Sprout part ways with KEi
The German organization's whirlwind of changes continues as it is down two players after losing Kamil "KEi" Pietkun.
The news comes on the day after it was revealed that Sprout's long-time member and star Josef "faveN" Baumann was transferred to BIG in a record-breaking deal, adding to a plethora of roster changes that have taken place in the organization in recent times.
Over the latter half of the 2021 season, the team moved away from a German-speaking roster with the addition of former Lyngby Vikings player Rasmus "raalz" Steensborg, coach Danny "BERRY" Krüger, and KEi.
The Pole now leaves just two months into his tenure with Sprout despite helping them recover from a difficult period and return to the top 30 in the HLTV.org rankings, picking up victories at local events ESL Meisterschaft and UNITED Pro Series as well as ESEA Premier Season 39.
An unsuccessful campaign in the ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference blotched an otherwise impressive resumé for KEi and the team, who amassed a 50-19 map record (72% win rate) in their short time together.
