Red Reserve release freddieb; bench hampus

Red Reserve have announced that Fredrik "⁠freddieb⁠" Buö has been released from his contract and that Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser is no longer in the starting line-up.

In a short statement, Red Reserve offered no explanation for these changes, which come just days before the start of the new ESEA MDL season.

On Twitter, hampus explained that he decided to step down from the starting lineup following freddieb's departure, also citing "internal problems".

freddieb is now a free agent

The news means that Red Reserve no longer field any of the players that they signed from GODSENT only six months ago, after previously selling Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin and Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson to fnatic, and moving Joakim "⁠disco doplan⁠" Gidetun to the bench.

While playing under Red Reserve's banner, the duo attended just three LAN events, most notably the Europe Minor leading to the FACEIT Major, where the team finished in 5th-6th place after recording back-to-back losses to fellow Swedish side NIP.

The Swedish organisation did not mention their future plans, but stressed that they remain "dedicated to making it work and to becoming one of the community's elite teams."

He's playing really good, Dennis is playing worse than him, whats your point here? Gtr is extremely important for nip right now (game wise) (obviously merch wise too) If you try to say otherwise, you're simply blind or a hater.
