Tricked set to lose team

Tricked have announced that they will not be extending the contracts of their CS:GO squad.

In a statement, Tricked CEO Morten "Phy" Jensen explained that the management and the team could not come to an agreement regarding a contract renewal, with the players free to pursue other opportunities after June 30.

This brings to an end a year-long association with team captain Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen, who was recruited in May 2016 to lead the former Reason Gaming squad.

HUNDEN's team seek a new home

While representing Tricked, the team's most notable achievements include a semi-final run at Copenhagen Games, a 5th-8th place at ESWC and a 5th-6th place at DreamHack Open Tours.

"We had many talks with our players and the board over the last couple months, without any real progress, while they received a lot of offers after their performance at Dreamhack Tours," Mr. Jensen said in a statement.

"The era of God Hunden has to come to an end.

"While we're saddened about it, Nicolai has been with Tricked for over a year now, and I'm very proud of the results we ended up with, after more than 12 months of hard work.

"It's hard to find more dedicated players, with the drive and ambition to become the best.

"Hunden has been the captain of the team, helping the new players feel welcome and shotcalling for everyone.

The Tricked boss added that the organisation is already on the lookout for a new team, with news expected in time for the Summer event season.

The Danish team consist of:

Denmark Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen
Denmark Patrick "es3tag" Hansen
Denmark Johannes "b0RUP" Borup
Denmark Asger "AcilioN" Larsen
Denmark Michael "Friis" Jørgensen

2017-05-25 21:50
Yeah and they will sign better contracts now. They got better offers than tricked and chose not to renew the contracts with tricked because tricked couldnt offer that much. Or atleast thats what I understood from this. So, its only the beginning.
2017-05-25 14:29
That's about what I got out of it too. Plot twist, Astralis Academy.

Just remember. Tricked has the support of a famous really rich former bank owner. The money are there. But agree. Money is always the issue
2017-05-25 17:24
Even if the money is there, it doesnt mean he wants to use it. Maybe someone else was overpricing the lineup, or maybe Tricked just wants to stay with lower teams.

No, If the players want like 5k per month and they're awful why would tricked pay that for a bot and 4 half decent players?
2017-05-25 14:05
yeah i mean Ticked didn't want do play what the players want so its basically this

No, you're saying tricked CANNOT pay the player wages, When they probably can but do not want to pay lets say 5k for a team that wont/cant win much,
2017-05-25 14:24
Someone else was still willing to do that. Tricked has had these tier 4-5 teams for ages now, seems like not a wealthy org.

2017-05-25 14:40
Yes, other orgs are willing to pay more than tricked
2017-05-25 14:33
as same as why North paying 20k per month for the team which a bit more better than tricked))

Tricked (esports org) North (football team) im sure they can waste money, 20k per month is pennies for a football team.

Even a football club will never get a branch they will never profit. I mean you need to distinguish North from to FC Copenhag. Yes this is pennies for a football team but team North have to be self-contanied and profit. Otherwise, FC Copenhag does'nt care how they can profit from esports, just helping to development of esports in their country
2017-05-25 19:00
they do a lot money on north label stuff and also marking, advertasiments, sponsors. This is 2017, almost nobody doing esport orgs without profits. But yeah for sure its so fokin overpay for these shitters. They not even not worth 10k/month.

Could be Fnatic Ac, but I don't think it's them cus phy for sure won't pay a dime for a new team. So probably Singularity since they are better than tricked right now and looking for a new home, because their contracts are to expire within a few weeks.

They won't achieve anything with hunden, sadly. Seriously, his fragging power is so low. He's really under the average. He could be a decent coach, but as an igl he has to frag something
