stan1ey leaves Ghost; returns to Europe

Tramaine "stan1ey" Stanley has announced he will be leaving the United States to head back to the United Kingdom, leaving Ghost behind.

Tramaine "stan1ey" Stanley, who deemed his stay in North America as "questionable" and stated he will be taking a break from competitive CS to enjoy himself, is returning to the UK after a season playing Pro League with Ghost.

He also congratulated his team on holding on to the Pro League spot, which Ghost did in-extremis with Splyce and Complexity being the teams who will finally travel to the UK for the ESL Pro League Relegation.

stan1ey will take some time away from the servers

Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado has been put into the Ghost roster, although the change is not known to be final in a season in which Ghost already changed their former IGL, Connor "CONNOR93" Glover, for Andy "vSa" Xu.

With stan1ey's departure, Ghost's lineup is currently:

United States Sebastian "seb" Bucki
Canada Matthew "WARDELL" Yu
Canada Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik
Canada Andy "vSa" Xu

Mexico Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado (Stand-in)
United States Michael "MAiNLiNE" Jaber (Coach)
United Kingdom Tramaine "stan1ey" Stanley (Inactive)

I guess being at tier 1 tournies isn't relevant I forgot for you to be considered good at CS you have to win all the tournies.

I forgot that if you degrade from the top1 status to going out in groups is considered as relevant

I guess you dont know the difference between in form and relevant. SK is still relevant teams still prepare for them and respect them as a top team.

They ain’t improving with Stewie, I’m telling you that rn. If they get a 5th that’s brazilian, I would respect them, but this is called buying out "good players".

Sometimes buying out good players works I'm sure fallen is smart enough to figure out if this lineup has potential Edit: Also they didn't buy stewie c9 let him go when he asked

"Sometimes" Not all the time - in this case it doesn't seems like it Let's say you are fnatic and you replace golden with chrisJ - would it work? Definitely not

LOL switching IGLs is a MUCH bigger deal than entry fragger. Also they've barely had any prac time going from tourney to tourney, player break is coming up soon it's like you expect every new roster to just magically click.

It was a nationality/language comparison, didn't mean it as roles. So did FaZe or C9 have time? No, they aren't perfect, but they can beat t4 teams at least. SK is just a team full of excuses.

Maybe not fnx, but some other br talent. I also agree that boltz isn't good enough for SK.
