SHiPZ announces free agency

The Bulgarian rifler is seeking new opportunities after being released from c0ntact.

Georgi "⁠SHiPZ⁠" Grigorov has announced that he is is no longer contracted to c0ntact and has entered free agency, ending a one-year-long tenure with the American organisation. The 20-year-old was benched in August alongside Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković to make room for Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield and Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi, who were added on a trial basis.

SHiPZ is the second player to depart c0ntact since they made their entire CS:GO roster available for transfer at the end of 2020. Rigon "⁠rigoN⁠" Gashi announced the end of his time with the organisation on Thursday, which leaves five members' fate up in the air.

SHiPZ has entered free agency

During his time with c0ntact, SHiPZ averaged a 1.01 rating, with the team being unable to achieve deep placements in any notable tournaments. After being benched from the roster, SHiPZ spent the remainder of the year playing on MBAPPEEK, a Bulgarian mixteam featuring Kamen "⁠bubble⁠" Kostadinov and Viktor "⁠v1c7oR⁠" Dyankov.

With the off-season nearing its end, SHiPZ will hope to find a new place to call home in short order. In his announcement, the young rifler stated it was a pleasure to be a part of c0ntact, and asked any interested parties to reach out to him via Twitter.

He is not FA. They should get Anarkez and autimatic be rifler instead. Or if he wants to be awp then get sausol if they are looking for promising youngster rifler.

It feels like this guy just keeps wasting his and his teammates' time despite having quite a potential. At some point it did look like he's going to be huge yet at this point his previous achievements (am I allowed to say so) seem to be more of a fluke.

I think its the other way around, his team wasted his time. Getting stuck in the missmanaged mess called c0ntact was the biggest issue

might be the case ngl. Still it's always up to the player himself you know. How ever bad the team may be yet that's only him who's accountable for his decisionmaking, right? So at the end of the day there's no way you'd srsly blame the org.

contact team made a mistake by benching him-so if thats true means he had 1 year contract until today so contact benches him and not releasing him from his contract hoping someone pays KEKW.Now teams will sign him for free
