kRYSTAL seeks new opportunities

kRYSTAL's contract with PENTA has expired and he is therefore looking for new opportunities, which means the roster is now back to only two players.

Just 16 days ago PENTA confirmed the signing of the Finnish player Miikka "suNny" Kemppi, and the roster now had three active players after they lost Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran, Tahsin "tahsiN" Broschk and Mike "mikeS" Tuns. Now they are down to two again.


kRYSTAL's contract with PENTA has just expired, and he is now a free agent. 

It is Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend who has decided to seek new opportunities after his contract with PENTA expired. He wrote on Twitter that he is open for new offers now.

He has not decided to leave his old teammates for good yet as he writes in an answer to his tweet that he is just looking at his opportunities.

PENTA have had a rough time lately as they did not manage to stay in ESL Pro League after they lost to LDLC in the relegation match. 

Moving forward PENTA currently have:

 Stefan "stfN" Seier
 Miikka "suNny" Kemppi

He's got a lot of potential, I can see him finding a good team, maybe in NA?
2017-02-01 10:30
potential??? he has played since 2013, still shit
2017-02-01 10:38
+1 forever tier 3 player. some players will never ever get to tier 1 level and krystal is one of these players. good aim but stupid in the head.
2017-02-01 10:53
below mediocre aim*
2017-02-01 11:04
i think he has decent aim but not with awp. also he can somewhat compete in FPL.
2017-02-01 11:10
well, all NA teams (not counting SK) are tier 2-3 so, he fits in pretty well
2017-02-01 11:23
i dont think any na team will offer him anything. also he doenst wanna move anywhere either.

"stupid in the head" May I ask why you think that? I am surely not a fan of kRYSTAL, but enough to know that one of his strengths is his gamesense. He understands the game better than many other (pro) players. Have you ever played with him or have you talked to his former team mates to get that information?
2017-02-02 03:41
what makes tier 1 pro player. good aim good ingame decisions. krystal does not have both. thats why hes alwyas a tier 3 player.
2017-02-02 13:28

World hIRN 
That doesn't make him stupid though. Plus I do actually think krystal does good ingame decisions.
2017-02-02 13:41
but he doesnt really. either he would be playing in mouse already. hes forever tier 3 player. accept it. dont reply to me anymore, jerk.

Incredible. "Accept it" - implying I'm kRYSTAL's biggest fan that can't accept he's shit so I have to desperately try to argue with some shitter from HLTV. To be honest, I really don't think that kRYSTAL is anywhere near a top1 player - just like I've said, I'm not a fan by any means. Yet he is not stupid. You implied his lack of "brain" causes him to not be "good" (good on a very high level of course) - although everyone that actually knows something about him knows that his knowledge in CS is one of his best skills. You are out of arguments, you realised you were wrong so you now begin insulting me and requesting me to stop arguing with you so that nobody realises you're wrong. HLTV monkeys are easy to look through. "either he would be playing in mouse already" I guess you're just stupid. No you're not? Why aren't you studying at Harvard then? (same logic, if you don't understand what I mean) Anyways, he isn't playing for mouz yet because mouz have an awper (ChrisJ/ now oskar) that is apparently even better at aiming/ making ingame decisions than kRYSTAL (at least for mouz) which again doesn't automatically make kRYSTAL a shit player. Anyways, what I wanted to say all along: if kRYSTAL has a problem, then it's surely his aim (and maybe his lack of experience) but not his CS knowledge/ brain.
2017-02-02 20:10
its his aim then. he fucking blows. and will always be tier 3 pplayer. just fucking accept it. he will never reach t1 team. or mouse. think about it. denis and spiidi are both fucking horrible yet they are still better than krystal. GG.. REKT.
2017-02-02 21:27
How much of his response did you read?
2017-02-03 06:19
And was a well known cheater before that
2017-02-01 11:02
+1 i can`t believe how fast people forget this. for me, he will always be a cheating dwarf
2017-02-01 11:56
-1 cant believe how stupid people are actually i do not like krystal as a person, indeed i think hes a silly dumbass but the last time he was proved cheating, he was 13-14 years old and not even close to be a pro player he was pugging around and playing casual css thats when he got banned seems like most of the guys hate him cuz this cheating accusation, but actually he did only cheat as teen, and not even in official matches lol
2017-02-01 13:39
i dont give a fuck. even at 13-14 you can make good and bad decisions. and yes: cheating on something other people do for fun and ruining their game is a bad thing.
2017-02-01 22:28
ofc its a bad thing, but 99& of the fucking pro players do cheat or were cheating either wallhacking in pracc or officals to win dem cash and you guys blame a 13 year old guy for cheating in pugs the stupidy is real
2017-02-02 00:00
For the record, I don't give a fuck that he cheated and I don't think it should affect his pro career now, I just brought it up to create a bit of drama on hltv But here is your obligatory hltv comment "flag checks out"
2017-02-02 12:12
could tell the same story about flusha it has nothing to do with my nationlity flusha is a great player, no matter if he cheats/did cheat
2017-02-02 14:36
Potential refered in this case to "the potential to play in a ok good team", not the potential to become a superstar because he is a young talent
2017-02-01 11:24
Already in a ok good team

Always was a fan of krystal. Make a good german team yourself. Scout new talent yourself. You have to realize that nothing will come to you, you have to do everything yourself. Learn something positive from betrayal, don't learn to give up from it. Encourage other german players to play in fpl more and recruit top german players from fpl into a makeshift team to try out.
2017-02-01 10:36
He created denis, nex and spiidi!

2017-02-01 10:39
honestly that team was super bad apart from oskar. at least now he can get players that he can actually win with. shit ton of talent with potential out there.
2017-02-01 10:54
they shoould add ropz, who else u thinkin?
2017-02-01 11:23
i was actually thinking about the same thing. ropz is insane. maybe jayzar or smooya to awp. or zehn. fpl road aint that bad. they can get issa or frozen. maybe even joelz as long as its the online part. all they need to do is make playoffs with first seed, then they will most probably face a shit pro team like ldlc. getting first seed may be hard with all the good teams but if they focus only on premier they might actually take it with a crazy ass fragging lineup.
2017-02-01 11:57
hes not insane but hes decent. really wish penta would pick him up. stopped reading at joelz. he will never ever be part of any team. also chrisj as awper. theres not many options tho because jkaaems team will take away all good players. and no t1 player will play in penta cuz shit ssalary
2017-02-01 12:00
chris will either be in a top international/german team or move to na. penta is neither and they are not even in pro league. joelz will never last in a team but he can play in a pug team as long as its online. they dont need any proven barely t1 players. they need young talent and firepower.

There's huge amount of free agents atm. I wonder if this actually from PENTAs side to show door to kRYSTAL. suNny Scream jkaem fox chrisj/stfn would make a good team. But what I have snifferd from "weird" tweets, it is most likely that some preagreed shuffles/roster changes have been cancelled.

well, that could work, but sunny is in the team now they got fucked when they had the spot for the major, until mousesports took the 3 players from them, making them losing the major and difficulting their chances to atract good players. They really need a shift and figuring out if they want to invest in a team to play for major qualifications or just a cheap one, picking up young talents to sell them when they explode

also if they go full eu or keep 3 germans in the team.. big changes for the org.
