lineup?
2013-12-30 22:24
Lose their organisation at least, which payed their bills by the way.
2013-12-30 23:14
Astana Disband
2013-12-31 00:13
Gamepub is not even top10 what are you talking about lol
2013-12-31 01:07
You clearly don't know what's happening in CSGO scene. Ask them why they talking about GamePub. ROFL!
2013-12-31 03:15
2013-12-31 03:35
2013-12-31 10:21
So in your opinion gamepub is top10? I don't know what you are talking about, I only said gamepub is not a top team haha
2013-12-31 11:45
you really have no idea what you are going on about, do you?
2013-12-31 13:18
GamePub beat AD 2-0 at the last SLTV finals. still not clear?
2013-12-31 13:37
hahaha. LOL! Welcome to HLTV.ORG buddy. Now check this site everyday starting Later January 1 to be updated ;) Let's support eSports! Happy New Year!
2013-12-31 14:58
Are you all a bit challenged or why you assume I don't know about Gamepub 2:0 AD ? What i was thinking was this: AD were a top team but not in top5 Gamepub wins 2:0 against a top6-10 team Now gamepub top 10 too or what? LOL
2014-01-01 12:08
Who said GamePub is a top team already when they defeated AD? ROFL! You really PM me ha!? Next time read carefully and understand the comment before your hit the "reply" button. The comment where your replied just said "GamePub disbanded AD hhahaa (if i said corectly)". Did see any sentence there that he said GP is top 10 because they defeated AD 2-0? ROFL!
2014-01-01 13:16
I said GP is not a top team (which is true) and why exactly did you reply to me? Just to hate or was there another reason? I didn't say GP cheated and I didn't say they don't deserve this win or anything bad. Why you heff to be mad? Also, don't say when someone wrote you a PM, it is called "private" message for some reason.
2014-01-01 18:50
Because you replied to a guy with a non-sense reply. The guy said "GamePub disbanded AD hhahaa (if i said corectly)" But you replied "Gamepub is not even top10 what are you talking about lol" That's why I also replied "You clearly don't know what's happening in CSGO scene. Ask them why they talking about GamePub. ROFL!". I just told you that you clearly don't know what is happening to the pro scene. He just said that GP made AD to disbanded but you reply that GP not even top 10. lol too far from what the guy is talking that's why ;) -Your PM is sarcasm that's why I told it here ;)
2014-01-02 05:01
And why exactly you assumed that I don't know about the GP 2:0 AD score? If you look exactly, there is a big fucking list of recent match scores and you just assumed I was stupid enough to oversee it. I have the feeling that you don't think much of the people around you, but that doesn't mean they are more stupid than you or in any way inferior to you. My PM was meant serious. If I offended you then I am sorry for this.
2014-01-02 13:45
Because you are just fucking stupid who replied wrong! The guy topic was GP made AD disbanded but you're already saying WTF is he talking? GP not even top 10. Is that fucking right for you!? If you think you know what's happening, you won't replied that kind of message unless you did not read and understand carefully his message or you just really dont fucking know what's happining! Like that!? You want to talk trash!? LETS GO!
2014-01-02 14:13
It shows atleast that AD is shitty and GamePub is underrated? imo GamePub has soo much potential, because of their sick individual players
2014-01-01 13:59
I agree AD was bad But Gamepub underrated after 1 good match? I would not say that, because, maybe they just anti-strat AD, just like when VP beat NiP (i believe it was VP and NiP) >>> VP only beat NiP (i think it's fair to assume they did an anti-strat) but struggled against other top teams I hope to see AD players around and some good results from GP players in 2014, too :P
2014-01-01 18:47
Exactly.. :D

2013-12-30 19:43
markeloff was the weak link
2013-12-30 20:01
of navi or of AD?
2013-12-30 21:10
Considering both teams were/are better without him, I'd say both.
2013-12-30 21:13
Lithuania Slim Flug 
How do u know that ad is better w/out him ?
2013-12-31 00:17
because AD without markeloff is VP, and VP were much better than AD.
2013-12-31 02:12
Lithuania Slim Flug 
fear enough :)
2013-12-31 03:25
Errr no. AD would be VP with fox and Guardian, who were arguably the two best players on the team
2013-12-31 08:30
mind you they did still have success without guardian, but yea seems that ol' mark e mark didn't make the difference everyone thought he would
2013-12-31 09:31
VP lineup is Dosia, Fox, ANGE1, kucher, AdreN AD is the same lineup but with markeloff in place of Fox... VP would crush AD all day everyday
2013-12-31 16:53
That was at the beginning, towards the end AdreN left to play AVA and GuardiaN replaced him, and they kinda needed an awper
2014-01-01 10:56
VP with adren were better than VP with guardian, but that doesn't even matter. VP are better than AD, if they were to replace markeloff with fox, they would see instant results.
2014-01-01 14:16
2013-12-30 20:04
Finally! Now bring back Virtus.Pro
2013-12-30 19:35
Noooo! AGAiN was going to join VP.

