NaToSaphiX leaves Nordavind's active roster
The 23-year-old leaves the active roster after what he describes has been a "rocky road" since the team went an international route with his and Kevin "HS" Tarn's signing at the beginning of the year following the loss of Håkon "hallzerk" Fjærli to Dignitas.
Two months after the new team came together, their former in-game leader, Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel, was forced to take a break because of a wrist injury, and he was replaced permanently by Haris "H4RR3" Hadzic after a three-month stand-in period.
The Nordic-Estonian mixture went on to slowly climb up the ranking, reaching their peak in 38th place in early August, but for the most part struggled for deep tournament runs apart from their win in the Eden Arena: Malta Vibes' first cup in early July.
"Despite some good results and improvements, we've realized that the opinions of the players differ too much to evolve into a championship-winning team," NaToSaphiX explained to HLTV.org. "I wish my former colleagues best of luck in their future and hope they find a suitable replacement who more closely aligns with their idea of how to play CS:GO."
Nordavind are one player short as they are about to face Movistar Riders in the semi-finals of the FunSpark ULTI qualifier at 16:00 . The team will also play in the seventh cup of Eden Arena: Malta Vibes, kicking off on August 12.
