Sangal release Turkish core
Four individuals are no longer part of the organization as they pursue a new career in VALORANT.
Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli, Ahmet "paz" Karahoca, Engin "ngiN" Kor, and Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran have all been released by Sangal as the quartet looks for a new start in VALORANT, the organization has announced.
The core had represented Sangal since the organization's acquisition of the Turkey5 roster in April 2020. The squad's most notable achievements include a title win at ESL Turkey Championship Summer 2020 Finals, as well as a first place finish in ESEA Advanced Season 35 Europe.
Despite their results, Sangal did not manage to break into the top echelons of European Counter-Strike, only briefly holding the #35 spot in the world rankings.
"Every good thing has an end," the organization announced on Twitter. "Today, we are parting ways with our CS:GO team as they want to continue their careers in VALORANT. We would like to thank our team for being a part of the Sangal family and wish them success in their future careers."
As it stands, both Caner "Soulfly" Kesici and Efekan "S3NSEY" Topaloglu remain under contract with the organization. Soulfly only joined last September after the team parted ways with Ömer "imoRR" Karataş while S3NSEY has been with roster since April.
Sangal are left with only:
