Splyce Removes abE and Professor_Chaos
On Saturday, the organization Splyce announced that they have removed Abraham “abE” Fazli and Andrew “Professor_Chaos” Heintz from their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
Splyce recently have been struggling with tournaments and qualifiers, most notably placing top-14 at the ESL One: Cologne qualifier, ultimately not qualifying for the major. The team also took last place in their two most recent tournaments, DreamHack Austin and CEVO Gfinity Pro-League Season 9 finals.
The organization stated on their website that the roster was at a hault, and was not going anywhere, so roster changes had to be done.
“We appreciate their hard work and fiercely competitive nature, and we are grateful to them for playing a key role in the foundation of the Splyce CS:GO team. We have enjoyed our time working with them and wish them the best in their careers moving forward."
The official press release went on to describe their hopes for the future of this organization's CS:GO team.
"Despite our Cinderella run to the first North American major, the team agreed that the existing lineup hit a glass ceiling, keeping us from reaching the next tier of success in CS:GO. The roster openings will allow us to try out potential players for the fall season”
The organization has yet to hint at any players they are looking at. Due to these two drops, the team will be looking for a new support player and lurker.
The active roster now consists of the following players:
- Arya “arya” Hekmat
- Jason “jasonR” Ruchelski
- David “DAVEY” Stafford
