Ravens announce shutdown

Roskilde Ravens have announced the shutdown of their current Counter-Strike 1.6 team, which in past time only consisted of four members.

The Danish organization today released a statement which stated that all players in the organization have been released from their contracts. The statement reads the following:

"From today Roskilde Ravens is releasing all players from their contracts and are not signing any new teams or players or participating in any future tournaments until further notice.

We believe that during 2010 Ravens has slowly moved away from the core values and goals set together with our teams, players and sponsors. As a result of this we have in unison with our sponsors decided to rebuild Ravens as a team and brand over the following months."

Ravens saw their Counter-Strike 1.6 perform a third place finish at IEM4 European Championship Finals, but since then not been able to produce similar results. Michael "Friis" Jørgensen last month parted ways with Ravens, to join up with p00nhandlers (now wCrea), which left the team with four members.

Ravens consisted of:

Denmark Danny "BERRY" Krüger
Denmark Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer
Denmark Marc "nexiz" Woolrych
Denmark Baljit "zE-" Lal

Several of the members have already found new homes. With the shutdown of Ravens, NP! have spawned again. The team was featured earlier this year at Copenhagen Games but will this time around consist of different members

NP! consist of:

Denmark Danny "BERRY" Krüger
Denmark Daniel "dalle" Kjersgaard
Denmark Samal "SFM" Mikkelsen
Denmark Martin "qUICKN" Hvass
Denmark Taymaz "TAY" Babaiasl

Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer has also found a new home, as he has joined forces with teamteam, filling the void of Tomas xlo Falden, who was released last month.

teamteam now house following:

Denmark Peter "Maximus" Østergaard
Denmark Marc "katulen" Winther
Denmark Jesper "luffeb" Andersen
Denmark Peter "xone" Scheel
Denmark Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer

Baljit "zE-" Lal and Marc "nexiz" Woolrych are both without a home, but it is expected that both will be taking a break from competitive gaming.

NOOOOOOOO :(

2010-08-08 23:12

2010-08-06 00:03
He quit cs 3 months ago.
2010-08-06 00:08
I think and hope that he will return. Danish cs scene needs him.
2010-08-06 00:10
He said he might come back sometime, but who knows. :)
2010-08-06 00:14

Lol? Cut the crap mate. Minet has been performing very well latly. zE is good, however not on mtw level. And on xplayn.com (a danish gaming site) he announced that he havent been playing for 3 months, and that he aint planing to return just yet.
2010-08-06 09:27
u made my day.
2010-08-06 10:59
nothing really funny here, when at his peek zE- was really impressive
2010-08-06 15:02
if he had been consistent then i might agree with you, but i dont think anyone will -minet for a once in a blue moon insanely peeking player.
2010-08-06 16:14
zE- and minet are just different players. imo mTw needed what minet had to give, but zE- is on the same lvl as minet, no doubt about that. btw why to you always post 2 messages at the same time? You know you don't have to double-click on the "post" button right?
2010-08-06 16:17
ah right. i dunno something is wrong, im not double posting on purpose :s
2010-08-06 16:17
ok

i agree
2010-08-06 15:10
Combine Denmark's best fraggers and we might have a dream team on fnatic's level O.o (since they have 3 of Sweden's top fraggers in one team) Backup riflers never work too well these days.
2010-08-06 12:13
mtw? :p
2010-08-09 21:25
zE- was just awesome, I hope he won't retire
