Courage lose CS:GO team

Courage Gaming and their CS:GO team have parted ways, Alexander "s1mple" Kostylev has confirmed.

Created in February, the Ukrainian team look on paper to be one of the strongest sides in CIS, but they have so far failed to live up to the hype as they lie in 13th position in the StarSeries league, with just five points from 14 matches.

April seemed to be a very busy month for Courage, who had qualified for the cup in Voronezh, Russia, and signed up for Copenhagen Games.

However, it has now been revealed that the players have parted ways with the Courage organisation after learning that it would not be sending them to the event in Russia nor to CPH Games.


B1ad3's team looking for a new organisation

At their own expense, Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's side still decided to attend Voronezh's cup, where they have already reached the semi-final stage, but they were forced to pull out of CPH Games.

Hashtag's lineup looks as follows:

Ukraine Alexander "s1mple" Kostylev
Ukraine Konstantin "Pr1zraK" Krivosheev
Ukraine Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy
Ukraine Roman "z1" Poltavchenko
Russia Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin

I really can't understand how this ALWAYS happens a few days before an event: "after learning that it would not be sending them to the event in Russia nor to CPH Games". I mean what the fuck, the date is known since forever and they had more than enough time to prepare and ask their org to go there. I imagine a conversation about it like this: players: Btw, next week is CPHGames and we plan to go there. org: nope players: kk, bye. I mean, isn't that one of the first things you discuss when signing an org?
