xfl0ud steps down from GORILLAZ

The young Turkish rifler stated that he would share the details of his future plans soon.

Yasin "⁠xfl0ud⁠" Koç announced on Tuesday that he has stepped down from the GORILLAZ active roster in a Tweet. He had only been with the team for a couple of months, having joined the team in place of Rokas "⁠EspiranTo⁠" Milasauskas in May.

The young Turkish rifler played two events with the team, finishing 12th-14th with them at both Elisa Invitational Summer Regionals and Spring Sweet Spring 2 Regionals. xfl0ud's destination is as of yet unconfirmed, but his Tweet suggested that he had another team lined up, stating that he would "share the details very soon."

xfl0ud's departure leaves GORILLAZ with three players

The news will come as a blow to Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist, Jere "⁠sergej⁠" Salo and Miikka "⁠suNny⁠" Kemppi of GORILLAZ, who have struggled to settle on a stable five with their new venture. They have seen Buğra "⁠Calyx⁠" Arkın, EspiranTo and Niels Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen all quickly come and go, and were already looking for a fifth player having only parted ways with the latter in July.

They will need to move quickly to both replace xfl0ud and find a new fifth player, having recently been invited to the Elisa Invitational Fall Regionals, which begin on August 16.

xfl0ud's departure leaves GORILLAZ with just three players:

Sweden Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist
Finland Miikka "⁠suNny⁠" Kemppi
Finland Jere "⁠sergej⁠" Salo

Coldzera already said he will participate in ESL Pro League (He will join Liquid, they will play in last group so there is still time to announce it) and Vaco has 4 year contract with GODSENT. You may now think who will join Gorillaz then? Since I'm finnish I'm insider in Gorillaz drama and I can announce you my friend the 2 following players. Gorillaz 2 new players are - Golden - JW (but as main star rifler, sergej stays AWP) Golden is not becoming main IGL he will be there to develop flusha as igl and be assistant, but yes golden role support he throws grenades

Yeah sure that's your opinion but GORILLAZ just had a massive bootcamp and xfloud only played like 3 or 4 games for them. Sure it might be a good move but the guy is a snake

It is unfair to call a guy who played only 3-4 games snake. Obviously some things do not work out. And although gorillaz is around for quite some time, they haven't been signed by any org yet. They did not play good too. Everyone is free to see other options imo.

Yeah but they just had a bootcamp in Zurich and were about to announce an org. It is also the player break so they are not playing right now

Wow this team has really been a shitshow. It's now a dumpsterfire that someone has to put out. I call they will disband within 3 weeks and flusha will sadly retire. It would have been fun to see him suceed as an IGL but maybe he just doesn't have it in him anymore.
