Grayhound remove BURNRUOk; chuch departs Tainted Minds
Two of Australia's top teams have undergone changes today with the removal of Callum "BURNRUOk" Henderson and Connor "chuch" Morgan from Grayhound and Tainted Minds' active lineups respectively.
Following the conclusion of the ESL Pro League Season 7 Oceania Closed Qualifier yesterday, the infamous roster shuffle has unexpectedly taken place in the region down under.
Despite both teams qualifying for the Asia-Pacific event in Sydney, held later this month on April 20-22, along with IEM Sydney 2018 Oceania closed qualifier coming up, it is an odd timing for Grayhound and Tainted Minds to remove their longest serving members Callum "BURNRUOk" Henderson and Connor "chuch" Morgan respectively, during the region's busiest moments.
"Today we announce the removal of Callum "bURNRUOk" Henderson from our roster.
It has been an exceptionally long and distinguished storyline which truly speaks for itself - from Team Immunity with erkaSt and Gratisfaction all the way through the years to Grayhound with Dickstacy and dexter.
There have only ever been great times in this team and stories which will forever be locked in the "what happens in Hainan, stays in Hainan" vault.
Best of luck to you Cal, we know we'll be seeing you in the future!"
"Today we part ways with Connor "chuch" Morgan from the Tainted CS:GO playing lineup. Chuch was part of the initial Tainted CS:GO team that we acquired from Athletico in December 2016 and has played in nearly every single official match since that day.
Playing in a multitude of different roles but primarily as an entry, chuch provided a great level of versatility to the team and was part of the teams rise to top 3 throughout 2017-2018.
Due to outside of game commitments, chuch has stepped down from the roster and will be having some time off to enjoy life and achieve goals outside of Counter-Strike.
Thank you for your time with us Connor, you have been an awesome team member and above all a great mate to us all here at Tainted Minds."
Grayhound's lineup is now down to four members:
Tainted Minds' roster currently consists of:
Fergus "ferg" Stephenson (coach)
