After spending four years with CLG as a member of its female CS:GO team, Stephanie “Missharvey” Harvey is leaving the organization.
The experienced Counter-Strike player took to Twitter in order to explain her decision to leave the team. “Being a sixth is a very interesting challenge because the line is so thin between trying to help the team or wanting it to struggle so you can play instead,” Harvey said. CLG Red moved to a six-woman roster back in July of last year after acquiring Mounira “GooseBreeder” Dobie from Team Dignitas.
Unfortunately, the team began to use GooseBreeder a lot more than Missharvey after the roster change. As a result, the 32-year-old veteran spent most of her time with the team watching from the bench. In her Twitlonger, she went on to talk about how she decided to help the team succeed, even if it meant she wouldn’t be in the starting lineup.
“It became obvious that the team was growing closer, healthier and that I was hurting my chance to be on the starting five by investing my time into it,” Harvey said. “But, I still decided to help them as much as I could, at least up until Katowice. I became a beacon they could all rely on in-game and outside the game.”
She went on to reveal she will be meeting with various organizations to find herself a new home. “My number one goal is to compete as I believe I am still someone to be feared in a server. I have so much to bring to a team as a leader, a player and a brand.”
Missharvey will be competing in the upcoming WESG 2019 tournament in China, where she will be representing Team Canada.
