CR4ZY ends partnership with all their esports teams in 2020 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
The pandemic continues to wreak economic havoc on esports. On the CR4ZY official website, the organization has posted a message telling that they are terminating contracts with all their esports squads.
CR4ZY call the pandemic the main reason for it: the transition of tournaments online led to the fact that international squads were forced to play with technical restrictions, and the cancellation of The International in 2020 was the final step towards the change.
- Dota 2 roster (Bryle, KheZu, MoonMeander, Aui_2000) showed high results in North America. The team took second place on WeSave! Charity Play, ESL One Birmingham 2020, BTS Pro Series Season 3 in American divisions.
- CS:GO roster (Psycho, Sergiz, SENSEI, DemQQ, 7oX1C) stayed in the top 50 of the HLTV.org rating for several weeks (peak result was the 44th place) and became the champion of the Ukrainian stage of CEE Champions.
- League of Legends roster (Gabbo, DoubleAiM, Meightm Plox, Raxxo) took second place at Esports Balkan League Season 7.
Coronavirus is real btw :) - thanks to the people at CR4ZY for everything! https://t.co/OFZ8mwf9KJ— Maurice Gutmann (@KheZu) October 5, 2020
All players can find new teams as free agents, while the organization will focus on preparing for next year.
It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that an esports club goes into hibernation at least, breaking contracts with its players. A month ago, Reality Rift closed their Dota 2 roster. Around the same time, Geek Fam's team was disbanded. If earlier it was possible to draw a parallel on the regional (Southeast Asia is the place where everything is sad) or on the gaming affiliation (Dota 2 players suffer most from the current world's state), now this is another very alarming call.
CR4ZY came out of several disciplines at once, and we are sure that this decision was very difficult for them.
