Full-Gaming to miss IEM Europe

Full-Gaming have told HLTV.org they will not be in attendance at the IEM5 European Championship Finals.

The Danish side had qualified for the tournament after beating forZe 2-0 in the Relegation Stage last month.

"We sent an e-mail to [ESL admin] crtmn today and told him that we not are attending," Michael "Friis" Jørgensen told HLTV.org.

"We do not have a full team, and there is no reason to attend an event like that as mix."

Full Gaming made news in November when they brought in three players, making it a six-man roster which looked capable of challenging mTw and Copenhagen Wolves for the top spot in Denmark.

However, the organisation's financial problems have ruled out the trip to Kiev and caused unrest in the team.

"Full Gaming are not able to provide financial support anymore due to some tax issues in Denmark, we do not have an organisation anymore," Morten "suraNga" Jensen added.

"Furthermore, wazorN has decided to stop playing."

The former p00nhandlers team have now been reduced to just four players, with Jensen stating they are currently looking for an organisation to represent.

This decision leaves the ESL with one spot to fill less than two weeks before the start of IEM5 European Championship Finals.

HLTV.org understands that the tournament organisation has not yet decided whether to call in a replacement or organise a cup to decide who will go in Full-Gaming's place.

The ex-Full Gaming team currently have:

Denmark Rasmus "FaagaN" Thomsen
Denmark Michael "Friis" Jørgensen
Denmark Morten "suraNga" Jensen
Denmark Christian "turkizh" Bindslev

shit!

not good ;x
2011-01-08 16:46
That sucks ;/
2011-01-08 16:47
I hold my fingers for those guys and I hope they will find an organization as soon as possible because they deserve it.

gg mTw.
2011-01-08 16:49
what?, wtf?
2011-01-08 16:52
don`t u get it ? mtw was the one who "destroyed" this team by "taking" arcadion from them
2011-01-08 20:52
Friis = supreme
2011-01-08 16:49
Friis karrigan ave ArcadioN trace Probably the best players who can come together. Team-X played with that lineup but with suraNga instead of karrigan, they played rly well!
2011-01-08 17:37
zonic has been great last year
2011-01-08 17:50
well I never liked him so that's maybe why I choose the way I did.
2011-01-10 10:49
that not sure. Minet does a lot of damage... but never finish the player. And zonic is the best danish boy with trace and arcadion imo, mTw has the best possible linup
2011-01-08 18:10
agree
2011-01-08 19:30
agree except for karrigan. then again who would I take out from mTw, perhaps minet but he is doing great aswell lately bad news on wazorn quitting and FG not supporting the team anymore btw, but wazorns play was already an indication he had lost some of his touch/motivation recently
2011-01-08 19:42
You must consider Minet, he is playing just as good as zonic, Friss, arcadion and ave. And he is still improveing.
2011-01-11 08:37
yea bad, but it's interesting cause we don't know what team will replace them :)
2011-01-08 16:50
Maybe forZe " The Danish side had qualified for the tournament after beating forZe 2-0 " , If full gaming miss IEM maybe will be foRze.
2011-01-08 16:52
ex-forze, you mean? :P
2011-01-08 17:20
I guess they're gonna make a last-chance tournament online with the teams that lost their relegation match. I believe that's what happened last year or the year before with AGAiN
2011-01-08 17:32
it would be right step by esl, i agree with you.

2011-01-08 17:14
isn't the headline supposed to read something like "Full Gaming without home, miss IEM Eu"? Just my opinion that being left without an org makes for a bigger news than non attendance.
2011-01-08 17:18
Missing the most important European event so far is surely more important than the team ending up without organization.
2011-01-08 21:34

2011-01-08 17:20
hope for eSahara or Power Gaming to replace them =)

2011-01-08 17:51
I believe I've never seen you posting anything positive about a team. Maybe cuz you're from greece, you must have seen some high-level cs there and can't be impressed by newbies like friis right?
2011-01-08 18:15
i donot care about a comment from a person who uses the flag of ukraine. u suppose to produce only "beaches"

2011-01-08 19:56
he says that wont speak to person from Ukrane cause all that you produce as a country is bitches. ps.That s what HE says ,not what i believe.

It was necessary to struggle for the permit. For organizers the step will invite Iron Will convenient from the point of view of delivery of a command to a venue. Though for staginess it would be not bad to invite one of the Swedish collectives. Let's be hopes for qualification for this quote. (sry for my bad eng, google trns :D:D:D)

"We do not have a full team, and there is no reason to attend an event like that as mix." Funny, since they're called Full-Gaming. Nevertheless, it's always sad when a team can't participate for whatever reasons!

2011-01-09 05:16
usually that means they would have to give the spot to forZe but since forZe disbanded maybe give the spot to former forZe players or because the final is in Ukraine and ukrainian team was eliminated in the playoffs give them the spot. My vote goes to a Russian/Ukranian team.
2011-01-09 06:00
take ptn and beat mtw again :D
2011-01-09 06:18
