Today we unfortunately have to bid farewell to one of our CS:GO players, Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom. During his time in the team, and following G2’s long-term partnership with Kinguin, Benrlitom confirmed why he is regarded as one of the most talented players in the Counter-Strike scene. Sadly, however, the latest results did not reflect the roster’s full potential, and the team decided that changing one player was crucial to tackle the communication issues they had been facing since the team’s inception
Benrlitom will continue his career in Titan, with whom we reached a smooth and very professionally-handled agreement for the player’s transfer. We would like to thank Benrlitom for his service and wish him luck and continued success for the future.
G2.Kinguin’s Operations Manager, Jamie “z1n0” Bach, gave the following statement about Benrlitom’s transfer:
“We were in talks with our new CS:GO team long before they signed, and one of the core issues we identified within the team, despite their gradual success, was poor communication. An issue that stems from the players not being native English speakers. Despite reasonable efforts to rectify the situation, the team expressed a desire to make a change to the lineup, which has now resulted in the transfer of Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom to a new team, where he is able to speak his native language and potentially play even better. There is no denying that Adil is a very talented player. He’s a great person and very professional to work with. We are certain this is the best move for everyone and wish Adil the best of luck in his new team.”
Benrlitom had this to say about his time at G2.Kinguin and his departure from the team:
“Hello, everyone! I have decided to quit G2 for personal reasons. The communication on the team had disappeared, and, as a result, the pleasure of playing together as team had diminished. I would like to thank G2 for all they did, we did not miss anything and they were always there for us. It is very important for players to have such an organisation and this kind of support! I hope I will have the chance to work with them again one day! I wish them the best of luck.”
During the next few days, the team will be holding tryouts for the fifth position. We will consider all avenues, including signing a player outside of Europe, before we arrive at a decision. Until then, we will be playing our online matches with stand-ins, who may not necessarily be the players we are trying out.
We would like to assure our fans that we are taking the necessary steps to build a stronger roster and that the team will be 100 per cent ready for the upcoming offline event, the DreamHack Open Cluj major, next month. Further updates about the future of our team will feature on our website and on our social media platforms in due course.
