kRYSTAL and Sprout part ways

The departure of Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend from Sprout puts an end to a six month run in Sprout and makes the German player a free agent.

Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend's exit means Sprout is now down to only two original members, Denis "⁠denis⁠" Howell and Timo "⁠Spiidi⁠" Richter, who were also present at the PGL Major in Krakow. These news come two weeks after Paweł "⁠innocent⁠" Mocek's departure from the team was officialized, as the Pole left to go play with Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco & co. in Tempo Storm.

kRYSTAL's time in Sprout comes to an end

On his facebook page, kRYSTAL noted differences between him and his compatriots, which ended up being too much to handle. Now, the German duo and Niels Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen will have to scour the market for two players to join the squad.

Sprout is currently:

Germany Denis "⁠denis⁠" Howell
Germany Timo "⁠Spiidi⁠" Richter
Denmark Niels Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen

Germany Tobias "⁠tow b⁠" Herberhold (coach)

2018-05-16 18:31
mantuuu isn't german tho, and sprout already have got an awper so luckeRRR wouldn't be a good option some german options: ayken (but won't happen probably bcs i think he prefers to awp and currently he doesn't want to join a team) mirbit - plays for euronics, is pretty consistent, plays fpl, has big potential ecfn - back then in bluejays he was a beast, in attax he was okay, i think if you give him more freedom, he will become good again stfN - is basically a beast, has been very good back then in penta and plays now very good cs for attax, but it's pretty unlikely that he would join sprout, just because attax are at the moment better than sprout imo p4trick - plays for ex-divizon, is a great talent imo and has big potential so if there was a german player to pick, i would pick mirbit/stfn/ayken/P4trick/ecfn

But mantuu can speak German I guess? Yeah ecfN, aykeN, stfN are the ones that I was thinking about but didn't remember all of them (just knew that many nicks are ending with "N"). I didn't say they are the only players that can join Sprout (see "other from lower tier German teams". So i chose those less obvious and let Germans type rest, since it is their scene. But can we except another German team or more like Sprout will be international?
