Today there has been a slight Danish shuffle within the CSGO scene. Dignitas lose schneider, the Swedish ex-dignitas player said his reason for leaving was a lack of communication within the team. Here is his statement taken from the dignitas website:
“It is with both sadness and a bit of happiness of doing the right thing I have to say that I am leaving Team Dignitas, and this is why.
In this month we have had pretty good results, but the communication has not been what it was expected to be at this point. We talked a lot in the beginning of me transitioning into the Danish language but it was just too hard and during rounds sometimes we didn’t understand each other at all. That obviously does not work in the long run in a game like CS where it’s sometimes about seconds that change the outcome of a game. This led to many mistakes during games, frustration, and a feeling that something is missing in our game. I really enjoyed playing with these guys, and I see their potential, but it is not with ME speaking a mix of Swedish/English that they can become a top 3 team in the world.
Even though everyone probably knows we were playing GOOD, we beat everyone we were supposed to be able to beat right of the bat on a consistent level, there was no way our communication could bring us the the very top. And me as a person I do not like wasting my own time or wasting time of people I cherish and wish the best. I am not in it for the money so I just didn’t see the point in possibly stopping my friends from reaching top 8 and securing their success.
I am also very sad because my grandmother died just a few days ago, it obviously removes focus from me and I don’t feel like holding this group of talented individuals back. Even though I am not playing in this major I wish them all the best and I know they can reach top 5-8, maybe even further.”
This now leaves dignitas as:
- Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen
- Philip “aizy” Aistrup
- Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye
- Jacob “Pimp” Winneche
We also saw k0nfig leave SK having only recently unofficially joining SK Gaming last month. He cited multiple problems within the team as the reason for leaving also stating he is a free agent looking for a team, which we think is him hinting to dignitas that he wants to join.
As well as k0nfig SK might suffer another player loss with tenzki also rumoured to be leaving the organisation after he was removed from the SK Gaming ESEA roster moving to the team dignitas ESEA roster.
The tenzki news is unofficial so SK Gaming are currently:
- Michael “Friis” Jørgensen
- Casper “cadiaN” Møller
- Asger “AcilioN” Larsen
- Jesper “tenzki” Plougmann
