Moscow Five today announced that the Counter-Strike 1.6 team has been released from the organization, effective immediately.

The announcement came via the organization's website, stating that the team which was the stepping-stone to what later became an organization had been let go.

The Russian CS team was back in February of 2011 transfered from Meet Your Makers to Moscow Five, with the Russian organization announcing the coming to eSports was with huge plans.

The move to release the team comes as Moscow Five evaluated the future, where it has concluded that the game didn't have enough future events to keep the team.


ROMJkE & co. at DH Summer, the last event for the team as M5 

Moscow Five releases the following players:

 Eduard "ed1k" Ivanov
 Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov
 Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
 Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov
 Roman "hacker" Abramov

While under the M5 tag the CS team secured wins at MSI Beat IT Russia 2011, ASUS Final Battle of the Year 2011, ASUS Winter 2011, as well as a third place finishes at WCG 2011 and IEM6 GC Kiev.

In an interview on the M5 website, Eduard "ed1k" Ivanov stated he might consider coming back, to play if Valve decides to host a "The International" for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

They said that long time ago, now CS:GO is a little bit better and neo plays it. I would love to see them on LoL pro scene :D
2012-08-14 00:12
I´ve heard that neo is decent in LoL but far to be in the pro scene.
