Epsilon drop team

Epsilon have released their CS:GO team around Kia "⁠Surreal⁠" Man, the organization has announced.

According to a Tweet from Teodor "⁠SPELLAN⁠" Nikolov, the team will continue playing together and are seeking a new organization to represent.

The Belgian organization had featured the core of their latest lineup since February, when SPELLAN, Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants, and Nils "⁠k1to⁠" Gruhne completed the roster following a second overhaul of the team around Surreal and Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel.

Surreal & co. are no longer part of Epsilon

That lineup managed to reach the playoffs at Charleroi Esports after beating G2 and GamerLegion, but a month later, they lost the German player to Sprout, with Rasmus "⁠kreaz⁠" Johansson taking his place.

Outside of a win in KING OF BETSCSGO.GG, Epsilon faced mixed results after k1to's departure, most notably failing to make it past the Europe Minor open qualifiers following multiple close attempts, which has seen them drop from 22nd to 40th place.

Epsilon had:

United Kingdom Kia "⁠Surreal⁠" Man
Netherlands Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel
Bulgaria Teodor "⁠SPELLAN⁠" Nikolov
Latvia Helvijs "⁠broky⁠" Saukants
Sweden Rasmus "⁠kreaz⁠" Johansson

2019-07-25 00:30
This is how the org works. Pick up team with random players who have potential, sell one or two for profit to bigger teams, drop team, repeat process a few months later.
2019-07-25 01:43
oh... but they where nearly top 30
2019-07-25 02:00
Yeah, I hope the players stick together. It's just that the org for a long time doesn't seem willing to pay salary demands or longer term contracts from players as the team gets higher in rankings and they historically just like to cycle through "profit players".
