Runtime part ways with CS:GO roster

Runtime have parted ways with their CS:GO roster following the expiry of player contracts.

The announcement follows a period of inactivity from the team, who had signed with Runtime at the beginning of the year ahead of the CIS Minor leading to IEM Katowice.

Headlined by veteran trio Denis "seized" Kostin, Sergey "starix" Ischuk and Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov, the team traveled to the Minor with high expectations surrounding them but were one of the first to be eliminated following losses to Winstrike and pro100.

hooch and company no longer represent Runtime

Lackluster results persisted after the return from Katowice, as the team's showing in the first European open qualifier for IEM Sydney saw a round of 32 exit following a loss to MIXSQUAD.

According to Runtime, the team's contracts expired on March 15, leaving the following players free to commit to other organisations:

Russia Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov
Russia Denis "seized" Kostin
Ukraine Sergey "starix" Ischuk
Ukraine Alexander "scoobyxie" Marynych
Lithuania Nikolaj "kalinka" Rysakov

Where the fck is point to make articles about some tier 200 shit team with 2 offical matches in hltv.org (facepalm).
2019-03-19 22:43
Because it’s called counter strike news. Why do you turn your tv on and the local news shows a story about some dumb shit that has nothing to do with anything? At least this is about counter strike and if you don’t care about this article why comment on it? Hltv.org is a site Solely dedicated to counter strike plain and simple. Top teams can’t fill a news feed. People like you are either to dumb to realize what this site is about or are just a troll. Either or is bad. Show some gratitude to the site and the people behind the scenes giving us something to read and kill time at work with. Thx hltv!

Starix was playing really well before the cis minor. But yeah there's clearly not enough firepower when you have seized & hooch who is clearly not good enough for pro teams They probably just hoped for lucky run to make it to the major
