Fraternitas lose team
Martin "styko" Styk and company have left Fraternitas with immediate effect due to "unfulfilled promises and payments" on the organization's co-owner's part.
Nearly two months ago nEophyte merged with a new organization Fraternitas, including main sponsor and co-owner, Tomáš "kubrahead" Kubrický.
There were already hints at disagreements within Fraternitas back then, since the team's previous coach, Ivan "Dev1" Lazarov, was left out in the cold under unspecified circumstances.

Today the team left Fraternitas, citing "unfulfilled promises" and "blatant lies" from Kubrický concering money transfers as the reason, both in the past with nEophyte and in the recent weeks with Fraternitas.
According to Martin "STYKO" Styk, the amount of money owed to the team surpasses 100,000 CZK (approximately $4,000), which has not been paid over the course of five months.
The team captain stressed that that was the case only with the co-owner and not the organization itself, and shed a little more light on the problems in the following statement given to HLTV.org:
"We decided to leave Fraternitas with immediate effect. Problem with management came before in nEophyte and we thought merging with Fraternitas would solve some of them but it did not happen. It got worse and we got promised a lot of things, nearly none of which were fullfiled. Our manager repeatedly and blatantly lied to us about money transfers he promised, making it in total of over 100,000 CZK over last 5 months.
Unfortunately, we are not the only people he is "scamming", as our ex-coach and popular streamer Ivan "Dev1" Lazarov, who was forced out of our lineup without our knowledge, is having same troubles as we are. But I promised to stay out of this at least for now. On the other hand it is needless to say that Fraternitas as organisation was always on point in communication. It is just case of one co-owner who ruined our relationships.
We are now seeking another source of support in the form of an organisation. We are open to basically anything worth our level of play. If you are interested you can contact our team via e-mail email@example.com."
The team is sticking together and as explained above, the following lineup is on the lookout for a new organization to represent:
