PERCY and NaToSaphiX part ways with Sprout

The Danish duo Martin "PERCY" Wessel and Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen are no longer a part of Sprout, the German organization revealed.

NaToSaphiX joined the team as the main AWPer while it still featured Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend and Paweł "innocent" Mocek, back in February, and was joined by PERCY in June when the team became majorly-Danish. The roster peaked at the European Minor in July where they finished fourth, unable to reach that level in the second part of the year.

NaToSaphiX and PERCY are out of Sprout

Following reports that PERCY is set on a move back to Denmark, Sprout revealed that they are parting ways with both him and the 22-year-old AWPer.

"My first professional team, 10 months and a great time. I will never forget the CPH Games, our first LAN together, the minor qualifier we never should’ve made it through and the upsets we made happen in London.

"I will gather my thoughts and post a statement later about my future" - NaToSaphiX on Twitter

A report by Rush B Media linked Florian "syrsoN" Rische and Sabit "mirbit" Coktasar with a move to the team, which would see them move back to a fully German roster. However, as of now, Sprout are down to three players:

Germany Denis "denis" Howell
Germany Timo "Spiidi" Richter
Germany Josef "faveN" Baumann

Germany Tobias "tow b" Herberhold (coach)

It seems like BRCSLUL, aka MIBR IS OVERRATED, aka MIBR NEVER WON AGAINST BIG, aka MIBR NEVER WON AGAINST ENCE is always one step ahead of the poor Unluko in terms of be the #1. Unluko nick checks out, by the way.

Any chance of nato joining optic, heroic or even north? I'd like to see him in a better team, but it would be a risky pick for FaZe
