SCARZ Absolute players leave organisation

The Japanese organisation SCARZ revealed that they parted ways with their CS:GO squad.

According to Tomoaki "crow" Maruoka's Twitter post, his team is looking for "organisations or sponsorship companies" interested in acquiring the services of the ex-SCARZ Absolute lineup, as they intend to keep pursuing their goals "as an Asia Champion".

The Japanese players had been a part of the club since February 2017, when the organisation signed a deal with the team formerly known as Absolute.

Laz and co. are no longer part of SCARZ

Between October and November, the team failed to impress at competitions such as the eXTREMESLAND Asia Finals and the IESF World Championship, but the Japanese squad raised eyebrows for the first time in July, when they reached the lower bracket final of the FACEIT Major Asia Minor, eventually losing 2-1 to Renegades.

On November 15, the former SCARZ Absolute team will duke it out in the East Asia Closed Qualifier for a spot at the IEM Katowice Asia Minor, which will be held in late January.

Below you can find the roster that is currently looking for an organisation to represent:

Japan Koji "Laz" Ushida
Japan Ryu "Reita" Oshiro
Japan Tomoaki "crow" Maruoka
Japan Ryo "barce" Takebayashi
Japan Takemori "takej" Shogo

It sucks that the scene for a lot of big games isn't big at all in Japan when there are many players looking to pursue careers in this area over there. Hopefully they find an org willing to take them on.

Irrespective of what anyone says, Laz is a pretty good player. I saw him at the major quals and he was unexpectedly good. Hope for the best for "Laz & co."
