Norse announce disbandment
Norse's players have decided to go their separate ways, Morten "zEVES" Vollan has revealed on Twitter.
The announcement comes in the aftermath of Norse's disappointing performance in the BYOC qualifier for Copenhagen Games, in which they were eliminated in the Round of 16 following a 1-2 defeat against eXtatus.
Formerly known as deadweight, the Norwegian team created Norse, a player-owned organization, in October, joining the ranks of esports marketing company RFRSH, which also has ties to Astralis, Heroic and GODSENT.
Norse finished top 16 at last year's ESWC
At the time of the announcement, Morten "zEVES" Vollan mentioned that the goal was to compete with the top 20 in the world before the end of the year, but the team never reached such heights. Their biggest achievements were winning two local tournaments, the Gigacon PRIME Championship and Telenorligaen Winter.
On Twitter, zEVES revealed that he is willing to listen to coaching offers. As for the remaining players, their future is subject to conjecture at this point.
Norse had the following players:
We in Norse will be parting ways with rfrsh, and I want to thank all that rfrsh has done for us; it's been great working with them. 1/2— Morten Vollan (@zEVEScsgo) April 18, 2017
Regarding the team we will part ways with no bad feelings. We fought and worked hard but never got a breakthrough. Thanks for everything 2/2— Morten Vollan (@zEVEScsgo) April 18, 2017