2013-12-30 19:35
Oh damn! I guess VP comes back soon

2013-12-30 19:50
although ad destroyed 2 top teams and many of us have a grudge against them, it's a big loss for cs scene, less top teams - less competitiveness - boring tournaments the problem is they're banned by vp and there are no more solid organisations in cis
2013-12-30 19:51
Top team as in top 10 at most. New organization won't help them develop teamwork and awareness that they're too lazy to learn the game. They're done
2013-12-30 19:53
Cannot agree more. Nonchalance is most annoying...
2013-12-30 21:56
they are banned by vp? why is that ?
2013-12-30 20:09
because they violated an agreement between them and vp management and unexpectedly left (this story has justification from both sides, but the fact is that vp won't bring them again)
2013-12-30 20:21
I hope so. I want VP to pick up AGAiN.
2013-12-30 21:57
The scene has never been tighter than now though. Everyone can beat everyone - that's healthy for the game. AD hasn't been able to beat anyone so it's not a big loose really.

2013-12-30 20:04
That's a lot of hate for such a good team tbh, I hardly undertand ppl on this website. Who cares if they were believing too much, they still remain a solid top4/5 team.
2013-12-30 20:05
" Who cares if they were believing too much, they still remain a solid top4/5 team." That's not the reason why people hate them, that's more because they destroyed 2 great teams for childish reasons + kicked edward. Also navi has a huge fanbase so that doesn't help.
2013-12-30 20:11
As if they were initialy playing for the fans. I completely understand the changes and 2 great teams ? Despite being a giant on 1.6, former NaVi were nothing but a "great team" on cs:go (good maybe...) I honestly find that the 2 final squads are better. Fresh blood always good in a team.
2013-12-30 20:14
2013-12-30 20:17
You understand the changes ?VP has always been better than AD, Navi had potential in csgo, and markeloff/edward didn't give it time. I don't hate AD, but this whole decision was stupid imo.
2013-12-30 20:24
This was the best thing that could happen to NaVi, look at the poles they did the same. The only difference is that players came from another "top team".
2013-12-30 20:28
It may seem stupid but what would you, for example, have done instead?
2013-12-30 21:04
If I were markeloff or Edward I would give time to navi, and if I were a vp player I wouldn't think about changing anything, if that's what you're asking ofc.
2013-12-30 21:37
That sounds like an idea :P IMO it was good they made this change, to me it seemed like markeloff and edward were playing better than the other navi's yet didn't perform as a team and that they got frustrated cos of that and left Know what im saying? xP
2013-12-30 23:41
VP was top 2. cis ppl mad cuz no team top 3 anymore.
2013-12-30 20:12
VP was top 2 in a time where other teams were not able to compete yet. CSI always moan :D so

2013-12-30 22:27
Couldn't even beat gamepub in a bo3, how are they a top 4 team?
2013-12-31 01:00
Are you new here or why are you making conclusions from 1 single upset?
2013-12-31 01:11
Lol. Yeah I'm jumping to conclusions Now list all of their results that prove they're a top4 team
2013-12-31 01:26
mmhmm guurrrl, u tell him. mhmm
2013-12-31 01:51
2013-12-31 02:27
Then stop wanking off to Gamepub>AD lol
2013-12-31 12:39
Are you dumb? If they can't even beat a replacement team how can they stand up against VG and nip? They were never a top team
2013-12-31 14:36
Do you know the meaning of anti-strat? And do you remember Navi vs fnatic IEM4? Please don't call other people dumb when it is in fact you who did not understand the other person.
2014-01-01 12:11
Are you a plumber? No? Then stop bringing up old shit. This is 2014, not 2010.-
2014-01-01 17:56
What I meant, and what you obviously did not understand for whatever reason, was that being not taking serious can be a big advantage. Once people know about it, it will not be an advantage anymore though. >>>Nobody expected Na'Vi to win IEM4. It's a principle, it is not affected by the date we have today. Do you understand what I'm saying???
2014-01-01 19:01
So AD didn't take GP seriously. Apparently they don't take anyone else seriously either, since they can't seem to beat anyone on lan.
2014-01-01 19:07
What is your understanding of "they can't seem to beat anyone on lan"? Against whom did AD not win exactly? Nip and VG that's clear, but who else? (top20 teams only please) I don't think your theory is very accurate, no offense
2014-01-01 19:35
Most recently lgb and navi And why top20 teams only AD has never lived up to expectations and they destroyed 2 teams in the process
2014-01-01 19:40
okay LGB and navi, well they should have won but didn't. makes sense, you are right top20 teams only because i don't expect AD to watch demos of top100 teams = no anti strat for such teams (usually it is not needed because of big skill difference) I agree AD was never performing what people expected but destroyed 2 teams? I don't agree. Why? Navi was not performing. I think motivation issues was the reason. Markeloff and Edward "left" (not betrayed) navi VP was only winning against NIP afaik (and NIP against everybody else), i believe they just had good anti-strat for NIP but not for other top5 teams
2014-01-01 19:49
VP never antistrated NiP. Their super aggressive play style just countered the way nip were playing at the time. A top team is a top team, losing against low tier teams isn't an option. At sltv, with only 3 other teams attending how hard was it to dig up demos on all of them? AD were just cocky and didn't bother preparing against a team they deemed was bad. That unprofessionalism lost them not only sltv but their sponsorship as well.
2014-01-01 20:13
Okay I believe you that VP never antistrated NIP, I didn't watch enough matches to confirm that by myself. I am sorry if I didn't express myself very well, but I didn't search for excuses for AD to deserve the win. They played bad because they weren't prepared, they didn't "respect" their enemy, GP played fair and AD lost. In no way, AD deserved to win. Congratulations GamePub! Last thing I have to say: I don't like the whole hate-bandwagon on AD. Hating doesn't move AD forward and it most certainly doesn't move you or anyone else forward. peace :)

