Method release team

Method have decided to release their Russian lineup with immediate effect and seek a new team.

Following a stint in North American Counter-Strike in 2015, esports organisation Method (whose roots lie in World of Warcraft) signed the ex-PiTER lineup in early January in the hopes of harnessing latent talent in the CIS region and watching it grow.

The new Method team encountered mixed results in the ensuing months, such as a 3-4th place finish at the CIS Minor and a 7-8th place finish at the Game Show GEC finals (where the Russian team had to use two Estonian stand-ins due to visa issues).

As a result, Dmitriy "facecrack" Alekseyev and his teammates attempted to remedy the situation with a roster change in March, bring in Igor "dERZKIY" Radosavlevich in lieu of Nikita "waterfaLLZ" Matveyev.


Method have dropped their Russian team following a lack of results

However, with results continuing to look lacklustre, the Method organisation have now announced that they have released their CS:GO team from contractual obligations, citing a "lack of good results and communication difficulties."

Method also mentioned that they will now begin the search for a new CS:GO lineup.

The ex-Method team is:

Russia Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan
Russia Savelii "jmqa" Bragin
Russia Dmitriy "facecrack" Alekseyev
Russia Alexey "ub1que" Polivanov
Belarus Igor "dERZKIY" Radosavlevich
