Two players have left their teams in somewhat mysterious circumstances - and though we already knew TACO was out, he’s offered a bit more information as to when he’ll be back.
Which is that he has no idea. Thanks, we guess.
In a somewhat cryptic twitlonger, TACO made it clear that he isn’t leaving CS or the team, but rather that his focus is on taking care of himself, learn and step back so he can direct his life and career in the right direction.
This also means he won’t be back for the Major cycle, resulting in 00NATION most likely continuing with the roster that beat NIP at Pro League just one week ago. Not too bad of an idea if you ask us.
We wish TACO all the best, and it’s a shame that a two-time Major winner won’t be able to attend at all; but health is more important.
In other roster news, regali has been benched by Copenhagen Flames despite being, by most accounts, their best player. Unless you ask their head of esports, of course:
“It should be obvious to all that regali possesses some unique qualities. As far as his raw skill and mechanical abilities are concerned, he already belongs to the absolute world elite. At the same time, we also have to recognize that in some ways the fit isn’t perfect for how we want to play and the direction of the team.”
Which begs the question: If he is already an elite level AWPer, why on Earth aren’t you changing the way you play to fit him instead of vice versa?
Oh, yeah. Because it’s probably a lie.
regali will have no shortage of suitors, we imagine. He’s very talented and even though the Flames head of esports is trying to ward people away, he is probably an upgrade for a lot of teams.
Back to fnatic, anyone?
