Spencer “Hiko” Martin revealed that he’s officially entering the free agent market in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Starting today, the North American star is no longer contracted to Rogue Gaming, an organization that he played under for almost three years. This news comes over a month after Rogue announced that it was leaving the CS:GO scene, citing roster instability as the primary reason for its departure.

North American teams that could potentially be interested in Hiko include Cloud9, compLexity Gaming, Lazarus, and Bad News Bears. It’s highly unlikely that Team Liquid or NRG Esports would sign Hiko because they’re easily the best two lineups in the region.

If Hiko decides to compete in Europe instead of NA, he would have to join an international team that speaks English, like Gamer Legion, for example. For now, he’ll have to weigh his options and offers from whatever team wants to bring him on.
