SMASH part ways with team

SMASH has parted ways with its CS:GO squad after the two sides did not agree on contract extensions, the organization has announced.

Kamen "⁠bubble⁠" Kostadinov's side had played under the Belgium-based organization for six months, having come together under SMASH as a brand new team in December 2019 as a replacement for the squad now known as GODSENT.

Although they didn't attend any LAN tournaments in that time, the European mix managed to climb to No. 41 in the rankings on the back of consistent online showings, with a placing in the Europe Minor closed qualifier and a couple of runner-up finishes in Home Sweet Home Cups 2 and 5 helping them reach their current peak.

bubble & co. are looking for a new home

The Belgian organization has stressed that although they will not field a team in the near future, this is not the end for CS:GO in SMASH:

"Today we say goodbye to our CSGO squad. Unfortunately we didn't come to an agreement to move forward with an extension of the contracts. During our six months together we managed to climb the ladder and are now ranked #41 in the world, a result we are very proud of considering this happened with only online matches."

"We hope the players and coach will find a new home soon where they can develop further as a team. (In case of interest contact Anton Georgiev) We have shared some amazing moments and truly enjoyed our time together!

"This means that for the near future SMASH will not have a CSGO roster. However, this is not a “goodbye” but a “see you later”. We're pleased to tease that we are expanding our horizon and will come with some very exciting announcements in a few days."

SMASH had the following lineup:

Estonia Kristjan "⁠fejtZ⁠" Allsaar
Bulgaria Kamen "⁠bubble⁠" Kostadinov
Sweden Joakim "⁠disco doplan⁠" Gidetun
Sweden Denis "⁠grux⁠" Gutaj
Estonia Kristjan "⁠shokz⁠" Jakobson

Bulgaria Anton "⁠ToH1o⁠" Georgiev (coach)

Ofc they do. It was just the agreement with NoChance that was no salary. It was a trial for both parties and NoChance said no Chance to SMAH and joined Godsent. This version of SMASH did get paid
