According to a Twitlonger post by Godz, he was not cut from the team. In fact he had notified the organisation several weeks in advance that he would be leaving the team to search for avenues elsewhere.
This may be surprising to some of you because of the wording in the official announcement but I wasn’t cut from NRG. The roster changes were a result of me letting the org know several weeks ago that I wanted to leave the team and go in a different direction, I didn’t feel like I had good synergy with the team inside or outside of the game. As far as I know it was a similar situation for Pookz but I won’t speak for him. NRG is a great org and I hope to work with them in the future but something was definitely lost in translation in that announcement and I felt the need to add some clarity to the situation. Thanks for the support everyone. ^___^
