pyth removed from AliGon DH squad
After topping the closed DreamHack Summer 2014 qualifier with his mixteam AliGon, Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi has been removed from the squad.
The news comes just days after AliGon, which also features former SK Gaming star Marcus "Delpan" Larsson, topped the qualifier with wins over .no, ALTERNATE and Reason.
Mourujärvi announced his removall from AliGon on his Facebook page last night, stating he hopes to put it past him and enjoy DreamHack Summer as a spectator instead:
"Hey, I got some sad news for ya'll. I won't be attending DH Summer 2014 with AliGon due to being replaced by someone else, even tho we were a mix team I looked forward going there as I was hungry for revenge from the last time I was there (with Publiclir.se aka Team X) when we almost managed to beat NiP in the groupstage but lost in the overtime thanks to a amazing ninja defuse from Xizt," Mourujärvi posted on Facebook.
"Just wanted to share this since many of you have been wondering if I were going to DH Summer with AliGon or not.
"Anyways, lets not be too sad about it and just put the past behind us. Hopefully we can enjoy some sexy Counter-Strike at DHS without me being there
"I could also need a small break from Counter-Strike as I've been playing much lately, so hopefully this is something positive for me ^^
Mourujärvi attended last year's DreamHack Summer with mixteam Team X, playing under the Publiclir.se brand at the event, and came within inches of knocking NiP out in the group stage.
It is unknown who will replace the former SK Gaming and n!faculty member at DreamHack Summer, with four players currently remaining in the AliGon roster:
Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
Hampus "hMp" Netzell
Morten "zEVES" Vollan
Jerry "xelos" Råberg
DreamHack Summer will take place at Elmia in Jönköping on June 14-16 with HLTV.org on-site to provide full coverage, including galleries, demos and statistics, of the $30,000 event.
