ottoNd, EspiranTo announce free agency
The two players' time in c0ntact has come to an end and they are looking for new opportunities.
Otto "ottoNd" Sihvo and Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas are no longer members of c0ntact, the duo has announced on Twitter on Wednesday. The news was released exactly a year after they completed the transfer to c0ntact from their former organization CR4ZY.
c0ntact's first year in CS:GO has been a disappointing one, seeing the roster drop from the 20th place in the world ranking to #46 in December of last year, when they announced that they are open to offers for their players.
ottoNd and EspiranTo were the only two players to stick around the whole year, playing 121 and 115 maps in 2020, respectively. Not including trial player Owen "smooya" Butterfield, the Finnish AWPer posted the highest rating for c0ntact this year, 1.09, followed by the Lithuanian rifler at 1.06.
From the remaining players that represented c0ntact at the end of 2020, Rigon "rigoN" Gashi has already announced his free agency, while reports have linked Lotan "Spinx" Giladi and Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer to ENCE as a part of a six-man roster.
