SMASH part ways with CS:GO team

Two months after announcing the signing of their squad, SMASH and their roster have parted ways.

The organization didn't disclose the reasons for the cooperation coming to an end, but hinted at Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk and co. going to a new home shortly. In the announcement, SMASH also stated they have an "awesome fresh line-up waiting" to replace the departing team, with the announcement of the five players expected soon.

kRYSTAL's team departed SMASH after two months

During their tenure with SMASH, the roster made progress by climbing from #73 to #32 in the world rankings, securing a spot at the $100,000 We! Play Forge of Masters S2 Finals LAN, where they are expected to debut under a new organization on November 15-17.

The following players are no longer tied to SMASH:

Sweden Mikail "⁠Maikelele⁠" Bill
Germany Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend
Finland Jesse "⁠zehN⁠" Linjala
Slovakia Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk
Serbia Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković

Sweden Jonatan "⁠Devilwalk⁠" Lundberg (coach)

2019-11-13 13:12
niveraa and misutaa are unproven i think scream ex6 logan happy sixer isnt great but its better than whatever they have right now. since happys igl you can throw in one of those upcoming stars i think and -ex6

Read styko's twitter smart-ass, smash were looking for another players to sign and didn't tell it to them, so they decided to leave as soon as they knew that, the whole team was on trial contracts, and smash org didn't even pay salary to them, I mean even if they wouldn't leave themselves they were going to be dropped whatsoever, source : styko twitter

2019-11-13 13:43
Thats probably what will happen. Someone said "Is there a Swede in your new team" & Smash made like a "smile" isch emote to that tweet. twitter.com/latizzjesper/status/11945820.. EDIT: You need to press the tweet to see the "smiley tweet" Maybe Get_Right or Draken? lol
2019-11-13 13:54
Hmm, yeah could be, Friberg is a free agent aswell. There are so many free/benched players, they could build a pretty good team with that. ginx.tv/en/cs-go/csgo-free%20agent-bench.. Edit: With Tier 3/2 team I meant the old Smash lineup btw, i meant that they could've gotten something much better for the amount of money they have.

hmm.. so they have a new org soon, but who will sign them? hope they stick together, krystal most backstabbed player of all times :(
2019-11-13 14:05
Dimitri Vegas are you serios?
2019-11-13 14:07
probably took more time to fly them over to the place where they shot the promo video
2019-11-13 14:07

too bad maikelele broke his "under 6 months" record with NoChance already :(
2019-11-13 14:15

So fucking glad this trash team has disbanded
2019-11-13 15:47

2019-11-13 17:01
CR4ZY should sign maden while they have the chance to replace emi
2019-11-13 17:20
The players might already have an org lined up based on this report.
2019-11-13 17:45
Peeps here doesn't really read the article, they just read the topic and then go "omg shitty nochange disband pls maikelele earthflatner sucks hard and krystal should retire". But what can you expect from 15 year old kids... They even don't know why Smash and NC are apart now, and honestly, i don't even know if they care.
2019-11-13 18:44
Every team maikelele is in disbands. Get rid of him
