PRIDE release ToM223 & Luz

The Polish organization have parted ways with Tomasz "⁠ToM223⁠" Richter and Maciek "⁠Luz⁠" Bugaj—the last players on their main roster.

PRIDE's main roster has been in turmoil ever since Piotr "⁠morelz⁠" Taterka was benched in February and Paweł "⁠reatz⁠" Jańczak and Jacek "⁠MINISE⁠" Jeziak left the team to join Kinguin back in March.

ToM223 and Luz remained with the team and were joined by various players from PRIDE Academy. Today the two aforementioned players were released as the organization allowed the players to take control of their future.

PRIDE don't have a main team anymore

At the moment, PRIDE doesn't have a main team and will carry on supporting PRIDE Academy. However, ToM223 and Luz will play in the ESEA MDL Season 28 Europe Relegation at the start of the September because of roster lock rules.

Here is the roster that will play in the ESEA MDL Season 28 Europe Relegation:

Poland Tomasz "⁠ToM223⁠" Richter
Poland Maciek "⁠Luz⁠" Bugaj
Poland Łukasz "⁠splawik⁠" Jahns
Poland Adrian "⁠Zorineq⁠" Kołodziejski
Poland Adrian "⁠SAYN⁠" Łączyński

Below is the lineup for PRIDE Academy:

Poland Łukasz "⁠splawik⁠" Jahns
Poland Adrian "⁠Zorineq⁠" Kołodziejski
Poland Adrian "⁠SAYN⁠" Łączyński

Where on earth is that racist? It rhymes...
2018-08-07 08:44
I see so many of you saying that his nickname is "racist". But what is racist in stating that someone is from africa? Miki = mikołaj (it's his name) so he's litteraly saying he's from africa (it's rhyming and it's not true probably tho), what is racist about that??
