Today we have decided to move Anton “notaN” Gisselmann Pedersen to the bench in our CS:GO team. Unfortunately, the pressure of final exams in gymnasium combined with lots of practice and officials is not a great combination, and therefore we have had to make the difficult choice to put Anton “notaN” Gisselmann Pedersen on the bench.
The timing is unfortunate for the team as we have been struggling to piece together a solid team puzzle for a while now, and this doesn’t make it easier.
“I don’t feel like I’ve been able to keep my head in the game for the past month, and the pressure of clearing my final exams have overwhelmed me. I feel like my teammates deserves a teammate that can focus on the server with them. I’m looking forward to be on the other side of education so I can go fulltime in on my CS:GO journey.”Anton “notaN” Gisselmann Pedersen, CS:GO Player, Team Singularity
“Unfortunately, we have to put Anton on the bench from today, due to personal reasons. It was the best for Anton, and the best for us, rather than having him at 25%. No doubt Anton has a huge talent, but it requires that he is there 100%.”Sebastian “larsen” Larsen, CS:GO Player, Team Singularity
“Not going to lie it feels bad that we once again get a setback in the CS:GO division, but you can’t control all aspects of the individual life and I respect the decision made by Anton. It’s very unfortunate timing, but I believe education is more important than gaming and I hope to have a highly motivated and dedicated Anton on the other side of his exams.”Atle S. Stehouwer, Founder & CEO, Team Singularity
