After parting ways with their old lineup in May, the Swedish organization Red Reserve has acquired the squad that, up till now, represented GODSENT.
Now, it has been revealed that Red Reserve, who let go their roster built around Joakim "Relaxa" Gustafsson and Fredrik "FREDDyFROG" Gustafsson last month, have acquired the whole GODSENT roster, including the team's coach Niko "naSu" Kovanen.
The recent ruleset update regarding teams with tied interest playing in the Major cycle has perhaps forced GODSENT's owners hand in this case, seeing them sell off the whole team to Red Reserve shortly before the start of the European Minor Closed Qualifiers.
GODSENT didn't comment on the decision, only clarifiying that "RFRSH Entertainment is no longer involved with the GODSENT brand and has no contractual obligations to the players."
"We’re very happy that we had the opportunity to work with the GODSENT owners and RFRSH to acquire this roster. The transfer process went very smoothly and now we’re able to have Red Reserve represented on a global-scale in Counter-Strike. Counter-Strike is still one of the world’s top esports and this roster has the ability to transform Red Reserve into a household name within the esports market." - Patrik Andersson, CEO of Red Reserve
"I am really happy teaming up with Red Reserve we as a team will continue doing our best to reach our goals for the future, Id like to thank GODSENT/RFRSH for the time being its been one hell of a learning experience for me being one of the "founders" in GODSENT. I'd like to also thank every GODSENT player I've played with from start to end, especially znajder and pronax with whom I have shared some of the best moments in my life with." - twist
