solo, glow leave MVP PK

MVP PK have parted ways with Keun-Chul "solo" Kang and Min-Soo "glow" Kim, the South Korean organisation have announced.

In a brief statement provided to HLTV.org, MVP PK explained that the veteran duo "agreed to end their contracts with the team and are now free agents."

Widely regarded as two of the most prominent figures in South Korean Counter-Strike, solo and glow had been in MVP PK's ranks since the organisation ventured into CS:GO, in mid-2016.

solo and glow step down from MVP PK

While with MVP PK, the duo helped the team to win the CS:GO Asia Summit and eXTREMESLAND ZOWIE Asia 2018, and to reach a handful of Big Events in 2018, most notably the IEM stops in Sydney and Chicago, and the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals.

Their last appearance for the famed South Korean organisation came at the Asia Minor at the beginning of the year, where the team came in fourth place after losing to Grayhound and ViCi in the double-elimination playoffs.

With these departures, MVP PK's roster now looks as follows:

Korea Min-Seok "zeff" Park
Korea Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee
Korea Seon-Ho "xeta" Son

Korea Seon-Ho "termi" Pyeon (coach)

Well, the peak/optimal performance (combination of speed, skill, psychical stability and experience) for a jet fighter pilot based on NASA’s research is 40 to 45 years. I know it’s not the same as playing cs, but I would say that pilots of supersonic planes have even more demanding task at hand.

I actually really liked MVP PK and what they had accomplished in recent years in a scene that's still growing. They were (and hopefully still will be) an important team in the Asian scene...
