Chaos have released their male CS:GO team, the organisation has announced. As reported earlier by Jarek Dekay Lewis, North American Organization Chaos Esports club has decided to call quits on their CS:GO project after the “Ongoing Corona Pandemic” has been a smite which hindered their ability to provide support.
Chaos Esports club is currently competing at the DreamHack masters NA winter 2020 where they are currently leading the table with 2 wins and are also the one among those who will battle for the whopping prize pool of 500,000USD at the IEM Global Challenge. Laying its roots back in 2018 featuring players like Markus “pronax” Wallsten, and Mikail “Maikelele” Bill on their roster, Chaos too rebranded from its former version, “Digital Chaos” back then.
In their blog posted, it was stated, “At the start of the year we saw the beginning of a pandemic that would have lasting effects far greater than any of us realized. As the year continued it became clear that in-person entertainment was not going to be viable and esports events and tournaments were going to experience massive change.
This would have far reaching impacts throughout the ecosystem, particularly on sponsor value, removing a large portion of revenue that esports teams need to stay competitive and effectively support their players.
Sadly, despite a great deal of effort, the impacts of this have now hit home with us and put pressure on our organization’s ability to support our rosters and the incredible players behind them. As a result, we are releasing our CS:GO team at the end of the year and searching for a new home for our Rainbow Six team.”
Apart from this roster update, Erick “Xeppaa” Bach had been linked to FURIA but still there was no official word from Chaos Esports Club’s side.
