Following the recent Chinese controversy surrounding the team, Fierce Tiger have decided to disband their CS:GO roster.
Fierce Tiger got themselves involved in more drama regarding the Asia Minor's Chinese open qualifier, which saw VG.Flash forced to forfeit the grand final due to unforeseen internet issues. Soon, FACEIT decided to overturn their decision and have the match replayed.
However, Fierce Tiger refused to play the match as their players were already away on vacation following the initial result. In an investigation led by FACEIT, they were able to uncover a connection with the mysterious fifth player "tbgirl" and a VAC banned account, resulting in the team's second tournament disqualification in May. Four days ago, VG.Flash successfully qualified for the Asia Minor, over their replacement ROAR.
Today, the Chinese organization posted the following statement on Weibo, regarding the future of the team:
"A while ago, Kun "LEo" Hou from Fierce Tiger was VAC banned by Valve after a tournament, which sparked great attention from around the world.
"Fierce Tiger immediately contacted Valve, FACEIT and Perfect World and provided relevant evidence on the matter, but it was denied.
"In respect to Valve and VAC, as well as taking responsibility for the other four players that was dragged into this issue innocently, we hereby announce that we will disband our CS:GO team.
"They are free to join any team and continue with their professional career with immediate effect.
"Fierce Tiger hopes the four players that were innocently dragged into this incident can succeed in the future and we also hope Chinese CS:GO can improve as well." (translated by Tan Kai Hong)
