Check-Six disband

Following two disappointing ESEA Invite seasons and a poor IEM 6 GC New York showing, Danny "fRoD" Montaner's Check Six has disbanded.

Former coL and EG members Montaner and Tyler "Storm" Wood teamed up with Spencer "hiko" Martin, Dustin "dizzaman" Dilyerd and David "Xp3" Garrido to form Temporary after the former two were removed from Evil Geniuses roughly a year ago.

The team were not allowed to participate in the on-going ESEA Invite season at the time and they couldn't find a sponsor to back their trip to IEM 6 GC Guangzhou which they qualified for over UMX Gaming.

fRoD's and Check Six's last international tournament was IEM 6 GC New York 

At IEM 6 GC New York the team went out in group stage after losses versus SK Gaming and WinFakt, and failed to make the finals of ESEA Invite season 10 as they bowed out against UMX Gaming in the consolidation finals.

During their final ESEA Invite season Matt "Warden" Dickens replaced Martin on the team, and the team once again failed to impress, as they were trashed by Maximum Effort led by Braxton "swag" Pierce in a 4-32 overall loss.

Check Six was:

United States Dustin "dizzaman" Dilyerd
United States Danny "fRoD" Montaner
United States Tyler "Storm" Wood
United States Matt "Warden" Dickens
France David "Xp3" Garrido

According to ESEA News Garrido has signed up to compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in ESEA Invite season 12, despite of the coming Counter-Strike 1.6 season still featuring the massive just under $20,000 prize purse.

There are no reports on what the other members of the team might plan to do in the future, but with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive looking promising in the US, it's unlikely we will see them play again.

Sad :/

Another one here, fRoD is without a doubt one of the best players (if not the best) to ever touch the AWP.

there is no TOP awper of all times, different awpers has different styles, and you cant say that someone is best
2012-08-04 14:19

almost every invite player is focusing on cs:go (maximum effort, ultimax gaming, etc) because of the upcoming eswc qualifiers. the next cs 1.6 season in esea invite, despite of the ridiculously good prize purse, isn't even on most people's minds at the top of invite.

the invite division has been a joke since season 3 (i can only speak for that since i wasn't there for season 2), there were always 2-4 good teams and then teams that didn't belong... i doubt anyone outside of them has ever practiced properly or "had the game on their minds"

So? Isn't that most cases everywhere CS is?!.... Other people still have the drive and motivation to play. Doesn't mean they'll be the best.

i don't think you're getting my point - the people in invite definitely do not have the drive or motivation to play. multiple teams die every season and never practice.

Have you not seen the teams this season? Amazing Online, ttb, Modus, District 7, MouseSpaz, sapphire, Agroup, Death Clutch, Desire are all actively fragging it out and preparing for Invite. This season might not be the most talent ever, but it will be competitive nonetheless. UMX picking up swag ( they won't be as active, could be wrong. ) Maximum Effort and HRG are the 2 teams I really don't see putting in the time and effort that all those other teams mentioned are currently doing. You must not be around the US scene much anymore lurppy~ Even tho you're supporting CS:P on our forums, which I like cuz CS:GO is trash.

that's how it has been before every single season of invite, give it about 3 weeks into the season and the teams who aren't good enough won't even play together anymore, half the players will quit and 2-4 teams will die. business as usual. i have never cared about the lower levels of invite because i just don't have the time to so in that sense i have never followed it, but when i was there it was easy to tell who was practicing and who wasn't, because we'd end up playing the same 2-3 teams over and over and over again. similarly, semphis always tells me how it's down to 3-4 teams that practice, within the first weeks.

And nothing of value was lost. fRoD and Storm need to quit playing Counter-Strike and move on in life. They're just about the two most washed up players I have ever seen.
