Team YP, the esports branch of YouPorn, which ventured into Counter-Strike in November with the marking of the male group known as Phenomenon, one of the rising lists in the CIS scene, has now been left with a CSGO division.
Under the new association, and in the wake of getting two experienced players as Vadim “DavCost” Vasilyev and Vladislav “curve” Svistov, the group figured out how to secure a spot at the MLG Columbus logged off qualifier, however visa issues kept them from going to the occasion with their full lineup.
In a disclosure to HLTV.org, Svistov revealed the differences with YP’s management:
“We would like to thank Team YP for everything they did for us and wish them the best of luck!, Unfortunately, our plans for the future were not the same. Our line-up was created three months ago, and we do not want our growth to stop. “Our goal was to reach the Major, but we could not play with our full line-up, so we failed to qualify. “We will be playing in all the qualifiers for big events and also in tournaments we get invited to. “Until we find a new organisation, we will play under the tag Phenomenon. All organisations interested in us can reach us via email at [email protected]”
Phenomenon’s roster consists of the following players:
Dmitriy “Dima” Bandurka
Dmitry “S0tF1k” Forostyanko
Vadim “DavCost” Vasilyev
Vladislav “arch” Svistov
Anton “kibaken” Kolesnikov
