Space Soldiers players part ways with organization
In their statement, the players expressed that their long term plans didn't match with those of the organization which prompted them to go their seperate ways.
HLTV.org has learned that the players haven't started any negotiations yet and will be called ex-Space Soldiers until they find their new home.
Space Soldiers has been the home of XANTARES since the end of 2014. Engin "ngiN" Kor and Ahmet "paz" Karahoca joined the side at the start of 2016 while the duo of Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli & Buğra "Calyx" Arkın joined in at the start of last year.
Most recently, they attended the FACEIT Major New Challengers Stage where they had to play with Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran as ngiN was unable make it to London, and BLAST Pro Series Istanbul where they finished in fourth place. They are also competing in ESL Pro League Season 8 Europe where they have a 5-3 record.
The statement released by the players can be found below:
