Orange Leaves Team Archon
Today, Orange has announced his departure from Team Archon. Team Archon has begun to shift away from the competition side of esports to a more stream-heavy focus with the departure of other large names such as Firebat. Ultimately, Orange has cited this shift away from competition as his reason for leaving stating “myself and the team want to go in different directions” in an interview with The Daily Dot, even making the point of saying it was his personal decision.
Orange made a name for himself in the 15 months he has been with Team Archon, taking first at IEM Katowice 2015 and DreamHack Leipzig 2016 among others. With this success, it is sure that Orange will find a home on another team which will allow him to continue competing at a high level. After all, with his victory at the Americas Winter Championship, he will compete in the Hearthstone World Championships this November. We wish the best of luck to Orange and to Team Archon moving forward.
