July 27th, 2017 23:00

Peter "ptr" Gurney has stepped down from NRG Esports' active roster, the player has announced on Social Media.

The 27-year-old, who has been part of NRG since January 2016, has not disclosed the reason behind this move, simply writing that he has "decided to part ways with the team".

ptr has left NRG after representing the team's colours for almost two years

Even after the signing of Allan "AnJ" Jensen, NRG have been struggling for form, with the team placing 7th-8th at the DreamHack Open stops in both Valencia and Atlanta. 

With Peter "ptr" Gurney's future remaining uncertain and NRG's fifth player yet to be revealed, here is how the North American roster currently looks:

Canada Damian "daps" Steele
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina
United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte
Denmark Allan "AnJ" Jensen

Have they specifically said so or do you just not think he's good enough? I personally don't think he's good enough. MLG XGames was his peak.
2017-07-27 23:25
PTR shit talked dazed saying he is glad he was banned before, soo.....
2017-07-28 07:20
Shit I hope not bcs if he joins ... This team wont have any succes

why when some one get kicked he say "i decided to part way"
2017-07-27 23:04
Because he decided to? Nrg was and is a shitteam. Ptr just has too much faoth in them. If he finds a team with a igl on gob b level he can def. Be a good awper
2017-07-27 23:08
I think of it as the difference between quitting and getting fired. It's mostly a connotation thing imo
2017-07-27 23:27

Ptr is without a doubt one of the best, if not the best, NA player ever. Sad to see him go. I hope he embraces his inner Brazilian and joins SK some day.
2017-07-27 23:14
^Made me laugh more than it should have.

It's a shame that he was either really fucking good, or really fucking shit. More often than not, it was the latter. Might get along better depending on what team picks him up (IF a team picks him up).
2017-07-27 23:16
Too bad Rogue signed CeRq before PTR announced free agency, he is the best North American awper on the market at the moment. I feel like he could do well with some young guns and GODHiko xD

Did AZK confirmed he will play CS:GO? Because he is currently overwatch pro, so I'm not sure he is going to switch and start all over again in cs.
2017-07-28 11:45
I dont think he has confirmed it himself but dazed and swag has basically confirmed that he is coming back to play with them.

Petes the kind of player that's AMAZING online but he never, ever SHOWS UP on LAN. The only surprising thing here is how did even stay for that long with his abysmal LAN track record. Disastrous.
2017-07-28 02:27

Its good that he stepped down. He'd never be kicked from the lineup because of how well he plays online, but when it comes to LAN hes the teams worst player by far.
