After many considerations and internal talks then it still saddens us to write and inform that our CS:GO team has decided to part ways. We have not been able to solve our team puzzle properly and the mismatch between having some players being able to pursue their dream full-time combined with some that does not have the freedom or flexibility have unfortunately been the deciding factor in the team disband.
The current path to top 30 in CS:GO is a long and bumpy road in EU, and even though we have been seeing growth and development then this year our CS:GO team have also had a turbulent period with things outside of the server, which has unfortunately limited our team potential for a while.
We are at a crossroad with the team and have decided that the best way for everyone involved to move forward would be on their individual paths. We wish everyone the best of luck going forward and thanks for all the great memories!
We asked the players and their coach to give a comment on their time here under the green SNG banner:
“First of all, I would like to thank the management and players of Singularity for giving me this opportunity. We have had a rough couple of months with changing players and playing with a stand-in, but as a part-time team I think we improved a lot and did well, even though we know we did not reach our full potential. A huge thanks to the players for their commitment and high spirit even though we had to rebuild repeatedly.
This was my first job as a coach, and with me, I take 4 months of valuable experience, ups and downs and new friendships. Also, we had so much fun despite our mixed results. I will continue to improve myself as a coach, and I am looking for new opportunities.”Martin “trace” Bang Heldt
“I want to say thanks to everyone involved in the Singularity project, it has been a journey with ups and downs, but it’s been fun and a good experience working with everyone. I’m still eager and ready to compete, as I’m looking to play fulltime CS moving forward. I’m super hungry and want to dedicate all my time into the game.”Oliver “IceBerg” Berg
“I have nothing bad to say about the team, we just couldn’t succeed as much as we wanted. We started to develop a lot in the last couple of months. We have different plans a head of us compared to how much we would like to play/have time to play and therefore its best for all of us to part ways, but we made some new relations and learned a lot from each other.
I wish all of the players the best, it has probably been the most bumpy road, but we still kept our heads high and tried to help each other inside and outside of the game.
My own plans are still insecure, but it won’t be the last time you will see my name on the Danish scene yet.”Sebastian “larsen” Larsen
“The time in SNG has been a turbulent one, I feel like our potential was much higher than what we showed, but not finding a fitting 5th has been draining. The 4 players + coach we had was a great fit, but with some of us being full time and some wasn’t made it hard for us to climb the HLTV rankings. For myself, I feel like I still have what it takes, I will keep my options open and see what comes my way.”Danni “smF” Dyg
“I have had a great time in Singularity. When notan was not able to play, we could not find the last fitting piece to the puzzle, so in my opinion it made it harder to make the results we wanted. I don’t know my future yet…”Nikolaj “holzt” Fruergaard Holst
“I’m sad that the journey with SNG has come to an end for me, but I’m still super motivated to play CS:GO and I finally have a possibility of going full-time as I finished my education this summer. I want to thank all the teammates I’ve had along the Team Singularity CS:GO team journey, and also thank the management in Team Singularity for taking good care of me and my teammates. I wish everyone the best of luck in the future, and hope our paths might cross again!”Anton “notaN” Gisselmann Pedersen
Lastly we asked our CEO and founder, Atle Stehouwer, for a comment on the team disband and the future of Team Singularity CS:GO division:
“Sometimes you’re able to piece the puzzle and other times you’re not, I’m sad to see the team disband, but I believe it’s the best for everyone to be able to follow their individual paths. I want to thank all the players and Martin for some great times, and I hope that our paths will cross again in the future and best of luck to everyone!
In regards to the future ahead of Team Singularity CS:GO division then we are exploring our options currently and interested teams and players shall fell free to DM me on twitter or send a mail with team/ player presentation if they’d like to be taken into consideration.”Atle Stehouwer, Founder & CEO
Team Singularity are not intending to leave CS:GO, and we are expecting to present a new team within August.
