Spacestation squad to hold AZIO ECS spot

Spacestation will get to keep the ECS spot that the players won while playing under AZIO, FACEIT Director of Esports Roald van Buuren has announced.

In a Twitter post, the FACEIT official explained that the team were not under a contract with AZIO at the time they qualified for ECS, meaning that the league spot was tied to the players and not to the organisation.

FACEIT's decision was made public at the same time as Spacestation formally unveiled the team, who secured entry into ECS following a forfeit win over MIBR and a 2-0 victory over Gorilla Gang in the Challenger Cup.

Grim & co have signed for Spacestation

Tension had been building around the team after AZIO had allegedly shut off the internet connection at the team house upon learning that the players had signed contracts with another organisation. In a statement, AZIO confirmed that the team were not contracted to the organisation during the ECS Challenger Cup and lamented that the players stalled negotiations over a deal that would finally include salaries.

The North American team currently sit in seventh place in ECS, with a 1-5 record. They will make their first official appearance for Spacestation in just a few hours, against eUnited.

Spacestation's roster is the following:

United States Trevor "FrostayK" Bandle
United States Gage "Infinite" Green
United States Michael "Grim" Wince
United States Ryan "Snakes" Amann
United States Logan "Voltage" Long

United States Teric "Bibby" Ingram (coach)

SpaceStation may be 1-5, but they've looked pretty good all things considered. Punching way above their weight so far.

"Tension had been building around the team after AZIO had allegedly shut off the internet connection at the team house upon learning that the players had signed contracts with another organisation." Lost all the respect i never had for AZIO lul
2018-10-10 22:58
I mean they were providing a team house and internet to a team that wasn't even signed to them. As soon as they learnt the squad were signing with someone else, why would they keep supporting them?

no contract, no salary. you'd be stupid to not do the same. AZIO were delaying salary negotiations, so they just signed with another team lol. AZIO probably thought they were bluffing, the team called it AZIO think they can pull this bullshit because they live in their house. They're actually retarded for thinking players will stay loyal without a contract or a salary. Especially in such a short career field as professional esports. Get your money while you still can
