In a surprising move, the CS division of PinG have announced that they will be leaving the Ukrainian organization due to lack of payment regarding player salaries.
PinG were originally unable to attend ESWC last month due to lack of funds, however thanks to Bogdan “penguin” Marchenko (and his parents), the team managed to attend. It has been reported that the team has gone without the proper payments for months now, making this decision an easy one for the CS team.
This leaves the following players without a home:
Kiril “ANGE1” Karasiow
Juriy “strike” Tereshenko
Alexey “xaoc” Kucherov
Taras “craft1k” Voitenko
Emil “Kucher” Akhundov
The team appears to be sticking together as they will be participating in the WCG Ukrainian qualifier as well as the qualifier for ASUS Summer.
