MVP PK leave CS
Team MVP and their CS:GO squad have parted ways, with the players set to turn their focus to VALORANT, according to Fomos.
The decision came after a period of turmoil and instability for MVP PK that culminated with the team finishing in fourth place in the East Asia closed qualifier for the Asia Minor - one of just two tournaments that they attended in 2020.
Team MVP, one of the most successful esports organisations in South Korea, expanded into CS:GO in late 2015 with the signing of a team coached by Seon-Ho "termi" Pyeon, who had enjoyed success during his 1.6 career while playing for e-STRO and WeMade FOX.
MVP PK attended several Big Events over the years, most notably the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals and ESL One Cologne 2019. The team also picked up title wins at a few regional tournaments, including the eXTREMESLAND 2018 Asia Finals, and came closest to reaching a Major last summer, when they placed fourth in the StarLadder Major Play-In Stage after a third-place finish at the Asia Minor.
The South Korean team become the latest Asian Counter-Strike squad to switch their focus to VALORANT ahead of the game's launch this summer. Last month, Japanese side Absolute, who had attended the WESG 2018 World Finals, suspended their CS:GO activities to prepare for the transition to Riot Games' tactical shooter.
MVP PK played their last match with the following roster:
