CLG quits CS: GO competitions because of financial woes

North American eSports organization CLG is reportedly planning its exit from the Counter-Strike scene, after failures of scoring any big results in the past year.

The organization decided to release its CS:GO team and exit the game, according to a report from Jarek “DeKay” Lewis. The move has come as a result of “financial woes” within the team. These changes leave five of North America’s top talents without a team. Pujan “FNS” Mehta, Kenneth “koosta” Suen, Ethan “nahtE” Arnold, Stephen “reltuC” Cutler, Ricky “Rickeh” Mulholland, and coach Steve “Ryu” Rattacasa will be looking for a new team to pick them up. FNS, in a separate DeKay report, was reported to had chosen to part ways with his teammates. The remaining players, minus Rickeh, are hoping to stay together in a new team.

ESL One Cologne 2016 was the last Valve Major that CLG attended. Since then, the team has failed to be successful in international events as well as in smaller, lower tier events. The last notable placement for CLG was top-four at DreamHack Summer June, where they upset Gambit Esports and Fnatic in the group stage. But ever since, they have yet to yield a favorable result against teams at the international and regional level. CLG’s departure from CS:GO marks the end of the organization’s four year pursuit in Valve’s first-person shooter.
