koosta leaves Ghost

Kenneth "koosta" Suen has parted ways with Ghost, the player has announced on social media.

The 23-year-old leaves Ghost following the expiry of his contract, ending a year-long tenure with the North American organisation.

Ghost has not yet made an official statement regarding koosta or whether more departures will follow, with team captain Joshua "steel" Nissan and coach James "JamezIRL" Macaulay having joined the team at the same time as the former Liquid player.

koosta is no longer tied to Ghost

During his time on Ghost's books, the AWPer won the ZOTAC Cup Masters Americas event, and attended three Big Events, ESL One Belo Horizonte, DreamHack Masters Stockholm and the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals.

With koosta's departure, Ghost are now down to:

Canada Joshua "steel" Nissan
United States Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir
Canada Matthew "WARDELL" Yu
United States Jason "neptune" Tran

United States James "JamezIRL" Macaulay (coach)

C9 doesn't need a terrible awper that has literally done nothing with Ghost. Rush and vice are leaps ahead of koosta, even in FPL.

He was, but he's been rifling in Ghost. He's second to Wardell for the awp.

There must be some sort of inner-team dissatisfaction. He seemed a decent fit for a decent team. Maybe it even had something to do with terms of a renewal of contract that he didn't like? Hopefully, he lands on a decent team that could use him. Lazurus?

2019-06-12 16:07
Hmm. Good idea, really. If Envy could fit both Koosta and Daps on it, they could keep Nifty and they'd be well on their way to a team that could complete with Complexity and [currently], Cloud9.

Honestly, Koosta should join Compelxity and replace Rickeh They both are the hybrid/secondary awpers, and Koosta is definitely more solid than Rickeh age and skill wise

he was pretty good, wonder what they will get instead of him

2019-06-12 17:04
walldell v 5, thats how
2019-06-12 20:27
I can hope he moves to main AWP. Either for C9 or CoL. Even so, Wardell left for rouge for a week, realized it wasn't for him and came back. Looking at who's on the market, Tenz makes sense. JDM isn't a fix, more like a patch. Wardell could rifle but better with AWP. C9- optic was bought and could drop can roster. Possible rehash of North '17 with Konfig, MSL, and new Niko. Replace cajin Col- replace rickeh. Depth is gonna need help and a youth push. Eunited- Cooper could join freak. Together they can crush some really good teams
2019-06-12 17:04
I think c9 will wait until this upcoming tournament is over to determine who they needs replaced. If it's daps, gonna be G0lden and if it's vice or rush, gonna be koosta.
