However, following the settlement, Ayush has quit the team and step down from his role at Eternal Esports. In an exclusive statement to AFK Gaming, he made a public apology and wished his now-former teammates the very best. He also mentioned that he will be taking a break from professional gaming for a few months to focus on personal commitments.
I would like to officially apologize to Entity Gaming for leaving the organization on such poor terms and for causing them any damages or ridicule. I have always wanted to settle things amicably with Entity Gaming and would like to thank Entity Gaming and its management for coming to fair terms of settlement. I will be leaving Eternal Gaming’s CS:GO roster immediately and would like to wish my former teammates the best for their future.

Siddhant Joshi, Manager at Entity Gaming, said,
“In between our pursuit of legal action against the ex-CSGO team, Ayush "Astarr" Deora, has now settled amicably with us. We will, however, continue to pursue legal recourse against the remaining players and management of Eternal Esports.

Ayush’s departure will definitely leave a dent on the team’s form as he has been a major factor in their recent performances. On this matter, Gautam Mengi, team owner and manager at Eternal Esports, said,
We support Ayush in his decision to move on from Eternal Esports. For his replacement, we were considering a few international options but are sceptical of communication issues and hence, might go ahead with an Indian player only. We will announce once we have more concrete plans.
