ngiN steps down from ex-Space Soldiers

Engin "ngiN" Kor has stepped down from ex-Space Soldiers' active lineup, the Turkish player has announced on Twitter.

The 25-year-old's decision comes in the aftermath of the Europe Minor, where ex-Space Soldiers went out in last place after losing to ENCE and North. The Turkish side attended the event with Yaman "yam" Ergenekon as Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş left the squad in December to join BIG.

ngiN became the most senior player in the team after XANTARES' departure, having joined the side at the start of 2016. During his tenure with ex-Space Soldiers, ngiN won DreamHack Open Austin and ELEAGUE Major's Europe Minor in 2018 as the Turkish team qualified for a Major for the first time.

ngiN has parted ways with ex-SS

HLTV.org has learned that yam will stay with ex-Space Soldiers after his solid display at the Europe Minor, leaving the team with four players and a coach.

The current ex-Space Soldiers roster can be is below:

Turkey Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli
Turkey Ahmet "paz" Karahoca
Turkey Buğra "Calyx" Arkın
Australia Yaman "yam" Ergenekon

Turkey Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran - Coach

It's not what every other Turks told me tbh. In another org ofc, i think a project with MAJ3R, XANTARES, Calyx, woxic & paz would have attracted a lot of orgs who would have paid them alot than what woxic is getting carrying HR's ass.
