- TSM CS:GO Team Update
As the major 2015 CS:GO tournament circuits come to a close, so does the contract with our now released CS:GO roster consisting of Andreas ‘Xyp9x’ Højsleth, René ‘cajunb’ Borg, Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen, Peter ‘dupreeh’ Rothmann, and Nicolai ‘device’ Reedtz. It is with a heavy heart that we part ways with the talented squad, nonetheless on amicable terms. Our past year with the Danish team has been filled with many successes, scoring first place finishes in many large tournaments. It is with these successes that the squad became known as one of the top five teams in the world.
Despite this, we at TSM and the team mutually agree that letting their contract expire and allowing them to seek a new organization is for the best. As TSM operates out of Los Angeles, the large time zone difference and distance separating us and the team creates large issues with accessibility.
As such, the newly released squad will be seeking an organization within Europe that will grant them a larger amount of control and flexibility. Meanwhile, our organization seeks to build a new CS:GO team to be based near LA. We wish the old roster many blessings, and bid them adieu.
“The CS:GO team was a wonderful pleasure to work with. They were a group of extremely talented and hardworking players, and it is a great shame to see them go. I wish them the best of luck for the future.”
-Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh
“We were really happy to work for the TSM organization. They provided us with everything we wanted for the entire year, and did their best to keep us happy. However, our long term visions did not align, and we believed that it was the best for both parties to part. We would like to thank TSM for all they’ve done for us, and hope to meet their new roster at future tournaments”
