ALTERNATE dismiss CS:GO team

Team ALTERNATE have parted company with their CS:GO division, Azmican "asmo" Berberoglu has confirmed.

The news comes just weeks after the German team were left with a four-man crew following Christian "Rak" Hermenau-Puhlvers' decision to become inactive to focus on his career.

It was the latest of a series of blows to the former Berzerk team, who had just come off a 3rd-4th place finish at the EPS finals in Cologne.

asmo & co lose ALTERNATE support 

In recent weeks, the team had been playing with Alexander "alexRr" Frisch, formerly of MTF, as their fifth player and were hoping to stay on at ALTERNATE, but the organisation decided to give the players their marching orders.

"Alternate and the players have agreed that our paths should go in different ways," Berberoglu told

"We of course want to thank the sponsors for their continuous support and time. We will return to our ESWC 2012 tag Berzerk, and continue to stick together as a team.

"We're looking forward to what the future has in store for us, and hope that we can get a good amount of offers from organizations.

"If there is an organisation out there that can offer us LAN support, please write us an e-mail to"

Berzerk's lineup looks as follows:

Germany Felix "fel1x" Zech
Germany Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend
Switzerland Manuel "SolEk" Zeindler
Germany Azmican "asmo" Berberoglu
Germany Alexander "alexRr" Frisch

The only time German cs will have a chance is if someone decides to build a team around kRYSTAL and a few other young/experienced players. Till then, I guess it's back to cheating
2014-06-03 17:10

Still wondering why mouz guys aren't kicked.
2014-06-03 17:19
Mouz focuses on the german scene. and tbh these guys are the best in germany even though they suck in international events so they have no other choice unless they decide to let go of the german scene. and just go for swe/dk
2014-06-03 17:36
2014-06-03 17:21
Really idiotic decision. New alternate roster is way worse
