Singularity release team; players part ways

Singularity have announced that they have parted ways with their CS:GO team with immediate effect.

In a statement posted on their official website, the Scandinavian organisation explained that they are currently undergoing a restructuring and that they "have not been able to find a sustainable source of funding" to support CS:GO professional or even semi-professional operations at this point.

With this decision, Singularity pull the plug on a 10-month association with the team, whom they signed from Gatekeepers in August 2017.

Singularity's team is no more as players will go their separate ways

While competing under Singularity, the team most notably competed at the ROG MASTERS 2017 EMEA Finals, losing to Gambit in the quarter-finals, and reached the last-four stage at Nordish Gaming Convention Masters 2017.

The news also led to the disbandment of the team as the players came to the conclusion that going their separate ways and trying their luck in other teams "would be the best decision."

"We put in a lot of work and we were close to making it one step further on many occasions but sadly never made it," a team statement reads.

"The last 6 months have been fun and a good learning experience for all of us. We thank Singularity for their trust and support in us during the good/bad times and the player swaps."

The following players are now free to join other teams:

Sweden André "BARBARR" Möller
Sweden Benjamin "BENDJI" Söderena
Sweden Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson
Sweden Hugo "HugoXD" Hallgren
Sweden Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora

It will happen, i am not the one that said so, it was someone on twitter, like the "Flickshot" guys, but not Flickshot. And yeah, he could. Its time to retire for GTR, or step down to a team like Red Reserve. hltv.org/team/7613/red-reserve -Freddieb (since Hampus is IGL right now) +GTR GTR could easily help Red Reserve in T3-T2 scene and maybe even come to major quals etc.

But before joining Singularity BARBARR said that ''this will be his last team''. So I'm quite sceptical about this move.

Trust me, if NIP comes with a nice ass contract with good salary he will sign it. I mean, compare NIP salary with Singularity/Epsilon salary.

"28 years old" Ehm.. ok?

Also, its not about ratings and shit like all of you think, I think that BARBARR could come in with some new ideas, maybe give the team better chemistry, who knows.
2018-07-06 03:32

Ehm. AdreN and Dosia won a major a year ago. MODDII, Fallen, TaZ, Oskar, Neo, Pasha etc are old 1.6 veterans. Sure, they might be old but 90% of these players perform really well in their teams.
2018-07-06 04:19
From the list only ChrisJ, Fallen and Oskar are relevant. The others are pretty shit. Winning a Major 1 year ago doesn't make them good right now lol. That was a one hit wonder. They're meh.

In all fairness, they just do not have enough money. So it’s not giving up, it’s economy. A food chain isn’t dying either just because it has to shut down 50 out of maybe 425 places, pure economics.
