SKDC change three

SapphireKelowna have announced that they have revamped their roster with the additions of three new players.

SKDC have established themselves as a prominent figure in the upper echelon of the North American CS:GO scene over the last year, even though they always seem to fall short when paired against the top sides of the continent.

Following a disappointing seventh-place finish and a 3-11 record in the last ESEA Season, SKDC captain Kyle "⁠OCEAN⁠" O'Brien has decided to dismiss Owen "⁠wabbit⁠" Farrelly, Terrence "⁠Tvu⁠" Vu and Tyler "⁠Char⁠" Wallace, while retaining the services of Ellis "⁠els⁠" Clay.

To replace the departing trio, OCEAN approached Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski, an up-and-coming talent who raised a few eyebrows in JusTus Pro, and former Mobility duo Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz and Addison "⁠zecK⁠" Gorzeck.

"After a disappointing season in ESEA-Invite, we decided that a few changes were necessary," O'Brien told HLTV.org. "We kept the same core of the roster, and brought in upcoming talent in the shape of EliGe, stan, and zecK.

"We’re excited to get started and compete at the highest level. Our goal is to establish ourselves as a serious contender in the CS scene, which also means that we are seeking to represent an organization that shares this ambition.

"After 8 seasons of playing under SapphireKelownDotCom, we have mutually parted ways, and are thankful for all the support they have given us. We hope to find a new home soon; as we are eager to prove that we are a top tier team."

All organisations interested in sponsoring the former SKDC team can contact the players via e-mail at kyle_obrien1987@hotmail.com.

SKDC had the following lineup:

Canada Kyle "⁠OCEAN⁠" O'Brien
Canada Ellis "⁠els⁠" Clay
Canada Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz
United States Addison "⁠zecK⁠" Gorzeck
United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski

2014-12-30 08:51
That's what unskilled untalented people tell themselves. You wish you could run off and be a pro player but you don't have anything near what it takes so you tell yourself it's because you choose not to. Why are you even on hltv shouldn't you be "focusing on school and social life". You're hilarious. I'm sure if you focused on cs you would still be shit and you know it.

no, the sad thing is that u dont wanna understand that even low tier alemannios like mykpv.de or some shit would beat some muricano low team with ease. whats even sadder is that i didnt even talk about that to begin with and u just ran out of brain to comprehend what i was saying before. probably have a concussion from someone beating u with an icehockey stick bcs u sad something bad about the calgary flames or whatever so ur excused for that.

"Hah better than you will ever be" Yeah and Justin Bieber is a successful artist, doesn't mean he isn't shit. They play at that level and deserve to be judged accordingly, not but by your retarded logic. Also, 3-11. 3-11. 3-11. 3-11 proves differently about them not being a low tier team

The fact that Justin Bieber is one of the most successful artists means that he isn't shit. Yes his music isn't great - but that's all down to opinion... Sorry but your comparison is bad.

Yeah, but keeping 2 players shouldn't be considered "a core." It should be keeping 3 or 4 players.

I guess the definition of core is up for reader interpretation
2014-12-30 03:26
2 replies
It's certainly somewhat opinion. But a core, to me, seems to be something that's "at least" half of a unit. It's the centralized part of an object. For instance, you could consider Neo, TaZ and Pasha to be the "core" of VP, since they're from the now defunct "golden 5." I can't think of another time when I read an article where a team was considered as "keeping their core" after 3 players were swapped.
2014-12-30 03:33

Yeah this is just a duo being retained and another 3 players being brought in to essentially create a new team. There is no core at all lol.
