Counter-Strike EU Departure

After nearly 5 months of playing under the MnM Banner, we sadly must announce the departure of our Counter-Strike:GO team in Germany. Joining us during Christmas 2014, we have seen the team form and grow into something we are very proud to have represent us. During their time they have built up both a strong reputation and allowed their potential shine through, striving forward to what we hope will be an illustrious eSports career.

Freestyle had left us with a few words to say:

Hello guys,

Today is quite a sad day but also a day where we make another step into the future.

When I joined the team I was quite surprised how nice MnM is overall. They showed me that even a small organisation can make you feel nice as a player. Overall the way we worked together with MnM wasn’t a strict regime – the feeling of the team was more like a small family.

So it’s even more sad to announce that we will leave MnM.

We haven’t difficulties, we didn’t have any real troubles either. It is just that we as a team had to leave and the reasons are known to MnM. It is hard to leave an organisation which is actually really nice and supports you to their bones and blood. The crew behind MnM is so handsome and you can’t even describe how fast and how much you start to love them. Anyway as I mention above this is not only a sad announcement. By leaving MnM, we were able to pave another way. It is not only the roster change that brought something new to the team, it is something big that I will announce in a few days. I don’t really know how to finish this, so all I can say is a big thank you to MnM, you guys are really awesome and I hope you won’t change the way you are. We had a really good time with you and I wish you and everyone behind MnM the best for the future.

It has been an absolute pleasure to have the team represent us. We’d like to wish them the best in the future and hope that wherever they go they cherish their times with MnM.