2013-12-30 20:07
Karma watches you bastards! There is a good chance for markeloff to come back to Na`Vi, however, this squad is still able to find an orga, yet vp didnt announce their csgo team. It depends on whether they pick up AGaiN or not, as LeX said(before disband of AD) they'd like to have polish squad of cs:go, but due to suddenly changed situation, vp has to decide what's the best way for them, to pick up those who have left them because of money or those who will stay in this orga unless become unable to provide themselves.
2013-12-30 20:08
ANGE1, Dosia, AdreN & co. will never go again to VP after the scandal they had before.
2013-12-30 22:06
If they do Lex will make them sign a very strict contract.
2014-01-01 22:04
skineloff you mean,if he would be playing as good as many skins he has,he would be best player#world. AD project failed hard anyway. Edward has troll face weared now, i guess he's happy <3 . edward 1 - 0 ange1

Virtus Pro Hello!
2013-12-30 20:13
they got kicked from VP and from AD aswell
2013-12-30 20:16
That line up is like the Twilight saga. Don't strike off VP just yet! <3
2013-12-30 20:22
virtus will take neo's team (80% sure) i've got checked info
2013-12-30 20:17
2013-12-30 20:19
omg.. wait i will find it but its in polish. byali was streaming and on the stream he turned on the fb site and one of viewers made screenshot. there were neo's team group where they write all about turnaments and organisations. there was a post about virtus pro organisation proposition and in comments pasha said he agree.,25962,again-w-virt..
2013-12-30 20:25
Pasha said he us for signing the deal ASAP. However there was no announcement yet, so I'm afraid they might have blown their chance to sign VP.
2013-12-30 22:01
IT"S A VERY SAD DAY FOR CS:GO!!! not really.

NaVi - seized + markeloff what a dream :D
2013-12-30 20:19
seized > markeloff
2013-12-30 20:22
Agree Tho I think markeloff should have quit AD when Edward was kicked (because mark was not really part of the team) and they should have joined Na'Vi together with GuardiaN.
2013-12-30 20:58
tbh seized is better rifler than markeloff, and guardian is better awper than markeloff
2013-12-30 22:55
Seized >> Markeloff

2013-12-31 01:02
he is the "water boy" on lan events now
2013-12-31 17:54
Hype man. He's gonna yell obscenities at the opposing team so the players can focus on the game.
2013-12-31 18:25
Every one in this team has what it takes to be on the top. The problem they all have is team play. Dosia was never and never will be a team player. Same goes for AdreN their individual skills match the ones of f0rest or GeT_RighT the problem is they never learned how to play the team game. The other 3 well markeloff is markeloof and kucher and ange1 can be a back bone of a great team if they stop going for the star positions in the teams they play in because they are not those type of players they are the Loord type of players or the ceh9's if you want. Sadly if they stick together and they don't find a way to play as a team this team will die in the next 6months it doesn't matter what orga they get.
2013-12-30 21:03
The problem is that ANGE1 is a shit captain, if they had Zeus instead they would be top 1 easy.
2013-12-30 22:11
no they wont be top 1 easily stop saying bullshit like this, we saw ex-VP and ex-NaVi and what they did, then came AD and everyone was like OMG top1 is coming for sure and I wont be suprised if u were one of those comments and how they end up ?

