iGame.com release three players
iGame.com announced its new roster in May after several of its former players saw their way to other teams in what ended up being a Finnish roster shuffle that hurt iGame.com's standing in the Finnish scene.
After losing Sami "xseveN" Laasanen to ENCE and Eetu "sAw" Saha and Olli "sLowi" Pitkänen to HAVU, iGame.com ended up with former HAVU players Jesse "KHRN" Grandell and Mikko "xartE" Välimaa joining the team's former coach turned player, Twista, as well as SAGGERTON and Timo "REFLEX" Rintala, but the new team never managed to find its groove.
The team, full of experience but lacking in firepower, was unable to land good results, finishing 3rd at NESA 2018 behind HAVU and SJ, 25th in MDL, landing the team in the relegation playoff come September, and 9-16th at the CPH Games BYOC tournament.
"We are sad to announce the disbanding of our CSGO team, within few months we played together we realized our visions were different about the future also chemistry of the team was not what we were looking for. With this announcement, we will be releasing Mikko "xartE" Välimaa, Jesse "KHRN" Grandell & Timo "REFLEX" Rintala from our roster. Future of Saku "SAGGERTON" Jokinen and Slaava "Twista" Räsänen in the team is yet unknown.
"We are reviewing our options to sign a new team in near future so stay tuned with us.
With the three players released, iGame.com currently has:
