Sprout release sycrone

Sprout have dispensed with the services of in-game leader Dennis "sycrone" Nielsen, the German organisation have announced.

The 22-year-old had been on Sprout's books since May, when he took the team's reins following the departure of Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend, who is currently representing Ghost at DreamHack Masters Stockholm.

During his time on the roster, sycrone most notably led the team to a fourth-place finish at the Europe Minor, in London. His last appearance under Sprout came at the ESL Meisterschaft Summer 2018 Finals, where the team won the title over EURONICS with Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez acting as a stand-in.

sycrone is no longer part of Sprout's roster

In a statement, Sprout did not disclose the reasons for the move, merely thanking sycrone for his services to the organisation over his three-month tenure.

"With your endurance and drive we were able to keep pushing ourselves and our strategies and we are very grateful," Sprout said.

"We shared good times together and were able to almost reach the FACEIT Major in London - and even though we fell short, it is a huge achievement in itself.

"Sprout is going to keep growing. We want to transform and reach the next stage of our evolution. Even though we are going different paths from now on, we wish you all the best and are looking forward to your future in CS:GO."

Sprout, who are due to attend the Games Clash Masters, in Poland, at the end of September, currently have the following four-man roster:

Germany Timo "Spiidi" Richter
Germany Denis "denis" Howell
Denmark Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen
Denmark Martin "PERCY" Wessel

Why? He's a great igl who had a huge part in Sprout's recent form. Maybe he got bought out? Sad news, I quite liked that Sprout roster.
