The Japan-based esports organization, SCARZ has made an announcement recently stating the withdrawal of Absolute from SCARZ.
The news of the SCARZ parting ways with the Absolute’s line-up was confirmed by a tweet made by Tomoaki ‘crow’ Maruoka, which stated that the team had ‘decided to leave SCARZ on 13th November‘ and was actively scouting for ‘organization or sponsorship companies’ while continuing to ‘Pursue their goals to become Asian Champions’.
