NeiL_M steps down from Imperial

Neil "NeiL_M" Murphy has ended his stint at Imperial, an organization he won two titles with, and will be looking for new opportunities.

In October, Imperial came back from StarSeries i-League Season 6 with a disappointing 9-11th place under their belt. Soon after that, two of the Lithuanian players on the roster, Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas and Eimantas "pounh" Lazickas, were released.

Neil_M is open to new challenges

Nemanja "nexa" Isaković and Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas then joined Valiance, bringing Otto "ottoNd" Sihvo, who had been trying out for Imperial after the Lithuanians left, into the team with them.

Finally, Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss was released from his contract and Markus "pronax" Wallsten, who had been standing in for the team, was never signed.

Although Imperial's CEO Oli Adams stated that they "will be looking to re-enter CS:GO in the near future," it will not be under the team's former manager, NeiL_M, as he has stepped down and will be looking for other coaching or managing opportunities.

rip imperial for good
2018-11-19 16:40
Depends. I mean, they wont pick up a T1-2 team. But they could pick up some random T3 team. I think a UK team with the guy from Greece, Tsack.
2018-11-19 16:44
how long do you think they could really keep that lineup? All their past lineups don't last very long, they finally had one with potential and it got out of hand for them.
2018-11-19 16:56
Well, they could probably keep them for a long time, atleast a year. I mean, what other options does Imperial really have? They are not a super rich org. And yeah i know, the latest team they had was pretty decent.
2018-11-19 17:01
because they are not a super rich org is why i personally think they might as well pull out of csgo. i would hate to see them go but i also feel like they don't fit in anywhere
2018-11-19 22:37
They can pick ex-SS or Fragsters, i don't think they're going UK.
2018-11-19 18:54
Ex-SS will sign with Besiktas or something like that, just wait and see. Fragsters currently got a team (that i am also cheering on) and they got contracts for a few months more.
2018-11-19 19:11
"in the near future" =/= 3 days Also Fragsters' contracts expire on January 1, so no, they haven't got contracts "for a few months more".
2018-11-19 19:41
They still got a contract. Also Fragsters isnt a million dollar team that you seem to think. Their biggest sponsor is Steelseries. And they won around 93.000$, which isnt much compared with other teams. TL:DR I dont know if Fragsters can afford Ex-SS. Also, i think Ex-SS players still got a "long" contract, just that they refuse to play for SS and therefore play with Ex-SS.
2018-11-19 19:45
Oh boy, where do I even start... 1) SteelSeries is no longer a sponsor of Fragsters. Samsung is their biggest sponsor yet. 2) I said that Imperial could choose who to pick-up from the rosters of ex-SS and Fragsters. 3) The future of the Fragsters is pretty clear, so you shouldn't look at prize money won. 4) I never said that Fragsters is rich nor I even thought that they were. 5) Yes, they've still got a contract, but when they expire they've got no buyout clause and Imperial can sign them easily. 6) You wrote a TL:DR for 4 sentences??? 7) Do not rely on liquipedia for everything.
2018-11-19 20:11
Ok, didnt know that since i have not heard anything about that. Ofc they COULD, but i see that as a small chance. Well, i know that they are leaving Fragsters, but idk what org yet tho. I didnt rely on Liquipedia for that.
2018-11-19 20:21
Yeah totally, not like you didn't check Liquipedia for the prize money won or the sponsors, noooooooooooooooooo. Quit liying. Or get good at it.
2018-11-19 20:22
Huh? You know other websites exist right? No i didnt check on Liquipedia, i checked on esportsearnings, lol.
2018-11-19 20:24
And the sponsors? Or just Internet Explorer? axaxaxaxaxa
2018-11-19 20:25
Are you braindead or can you not read? I answered you at #85: "Ok, didnt know that since i have not heard anything about that. " So what the fuck are you on about?
2018-11-19 20:29
How small do these comment boxes go? What happens when they're so small less than a word fits on a line? This is some piss poor coding.
2018-11-20 22:55
They go really small, and then they go more to the right lol, it can continue of screen rofl.
2018-11-20 23:02
I just got active the other week after some years away. I have never seen this before. Incredible. Thanks for letting me know!
2018-11-20 23:11
lol ^^ Welcome back.
2018-11-20 23:19
nope kakafu and legija is enough!
2018-11-19 16:30
Kakafu is a analyst tho. Not a coach. Neil_M is a coach like Legija.
2018-11-19 16:32
Y 2 coaches?
2018-11-19 16:48
Why not?
2018-11-19 16:55
your logic = ???????????????????
2018-11-19 17:08
Oh wow, MIBR_IS_OVERRATED is back with his 45th account. Why dont you just give up? Logic? A team can have 2 coaches lol. Legija isnt really a coach either, hes basically a retired player. Put Legija in a team and then put, as an example, RobbaN in a team. Who do you think will play better? Obviously Legija.
2018-11-19 17:12
What team has 2 coaches? Show me one
2018-11-19 17:16
Well, basically all OW teams does. Dallas Fuel got 4 assistant coaches and 1 main coach.
2018-11-19 17:19
how about CS teams now?
2018-11-19 17:21
Ok. Teams in another game got 4 assistant + 1 main coach. Why cant a CS team have a main coach and one assistant?
2018-11-19 17:24
because there is no need?
2018-11-19 17:28
There is. Not only for a team like BIG, but for multiple teams.
2018-11-19 17:29
If this was the case there would be teams with multiple coaches

Will never happen anyway because Gob b and legija are like shox and smithzz, if they can’t play together be sure that legija will be the coach.

exactly, don't need another coach
2018-11-20 17:08
Well. They might not need another coach, but it could help the main coach out alot. Why do you think, as an example, football teams often got 1 main coach and 1-2 assistant coaches?

"LOYAL" btw as coach he's useless, even nukkye said that he brings LITERALLY NOTHING to the team. Shouting cat & bed every fucking day doesn't make you a good coach. He does not create any strats for the team either. Nobody will pick him up, hopefully

2018-11-19 22:28
Your only relevant players are espiranto and nukkye both of them are on a team that changes rosters every week and shows clear toxicity. They make 100% of ur scene which justifies my use of "everyone" Smooya is one player in the incredible UK scene. We have dephh,alex,steel,frei,surreal who are all not toxic. 1/6 of our players are toxic whilst 1/1 of ur players are toxic /close

"1/6 are toxic" Rofl mate are u drunk or something ? Evryone knows uk as toxic cs scene. If we are talking about uk cs players then 8/10 uk people are toxic if about pros then it is another thing. Smooya is perfect example. And he is basically ur only player Alex not relevent enough Deph yes he made to the major, so did kvik Frei ? Who ? Surreal ? Really ? Steel ? Wtf If ur logic is based on that shit then pounh, kalinka, kvik are relevent too, and considering ur country has ~23x our population. U know ur scene is bad.
2018-11-20 14:27
ldlc is 12th in the world and u are saying they arent relevant. kvik is on winstrike, 64th in world surreal,frei are above that on epsilonw hich is a good team. Steel has british citizenship.

thats interesting, i remember his interviews in the showmatch, he seemed really fake and he like "forced positivity"
2018-11-19 16:52
He was playing with AaroN, puls3 and some other dude, and Aaron was so nice and positive, but Neil was flaming those of us that weren't his premades, even though we eventually won. Needless to say he was quite shit (hence why he's a manager) and Aaron ended up apolagizing for his behaviour. Waste of oxygen if you ask me.