Hey dani, dani. put your ass on the chair and calm down ;) I wrote disband but I was thinking about losing team. My words don't change anyways.
2013-12-31 22:00
Disband means when players no longer play for the same team. One goes off, other two to another team, etc.. learn the words you write
2014-01-01 01:55
disband means sponsor feel s yo'llshit and kick your as

you will probably find even with their results that the organisation was putting a huge amount of pressure on them and they couldn't stick it -hopefully they csn put up some decent results next year.

For all the n00bs who dont understand English and typing things like: "SO SAD", "SAD FOR MARIK" or "GOOD" or whatever let me clear something out once again: AD ARE NOT DISBANDING, LOL, THERES NO CHANGES AT ALL! AD left the organization themselves to join the other, but players remain the same, so nothing changed besides the TAG they'll be wearing... hahahaha so funny! love this! :D
2013-12-31 00:31
stfu AD fanboy they didn't left, probably they got kicked cause they fucking SUCK!
2013-12-31 00:54
2013-12-31 01:16
One hindrance is that they did not perform up to expectations. There are so many teams available that have stability and results to back their demands. Ex-AD might end up with worse organization.
2013-12-31 00:58
middle team staying middle fuck the org>??? you made my day bro
2014-01-01 11:40

All the people here are hating so much. But not even 1 of you has achieved that much the guys did. So why do you see urself legitimate to comment on, how shitty they are ? Just go and do it better before you start to complain. The only thing all of you might comment on, is what organization they are gonna have and not about any lineup changes, since most of you are not able to figure out that they are gonna stay with the same line up for 2014.

2013-12-31 12:46
Best comment in this thread, thanks for posting it Seriously if i could chose, i would rather be hated than being a hater because being a hater is pathetic.
2013-12-31 12:45
Wow you're retarded. By that logic, no one's ever allowed to criticize anything a public figure does unless they can do it better themselves. It's like saying "you're not allowed to hate on justin bieber's music if you can't sing better" Astana Dragons job was to play counterstrike, they did it badly, people are allowed to have opinions on that. I do my job better than they do theirs. Fuck off.
2014-01-01 16:12
Oh dude, its not a criticism anymore, its hating and offending people, and thats generally not the best way to go, but people here havent achieved anything but still flame as hell. I dont say anything about criticism but just take a look on the comments, u cant call this a opinion anylonger.

So 2 of the top 5 teams don't have an org as of today (ex-VG and ex-AD). That's semi-funny.
2013-12-31 08:10
AD were not top 5 :) they were good but there are a few better teams .. NiP , ex-VG, ex-CPH Wolves , Fnatic and with this lineup Na'Vi
2013-12-31 11:32
Of course, that is up for discussion. It's quite tight between a lot of teams but I would still put them in top 5 in my list.
2013-12-31 12:03
they lose to some unknown flag mix team online on a bo3 yes bo3 and you say they top 5 you made day bro
2014-01-01 11:42
They've also beaten NiP in a bo3. One result doesn't define a team's rank.

they had half year to improve and to show who they are but they failed so imo it was the right decision from the organization

it surely was NOT half year, since they had changes in roster lately
2013-12-31 16:20
1.6 come back pleeeasseeee :( valve wake up !
2013-12-31 11:02
waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Here's a tissue for your tears.

Sorry, but kucher does not belong in the scene. He's similar level to a typical global elite you'd find in matchmaking, nothing special about him at all.
2013-12-31 11:22
So the ranks in matchmaking are now constants?

AD is now TOP 1 fail. Sad for Dosia.Happy for Edward and Guardian.
2013-12-31 12:04
The amount of +1s in comments would give google plus a heart attack here. Unfortunate for AD, they were promising if they'd stick for a while more.

Oh well, perhaps this might trigger yet another round of the great CIS shuffle.

The future of AD imo: Adren will get kicked from current lineup; Dosia will go Kerchnet; markelloff quit.

2014-01-01 14:51
why is it always the commentators on this site want to make a "super team", NaVi has a good roster, they don't need makreloff
2014-01-01 16:09
markeloff already was in Navi. you talking like he never was there
2014-01-25 10:31
Such a mistake disbanding two awesome teams, VP and Na'Vi, just in order to make a potentially more powerful team.. which could not show its best over a long time. But OK, its past. Lets see what will happen next.
2014-01-01 15:33
But Na`Vi are stronger now :D
2014-01-02 06:09
Again joined Virtus why no news ??

2014-01-01 16:54
Read the article.
2014-01-01 17:15
They dropped this team cause they are going to pick up a League of Legends team which they will invest to.
2014-01-01 20:56
Bunch of great players, cant wait to see more from you in the future :)
