Farlig goes into free agency
The Danish AWPer is no longer tied to FunPlus Phoenix after nearly three months on the bench.
The 22-year-old's exit puts an end to a year-long partnership with the Chinese organization, during which he and his teammates peaked in 14th place in the world rankings but failed to break into the top echelons of the game as they missed out on qualifying for the PGL Major, which ultimately ended in the squad being put on the bench and transfer-listed in November.
Farlig has ended his tenure in the international squad with a 1.07 rating, not fully reaching the potential seen in him when he broke out with Copenhagen Flames. He had shown flashes of brilliance with performances such as the one at ESL One: Road to Rio - Europe in 2020, when he ended the RMR event with a 1.22 rating across eight series in his team's 10th place finish, and will now be looking to find his best form once again in a new setup.
The Dane's release, alongside Martin "STYKO" Styk recently being announced by Apeks and Pavle "Maden" Bošković reportedly on his way to ENCE, would leave only Luka "emi" Vuković and Jesse "zehN" Linjala on FPX's bench since the Chinese organization discontinued the CS:GO division in late 2021.
