Fessor leaves South, team disbands*
The five players have decided to part ways, disbanding the 20-day-old project.
Frederik "Fessor" Sørensen was the first to announce that he was parting ways with South effective immediately as he did not believe that the project with his more experienced countrymen was a good fit, although the youngster is eager to continue playing and is open to other opportunities to keep competing.
The youngster's departure came less than a month since the team's unveiling in August — with only a handful of matches played across four tournaments —, and a day after a painful loss to Spirit Academy.
The Danish squad, led by Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen, followed suit and announced they were disbanding after failing to show promise in their first weeks together, as the team finished 5-8th at the Funspark ULTI 2021 Europe Regional Series 3 Closed Qualifier and the IEM Fall 2021 Europe Open Qualifier, and narrowly missed out on the V4 Future Sports Festival International Cup falling to SINNERS in the qualifier's semi-finals.
Fessor's exit from South means he is out of his third team this year, having started off 2021 in BLUEJAYS' international roster before joining up with Philip "aizy" Aistrup in HYENAS, the squad that was disbanded in July when star player Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye retired.
The rest of the players, after announcing the team's disbandment, have also joined the free agent pool at a complicated time for transfers with the PGL Major fast approaching.
