Planetkey announce disbandment

The players representing Planetkey will go their separate ways after their contract with the German organization runs out next month, the team recently announced.

After an eight-month run, the team lead by team captain Alexander "⁠alexRr⁠" Frisch will dissolve, with the five players going their own ways and seeking new opportunities.

Planetkey have finished 3-4th in the last two seasons of the German ESL league, the ESL Meisterschaft, and have made it into ESEA Premier S25, but haven't been able to leave a mark in the international league, finishing the season in the relegation zone.

oddo and co. will be looking for new teams soon

After a lack of breakthrough international results, the team's tenure will come to an end, with the likes of Robin "⁠r0bs3n⁠" Stephan, Marko "⁠kressy⁠" Đorđević and Timo "⁠pulzG⁠" Walter breaking up the team to search for new challenges as individuals.

This is what Stefan Offermanns, Planetkey's Project Manager had to say about the decision:

"It is sad, I can't add more to it. Once more a team based on alexRr showed the world what Planetkey can do. Some time ago we won the ESL Pro Series (now ESL Meisterschaft), competed at a Major and in Pro League. We want to thank alexRr, kressy, r0bs3n, who we've known for a long time, pulzG and oddo for all the time we were together. The team nevertheless came to the decision to split up and not wanting to continue to play together."

"We are also open for new opportunities for the upcoming season. We are going to stay in close contact with the players from this team. I want to thank the team and all people in the background for the past 8 months, especially Martin "Drake" Schulz for his great work in the management!"

kressy, who was the team's standout player in recent months, told HLTV.org that he is open to continuing his career in an international team in Europe or overseas:

"After eight months with this team, we decided to split up. We had internal issues, which we could not solve, sadly. We worked on them for several weeks, but it didn't help. We had a lot of good moments, which I will never forget. I wish all of my teammates a bright future and hope I will see them soon again."

"But what about me? I don't really know to be honest. I have no real plans, that's why I am open for every offer I get. I would be ready to play fulltime in EU as well as in NA. So if there are any interested people, you can contact me via twitter or at kressycsgo@gmx.de"

The following Planetkey players will be free agents as of next month:

Germany Alexander "⁠alexRr⁠" Frisch
Germany Marko "⁠kressy⁠" Đorđević
Germany Timo "⁠pulzG⁠" Walter
Germany Robin "⁠r0bs3n⁠" Stephan
Germany Franz "⁠oddo⁠" Geiger

both had german lineups as well only penta made something where you cann call it was big for german cs ... and BIG reached this after just 6 months so yeah i think they make german cs even bigger and if you would have a watch (i dont expect cause ur not from germany) there are so many new teams playing in our homecountry league 99damage liga it's are over 1k teams ...

At first i was just kidding but yeah i got u I agree, BUG made a great performance on the last months, and even tho they used that jump-bug, i guess they played really gud Tbh with u, i've not seen too much CS lately but o believe that they'r all playing to raise just like here in Portugal, but the difference os that here, in Portugal, it seems like ppl doesnt even care about CS and i truly believe that u, in Germany, have more opportunities to play outside ur country than us

yeah ... i would really like a good portuguese scene but if you watch from outside it doesn't really seem like there is sth ... okay you heared about k1ck and everyone knows fox ... but thats it (you can say something if there is more than i see...) but i don't know maybe you need a team like we have with BIG ... so people get attention for cs and want to play it ... searching his friends and just start to play i mean you can join ESL leagues and so on freely ... but also there could be some tournaments in portugal ... u've got great cities with lissabon and porto for example...

The problem here, is not about how good they are, as i said, they play alot of national tournaments, but CS is sth new in Portugal, it looks like ppl are still trying to know what it is Idk if it is a org's problem or what, but they have no opportunities to play outside and gain some experience/respect just like BIG

VP will have to play in ESEA Premier next season if ESL doesn't invent a new opportunity to invite VP. VP could sit out the current ESEA season as there are three ESEA seasons per year and only two EPL seasons.
