n!faculty release CS:GO team
n!faculty have announced via their official website that they have parted company with their CS:GO division.
The news comes as a huge surprise as only 24 hours ago the Danish team had earned a spot in the EMS One Katowice European qualifier after topping the Nordic Regional Finals following a 2-0 victory over H2k Gaming.
Things seemed to be finally heading in the right direction for n!faculty, who opted for a pure Danish roster following disappointing experiences with their German and Swedish teams.
However, n!faculty have now been forced to release their CS:GO division as they will channel their yearly budget towards their League of Legends squad. The German organization will continue to support CS:GO, but for the foreseeable future they will only sign amateur teams.
"It is hard to face the truth, but today we have to announce that we will no longer cooperate with our current CS:GO team,” said n!faculty CEO Christian Kresse.
"In the last months we tried our best to get the financial base to keep a high class team. Within the last days we received final decisions of potential sponsors and we could finally finish the budget planning for 2014.
"In the end and due to our high expectations for all of our professional teams we had to choose between a League of Legends or CS:GO team. Because of the fact that League of Legends has become the number one eSport title with a big community that fits perfectly to the goals of the club, we decided to take a break from CS:GO regarding the professional business. Nevertheless CS:GO will be a part of the club within the club structure by having several amateur and rookie teams.
"Last but not least I want to thank the team, which was constantly informed about the circumstances. The players dealt great with this difficult and unsatisfied situation and showed great performances at several official matches. Therefore I want to thank all of the players and wish them the best of luck in the future."
With EMS One Katowice and Copenhagen Games just around the corner, the Danish team, who will go by the name unu.AiN, are now in a hurry to find a new organization.
"Today is a sad day! N!faculty have come to the conclusion that from today they no longer have the financial resources to maintain a top csgo team," Jacob "Pimp" Winneche said.
"It has been a real pleasure working with the n!faculty guys ever since I joined back in November. That have done everything as they promised, and have been constantly keeping us up-to-date with information about their situation.
"If it was up to us we would have stayed under their wings, but as it is a fact now that they cannot find the resources to have a top CSGO team, we are from this moment free on the market.
"That means we are now ready to talk with everyone who might be interested in signing us as their new CSGO team. The game itself is making a lot of progress with big tournaments being announced all the time. The same goes for our team. Since it was made we have been feeling the progress from every single practice night together.
"We are a core of 3 rather experienced players mixed up with two new strong talents! If this team could have any interest for anyone out there, feel free to contract us. You can reach us via mail: Kavob5@hotmail.com or Facebook.com/PimpCS.
"With that said I'm looking forward to what we hope will be a bright future. We have qualified for the IEM Katowice 250.000 $ European online qualifier finals, winning the Nordic qualifier without dropping a map. Also we have a new season of Gaming.dk SteelSeries League coming up, as well as a lot of other tournament that are yet to be announced!
"Last but not least, once again thanks to n!faculty for being as supportive as you have been, it has been a pleasure to work with you."
unu.AiN's team consists of the following players:
Phillip "Aizy" Aistrup
Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander
Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen
Jacob "Pimp" Winneche
