ex-SMASH seek offers

The former members of SMASH have announced their intention to remain together as they await offers from an organization.

The European team were unable to come to an agreement to extend their contracts with SMASH earlier this month, bringing about the end of a six-month tenure with the organization mid-way through Home Sweet Home Cup 8.

The roster, currently playing as ex-SMASH, have no events lined up following their elimination from the eighth iteration of the tournament, in which they managed a 2-0 win over FATE before ultimately falling to Endpoint in a keenly contested three-map series with Saif "⁠Sayf⁠" Jibraeel as a stand-in for Kristjan "⁠fejtZ⁠" Allsaar.

ex-SMASH are in search of a new organization to call home

Now, with the 22-year-old Estonian having recovered from health issues and making a return to the roster, ex-SMASH will look to replicate their results in previous months, a period in which they climbed to No. 41 in the world rankings off the back of wins over the likes of AGO, c0ntact, and Nordavind.

In a statement to HLTV.org, coach Anton "⁠ToH1o⁠" Georgiev stressed that "everyone on the team is active and hungry for wins" before further elaborating that they have even increased their workload since losing their organizational backing:

"Our goal is to work on consistency and keep up the high level of CS that we're playing - we're always working on something new to implement and trying to minimize mistakes," the Bulgarian coach added. "Since parting ways with SMASH, we haven't changed our work schedule, and we even extended our working days with more theory.

"We had to play with a stand-in during our last few matches because our fifth player, fejtZ, had some health problems, but now everything is okay. In the near future we want to become one of the top thirty teams in the world while playing in ESEA Open, where we hope to do our best to make it into MDL.

"We just need a stable home that can provide support and meet the player's needs. We are open to offers from any region!"

ex-SMASH are:

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

Just seems like they are cheapskates at SMASH. They have these rich DJs behind them but can't be bothered to invest in their CS teams. Same thing happened with the Godsent squad.

Lul, well, I don't really know them, just seems like they entered esports not because of passion but because it's 'hip' and a free boost for their brand

Big POG here, this lineup WASNT able to do much with NEEX, the Polish awp Star for some people to say, but once they kicked him, and got Shokz they wrrr able to beat Spirt and many other high teams.
