RUSTY AND HAMPUS DEPART PASSIONS

Hampus “hampus” Poser and Alfred “RuStY” Karlsson have departed passions—the team formerly known as Red Reserve.

The news of the two members leaving passions comes just a few weeks after the team parted ways with their former organization, as well as ex-NiP member Mikail “Maikelele”Bill.

hampus parts ways with the ex-Red Reserve core

According to the players, the team could no longer continue together due to disagreements and personal issues. This means that passions dropped down to just three members:Daniel “djL” Narancic and the twins Fredrik “FREDDyFROG”Gustafsson and Joakim “Relaxa” Gustafsson. The remaining trio has decided to revert back to their old team name,Japaleno, and will be playing ESEA Premier S26 under that banner.

Meanwhile, it’s unknown where the former Epsilon Hype duoAlfred “RuStY” Karlsson and Hampus “hampus” Poser will end up, but it’s expected that they will continue playing together.

Japaleno, formerly passions, is now down to:

HUNDEN JOINS ALTERNATE ATTAX

Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen has joined ALTERNATE aTTaX, moving out of the Danish scene to take over the leadership of the German squad.

After a long tenure in the lower echelons of the Danish scene, where he lead players such as Jakob “JUGi” Hansen, Nikolaj“niko” Kristensen and Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke early in their careers, Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen has decided to try out a new challenge, joining ALTERNATE aTTaX.

HUNDEN will be calling in English for the first time in his career

The Danish in-game leader’s tenure has been marked by his best players being picked up by organizations higher up the food chain, with Heroic’s acquisitions of JUGi, niko andPatrick “es3tag” Hansen being the latest ones.

HUNDEN confessed that dealing with the Danish scene was becoming frustrating, and that lead him to join the German team:

“I honestly needed to try something new. Danish Counter-Strike has irritated me on an extreme level for some time now, and the evil circle continued to arise each time the team reached a certain level.”

“So today I am joining ALTERNATE, where the goal is the same, but the challenge is different. This will be my first time to act as an English speaking in-game leader. It’s a tough task, but we are making progress every single day.”

Niklas “Sliver” Timmermann, ALTERNATE aTTaX’s Deputy Manager, added a statement as well, welcoming HUNDENand saying goodbye to Christian “crisby” Schmitt:

“Rumors already called it and now we may gladly confirm that we’ve just signed more than a player but a GOD in his profession! From now on Hunden will be our IGL. May the heavens have mercy with our opponents, Hunden won’t.”

“Still, we would like to thank Crisby for his extraordinary services in the last two years.”

ALTERNATE aTTaX now have the following roster.

Denmark Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen
Germany Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch
Germany Stefan “stfN” Seier
Germany Lukas “ecfN” Kauer
Germany Florian “syrsoN” Rische

OUTLAWS LOSE TEAM

Outlaws and their Counter-Strike team have parted ways, the players have told HLTV.org.

In a statement, team coach Anton “ToH1o” Georgiev explained that the two parties have opted against renewing contracts due to “internal difficulties.”

The Bulgarian team had been part of Outlaws, a project launched by betting solutions provider UltraPlay with a view to nurturing young talent, since September 2016.

SPELLAN & co seek a new organisation

During their time under Outlaws’ banner, the team won back-to-back ESL South East Europe Championship seasons and also CEVO Season 12 Main, and placed second at Assembly Winter 2016, in Helsinki.

“We have only positive things to say about Outlaws and UltraPlay as a company supporting this project,” Georgiev told HLTV.org.

“We wish them the best of luck in their new esports projects in the future.

“We are now teamless, and if anyone is interested you can contact me by email at toh1o0o0@gmail.com.”

The news represents yet another blow for Outlaws, who recently criticised NRG over fielding Cvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrovin official matches without a transfer fee having been agreed, with the player’s legal representative then stating that his client was not officially tied to the Bulgarian organisation.

Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov & co are now in a hurry to find a new home, with the team due to travel to Denmark next week to compete at Cross Border Esport 2017, which will have over $15,000 in prize money.

The Bulgarian team have the following line-up:

Bulgaria Nikolay “niki1” Pantaleev
Bulgaria Nikola “NK4Y” Radushev
Bulgaria Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov
Bulgaria Ivan “Rock1nG” Stratiev
Bulgaria Georgi “SHiPZ” Grigorov
