Sean "sgares" Gares has left 4Nothing due to not being able to take time off work to attend events with the team. His replacement will be announced in the coming days.
Gares was one of the members who formed Area51 prior to the North American ESWC qualifier, which the team managed to win thanks to his heroics in the grand final versus Team Dynamic.
Area51 then placed 3rd at ESWC 2012 where Gares & co won a map off of VeryGames while he also finished as the event's best AWP player. The team then finished the year by winning the previous ESEA Invite season.

Since then Area51 became the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team of 4Nothing, whose support would allow them to attend more international events.
However, it now seems that is exactly why Gares has left the team, as he has started a new full time job that will not allow him to take enough time off to travel to the international events 4Not plans to attend.
