Budapest Five drop CS:GO team

Budapest Five have released their CS:GO roster effective immediately, the Hungarian organisation has announced.

Proudly announced as the first official esports brand in Hungary, Budapest Five entered CS:GO in the first half of January 2019 with a squad featuring some of the country's finest talent, with Viktor "⁠flashie⁠" Tamás Bea spearheading the quintet's effort.

In a Twitter Post, Budapest Five cited "organisation issues" as the reason to cut ties with the players, who were all tied down to year-long contracts with potential for extension.

flash and his squad will continue competing under the 1998 tag

Despite the setback, all members bar Olivér "⁠DEv⁠" Budai will continue competing as a unit going further and will play under the tag "1998" until they find a new organisation to represent.

"Through four months of practice we slowly realised that we needed new energy into the team since DEv didn't improve the way we expected him to do so," flashie told HLTV.org.

"It is probably because he couldn't quit his job, so not only did we have fewer opportunities for team practice but obviously it was impossible for him to find enough time to practice individually.

"We talked to the management to solve the issue and were told they would only support this team if we stuck to the original starting five. Basically, we needed to make a decision: play with DEv or lose the support of the organisation and every kind of sponsorship.

"We decided we take the latter route and continue with someone else. For us, it was not enough to just play for money when we believe we could have more potential and bigger chances to prove ourselves. It is tough to be in this spot, but we are really motivated to reach our goals and find a new home for us.

"We are looking for a new organisation to represent, anyone interested can contact us via e-mail beaviktor@gmail.com!"

1998 are participating in the country's biggest national league to date, the MNEB, in which they currently have a 4-4 record. The team still has a total of six official matches to play over the course of the coming month, the next one against Gamerzone.gg on Wednesday, February 27.

1998 currently consist of:

Hungary Viktor "⁠flashie⁠" Tamás Bea
Hungary Patrik "⁠bodito⁠" Boda
Hungary Renátó "⁠bzt⁠" Bárányos
Hungary Áron "⁠Aaron⁠" Homoki

Hungary Márk "⁠MustanG⁠" Havrán (coach)
