Team YP have been left without a Counter-Strike squad.
Youporn Organization ventured into Esports in November 2015. They picked up the CIS team, Phenomenon consisting of players such as DavCost, arch. They team did qualify for the offline qualifiers for MLG Columbus Major, However due to Visa issues they were unable to attend the qualifiers with their full lineup.
They attended the qualifiers with innocent and SZPERO. But they went out quite early suffering two heavy defeats. The team was not able to recover from those losses much and their bad form continued into their online performance later.
Arch released a statement , which read as follows :
“We would like to thank Team YP for everything they did for us and wish them the best of luck!,” he told HLTV.org.
“Unfortunately, our plans for the future were not the same. Our line-up was created three months ago, and we do not want our growth to stop.
“Our goal was to reach the Major, but we could not play with our full line-up, so we failed to qualify.
“We will be playing in all the qualifiers for big events and also in tournaments we get invited to.
“Until we find a new organisation, we will play under the tag Phenomenon. All organisations interested in us can reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Their current roster consists of
Dmitriy “Dima” Bandurka
Dmitry “S0tF1k” Forostyanko
Vadim “DavCost” Vasilyev
Vladislav “arch” Svistov
Anton “kibaken” Kolesnikov
