NEEX departs SMASH

Sebastian "NEEX" Trela has announced that he left SMASH, citing lack of progress and poor role distribution as the reason.

The Polish player was in SMASH since they signed their new roster at the start of 2020, and was a part of their effort in reaching the Europe Minor Closed Qualifier. After three months with the team, the 23-year-old has decided to leave the European mixture.

Leaving the team was his decision, NEEX stated in the announcement

SMASH is currently ranked 68th in the world, the highest they have ever been, but lost all five BO3 matches they played in the last week across LOOT.BET Season 6, Home Sweet Home Cup, and Cyber.Bet cup.

Bad results prompted NEEX to leave the roster, citing roles that don't fit, a style that "completely didn't make sense", and lack of progress. The Pole also stated that he is "not the type of player who will stick to something at all costs, for example, to make good money", and announced he would share more information soon.

Meanwhile, SMASH have been spotted playing with Estonian player Kristjan "shokz" Jakobson, but revealed that they will be testing players in the coming weeks until they find the perfect fit. SMASH are currently represented by the following players:

Bulgaria Kamen "bubble" Kostadinov
Sweden Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun
Sweden Denis "grux" Gutaj
Estonia Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar
Estonia Kristjan "shokz" Jakobson (stand-in)

The SMASH roster is quite weird actually and even may have problem communicating in English. Wonder why didn't they just keep the GODSENT players?

They didn't pay any salary to the NoChance roster. All just a trial for both parties. Then the org tried to make roster changes behind the back of the players. The roster then left because they didn't feel SMASH was the org for them

Ya I know that. Actually I think the GODSENT at best may win a title in A-Tier or B-Tier tournament, but I don't see players that are still available in the market can form a better team than GODSENT. That's why I don't think SMASH did a right decision.

I hope he can find a project that fits him. He is talented and in the right environment he most likely can become a great player

Who even is shokz? grux is so bad, they have to kick him. bubble could be a coach, but he can't be a player anymore, his firepower is way to low. disco doplan play poorly as well atm. fejtZ is very bad, he plays stupid, and he doesn't have enough of good aim to be an entry fragger. Honestly there are no good players in this team. It has to disband soon. Just wasting the money of the org. tbh.
