PlayZone lose CS team

PlayZone have announced that their Counter-Strike squad have been reduced to pieces.

The Finnish team had brought in Luukas "lukee" Paananen, Hannu "H^N" Pohjalainen and Lassi "MulleN" Nurmio ahead of the WCG Nordic Finals after three of their players had been drafted for military duty.

At the event in Helsinki, PlayZone failed to impress and lost all four matches, which raised great concerns regarding the future of the team.

PlayZone's poor form also resulted in a dispute between Joni "Freon" Huumo and Kimmo "BASiC" Fagerholm, the team's oldest pieces, with the latter deciding to retire from gaming as a result.

"In their first event, the new players lacked experiance and became nervous, so Freon did not think they could become experienced fast because they had EPS Nordic soon," PlayZone owner Kristopher "Sight" Smith told

"He wanted to take in some old players from the Finnish scene and try them out, while BASiC disagreed and wanted to stick with the new ones, seeing their potential.

"But Freon did not want this, and BASiC has decided to quit professional CS for now and let Freon find his new team."

With EPS Nordic just around the corner, PlayZone are already in the process of finding new players, whose names should soon be revealed.

PlayZone have been reduced to this one member:

Finland Joni "Freon" Huumo

No thats not good. It may be a better team, but this is why people never get the chance to go pro.

2010-08-17 14:10
It's a shame, every time I think of a Finnish team it reminds me of that team that dominated one time and won the tournament then went to military straight after because they couldn't delay any longer. I'm not sure if it was PlayZone or someone else though.
2010-08-17 14:11
too bad, H^N & Naab are freaking good and with some more practice that squad could've done even more damage than the previous one..

BASiC quits? saaad he's so fucking sick :o by far the best in this line up (and the previous one)
2010-08-17 14:47
Expected, but sad. I agree with BASiC, the new players have a lot of potential, especially H^N. He should deserve a second chance in a team.

2010-08-17 18:13
If you want fresh blood in the Finnish scene one has to be patient and help them grow up and get used to the pressure. Basic > Freon this time.
2010-08-17 18:19
lol, Freon would have probably taken spin and some others and while they are decent players, they aren't going to develop more than they have. And also, EPS Nordic is played online so they wouldn't probably have been as nervous as they were on lan anyway so it's a pretty bad decision imo if that was really the reason
2010-08-17 18:34
There are many more good oldschool players to take into teh squad but no clue why they aren't taking.
2010-08-17 19:11
Go Freon!
2010-08-17 19:30
Kimmo "BASiC" Fagerholm is crack or godlike. gL :D
2010-08-17 20:07
Sad move really. It is a shame they did not give the new blood a real chance to do anything.
2010-08-17 23:20
