Official: Codewise Gaming to pull Aristocracy funding
Codewise Gaming have officially confirmed that they will stop backing the Aristocracy team.
In a Facebook post, it was announced that Codewise Gaming are ending their cooperation with the team today, less than six months after taking over the Aristocracy lineup and brand.
The news follows reports from several media outlets - including HLTV.org - that the players were on the lookout for a new home after Codewise Gaming's sudden decision, which took the team by surprise as they were hoping to build a long-term project with the organisation.
Since leaving devils.one in February due to a falling out with the organisation, Aristocracy have found success hard to come by, only winning the ESL Polish Championship Spring Finals. The team will have to fight to keep their spot in the ESL Pro League in the relegation stage after finishing last of their group following defeats to Astralis, fnatic and North.
Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's charges, who will play under the name "ARCY" until a new organisation is found, will take part in this weekend's ESL Polish Championship Autumn Finals, where a spot in the IEM Katowice closed qualifier and almost $40,000 will be on offer. In two weeks' time, they will travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina to attend the QI Banja Luka tournament.
The Polish team have the following roster:
