It seems that the Croatian esports organization CR4ZY has agreed to sell its current CS:GO roster to an undisclosed North American organization, according to a report by HLTV.
Reportedly negotiations between the two organizations have been taking place since the past few weeks with the deal finally being made recently. Till now none of the organizations involved has made any official comment about the deal, it is however expected that the official announcements will be made soon.
Unfortunately, the future of CR4ZY is also unknown at the moment. Just seven months ago Valiance & Co had rebranded themselves as CR4ZY, and with Nemanja “nexa” Isakovic and Nemanja “huNter-” Kovac leading the charge they went on to enjoy a great 2019.
During these seven months, the team went on to qualify for StarLadder Berlin Major 2019, placing 9th -11th in the tournament. This was followed by a runners-up finish at Artic Invitational 2019 and a victory at DreamHack Open Rotterdam 2019.
Unfortunately soon after nexa and huNter- were acquired by G2 Esports, which resulted in a lack of firepower as the team underperformed at the remaining DreamHack Open tournaments like Atlanta, Winter, and Sevilla.
After failing to qualify for the European Closed Qualifier for IEM Katowice 2020, the team has really fallen off their winning track. This could be a major reason behind the organization agreeing to sell their team off to an unknown buyer.
Let’s see if these rumours turn out to be true and if the team goes on to see a change in their performance post this shuffle from one organization to the other.
The current CR4ZY lineup is as follows,
- Nestor “LETN1” Tanic
- Rokas “EspiranTo” Milasauskas
- Otto “ottoNd” Sihvo
- Luka “emi” Vukovic
- Georgi “SHiPZ” Grigorov
- Neil “NeiL_M” Murphy
