RCTIC lose CS:GO team

RCTIC eSports and their CS:GO team have parted ways, Slaava "Twista" Räsänen has told HLTV.org.

The Finnish team joined the ranks of RCTIC in September after impressing under Epiphany Bolt, with the players leaving their jobs and studies at the start of the year to play CS:GO full time.

During their time with RCTIC, the team won a number of minor LAN tournaments in Europe, the biggest of which being the Nordic Masters Season 2 finals, which were held in February, in Älmhult.


Twista & co leave RCTIC 

Contacted by HLTV.org, Slaava "⁠Twista⁠" Räsänen explained that the team and RCTIC had a different vision about the future, which made the players seek a new organisation to continue their careers.

"Our future plans and goals were different from theirs, which made us look for a new home for us," he told HLTV.org.

"We had a good journey with them and appreciate everything they have done for us, but it is time to move on.

"We have decided to look for a new home, we are looking for a long-term relationship in which we can once again rely on the support of an organisation and fully focus on playing Counter-Strike.

"All organisations interested in picking us up can contact me by email at slaava.rasanen@gmail.com."

The Finnish team, who will play under the name LGR until a new home is found, have the following roster:

Finland Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha

"We have decided to look for a new home, we are looking for a long-term relationship in which we can once again rely on the support of an organisation and fully focus on playing Counter-Strike." Guess the rumors of RCTIC pulling the plug on the CS teams salary and housing if they didn't improve their results was true after all. Not surprising from RCTIC as they are a small org, and the team hasn't really performed up to the standards of what you would expect from a truly full-time professional team.
2016-06-15 23:34
Expected for Finnish team to drop out of paying org and form some random gather and split up again. ence will follow soon

"Our future plans and goals were different from theirs" The harsh fact is there is no org that will put money into a losing team. They are a bad team which is not making money for the org. It's business, not charity.
